What Customers Say About Our New York City Cross Country Movers
We used Cross Country to move my mother's things from New York City to three locations: San Francisco, Seattle, and... read more New Hampshire. I worked with Patrick, who understood the emotional situation as well as the logistical situation, and talked me through the challenging parts of this move. I insured some special things (mirrors and furniture) with Chris, who was also kind and careful. They kept the price as low as possible, and we didn't end up paying for extra boxes or extra packing. For pick-up day, we had an orderly, helpful group of people come and finish the packing of furniture (and even a piano) and took great care with our things and did a terrific job. Each item (box or furniture) is tagged with a computer number, and can be tracked. At each destination, the movers brought our things where they belonged with care. I was incredibly impressed with this company, and would highly recommend them and would definitely use them again. read lessSusan F.New York4/07/2018
Used Cross Country Movers to move 20yrs of New York City life to Venice California, they did it in record... read more time for a fraction of what the other guys wanted. They seemed earnest and trustworthy and they proved it.Pick up and delivery were seamless, polite staff and extremely attentive team at their HQ.I would definitely use them again in the future. read lessMiles S.New York1/29/2018
Great experience from start to finish. Found cross country movers on yelp. From the first call they were professional, responsive... read more and easy to work with.

Great service! I hired Cross Country to move my vehicle from NV to NJ (over 2,500 miles). They had the... read more best price and the friendliest staff. They picked up my vehicle from my home and delivered it without any troubles. My vehicle arrived unscathed and right on schedule. I highly recommend Cross Country's services. If I ever need to move my vehicle again, I will definitely call Cross Country Movers. read lessMohammad N.New York12/13/2017
Overall my experience with Cross Country was smooth. See below for more detail. I decided to write my experience out... read more step by step to give you a good idea of the whole kit and caboodle. After doing a ton of research, hiring a mover still seemed daunting because almost every company has some bad reviews. Ultimately I went with cross country because a friend who had just done a similar move recommended them to me. They charged less than anyone else - I had a leftover moving budget that I was able to put toward airfare and other expenses. Some good things that happened before they picked up my stuff:-They were willing to price match lower estimates. -They didn't harass me with phone calls trying to earn my business. Once my number was out there with other companies I would get an insane number of calls daily. -I liked that they price the move based on items. I've heard that the companies that price per cubic foot tend to estimate low so that you pay an overage in the end.-I was able to pay half up front, and half upon delivery.During pick up:-The crew was on time and professional.-The only downside was that I literally didn't know what to do with myself. I wish I hadn't packed all of my books up. It was the first time I didn't move myself - it felt weird to just sit back and relax. -They did a thorough job packing the items I had for them to pack. They didn't try to gauge me by under packing boxes, put instead fit what they could to make the most of the space. I had estimated 18 medium boxes, but instead had about 20 small-ish boxes and 6 large. They decided to be fair about it and not charge me extra. -They dissemble your furniture for you. Even my crappy Ikea bed frame. -They got everything out in less than 3 hours. Waiting time:-I was happy that they had a 14 day guarantee. Understand they mean business days.-My shipment came in about 10 days. It was from NYC to the Denver area. -I wish they would have had a tracking tool comparable to UPS tracking so that I didn't have to keep emailing my contact about the status of the move. Delivery:- It was very fast. - They reassembled my furniture quickly and placed everything however I liked. I think they did it in 45 mins. It was definitely under and hour. -I only had one item break, it was a box that I packed myself, and in hindsight I probably could have done a better job. During a follow up call I told customer service about the breakage and they insistent that make a formal claim. They fast tracked the reimbursement. That process was super easy, especially considering I didn't think they'd give me anything for a damaged item I boxed myself. Obviously the pros to my experience are above. The biggest con is wait time - If you can't wait up to two weeks for your things I would recommend just u-hauling the stuff yourself. But I have to say, for just a little bit more $$$, I really enjoyed not driving across the country and the general lack of manual labor that was required of me. I've worked harder moving two blocks away. (Like I ended my essays in 5th grade) In conclusion, if you're looking to hire a mover, you should hire these guys.P.S - One that thing is that during the process I noticed there are SO many different websites, yelps, addresses, logos and names for the company - which I found a little sketchy. If you're like me, just ask one of the agents for a link to their BBB rating to ease your worries. This is something I hope that they fix, because it doesn't help their credibility. (although it didn't seem to be a problem in the end.) read lessRachel H.New York12/07/2017
Cross Country Long Distance Move made quite an impression and did an exceptional job. I was moving back from Northern... read more Cal from Illinois, and I needed my car transported back out here quickly. Price was very fair if not better with the service. No hidden or additional charges. The Cross Country team was professional, friendly and demonstrated good customer service. The communication was incredible! I very much appreciated the reps contacting me to update every stage of the transport from scheduling to the pickup, transport, ETA, delivery and post delivery. On top of it, the service was fast. The original ETA and my own personal expectation was 6-7 days but it only took 4 days. The pickup was mid-morning Monday, I flew out Tuesday and the car was here by that week Thursday morning. The car was delivered in the same new condition as it was picked up.I know I'm forgetting another rep and the driver, but Bruce Thomas, Scott Baskot, John Mendes - all were great to deal with. When I finish out subletting my condo in Chicago, I'm using Cross Country again to move everything else back to California. read lessCy W.New York11/28/2017
Easy to coordinate our move from Chicago to New York, even though we booked it last minute.

