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 toadd a bit extrafor 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.

Demidov Transport did an amazing job at preparing and transporting my items. They demonstrated care, empathy, and concern for my belongings. They also had a very affordable rate for 3 professional movers!! I gave them a 4 star rating and it a 5 because they used a van to complete the move; not a truck (which was needed due to the inventory of items) so this unexpectedly prolonged the move time. Also, the didn’t complete the move job in one day due to having to make 2 trips and experiencing a reported tire issue that prevented them from completing the 2nd trip within the allotted time frame to move into the new location. While they were apologetic about this, they could’ve been more proactive in communicating this to me- as it did serve as a major inconvenience to me. I would definitely recommend and use Demidov Transport for moves within close proximity and that can be completed within 1 trip.

No shows. Pricing, date, and time for the move were all discussed and set up. Morning of the move I called them to confirm and somebody hung up on me. Could not reach them thereafter and they did not show. I was due out of my apartment that day and was left scrambling to hire other movers who were available that same day. Terrible experience. -5 stars (if this were an option). STAY AWAY.

March 2022: Hudson County, NJ: Teddy Moving & Storage responded quickly to my initial request & were able to squeeze me in, knowing they were fully booked, accommodated me within the next day. I’d used them to move back to my moms house, as my initial plans fell through last minute. Personally feeling skeptical of having unknown people in my apt, I felt anxious… These two gentlemen movers, Nino & Vaso, both very professional, friendly, and efficient. They went out of their way to make my moving experience smooth. They properly wrapped my furniture, and handled everything with care, all furniture was left in the same conditioning it was in. Lastly, I want to point out, how they arrived to my mothers house, approached by her “overbearing ways” which they responded with respect and such grace. This act alone- went a long way. I will definitely consider using them again when I move out- in a few months. I highly recommend Teddy Moving and Storage ! 🙏🏾Thank you, all, involved 5 stars ⭐️ ⭐️ ⭐️ ⭐️ ⭐️

I chose CCS since I saw the 133 positive reviews on Thumbtack. Here is my feedback based on my experience. My move date was Oct 3rd 2016.1) The quote was sent to me via email 1 hour after I spoke to Ibrahim Seck (the guy in charge) 2) The Certificate of Insurance (COI) which was a requirement for my building was sent to me 45 minutes after I requested it3) The guys arrived at 9:30 AM. I was promised they would arrive between 9 and 10 since Manhattan traffic is unpredictable. Since I had a 3 hour block for my elevator, this was okay with me.4) The movers were super fast and efficient. Didn't waste any time5) I would definitely use them again for my next move6) My entire move for a 1 bedroom with tax, tips and toll came to $330. I spoke to 3 other people who were offering my flat rates and their estimates were in the $500-$600 range. Thank you Ibrahim and team!

I can’t select anything less than this. Worst movers I have ever encountered. I was charged almost double on the initial quoted price, and they were very adamant on the charge without clearly explaining what’s those charge we’re. They key charging by saying this is not included or that’s included etc etc... at one stage they had loaded my stuff on their truck and said We will not download to the new home until you pay all the extras - which I had never agreed. Worst movers....

We did a long distance move over 200m away. All in all, it was a satisfactory job. The most important thing was that our items got to our house in one piece, and that happened. Pros: - Very competitive and clear pricing - All items arrived in pristine condition. No dings to furniture, dirty upholstery, or broken items. - Friendly and respectful movers Cons:- Arrived ~15m late - Really slow to pack (but, we paid flat not by the hour) which delayed us getting on the road- Left many items unfinished (e.g. leaving shrink wrap on couches) — they did reassemble my son’s crib, though.
