What Customers Say About Our San Francisco Cross Country Movers
Great experience. We relocated from California to Illinois. The process couldn't have been any smoother from beginning to end. Packing... read more up your life into cubic ft or lbs. can seem quite daunting. Cross country movers highly professional team did an outstanding job every step of the way. Their quote was spot on with no additional charges. read lessMichael H.San Francisco1/11/2017
We moved from San Diego to Florida. They were very quick getting us our stuff, which was great (10 days).... read more Nothing was broken. However, make sure you are giving them an accurate count of boxes when you are getting your quote. If you are not accurate, your price will go WAY up. ($1500 more for us). On the day of the move, it isn't possible to choose another mover, so you are stuck with the extra bill. Also, they had promised me a dedicated person to help us with questions, who I called and emailed several times during the move. He never got back to me. Just a word to the wise...not 5 star service. But at least our stuff got there in one piece and in a reasonable amount of time. read lessLaynie B.San Francisco4/23/2017
I went from San Francisco, CA to San Ramon in the last November. The Cross Country Movers superbly completed my... read more move. I have no option but awarding them five stars. It was not low-priced but quite reasonable. Jake and peter were very supportive and courteous. The guys made my move really great. They took excellent care of my antique items as well as furniture. They piled up different boxes in a room. All the boxes they brought were neat and clean. Nothing got damaged or broken. I was delivered all my possessions intact at prompt pace. I will surely hire them in coming future and definitely recommend them for any sort of move. read lessAnthony R.San Francisco4/23/2016
I used Cross Country Movers to have my car transported from GA to CA. Everything went perfect. The driver was... read more very engaged in staying connected with me from the time he arrived to pick up my car to the day he delivered the car cross country. I was extremly impressed with the service from the sales department - my initial call to the car delivery.If I do have a need for another car transport, I will definately use them again and I highly recomend them. read lessEllen G.San Francisco5/04/2018
We hired this company a few months back to help my buddy move from the Bay Area. What an awesome... read more experience! Their employees were super careful in moving her things and very friendly. They took directions really well and the best part is that nothing was broken during the move which is very rare. I would highly recommended using them if you're considering a quality moving company. read lessLance B.San Francisco10/17/2016
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. I had a great experience with Cross Country Movers and recommend it to anybody and everybody!-Greg read lessGreg M.San Francisco8/03/2016

From the beginning of the process until the last box was in the new home, they were helpful and seemed to genuinely care about the well being of our stuff. The movers were awesome.

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

This was my first time using a moving company to relocate. For all my previous moves, I've rented a truck... read more and done it myself. But this time I wanted the professionals. There are lots of horror stories about moving companies but NOT with Cross Country Movers. They helped me move from Santa Clara, CA to Chicago, IL. Patrick helped set up my in home quote and answered all of my questions along the way (and I had many questions for him). He was patient and thorough. The movers arrived on time and were efficient and careful packing and loading. They'll text you updates concerning your belongings so you know where they are each day. The movers who unloaded were also efficient and careful. The whole process was easy and I felt like I was in good hands the whole time.

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
Had a piano, leather furniture and a wooden coffee table shipped from a house in Georgia to a 2nd floor... read more condo in Huntington Beach. Movers were friendly and efficient, and took great care of the furniture. It arrived quickly (well before the end of the 2-week window) and in perfect condition. I also started receiving daily text updates about where in the country my furniture was once it left the storage unit in Georgia, and a call the day before the furniture came so I could make sure I was home and ready. Really easy company to work with, very reasonable quote, and when I decided last minute that I wanted to move an additional item (a coffee table) than I had originally listed, they didn't charge me extra for it. Highly recommend! read lessInez F.San Francisco4/03/2017

I was very pleased with how you guys moved all my large furniture, were careful with it, and didn't scratch up the wall or damage anything in my old condo! You guys are great and there's no denying that! I do also want to mention to the boss of this company, that you got some of the most honest and respectful young men I've met in a while, and when you have great employees it really reflects the greatness of the company.

Cross Country Movers handled my move from Brooklyn, NY to Los Angeles, CA with care and quality customer service. I... read more had less than a month to move across the US and choosing this moving company made my life a lot easier. The customer service leading up to the move was impeccable for someone who had no idea what to expect for a cross country move. Even when I needed extra explanations regarding the insurance and I did a conference call with my mom with customer service representative, Patrick, Patrick was kind and made sure that we understood everything. Patrick was also my point person through out my entire move which I appreciated so that I was always speaking with someone that knew all the details of my move.The movers on both sides of my move were superior. I especially give a lot of credit to the gentlemen that moved me in Brooklyn. My point person was super friendly, explained the process to me, and had delightful conversations with me. They were beyond helpful and careful with my belongings. When my things arrived in LA, it was a short turnaround to get my things into my apartment (I used the company's storage facilities in NY which was free, until I found a place in LA). The movers in LA were also super kind and made sure that I had all of my items.Also, I used this company to move my car from Georgia to LA and everything was done speedily and with proper handling.I found Cross Country Movers on Yelp and I found that they had the most competitive pricing by a few hundred dollars.Overall, it was a blessing that I found this company to handle my move. I definitely recommend this company by far! You will receive kind and quality service. read lessDeidre M.San Francisco11/27/2016

My car and all my belongings were shipped from California to New York City. The whole process went very smooth.... read more The pricing is fair, and the communication is great. All my things arrived as they left and the movers did all the heavy lifting for us, which was much more ideal than unloading and loading a POD/U-Haul box on the busy streets of NY, up three flights of stairs ourselves (not to mention PODS was much more expensive).

