"I think they had another long distance move the next day or something and so they were trying to compress our move as much as possible, but it felt like they were rushing us and like we had to work around their timeline instead of the other way around. Then their truck ended up breaking down on the drive up, so they were several hours late arriving anyway. To their credit, they were communicative during the process so we knew where they were and what their status was throughout. It did create additional complications though because their new arrival time was going to interfere with my husband picking me up at the airport, but they ended up being willing to wait for us to get back. The unloading process was much less efficient than the loading was. This is somewhat understandable because they only had two people instead of the four or five who helped load, and there are stairs at our new apartment but not at our old one, and the poor guys had a rough night dealing with the truck breaking down. But even so, it seemed to take a very long time, and our labeled boxes ended up in all the wrong rooms. We tried giving directions for where to put things but ended up just saying "f*** it just get the truck unloaded" because giving direction didn't really seem to help anyway. For instance, we said to put any unlabelled boxes in the dining room but (a) it didn't seem like they were looking at labels and (b) they seemed to default to putting everything in the office instead, which was actually the worst place to put miscellaneous things because it had the most stuff that DID belong in there. At a certain point it's not even worth correcting and you just need to get it done, but it meant that we had to spend extra time rearranging boxes and furniture ourselves after they left. So yeah...I have mixed feelings. I definitely think our move had extenuating circumstances and that they probably are much better than our experience indicated, but it was still a little frustrating. Ultimately, we we're better off than if we had used any other company because we didn't have to wait a week to get our stuff and the price was great. We appreciated their accommodating our last minute request for an additional stop and the way they handled the breakdown. But we did not appreciate the feeling of being rushed when we were already overwhelmed with other move stuff, and we wish that the unloading was more organized. I'd say 3.5 stars, but I would be willing to give them another try."

Q & A

Answers to commonly asked questions from the experts on Thumbtack.

How much does it cost to move a one-bedroom apartment across the country?

Professional movers can handle the hard work of moving your one-bedroom apartment across the country for you. You can determine what your move will cost by learning the rate your movers charge per cubic foot and how they factor distance into the total cost. Cross-country movers typically charge based on your belongings rather than apartment size because that determines how much work they will have to do. For example, a studio apartment that is crammed full of things will take more work and moving truck space than the contents of a three-bedroom apartment with very little furniture.

Cross-country movers may also have varying rates, depending on where in the country you are moving. For example, a company may charge $5 per cubic foot for consolidated moves along the East Coast and $6 per cubic foot for consolidated moves from the East Coast to the central states or the West Coast. A one-bedroom apartment costs approximately $1,500 to move across the country.

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 does it cost to move across the country?

The national average cost for hiring cross-country movers is $1,490-$2,220. A number of factors can affect the cost. One factor is the distance you want to move. For example, an East Coast-based moving company may charge $5 per cubic foot for consolidated moves along the East Coast and $6 per cubic foot for consolidated moves from the East Coast to the central states or the West Coast. Another factor is how many belongings you have. Most cross-country movers charge by the cubic foot.

The type of move you want is another consideration in cost. You can have your belongings moved exclusively and delivered on a set day, or you can opt for a consolidated move, which is less expensive. In a consolidated move your belongings are stored and transported with the goods of other customers who are moving to your general vicinity during the same general time frame as you. Your belongings should arrive within a one- to two-week window, rather than on a set day. If you want the cross-country movers to pack your belongings for you, the cost will also increase.
