Q & A

Answers to commonly asked questions from the experts on Thumbtack.

What’s the best way to set up a consultation or an appointment with a mover during the COVID-19 pandemic?

If you’re trying to set up a consultation or an appointment with a mover during the COVID-19 pandemic, make sure to use digital tools to avoid exposure. When searching for movers online, ask if they’d be willing to do a video chat to assess the size of your move. This will be in place of the typical “walk-through” they perform, and they may be able to give you a price quote. You can also discuss safe strategies for completing the job during your call or video chat.

Are there ways to be safe if I hire a mover when social distancing?

If you decide to hire a mover, consider making adjustments to accommodate current guidelines. This may involve staying outside while the mover works inside your home or letting the mover handle only parts of the move.

It’s important to follow social distancing guidelines while performing any service work. For example, do not make physical contact with the movers, maintain at least 6 feet of distance between you at all times, and use digital payments instead of cash or a check.

Does a mover need to enter my home?

A mover will likely need to enter your home -- unless you’ve placed all of your belongings outside beforehand. To stay safe during the COVID-19 pandemic, you might to consider keeping all (or most) of the work outside and/or having at-risk individuals leave the house while the movers work. 

You can minimize exposure by doing a preliminary walk-through by video call instead of in person. Discuss your options with the top movers near you before hiring one.

Do movers offer remote or virtual services?

Movers generally need to be present to do their job. But if you come across a mover’s profile that states they’re offering remote services, you can contact them to see what those services include. 

How can I find out if a mover is considered an essential COVID-19 service provider?

Your local city or state’s government website is a great resource if you’re trying to figure out whether a mover is considered an essential service provider during the COVID-19 pandemic.

For a source of national guidelines, visit the CISA website’s Identifying Critical Infrastructure During COVID-19. On this page, you’ll find 16 categories of critical infrastructure sectors. But note that some -- not all --  jurisdictions follow CISA’s definitions of critical infrastructure. 

Can I use digital payments to pay for moving services?

Most local moving companies are likely to accept some form of digital payment. Particularly with the COVID-19 pandemic, more companies are likely to conduct transactions through platforms like PayPal, Zelle, Square Cash, Venmo, Google Pay and more. 

To ensure the mover accepts a platform you can use, you can peruse the mover’s online profile and see what is listed there. You can also ask the mover about payment policies during a consultation call.

What is considered a local move vs. a long-distance move?

Local moves are among the most common moves. Unlike a long-distance move, a local move is typically less than 50 miles and does not cross state lines. Generally, a local move only takes one day, and movers tend to charge by the hour. 

The definition of a long-distance move may vary depending on the moving company. Generally, a long-distance considered to be any move of 400 miles or more. However, some say a long-distance move is over 50-100 miles. 

Local Move

A move under 50 miles

Long-Distance Move

A move over 50-100 miles or over 400 miles; may also be called an “interstate move” or “out-of-state move”

Out-of-State Move

A move that crosses state lines; may also be called an “interstate move” or “long-distance move”

Interstate Move

A move that crosses state lines; may also be called an “out-of-state move” or “long-distance move”

Intrastate Move

A move that begins and ends in the same state, typically beyond 50 miles

Interstate moves require additional legal preparation and will incur additional costs for distance, the amount and weight of your items, the preparation required and various other factors. Moving companies tend to do an initial weighing of the truck, which you should be present for.

A move that crosses state lines is considered an interstate move or an out-of-state move. Contrast this with an intrastate move, which begins and ends in the same state, but is typically above 50 miles. 

To determine whether your move is local or long-distance, contact the best movers in your area.



How much does it cost for long-distance movers?

Long-distance movers transport your belongings across the country for you. No more renting a trailer and road-tripping from state to state with your entire house hitched to your bumper. Long-distance movers make the move happen so you can fly to your new home, suitcase in hand, and wait for your furniture to arrive. Nationally, the average price range for long-distance movers is $1,490-$2,230. The distance you are moving and the number of cubic feet the movers have to transport will both affect cost. Another factor in long-distance moving costs is whether you choose to pay for an exclusive move or a consolidated move.

In an exclusive move, which is more expensive, your belongings are the only cargo on the moving truck. The movers travel directly to your new house and deliver your belongings on a scheduled day. A consolidated move is more affordable because the movers transport your belongings along with those of other people, saving them time and gas — which means you save money. The downside is that your belongings typically arrive with a two-week delivery window rather than on a prescheduled day. Read reviews to make sure you can trust the company with your possessions to ensure a peaceful moving process.

How much do you tip movers?

It’s recommended that you tip your movers individually around $4 to $5 per hour. For example, if a team of four movers spends a half-day (four hours) on your move, tip each mover $20. Or, some people tip 5% to 10% of their total bill for small moves and 15% to 20% for larger moves.

