Tips on choosing a Cross Country Moving Company:

When your move is across the country, rather than just across town, it's important to be selective about the moving company you work with. We know that getting your belongings from origin to destination is about so much more than the miles traveled - it's about the care and consideration used along the way.

Ensure Accountability & Review Credentials: As a reputable cross-country moving provider, Allied is registered with the FMCSA (Federal Motor Carrier Safety Administration) for your peace of mind, building accountability and trust at every step of our service. We don't just pack your boxes into our trucks: we pack the dependability and loyalty our brand is known for right alongside them.

Demand a Clear Contract, Not Just an Estimate: Always work with a mover that readily answers questions and provides details. You should know about pricing- both upfront and potential - estimated loading and delivery times, services offered (or opted out of!), and how in-progress questions and concerns are handled. Your Allied customer care agent will be happy to explain and walk through your cross-country moving contract.

Work with Experience: Finding the best cross-country moving provider is a process that goes beyond flashy graphics and catchy taglines. You need a company that has the experience to keep your possessions safe, enabling you to concentrate on enjoying your new home and locale, rather than anxiously awaiting a late or damaged shipment of home contents. Allied has years of expertise ready and waiting to work for you!

From cherished personal items to the furniture, household goods, and everyday necessities you'll need to "put down roots" in your new home, we're happy to make sure all containers are transported safely, accounted for, and arrives right on time. We know that the idea of moving can be stressful, but we're here to make sure the reality of it doesn't need to be.

How to Prepare for a Cross Country Move

Ready to hit the road? Here are a few handy steps that will make unpacking after your long-distance move feel effortless, rather than a months-long chore.

  • Pare down beforehand. While it can feel tempting to simply pack everything up and go through it when you arrive, doing so will unnecessarily increase your moving costs. Set aside time prior to your move to donate furniture, give away unwanted belongings, and dispose of items you no longer need.  
  • Document and label. Take snapshots of the inside of each box before taping it up, number your boxes, and keep a list somewhere online - your email inbox, for example. That way, if you have trouble tracking down a spatula, or the power cord to your computer, it's as simple as running through your list and finding the right numbered box.
  • Switch it off, switch it over. When you arrive at your new home, make sure you open the door ready to start and enjoy your new life. Call your utility companies to make the switch prior to moving, forward your mail, and make sure your "automatic shipping address" is updated on websites like Amazon and food delivery apps to avoid boxes or pizza heading to the wrong home later on.