I was very nervous about having movers take my stuff but Cross Country Movers did an EXCELLENT job!

I moved from New York City to Los Angeles and spent a lot of time researching and getting quotes from... read more various cross country movers- Cross Country Long Distance Movers had the lowest quote and best reviews so I picked them. My agent was Jordan and he was incredibly nice and responsive when it came to obtaining quotes, inventory, scheduling, etc. Overall, the planning and execution of the move was simple and smooth. The only exception was the crew in New York arrived much later than the specified window but they were able to complete the packing and move-out in 3 hours. Though the initial quote was lower than other movers, the final amount was accurate and did not increase. Also, all of my items arrived without damage. Would definitely recommend. read lessChris D.New York9/01/2017
I just moved from NYC to Fallbrook in San Diego County. I used Cross Country based on the great reviews... read more on Yelp and elsewhere even though they are thousands of dollars less than he estimates I got from Bekins and Atlas. Usually less expensive things are lower quality but this isn't the case for Cross Country. The one downside was the move took a week longer than the other companies but considering how much money I saved it was worth it. My sales rep was Richard and I spoke with him and his associates many times during the move process.This was my first move using a moving company. I packed and boxed most of my things myself but had Cross Country pack the more expensive/large things like computer, big TV and furniture. Standard insurance for all moving companies is free but also provides only a tiny fraction of the replacement cost. I bought additional insurance but this only applies to what the movers pack. I'm not fully unpacked yet but no need for a claim so far and I don't think there will be.Cross Country did not send an estimator to the apartment. I worked with Richard to figure out how much stuff I had (difficult before packing it up). As it turned out, estimators from other moving companies came by and gave a higher estimate of the quantity than I originally decided. Richard revised my estimate upward based on this and it turned out to be right on the mark. The price increased a little but not much. Having an on-site estimate is very helpful if you can get one.Cross Country has business arrangements with local moving companies. On the NYC side, Uru Maya was the local company who brought my stuff to the warehouse for loading on to the cross country tractor trailer. They were superb. Gonzales and his crew were more careful and meticulous than I hoped. Super friendly, informative and competent. Can't say enough good things about them. The things they packed were very well protected. The move was hard, since I was in a fourth-floor walkup but no complaints from the crew. Every box and item was inventoried and labeled by the movers and a master inventory list is kept. This was very reassuring and I was able to check off each item as it arrived here in Fallbrook.Francisco and his delivery crew here in Fallbrook were also excellent. They came two days before the end of the estimated delivery window. The roads here in the hills are narrow, twisty and steep and that's true of my driveway as well. They got the truck here fine and brought everything into the house in under an hour. I was given all the time I needed to unpack and inspect the insured things in boxes like the computer. They unwrapped all the furniture and took away the moving materials of everything that was unpacked.Moving is a very stressful experience but using Cross Country made it less so. I got calls directly after the NYC pickup and Fallbrook delivery from Cross Country to see how the move went and if I was happy. John, the Quality Assurance Manager, also called me after delivery to see how the move went. He asked if I'd leave a review on Yelp. I think so highly of Cross Country I joined Yelp so I could leave this positive review. read lessKim M.New York8/25/2017

I move exotic cars across the United States frequently, however this was the first time I purchased a "regular" family... read more car in Florida with transportation to California. I looked at all the reviews and Cross Country Movers looked like my best shot. Don't get side tracked by a bad review from a consumer that uses a transport company once in ten years. I truly use these companies multiple times a year. I called and spoke to "Jim Watson" who I immediately recognized as a man who knew what he was doing. He was honest, attentive and forthright with his answers to my questions, so I booked the move. There was a small communication problem between the seller and myself. I emailed "Jim Watson" on a Saturday and received an email within the hour! Jim assured me that he would go in first thing Monday morning and make things right. True to his word he took care of everything! The car was delivered in a well kept car hauler with a very attentive driver who was also very meticulous about the care of the car while in his possession. I can attest to the professionalism of this company and I would ask for Jim Watson! read lessEric S.New York4/12/2017

