I can't answer your question about Cross Country but I am going with International Van Lines. The Rep told me my box stored in the truck would go to my new place without ever being removed or stored off the truck. Of course, this assumes the truck doesn't break down. Rare, but a possibility.

Basically, my stuff will go in a box that takes up 1/4 of a semi trailer. Whether I am lost off or not depends on who is going further than me. So if somebody is going further, I could be the 2nd or 3rd off, but who knows when that will be if the first person move is closer than me but is well off my route. He still goes first, but it does not mean he is directly in my line of route, so days are needed to go off my route and get back in

All of this is my long-winded way of saying, I was also told that my goods packed in the IVL truck won't be removed until reaching my new place.

Thanks for the information. I made a call to International Van Lines and will be getting quote. I really like what I see about them so far.

You are welcome. Hopefully, where you are they will also use their own movers and not a local affiliate.

Three Men and a Truck is a good state to state moving company that I've used in the past. Personally, I try to stick to the major names if I'm moving long distance - becomes kind of a crap shoot what you'll get past that in my opinion. Local moves are different because you're likely dealing with a company in your area that you're familiar with, but like an established name when it's long distance or state to state. You can always call around and get an estimate though - they all do that for free so it's easy to compare prices.

Consider a do-it-yourself approach. One way is to use a company like Upack or PODS, then hire the moving labor yourself at both ends. I am looking at Moving Staffers for that, but there are others.
