"Overall very good with two small issues on a short haul (5 mile) move. Firstly, the crew showed up 20 minutes early (and it's a good thing they did - more on that below). The guys were professional, and worked hard throughout. If anything, they were a bit too careful with some of our belongings, i.e. disassembling and wrapping Ikea furniture that could have easily gone on the truck as-is. This led to a longer than needed loading and unloading time and relates to my principal disappointment. We provided an accurate picture of our belongings in advance, and told Max that we had a fixed window when we could move into our new place. Because of the slow loading, we arrived late to the new place and ran over our move in window by about 20 minutes. Having moved only 5 months ago, and not having changes to our belongings, we had a precise benchmark for move times. Our previous (long-haul) movers unloaded our belongings in 45 minutes where Dulles took just over 2 hours (same crew size). Largely due to technique - Dulles hand-carted everything to and from the truck, whereas our other movers made a large "wagon" out of a refrigerator box & a dolly to shift several boxes/furniture in fewer trips. I'm sure Dulles will make the case for taking greater care, but I felt this cost us about 1-1.5 hours in total in the course of the move. This again, could be a selling point, but my disappointment stems from 1) not being asked if we wanted the Ikea items wrapped, and more 2) not being given a better time estimate given that they do this all the time, were told our time limitations, and were provided an accurate inventory. Also didn't help that they rounded-up to the hour about 25 minutes after finishing late. We had minor language issues as others have cited (and may be why we weren't asked to wrap items), but overall, still 4 stars and very good, just didn't need the additional stress on the day or fees. Would recommend, but budget accordingly for time & cost."

Q & A

Answers to commonly asked questions from the experts on Thumbtack.

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.

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.