We had a long list of duties for the movers we hired, but this list was prepared before even deciding... read more which company we were going with. We did not mind paying a few hundred extra bucks just as long as things were done properly and efficiently, and that is exactly what happened in our experience with the movers from Cross Country. These men are so organized and optimistic that no obstacle seemed like a challenge for them.At one point throughout the day the elevator in the building broke down and the movers had to resort to carrying most of the things up and down the stairs. It was so reassuring when we found out that they did not see this as a problem but rather as a way to work out, they had fun with the whole move and it helped us relieve some stress also, totally recommended. If we had to do this entire thing all over again I would choose to hire these same guys again without even hesitating. read lessMane K.New York8/31/2016
I was very surprised when these guys were truly able to deliver for us, we had a lot of needs... read more and expectations and they were all met by these wonderful movers. My parents have very keen attention to detail and they like things to be done the right way, and failure is not really an option for them. They were not concerned too much about the cost of the entire moving process but just wanted to make sure whoever we hired would be experienced to handle such a relatively large move. We had about five rooms in total that needed moving as well as several closet spaces and various other small parts of the house that contained furniture. We did as much of the packing as we could but when they movers arrived they went beyond, they duct taped all the boxes a certain way that made it easy to open later. They also labeled all of the boxes from whose room it was in and the type of material inside of it, this made things so much easier when we were unpacking everything.These guys are the very best at what they do and we witnessed that first hand, out of all the companies we contacted for help they were the first ones that promise to deliver. And they did, very efficiently and we did not have a doubt in our mind after they arrived at our place. After four days and some change, we had managed to empty out the entire house. All of our stuff was immediately shipped to the new location and we received no later than three days after the move was completed. Awesome company and very friendly staff that we worked with. read lessIlda B.New York8/30/2016
Let me just start by saying that these guys really saved me a massive headache and hassle when I was... read more looking for a affordable moving company while researching online and this one caught my attention so we decided to give them a try. cannot thank them enough for being able to help me with moving my stuff. First day I called and talked to them on the phone and decided a day and time.They were super nice and super professional which caught my attention and gave me the trust and confidence that they will do a great job and what was best about them was they were super flexible with my hours as I have a very tight schedule between work and school.On the day of the moving they even came twenty minutes early prior to the scheduled time and by looking at how much there is to move, they provided an approximate estimate, called a few extra guys for help and got started. I really didn't have to tell them to be careful or not damage anything. They were so gentle with all of our things as if they were handling delicate, priceless objects, but they really were not.They noticed for example that they were having a very difficult time moving the sofa with only two people, so they called their other partners to come and help them take it downstairs. What really caught my attention was that they had their boxes and wrapping stuff with them to wrap neatly and many things got placed in the boxes without causing a complete mess on the floor.Some of the gentlemen even stayed about forty minutes after everything was completed to help us clean up, could not have been more grateful for their help. read lessTatiana B.New York7/06/2016

Also, I agree with the other folks who mentioned how crystal clear the terms are. You know exactly what you could potentially pay from the time you schedule the move to when it's finally done.

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.

About New York, New York
History has happened in it, songs have been sang about it, books have been written on it. It has even been dubbed the Capital of the World. Does The Big Apple really need an introduction?
New York, New York. The city so nice they named it twice. It is no wonder you are considering moving here. Who wouldn't want to stroll down the streets once walked by the likes of Woody Allen, Humphrey Bogart, Henry James, Stanley Kubrick Edgar Allan Poe, and many more? It has been said that moving to New York is the best thing that can happen to a young adult. Luckily, Cross Country Movers is here to make your dream come true.
While moving to another state is an enriching and empowering experience, it is also a difficult one, and not only from the technical point of view. The cultural shock of suddenly calling a whole different city your new home can sometimes be overwhelming. This is why it is important to get to know your future residence a little better before you actually move. Without further ado, here are some things you should know about the Big Apple.
New York's metropolitan area lies on over 13,000 square miles of land and is populated by more than twenty million people. The city is divided into five boroughs, Manhattan, Brooklyn, Queens, Bronx, and Staten Island. It, however, has several hundred different neighborhoods. Before you start packing, it might be a good idea to explore these neighborhoods and decide which one fits your needs and requirements.
In order to make the task easier, you could start by creating a list of the most important criteria. For example, how important is it for you to be close to your new workplace? Would you prefer a quiet family-oriented neighborhood or a loud one populated by young people? Would you prefer living in a condo or in a house? Do you own a car? What is your moving budget? Once you have decided what it is that is the most important for you when it comes to choosing which neighborhood to move to, it is time to take a look at the neighborhoods. We have compiled a list of several ones which have been ranked the best New York neighborhoods in 2016.
- Tribeca. Tribeca is has a little bit for everyone. It is home to great public schools, and is a relatively safe neighborhood, but the costs of living are not the lowest ones you can imagine. While a job in this area might be a little harder to come by, it has great opportunities for outdoor activities, as well as great night clubs.
- Battery Park City. This neighborhood is only slightly less expensive when it comes to living costs, but it is also a little safer. The education and health systems are both in great condition. Living in this neighborhood would also mean having a significantly short daily commute. Just like Tribeca, this neighborhood offers amazing nightlife and outdoor activities.
- Roosevelt Island. This one is a little quieter than the previous two, as it is not considered much of a nightlife epicenter. It does have good schools and is quite safe, but the costs of living are relatively high. Its population is very diverse, and you would be pretty close to all of the important institutions you might need.
- Brooklyn Heights. This neighborhood carries the title of New York's first suburb. And yes, that means longer commutes. However, this is probably one of the best neighborhoods in New York for starting a family.
- Kips Bay. Kips bay is another quiet area ideal for raising children. It is well connected by public transit and it also has a commercial strip mall. Surprisingly, Kips Bay is also one of the most affordable areas in the city.

