"We hired Nation Capital Moving for a local move with a very short turnaround time - we contacted them on a Thursday for a move the following Monday, as that was the earliest we could move into our new house and we needed to be out of our old house by the following Wednesday. Justin contacted me and set up a free in-home estimate within 24 hours of my request. Peter, the Operations Manager, visited my home, took stock of what needed to move and gave me an estimate. I was looking at multiple providers as options, and Peter negotiated with me for what we both considered to be a fair price. In addition to packing and moving our house, we needed to move items that were in a storage unit. Our estimate factored in services for both locations, and Peter provided a binding, not to exceed price. On moving day, Monday, Peter showed up half hour early with 3 other men - Vlad, Santos and Roberto. When they arrived, all paperwork for closing on the new house had been completed but we were still waiting on the keys. We decided to proceed with getting items onto the truck and Peter and his team got to work. They worked efficiently, with two men staying at the house to pack, while the others went to the storage unit to load the truck. Ultimately, a minor administrative hiccup prevented us from getting the keys on Monday and Peter was extremely flexible in storing our items at their truck overnight and returning the following day to complete the move. Obviously, this was not factored into our original estimate, but Peter honored the original labor estimate, charging us only an additional fee for storage and travel time for the second day of service. They returned on Tuesday afternoon with our items and helped us successfully complete our move - unloading boxes into the appropriate rooms, reassembling furniture at the new house and ensuring that we were satisfied with their service before they left. I accidentally gave Peter $100 extra in cash when I was paying the final fee, and he brought the error to my attention and returned the overage. I am so pleased with the service we received from Nation Capital Moving and would hire them again! They are diligent, hardworking, and honest and communication throughout the entire move was great! Thank you so much for making what was already a stressful situation that much easier."

Q & A

Answers to commonly asked questions from the experts on Thumbtack.

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 โ€” 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 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 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.
