Q & A

Answers to commonly asked questions from the experts on Thumbtack.

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.

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.

How much does it cost to move a couch?

It costs around $290, on average, to move a couch. However, your actual cost will depend on a variety of factors. Couch movers will often quote the job based on the size of the couch, as well as how far it has to travel. A larger couch, such as a sectional, will likely cost more money to move.

On the other hand, smaller couches typically cost less, as there are fewer sections and fewer people are required to move it. Some couches may be very delicate due to their age, or they may have certain decorative details that complicate the moving process. These may cost more as well.

Contact professional furniture movers near you to get estimates for your move.

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.

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. 

Is it cheaper to move your stuff or buy new stuff?

It often makes more financial sense to buy new stuff when you have the chance to sell furniture to offset the cost. The cost of moving your current furniture can sometimes be more than buying new things, particularly if the furniture is large or cumbersome to move. You can sell furniture online, or make a furniture donation and deduct it from your taxes (if it qualifies as a charitable contribution). Some places near you may even offer free furniture pickup when you choose to donate. 

If you have valuable furniture that would be costly to replace, however, it may be cheaper to move them. To find out which option is best for you, contact professional movers in your area to receive quotes and estimates.

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 do I protect my furniture when moving?

To protect furniture when moving, get furniture protectors. These will help cushion accidental impacts that may occur while making your way through tight spaces. You can also use furniture sliders for hardwood floors, which can make moving heavy or awkward furniture across your floors a lot easier than lugging it all the way. 

A professional mover near you will likely have these and other moving equipment to ensure your furniture remains intact and doesn’t damage your new — or old — home.

Can you hire movers to move one item?

Yes, you can hire movers to move one item. Single-item movers are usually more than happy to give you a quote, which will likely be based on a few factors.

One of the primary things to take into consideration is the number of movers it takes to move one item. For instance, if you want to move one item of furniture, it may take several movers — particularly if it is a challenging move involving multiple floors.

Very quick to respond, had leather recliner furniture moved along with a glass table and chairs and a couple of small cabinets! They wrapped up all the furniture really well and transferred from one location to another with no no scratches on furniture or walls! I would highly recommend this company.

Jaime and his assistant did a great job moving two large pieces of furniture. The whole job went very quickly and he was very responsive to my request. I would definitely call Jaime any time I need moving services.

So grateful for their help. Did a really great job moving our heavy furniture. We had some couches that I knew they were going to struggle getting out of our apartment, but they managed it somehow. I would definitely use them again if I needed to move anything. Highly recommend!!!

Jamie and his two sons were hired to move some furniture from a second floor apartment down 2 flights of stairs that were enclosed in a stairwell. One piece of furniture was a sofa-sleeper which weighed more than 200lb. Even with my son assisting, it took nearly 30 min to figure out how to position the sofa and themselves, lift it up over a portion of the railing, etc. Several times had to stop and try something different. The entire time, Jamie and crew were patient and professional. The furniture was moved with care and efficiently as possible. Additionally, Jamie was very good about promptly responding to my emails or phone calls. I would not hesitate to recommend Jamie Torres. Sandy H

They were very careful and made sure the furniture was placed where I wanted it. They made sure everything that was moved out of place was put back. I would definitely hire them again and will refer friends family for the same type of work.

The guys who showed up to help us move some heavy furniture into our apartment were super friendly and quick. They navigated the narrow staircases with ease and we’re careful with our things. I’d recommend to anyone and would hire again.

These guys were amazing! I had some very bulky heavy furniture and requested 3 movers because it was in the basement. I was worried they wouldn't be able to do it with just a duo, as it took three just to get it downstairs originally. I had nothing to worry about! These professional movers wrapped and protected everything. Their rates beat all the other movers. They were quick. Efficient. Careful. I would definitely recommend, and will use them again!

Although Leon had a full schedule for the week-end, he worked hard to coordinate being at my house in no time at all to complete the task of moving my big piece of furniture. He was dependable, good at what he does, fast, and friendly.
