Never used a moving company before and was really reluctant on choosing one based on a referral, but they were... read more great! From the beginning they followed up a few times to make sure there was no changes to the reservation so customer service was excellent. I was moving into my first purchased home. They arrived early helped me box and wrap the last few items I had and the move went pretty smooth if I may say. They were very careful with all Items small and big and very professional while taking direct orders on where I wanted certain boxes to be put. Over all had a wonderful experience and wanted to thank you again! read lessVeronica L.Salt Lake City11/30/2016
I called these guys, after years of do it yourself and trying to save money. I found this to be... read more well worth the investment! HASSLE FREE!! I LOVE it!! I'm tired of U-haul, IT always turns out to be more than the $19.99 u expected to pay. Plus the unreliable friends or people with last minute changes leaving you stuck with a truck and no movers! on one of my moves I actually had friends of mine ROLL my round cherry wood table top for about 20 yards on the cement sidewalk from the truck all the way into my new apt. Now at every meal I sit and look at the damage along the edges of what was a beautiful table. Wondering how I might fix and more over how did they think that was good idea. So for my 3rd move in 3 years - I wanted hassle free and that is exactly what I got when I decided to go with a moving co. no arguments , no you OWE ME.. no damages and better yet MY FAV, IT WASN'T VERY EXPENSIVE!! YAY ME! GOING FORWARD as far as me and my back are concerned Chicago Cross Movers is the only way to go!! THANKS!!!! read lessMimo R.Chicago3/27/2016

Delivering a car from San Antonio to Los Angeles has never been easier! My friends dad was selling his car... read more and since we were good friends he gave me a good discount. I used the extra money left over to deliver it back home. I gave them a call , got a quote , and received my car on the delivery date.

Cross Country Movers is actually located in the Los Angeles area. As a result they did not arrive at my... read more San Diego condo until noontime and without the required floor covering which was clearly outlined in the condo's moving requirements which was emailed to the company. In addition the moving requirements clearly stated that movers were allowed the hours from 8 AM to 6 PM to accomplish the move. As a result the movers were unable to complete the packing and loading on the day of the move. They had to return the following day to complete the move. Fortunately I had the next day free but had to pay the condo HOA an additional $150 for the second day. So all of this is the bad news.The good news is that my household goods were transported from San Diego to Southport, NC on time and in excellent condition. This was the first move ( out of 7 previous moves ) where not one item was lost or broken. The packers were meticulous in packing everything including crystal glassware and china. It was a pleassure to work with these guys who were pleasant and respectful as well as very hard workers. My grandfather clock was packed in a wooden crate and arrived in perfect condition.I can highly recommend this moving company. The only caveat is that you should note that it will take time for them to get to San Diego and if you have a large amount of household goods it may take them 2 days to pack and load. read lessEdward P.San Diego4/06/2018
So I spent a lot of time searching through multiple companies trying to find the right one. I'm glad I... read more did because it sure did pay off. I came across this company and have never been happier. Out of all my years of life, I have never seen such professional service by a group of guys in overalls. I highly encourage everybody to go to these guys because they do everything in the best manner and provide exceptional results.I was worried how they would manage all the long hallways and lack of space within our building. They saw it as little trouble and quickly overcame the challenge, assuring me that I had chosen a reliable company and I could trust my things in their hands. Would totally use them again and would rate them higher if it was possible.They took their time to make sure all of our needs were fulfilled and things were packaged just as we wanted, very grateful for the service. read lessArthur A.Sacramento6/30/2016

Friendly, Reliable, Efficient - Literally all you could ask for in a good move. I expected issues and frustrations as... read more with any move, but the staff at Cross Country surprised me with a virtually seamless moving experience that checked almost every box. Everyone - from the sales people to the logistics coordinator to the physical movers - were friendly and organized. The physical move - both out and in - was taken with surprising care for our belongings. Items were checked in and out from departure to destination, staff followed-up with ETAs, and the sales people understood exactly what I needed. Cross Country provided a smooth moving experience that was shockingly good. Thank you Cross Country! read lessAlex H.San Francisco5/02/2016

Just had to take a few moments and thank them for the amazing job they did a few weeks ago... read more helping my parents move there furniture and belongings to their retirement home in Florida.