If you’re moving across state lines, you may hire different crews to load and unload your goods. In that case, divide the tips between both crews. It’s also a good rule of thumb to add a bit extra for tipping movers if you have special circumstances that have made the move harder, like a spiral staircase or an exceptionally heavy sofa. 

Can you move furniture by yourself?

You might be able to move smaller items like nightstands, small desks, chairs and small tables by yourself. However, it’s best to get a professional mover near you to move larger items such as couches, dressers, armoires and televisions. 

If you do decide to move furniture by yourself, carefully lift and lower items and take your time.

Reviews for Marysville movers
Terry R.
Loyalty responded very quickly to my request. In less than an hour I had an appointment to move my daughter's furniture and belongings from her apartment to one next door the next week. They called the morning of the move to make sure the move was still on. They showed up on time and finished the job in less time than I thought it would take. She had some very heavy, bulky furniture, but they moved it easily along with a lot of boxes and small things. They cheerfully moved some furniture around for her as asked. I would definitely use them again for moving anything.

We had two movers help us with our move today and it could not have gone better. They were professional, kind and very fast. We didn’t realize quite how much stuff we had but they made the best of it and made sure we could get it in one trip, which was truly appreciated! We will never move again without calling them to help!

They arrived much later than stated, at 12:15 pm. They started working and the last box was unpacked at the new house at about 12:30 am. That was after they "estimated" 7 hours for the entire move. The movers were good, very careful (make SURE you get the full coverage insurance or they won't be), and worked hard. I would have liked a better estimate (he came to the house and did a walk-through, saw everything - and I even moved several SUV loads myself while the movers were there). It made for a terribly long day.

These guys can really pack a truck! They were personable and hard working. I appreciate their great job, especially moving my piano and my washer and dryer.

I had specifically asked to start on time due to additional services being performed at my location after the move. Crew arrived 35 minutes late but did communicate with me which I appreciate. Move was done quickly and smoothly. Items were placed as directed at the unload site and done under the minimum time limit of 2 hours. I would definitely hire this company again in the future.

I needed a vanity moved. It was large (6 feet) and heavy (344 pounds). Roberto provided a competitive price, arrived promptly, and carried the piece upstairs and placed it into my bathroom as requested.

We used them twice in the last couple months- found them on an app called Thumbtack. The first time, they were 2 1/2 hours late to our move which was an early morning appointment so they had no move prior. The movers themselves were great and the owners were apologetic that time and even offered us a discount. We decided to give them another try since they were nice about the mistake before and we figured they wouldn’t screw up a second time, right? Wrong. The movers were supposed to meet my husband at our storage unit at 8am Saturday. They were late again so my husband called the owners phone number, instead of answering she texts back "who is this?" Never once did she pick up her phone and actually speak to him, she would only text back because she said "she was in an important meeting with her kid". Turns out she had us down for the wrong Saturday. Told us they couldn’t get to us until 1pm and we had no other options but to take that time since we called other places and no one had any last minute openings and we needed to get into our new home as we are a family with small children. We had family pictures that later afternoon we had no choice but to call and cancel because of their second scheduling oversight. She never once offered us a discount and her word choice/tone over text was highly rude for someone owning a business when we are the customers and it was their mistake. She even texted my husband after the move was complete asking us "when her guys left our move”, isn’t that their job to know that information? You would think they would want to make it right but that’s the not the way they do business apparently. Completely shocked at their lack of care for customer service. Wouldn't recommend. Only plus is the guys who moved us did a good job and were very nice.

Alex was the only one who responded to my quote for piano moving! He contacted me within minutes of requesting a quote. I was able to set up a time for pickup/delivery the same week. They were careful with the piano and it was delivered in great shapea without issue. Price was very reasonable. Professional and punctual. Helped me put the coaster cups underneath the legs also. I would hire him again!

The guys we had did an amazing job. We had three pick up locations and then the final unload. They worked fast and did a great job. They were careful and diligent on making us satisfied!! Mercedes was very helpful on scheduling the move and was very professional, respectful and responsive. My only grip was the show up time was between 8 and 9 and they arrived close to 9:30. Still they worked fast and got the job done fast and well!! We are very impressed and highly recommended this company!! Thank you

The actual moving went smoothly, they treated my piano with care and my home as well. However they were very unprofessional in other respects. They were supposed to come the day before and informed the seller of the piano that they would be coming the following day, not me. (I was the one who hired and payed them.) When they arrived at my home they smelled strongly of weed, like they had hotboxed the truck on their way here. Upon leaving they decided to drive through my neighbor's yard instead of backing up and leaving down the street. They left sizeable divots in their front lawn. I would not use them again.