I used cross country movers from LA to NJ and they were very helpful and affordable. Jake was very helpful... read more and patient answering all my questions and set up my move. I would recommend the free in home estimate as I under estimated how many boxes I would need so would have been good to have them do it for me as opposed to filling out the online form. Both the movers who picked up and dropped off were very careful with my items and made it very seamless for me. 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. My only issue is that they outsourced the car shipping company which ended up being fine, but would have been nice to know that ahead of time so there werent any surprises the day of the pick up. I would highly recommend them to anyone looking for a cross country moving company. read lessCasey B.San Francisco11/30/2016

Very happy with the service received by these gentlemen, we were becoming very frustrated when the move was not going... read more our way and we began to lose hope that we would actually be able to meet our deadline. We had a specific day on which we needed to be moved into our new apartment and it increasingly seemed less likely that we were going to make it. With only two and a half weeks left we gave these movers a call and literally sat back and watched them work their magic!Within the first two days the were able to organize everything into boxes and cleared out the basement which was the messiest part of the house. The rest of the time they had structured boxes and crates full of clothing and appliances on top of each other in the trucks so as to make the most out of the limited space they had in each truck and also to ensure all the things were fixed and would not fly everywhere on the road.The final day of the move was the hardest for us as our house was just about empty, like the first day we ever walked in and it was like saying goodbye to our home for the last few years. We had so many memories in this house and the only thing we had that maintained their sentimental values were our belongings that were being transported. As you can see some of the things in the move were very valuable to us, and it takes a special company to allow you to trust them in handling of those belongings. read lessMasta P.San Francisco6/22/2016

After finally arriving at our new house, we all got right to work and started unpacking and unloaded my things from the truck, they did it all in record time and made extra sure to keep my valuables all safe and in piece!

I can't recommend this company enough for a long distance move. We moved cross country from Boston to San Francisco,... read more and the move was painless and stress free. We worked with Michael Riley, who was a pleasure to communicate with as the coordinator of the move. Mike made sure we got competitive and reasonable pricing, streamlined service, and even went above and beyond to work with us during the weekend to make sure we were taken care of. I can't stress enough how much this company is about customer service. If you get a chance, please ask for Mike, and he will take care of you. The communication was clear throughout, and the movers were friendly guys who worked until the job was done. The best part was the team kept us up to date on where our items were during transit.We moved two apartments from Boston and a car across the country, and everything was delivered on time, and in perfect condition (minus a few minor scratches on some items that were bound to happen with 120+ items). All the reviews that I read on yelp led me to Cross Country Movers, and I hope that this helps someone else out, too.

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.

Top Reasons For Choosing Us
Moving from San Francisco, CA to New York, NY with San Francisco Cross Country Movers
Are you thinking about moving from San Francisco? Many people that have had the opportunity to live in San Francisco and experience the feel of the city say that it is not easy to pack up and leave. Even the journalist Herb Caen once said that if he ever went to Heaven, he would look around and say " It ain't bad, but it ain't no San Francisco". With love for a city that runs so deep its no wonder he never wanted to leave. Many of the citizens share this admiration, saying that they can’t imagine a place similar to the Golden City, with its amazingly open and diverse culture, stunning golden sunsets, wide variety of festivals, views and unique atmosphere.
This massively popular city, reaching 864 thousand inhabitants in the past two years, has had quite a reputation over the last couple of decades. People have decided to move there for various reasons. A huge influx of the members of the hippie culture was reported during and long after the famous ‘Summer of Love’ (1967), and following the years of the war in Vietnam, when the many newcomers sought a place with liberal activism in the United States.
San Francisco is not short on nicknames, which gives you hints to the area and the overall feel of the city. Also known as ‘The City by the Bay’ or as ‘The Fog City’, many of its famous traits come from the climate and local geographical sites and qualities. The greater bay area flaunts comfortable climate, and cool, swelter-free summers, with numerous green patches in the city and with a constant gaze at the water. What is also visible from most locations throughout the area is the famous Golden Gate Bridge, an astounding feat of the architecture that covers the channel between the Pacific Ocean and The San Francisco Bay. It was described by one of the travel guides as ‘’possibly the most beautiful, certainly the most photographed, bridge in the world." Quite a rare sight that this city has, are its cable cars, that go up and down the steep hills whose tops are mostly obscured by the foggy gloom.
All these things make San Francisco a one of a kind city and it will be difficult to leave behind the life you have gotten used to, but that is the point of relocating. The fact is that you have decided to go after something new, gain some new experiences and to move forward. Moving to a new part of the country brings a change in your life, not just the scenery, but in your routines, expectations and views of the world. Whatever you reason for relocating is it is a good idea to go into it with an open mind and go into your move with no regrets.

Living in a big city such as San Francisco, you are already used to regular traffic jams. However, New York City’s traffic jams are on a whole new level.

San Francisco 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+!