These guys deserve ten stars instead of five, if I could possible give them a higher rating I would. They... read more really are a genuine moving company that want to help families make easy transitions into new homes. If you have an doubts and don't know who to go to, choose these guys. They know what they're doing and will be there with you the entire time. I will definitely come back to these guys in the future if we need another helping hand to move a bunch of heavy furniture.I recommended them to all my friends and family in the off chance that they ever need professional assistance in moving they'll know who to reach out to. It took them about four days to clean out the entire house, garage, and basement. When I say clean out I mean they took all of our belongings and packaged them, later fitting them neatly into a truck ready to be shipped out. The whole process went so smoothly I couldn't be happier. read lessNatalie D.Santa Ana6/30/2016

I've moved many times over the years and I have only had 2 exceptional experiences, one of them from Cross... read more Country Movers. They paid special attention to all my items and wrapped them in plastic wrap and moving blankets, triple time. Nothing was missing or damaged........ not even a scratch :) The only concern that I had was in San Antonio, I had 5 guys wrapping and moving my belongings but in Fresno, only one. This guy was skinny but strong and knew his trade but I felt bad because he could have used at least one extra guy. Overall, the experience was better than expected because my belongings came early. Grace, the receptionist is very polite and respectful, be sure to give her a raise because not everybody has communication skills like she does! read lessCarmen K.San Francisco2/23/2017
After the last time my parents had hired a moving company they had constantly been in doubts about obtaining professional... read more help. They said that we could just call his brother and my cousins to help us out however even after all of us tried to get things packed up it was a mess. There was no sense of communicating with each other either like the movers did, they were very professional and you could tell that they had a lot of prior experience. The tools and dollies they used also provided essential help which helped with making the mobility of furniture both faster and easier. Totally recommend them. read lessMarine S.Baltimore9/16/2016

We had so many fragile equipment that we did not know how anyone could manage to transport all of them... read more without a single crack or scratch. Honestly we were ready for some things to break but we were not going to make a scene out of it since we realized just how much china and glassware we actually had to transport. Luckily, we were in the hands of some of the most professional movers out on the market and they managed to prove us completely wrong and move everything without a single mark.They began by placing several layers of bubble wrap and cloth in each of the boxes. They had these wooden and plastic crates instead of ordinary boxes which were not sturdy and could easily bounce against each other and crack. Within their custom crates there were fillers you could slide in to make sure everything stays into place, we received that as an add on to ensure the safety of the glassware. When our things arrived my grandmother had looked at those boxes first and foremost, she had a big smile on her face as everything was in perfect condition. If you are need of transporting valuable or fragile goods and want a company you could trust in, call these guys you will not regret it. read lessMelani F.Sacramento7/07/2016
Everybody says they are the best at what they do, however the best do not need to make the claim... read more themselves because others do it for them. And as I have noticed on the other reviews for this company, everyone seems to agree that they are very reliable and efficient as their company model suggests.We had gotten into contact with Cross Country through our neighbors who had recently moved in and could not stop boasting about how helpful these guys were. We noticed that the gentlemen stayed for hours and patiently helped them unpack and store everything into their newly purchased home. They seemed to know what they were doing and had all sorts of tools and gadgets that helped them move heavier objects. After we gave them a call they thanked us for taking the time to inquire about their services and then explained all of their prices, deals, and moving processes. From the types of boxes they used, to the length of shipping the belongings, even to the size of their trucks. They have a variety of selections for everything and even offer insurance policies in case of damaged goods, though we never needed it as they are very careful. All in all very hard working group of guys and we would definitely suggest them to anyone looking for professional help with a move. read lessNatalia C.New York6/22/2016
There's no way about it--landing on (and trusting) a moving company is stressful. That stress is immediately compounded when you... read more finally pull the trigger and submit a deposit--only to discover a wealth of terrible reviews directly after sending (three weeks before moving from Chicago to Los Angeles, mind you). Freaked out and scrambling to find an alternative, I stumbled on Cross Country Movers in a quick search. Impressed by the reviews, I called immediately. Dan picked up, I explained my situation, and not only did he save the day (and calm me down), but he kicked off what was the smoothest, easiest, most stress-free move ever. The cost was straightforward, especially since he sent an estimator to my apartment, so they knew exactly what I'd be moving (no surprises or hidden fees after the fact), and Dan continued to work further to get the number within my budget. I had to store my items for a few months once landing on the west coast, and that went off without a hitch--in fact, after a billing miscommunication (for the record, storage through CCM is free for the first month, afterward, you're charged an affordable monthly fee), Dan went above and beyond to fix the issue and bring the price down. When I was ready for my items to be delivered, they were sent promptly on a truck, arrived at my door with two extremely friendly, helpful guys, who unloaded and unwrapped my items within an hour, with not a single item broken or missing. A move with CCM is smooth sailing, from day one. I'm so glad and relieved I chose this service. Highly, highly recommend! Thanks, Dan! read lessShawn G.San Francisco4/26/2017

When is the last time that you had hired a company in the service sector and had received truly exceptional... read more service? That time arrives for us whenever we gave these guys a call and found out what a truly great group of movers are able to do for a move.

