Idk if it's the right place to put the topic, but I'm wondering if you can recommend any decent moving company (in the US)?

Pack Rat. They drop off the size of container you need. Pick it up when you want. Stored and then moved our stuff from Calif to Florida. Dropped it off and we took our time unloading it. Special lifts raise the containers gently. Great company.

When we moved from the void that sits south of Oregon and north of Mexico, my research led me to UPack operated by ABF freight for our 2019 move.

They drop a 26' commercial trailer at your house and you load it (3 business days free--more if you include a weekend and holidays). They pickup the trailer, transport it and deliver the trailer to you new digs.

In my world, it was a better deal to hire local helpers, load/unload the trailer and pay ABF for the transport--than hire a full service moving company (nothing less than $6k were my quotes).

I paid UPack $3400 for my 1000 mile move and paid each worker a Benjamin for their hard work (I orchestrated the loading--made sure we had walls of boxes, floor to ceiling) and paid workers $400 in Cali and $500 in Oregon (5 guys).

BTW, the best deal for moving boxes is Uhaul; the boxes are are heavy duty, right sized and about half the cost than Home Depot.

Good luck!

The problem with moving companies, besides costs, is delivery dates. They pick up and drop off along their routes, changing their schedule as they go. Getting a definitive delivery date is next to impossible. I moved one of my daughters twice by myself because of this. Even getting a definitive date from Fayetteville North Carolina to Nashville was impossible. I was told up to 30 days for that short (560 miles) route, at a cost of over $1,500 (back in 2010). They same thing happened when she moved from Nashville to San Diego (at almost 3 times the cost).

I'd rather deal with a used car salesman than a moving company. After many pictures, discussions about *exactly* what was to be moved to the nearest cubic foot, the actual movers showed up and claimed I had more stuff than they were told and wanted to up the price substantially.

I offered them $100 to just shut up about it and get busy, but they refused. So I told them to leave.

Lol.. I guess Coast to Coast means moving. First post is about a moving company on an RV website?

Stick to the major moving companies. Another friend just got ripped off from one of the lowballers. Once they have your goods they suddenly come up with more charges and when they have your goods, there's nothing you can do but pay them.

I found that United Van Lines "Snapmove" option was the least expensive choice if you wanted packing and unpacking included. They did a very good job for me.
