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.

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. 

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. 

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.

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.

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.

I needed a freezer and sofa bed moved. They came early and had them moved in no time. They even helped my brother move some shelves. I would definitely recommend them and I would use them again.

I hired Pat’s moving for a first move at 8:00 AM on a Saturday morning and the movers called me at 8:30 stating they had just finished putting gas in the truck and would be at my pick up point in 30 minutes. They finally showed up at 9:15. The 2 guys that did the move were good, fast and careful so I don’t have any issue with their performance, but when you hire someone for a 8:00 first move, they should be there at a and not tell you that there is a 1 hour window that they have and that they actually have between 8:00-9:00 to arrive. I would understand there being a window if I was scheduled for a 2nd or 3rd move and the move before me could take longer than expected, but not on the first move of the day. 8:00 means 8:00, not 9:15.

This has to be one of the best moving companies available anywhere. Not only were they great at what they do, but they were also so considerate of my mother who was moving from her long time home. Kind, considerate and hard working doesn't even begin to describe them. They went above and beyond. Just great people and a great moving company. We are so glad we found them. Thank you, Pat and all!

Moving to a new apartment. The movers were very courteous and did their job well. Arriving at the old apartment a bit later than scheduled and then having problems with getting the truck started to come to the new apartment caused a few complications with getting stuff into the new apartment.

The guys did an excellent job of working steady to get me packed up while also being very conscientious to make sure nothing got damaged. I’ve got more moves coming up, and they are now my new go-to moving crew!

Pat decided that three men would be appropriate for our move during his pre-move estimate and they all worked diligently and efficiently throughout our move. They listened to some specific concerns we had about protection recently refinished hardwood floors in the new house and offered options about how to protect them. Our items were packed well onto their truck and effectively protected during the move. I had only two minor concerns about the move. We had to remove a couple of light fixtures and a handrail from the basement stairway as they were moving a couch and refrigerator up from the basement and I believe they mis-judged how they'd fit up the stairs. The couch left a small mark on the wall that was easily touch-up painted afterwards. Our treadmill was a little bit more significant in that none of the three men had experience enough to disassemble it. They ended up calling Pat, who came over and took it apart himself. It seems like he mis-judged its complexity during his pre-move estimate as he had some trouble getting it apart. We also needed to wait about three weeks after the move for him to come back to reassemble it. I'm sure we could have gotten him over more quickly had we pushed harder, but he got it done. All in all, I was pleased with their work.

Titletown quoted me a competitive price and was prompt and professional. They arrived on time and helped to move a heavy bath vanity up a narrow flight of stairs. They were very careful with my belongings and had a pleasant attitude. I definitely recommend.

The guys at Pats did an awesome job moving me. We had one small hiccup, only reason I can’t give five stars, but I would most definitely call them first if I ever have need for their services again!