After getting into contact with these movers we were definitely much more relieved about this entire situation, it had eliminated... read more most of the uncertainty about who we were going to hire. What we were worried about the most was finding a company that was not only reliable but one that offered a quality service at an affordable cost. The places we had called before settling with these guys were not helpful at all and did not even answer our questions.Fortunately we lucked out by receiving a reference to these guys, they provided some of the most top quality moving service we have experienced in years. They were all friendly and knew what they were doing throughout the entire week, they literally took no breaks and did not stop until the entire job for that specific day was completed. My parents really appreciated this because it showed how much effort they were actually putting forth towards our move. They were not just trying to earn a paycheck and move on but rather they cared about helping our transition into a new place be a little bit easier. read lessJoe B.Sacramento9/14/2017

The best in the EAST!! haha moving to the west was a bit of a challenge. The amount of moving... read more companies in New Jersey was overwhelming. I didn't know what I needed or how to go about starting my move. I talked to a few ppl but I just heard the same thing "how many square feet do I have? How much stuff do you have to pack?" To be honest. I knew I had a lot but I was not sure about square footage. Well this company is for you. They came and saw what I have and took care of me. After our first meet I knew what I needed to do to help I felt like I was a pro. They broke it down for me and I was able to brake it down for them. They even offered to help pack and of course I took them up on that offer. It was a breeze. I was nervous , like anyone would be when there whole life is getting moved across country, but all my stuff made it in one piece and in one truck. Once we got to my new home which is now in Texas they unloaded all my stuff quick and carefully. I said where I wanted my furniture and they put it there with a smile. I highly recommend these guys.

Cross Country Movers were so great! They went above and beyond for us. We went from San Antonio to Colorado... read more and they were fun, nice, fast and good at their jobs.

The first few days seemed to be the most difficult as there was a lack of space for us and... read more the movers to get around. This made their job especially difficult as there was little leg room to carry large and heavy objects such as the couches and bed sets. Thankfully these guys had prior experience to such large sized moves and had the right tools to get the job done. We were surprised that for all the things they did, they charged us a very low rate compared to their competition.This showed us that they actually care about helping their customers and not merely making a profit out of the people who they help. This was one of the many reasons for this full rating, also because the movers that arrived to our house each day were friendly and had fun conversation while maintaining a stern work ethic. They knew when it was time to stop and talk but also when they needed to concentrate on the moving itself. All in all we were very satisfied with how things worked out, we were moved into our new place maybe four or five days earlier than our move in date and that was very exciting. We had almost half a way left to get used to the area around there as it was a completely new city to us. The movers that dropped off our stuff even came in and help us set things up to the best of their abilities. Of course my mother reminded them that she wanted to be the one who decided the overall furnishing and she's the boss. Great service, could not be happier. read lessSona Y.Denver9/13/2016

Cross Country Movers basically saved me about ~20 years from my lifespan. I had to move my car from Atlanta... read more to San Diego by a specific date, and the auto shipping company I was initially going through encountered some problems on the road which was going to delay my car's arrival significantly. You can only imagine how frantically I was calling around different auto shipping companies after this.Despite me calling on a relatively short notice, CCM was able to accommodate for me and quickly provide me with a range of pick-up dates. They were able to pick my car up on the first day provided and it got here within six days. Upon drop-off, the driver also allowed me to check my car thoroughly for any signs of damage (which there wasn't any of). While the shipment was relatively pricey, I would say it was much worth it given their honesty, level of communication, and high quality of service - and especially because of the time crunch I was in.

