The catch is that you will pay more. However, the contract I had was flat rate with no add-ons allowed - the quote was the price no matter what. So when they came to load in a blizzard and the truck wouldn't fit on the street because of snowbanks, and they had to send 4 extra guys in 2 small box trucks to shuttle everything down the street to where they could load the big truck, I didn't pay a penny extra (but I did tip extravagantly). For me the extra degree of comfort and certainty was worth it.

From one company's site:
If you don't mind, could you provide the name of the company? We might move from NY to VA. Would be concerned with my mid century modern furniture.

That's is who I used. Unfortunately, it looks like they've stopped doing long-haul for a while due to the pandemic. They pay and treat their people well, and don't want them all over the country right now. Should be other companies still operating, though. Try these guys.

I don't like to "name names" in a public forum, but be aware that the salespeople might tell you one thing and the contract might say something very different.

The salesman "guaranteed" that our belongings would arrive on the exact date we requested, but the CONTRACT said that it could be up to three full weeks later -- and that is what happened. So if I were to make a long distance move again, I would ask for the contracts (not filled in but just to see what their contract actually says) upfront.

I was very happy with Mayflower moving my mom from nh to texas. They did estimate and packing. Then sent me a check for 800. Because weight was a little less than estimated (we threw out a bedroom set, mattresses, and some stuff after they did estimate.)
Everything arrived on time (about 4 days), and not broken.

OMG, we just moved from Westchester, NY to Virginia last week! We used Clancy Brothers Movers. They were great! Nice people!

I've used Three Men & A Truck a couple times and have been happy with them. For us, it was back and forth from the midwest to the west coast, but they have offices and operate all over the U.S. from what I understand. They were cheaper than most of the other movers we contacted and I'd certainly use them again. No issues and they were good about communicating, both of which are somewhat rare in the moving industry from what I understand. Not sure if your son's moved yet, but they might be worth a ring if he's still exploring his options.

If someone is moving from Phoenix or the valley area AZ to any state in the United States can use a very reliable long-distance or a local moving company called All Together Moving and Storage.

I have used this company before so I highly recommend their services for being professional, on time, and affordable.

I'm wondering if anyone here has had any experience with Cross Country Movers? Got a quote from them and it all seems good, but my instincts are telling me it's too good and they claim the items packed into the truck aren't removed until they reach the moving to location. https://www.crosscountrymovers.info/
If anyone has had any experience with them, I'd love to hear it.