New York City belongs to the humid subtropical zone, while bordering the continental climate as well. With about a hundred cloudy days a year, this city's weather is quite changeable. Winters are cold, windy, and wet. Average January temperatures slightly exceed 30 degrees. This is not to say that there aren't oscillations, since temperatures drop to as low as 10 degrees, or jump to as high as 60 several times during the same month. Summers are relatively hot and humid, and the average daily temperature revolves around 76 degrees in July, with almost twenty days of 90+ degrees during the whole summer. The city sees about 50 inches of precipitation a year. While hurricanes are quite rare, they have occurred before.
Costs of Living
Bear no illusions. Living in New York City comes at a price – and not a low one. Monthly rent for a 900 square feet apartment in an averagely-priced area is just a couple of dollars short of $3,000, while monthly utilities for the same apartment revolve around $200. If you don't have a car, the monthly public transport ticket will cost you extra $120 (the NYC metro does run 24/7, which makes it worth every dime). To see a more in-detail report, see the average costs of living in New York City.
While calling the Big Apple your home comes at a price, you will know exactly what you are paying for. This city has something for everyone. Whether you are young or old, male or female, a student or a professional, an outdoor person or a computer geek, you will find out that New York City is the place for you.
While many cities flaunt the title of the “cultural capital of the world,” New York is one of the rare ones that really has the grounds to do so. Numerous cultural movements began right here, namely Harlem Renaissance, which helped promote African-American literature. The city was a major center of jazz music back in the 40s, and some thirty years later, this is where hip-hop was born. Today, New York City is home to more than two thousand cultural organizations, and flaunts over 500 art galleries. If you are passionate about art, make sure you visit the Metropolitan Museum of Art, or MET. If theater is more your thing, welcome to the theatrical center of the world – Broadway.
The FoodThis is a tough one. If we could, we would probably dedicate a whole book to the food you can try in Big Apple. Since we had to limit ourselves to an article, here are some of our favorites.
- For pizza lovers, Artichoke Basille's is the place to go. Owned by two good friends and pizza aficionados, this restaurant is sure to satisfy even the most insatiable customers.
- If you are more into Mexican food, head over to Café Habana. Our personal favorite – Grilled Steak and Corn Salad.
- What about Greek food? For great Mediterranean meals, head to Nerai. Make sure you try their delicious crescent duck moussaka.
- Make sure that once you are done with all these mouthwatering meals, you have enough space for a slice of the iconic New York City cheesecake. Ask any New Yorker, and they will tell you that the best place to try this delicious dessert is Junior's.
A great thing about New York is that it is the melting pot of uncountable different cultures. No matter who you are, you are not going to feel like an outsider once your chosen Houston movers help you settle in here.
Around eight hundred different languages are spoken in the boroughs. In fact, New York even has an Endangered Language Alliance for languages such as Garifuna, or Nahuatl (no, we've never heard of those either). The religions of New York City are many as well. While most New Yorkers are Christian, the Jewish, Muslim, and Buddhist community also make up for a large portion of the population, and so do those with no religious affiliation. The city has a developed LGBT scene, with countless theme parties for everybody.

New York Cross Country Movers Review
They were able to provide advice regarding every aspect of the move!
I moved to a new apartment in Marina del Rey, CA from Seattle, WA. If you have never dealt with state to state move, it’s definitely a challenge. It was great to have help of guys from Cross Country by your side. They all proved themselves as great professionals who were able to provide advice regarding every aspect of the move! I enjoyed our interaction a lot, even considering the fact of moving being stressful. One of the reps called after the delivery was made and asked how everything went. Definitely couldn’t complain!