I called and Matthew helped arrange for a quote and handled all my needs over the past 6 weeks. They are very reasonably priced and their staff and crew are caring, responsible and committed to making sure I am happy. I called them on January 16th. On January 18th, Gurson came to my house and provided me an extremely reasonable price. I had a change in my schedule and I needed them to move my items a month earlier than scheduled. They quickly changed the move date. On February 24, a crew of 5 came to my house and meticulously packed and moved my possessions. It will be a few months before I see them and my possessions, however I feel confident and secure with my choice in hiring them. They are truly exceptional and provide the highest level of quality customer care and service. read lessKeryn R.Los Angeles3/01/2017

If i could give them 6 stars, I would. I needed to ship my car cross country(intentional pun) from DC... read more area to California.These guys are phenomenal. The auto shipping industry is full of crap. I spent a week looking for a company that was at least acceptable, and all i found was the same old story of brokers that get your fee and then leave you butt naked to duke it out with whatever shitty carrier transports your car only to receive it a month later full of damage or maybe even have it lost.They do broker but they also have their own truck/trucks. Jim was the first person I spoke to and gave me all the info and assurance I needed. Zero BS. I was fortunate enough to have one of their actual trucks be available to deliver my car. Everything was very transparent and realistic, without the heavy pushing to sign a deal like all others before him.Now the best part:They picked up my car Wednesday at 2PM and the car arrived to its destination Friday at 6PM ! It was mindblowing. I was quoted 7-10 days by Jim, but when the driver Tamaz picked up the car he quoted the real time which actually came to happen. They have 2-3 drivers on the truck and haul butt continuously to get this kind of turnover time.The driver personally always kept in contact with me and responded right away to tell me their location and when to expect the car to arrive.I was going to leave a nice review anyway, but just to prove my point even more, i actually got a feedback call from them recently to check how everything went and ask for feedback. I also got a $10 Starbucks gift card from them !If you get the chance, please use them. These guys are fantastic. read lessRaz V.San Francisco7/02/2018

I also shipped my car, it came in five days with no damage, they let me put a few items in my car which was helpful and they gave me a discount since i was also using their moving services.

I hired Cross Country Movers to help me move from Orange County, CA to Manhattan, NY. It was a great... read more and smooth experience, especially after hearing from friends and relatives how awful big moves like this can become. They have a very organized system in place, and they label every box and piece of furniture I wanted them to deliver. After counting up my total number of articles, they charged me a one time fee. Unlike so many other moving companies, they don't charge you based on the total weight of what they are shipping. This usually results in very low estimates before the move, and a very high total amount once the items reach their destination. At that point, you have to pay what they demand, or you won't get your items. I paid for everything when they arrived to pick my items up and that was it! The price was extremely reasonable. They also complied with all the rules and regulations that exist in the Manhattan area, and believe me, there was a laundry list of them including a delivery time that had to be Monday through Friday from 8am-4pm ONLY. Everyone who helped me was very nice, from the customer service representative to the dispatcher to the movers themselves. They also gave me a two week window as to when they would arrive with my things, kept me up to date daily on exactly where my items were at that particular moment, and actually delivered everything 3 days into my two week window. My things were delivered intact (all 52 items/boxes), with virtually no wear and tear, and that was that.

It's been a little while since I was prompted to leave a review for any kind of service, but I... read more guess what happened with Cross Country Moving Company is worth taking the time. Don't get me wrong, everything went well with my encounter with this moving company. It went so well, in fact, that I simply had to make sure everyone reading about the cross country moving experiences knows about it. I saw a lot of people here trying to right the wrongs of the world, and thought to myself: Hey, why not join them and help somebody?I assume what every moving company says on their slogans has to do with help and moving support. Cross Country makes sure you understand the meaning of the phrase 'moving comfort'. At first when I heard it, I laughed a little, thinking it was simply a marketing trick. Let me tell you, as a businessperson moving from one coast to another, from one town to the other, whose frequent moving escapades have left a mistrustful 'scar', I can tell you that these guys have completely surpassed my expectations. It didn't matter how quickly I needed to move, or the fact that I required some heavy objects to be transported, these guys have found a solution to every little obstacle. They had only left me with a 'to-do' list when I arrive to my destination, making sure everything else was taken care of. They went so far as to ask me if I wanted transportation arranged for my car as well, and I had no idea they also ship vehicles! Their delivery was immaculate. None of the bigger, heavier objects were damaged in transport (which I had the misfortune of experiencing in the past). Great care was taken of all of my belongings, they treated me and my personal stuff with such respect. I feel like that's very rare in the moving industry these days.I used to have gray hair coming out from the stress of the moving process. I honestly did. This experience with Cross Country Moving Company saved me more than a few nerves. I was pleasantly surprised how affordable for their standard of doing business they turned out to be. I was sure to tip the boys in the end. It made me so proud to see how easy it can be to do business with someone, and have your every request fulfilled, and how smoothly our planning of the move went. You can be sure by the way they talk to you that you are in for a positive experience. No one tried to trick me or add any fees. As, I said, if you don't want any additional charges, and if you want to work with a polite crew that is unrealistically professional, you can be sure to stick with Cross Country. Anyway, I hope this review helped any potential customers out there in need of some feedback! read lessHany G.Boston5/07/2017

I hate moving, but when my company opened a new branch they transferred me to Seattle from San Francisco. I... read more had a very short period of time to finish everything and start on my new work.

I am an archaeologist myself and I'm the only one who has a job in my family as well so... read more when I have to move - everybody follows me with no hesitation , however I think they're quite used to things like that already. During the past years we've moved a couple of times and I have no idea why does it actually go like this but my destinations always turn out to be located in opposite parts of the country so I'm pretty familiar with how long distance moving companies work. Basically I've always been quite satisfied with services we've previously used but our last appointment with one of them was called off at the very last moment and we had to book with another one instantly. Cross country seemed to be just another common moving company from the first sight but after a while I got it why it was different from the others: they were just perfect at loading stuff, I mean it, they really were! Just one look at the way they packed and moved it made me convinced in the eventual safety of my belongings. I've never seen any movers who would be this friendly, efficient and professional as well. I'm sure on booking one more appointment from u as soon as I'll be moving next time. read lessJoe S.San Diego2/15/2016

In fact while they did all the lifting and packing/loading things up I was able to focus more on the little things and cleaning up. I even utilized their storage services because I knew that I wasn't going to be able to take everything with me. That too was not expensive.

The movers from this company are truly some of the best in the entire industry, we witnessed this first hand... read more throughout a time period of just under two weeks. The first week was the more hands on period when the things were being boxed up and packaged into crates, then being loaded onto trucks. This took the most energy and a lot of time but the movers withstood the fatigue and long hours and made sure to do a proper job. Moving is definitely not one of the funner things to do on a Monday but for these guys it is just another day at the office, they helped make our transition into a new home a much easier process than we could have ever dreamt of. In all candor if it was left up to us things would have definitely screwed up or gone wrong and we would just make a huge mess out of a simple process that Cross Country was able to do.Their organization and communication styles were on par as they would manage to talk to each other and request help or equipment in different rooms. This is a very key aspect of making moves an easy job as you get things done faster with less complications and these gentlemen has mastered that task. If we had another move regardless of the length, distance, or the time we had to complete it I am fairly certain we would hire these guys again, great service. read lessNorvin N.Denver8/23/2016

Even though I did not end up using this company for my cross country moving needs, I was so impressed... read more by them and their customer service that it warrants a 5 star review. I worked primarily with Jake J., who was responsive, honest, and patient. He guided me through the process and followed up with me after we spoke on multiple occasions. When I asked him about a cheaper quote that I had received from a different moving company (they do their best to match quotes), he was honest with me about that particular company's reputation, providing me with links to unbiased and credible reviews (which were consistently poor and unfavorable). I know that some people may think that Jake was just trying to get my business, but he told me this: "Even if you don't use us, I would urge you not to use them. I'd be happy knowing that in the end you are in good hands even if it's not us." The main thing I gained from my interactions with Cross Country Movers was more knowledge. Moving can be stressful and confusing, but after speaking with Jake and asking him all sorts of questions, I feel much more confident in making moving decisions and choices. I truly felt taken care of with Jake. He was like my moving guardian angel! The only reason why I didn't end up going with Jake and Cross Country Movers was because my dad and brother are actually helping me out (the most cost effective option for me!). Jake was completely understanding and never seemed put-off by my decision-making. I recommend this company (and Jake) for anyone making a big move!! read lessLauren B.Austin4/29/2017
My biggest concern with moving was trying to figure out which so-called moving companies are the actual moving company or... read more are a broker who subcontracts out to an actual moving company. When I called in, I spoke with Matthew who explained everything to me that made clear sense.

I get there are some benefits to hiring a broker such as them finding the absolute lowest price in the industry however this is mine and my families belongings that are going across the country so I wanted to make sure I was in good hands.

Frequent Auto Transport Questions
Minneapolis a beautiful place with so much to see and do. Are you considering moving to Minneapolis? If you are, then you might need the help of professional Minneapolis Cross Country Moving Company. We are professional long distance movers that can help you move to Minneapolis and are considered to be among the best Minneapolis movers in the country. Before you begin preparing for your move, our long distance movers would like to tell you more about this wonderful city. Minneapolis is known among its residents as the “Twin Cities”. Wait, isn’t Minneapolis just one city? Good question. The name “Twin Cities” is used to refer to the whole metropolitan area, which actually includes two distinct cities - Minneapolis and St. Paul. The other one is capital of the state Minnesota, just for you to know.
Most people know that Minneapolis is cold, but what they do not know is that the locals found a way to overcome this weather barrier. The first rule is to dress in layers, at least six of them. How are you going to take them all off is unimportant for now. Concentrate only on surviving the cold. If you go to work by car, be prepared to spend an extra ten minutes on making it start. And what if it doesn’t? Don’t worry. There is a brilliant solution for you to stay warm. The magic word: Skyway! You can go to work, school, favorite restaurant or cafe, shopping, without having ever having to go outside. And we are not talking just about the places located a few blocks away. A large part of the city is covered with this indoor pedestrian walkway system that links countless downtown buildings. In fact, Minneapolis Skyway is the longest continuous skyway system in the world, spanning 69 blocks and seven miles. To find out more about it, click here.
Let’s get back to the weather. The lowest temperature ever recorded here was −41 °F (−41 °C) in January 1888. About 8.2 feet (250 cm) of snow fell during the winter of 1983–84. Okay, you get it, it’s cold. But believe me, cold winters should not be the reason to buy moving boxes and prepare moving supplies and go to warmer climates. Minneapolis also has very warm summers. The warmest one so far was in July 1936 with a record of 108 °F (42 °C).
In Minneapolis, you will experience a full range of weather conditions: snow, sleet, ice, rain, thunderstorms and fog. What a blessing! However, if you think that we spend our winters inside, you are wrong. We have Loppet Cross Country Ski Festival and winter activities for the whole family. Lake Harriet is one of the favorite local spots for ice fishing. It is a required sport if you plan to live here. Want to join? See more details here.
You probably already know that the state of Minnesota is known as the state of 10,000 lakes. But what you didn’t know is that we have more shoreline than California, Florida and Hawaii combined! Just over 90,000 miles, to be precise. Here you can enjoy water activities at all times, no matter the season. The City of Minneapolis area is home to more than 22 lakes. Even though there are so many lakes, they are pretty much always brimming with people. So it isn’t surprising that Minnesota has one recreational boat per every six people, more than any other state. Locals often sail during the nice days.
With 5,000 acres of park areas, Minneapolis has the best parks in the country. Precisely, 16.6% of the city is covered in parks and there are 770 square feet (72 m2) of parkland for each resident. The Trust for Public Land, in its 2013 parkscore ranking, reported that “Mini Apple” had the best park system among the 50 most populous U.S. cities. See all the wonderful greenness you can enjoy when taking a walk in this beautiful place here. Although we are not exactly the greenest city in the States, we certainly have the highest number of golfers per capita in the nation. Locals worship nature and enjoy all that she can give us. Almost 10,000 cyclists hit the roads, paths and trails every single day. Even during extreme colds, people carry out daily tasks riding bikes. This is why Minneapolis is ranked as one of the best cities for bikes in the world!
With 11 acres of more than 40 permanent art installations, the Minneapolis Sculpture Garden is the largest urban sculpture garden in the country. You will probably need a whole day just to visit these gigantic works. Whenever I feel down, I like to go and sit by “Spoonbridge and Cherry” sculpture. It always reminds me how small everything actually is. To find out more about all the wonders of the Garden, click here.
Shopping in Minneapolis
If you think that we ride bikes and walk all day, you are wrong. We love spending money, just like everyone in U.S. Maybe even more than others, since the biggest shopping mall in the country is located in Minneapolis. The Mall of America, located in the suburb of Bloomington, is the size of 78 football fields. Great place to go shopping. Especially if you know that Minnesota has no sales tax on clothes and accessories. To see current offers click here.
Eating in Minneapolis
Minneapolis offers great opportunities for dining out. Whether you are a true food aficionado, or you just enjoy a tasty pizza in the evening, Minneapolis is granted to satiate you. Some of the best Minneapolis restaurants are:

Minneapolis Cross Country Movers Review
Prices are reasonable and quality is high-level
This is a great moving company! I recommend everyone to try its services. Prices are reasonable and quality is high-level. I ordered the move AZ to NV, and movers were done packing and loading our 3 bedroom house in 6 hours! Four days later, all my belongings and furniture safely arrived at my new home, all without any cracks and scratches! I give them A+!
