Fort Worth cross country moving FAQs

The short answer is that the length of time depends upon a few factors with the distance of the move being a key element.

A cross country move is typically one that is at least four to five hundred miles in distance. One with this mileage, though, is much shorter than, say, a move from Portland, Maine to Los Angeles, California—which is more than 3,200 miles, more than six times the minimum requirement for a cross country move.

Other factors in the timeframe can include the size of your move, the weather while your household goods are being transported, and road construction (which we always do our best to work around). In general, a cross country move can take a few days to a couple of weeks. To get more information about your specific relocation, contact us online for a moving quote and to get answers to your questions about our Fort Worth cross country movers and your unique relocation.

First, give yourself enough time to pack your belongings. Depending upon the size of your house and number of possessions you have, it could take a few days or even a few weeks to go through everything to decide what to toss, what to sell or donate, and what to take with you. Giving yourself enough time for this process, though, will reduce the weight of your belongings and streamline your move. So, toss what no longer has value for you or anyone else. Then, hold a rummage sale, give friends and families what they want but you don’t, or donate to worthy charities.

It can make sense to then pack items you want to keep but don’t need now and won’t need before your move is complete. This can include off-season clothing; holiday decorations; extra dishes, pans, and silverware; books; and so forth. Start this process as early as possible so you won’t feel rushed and do a bit daily.

As the moving day gets closer, pack more of your clothing, kitchenware, extra sheets, extra towels, and other items you won’t need before arriving at your new home.

Here’s another way to look at the question. What should you pack last? This would be clothing, kitchen items, paperwork, medications, toiletries, cleaning supplies, and so forth that you use daily. Think of what each person in your family will need each day as well as any pets.

You’ll want to pack a box or suitcase of items that you will keep physically with you on moving day. This can include your personal devices and chargers; important documents; especially valuable items; medications; and personal hygiene items. You can also pack a box with paper plates, paper towels, toilet paper, plastic cutlery, cleaning supplies, and other items you’ll want immediately after arriving in your new home.

Here is helpful information about what items not to pack. To take this daunting task off your to-do list, Daryl Flood’s Fort Worth cross country movers provide expert full and partial packing and unpacking services.

Typically, it’s cheaper to move in the off-season; because cross country movers are more in demand in May through September, you can save money with moves scheduled in October through April. There can also be a spike around Christmas, so avoid the two-week period before the holiday. Plus, when you’re looking for the most cost-effective move, schedule yours on a weekday: Monday through Thursday.

Here are additional money-saving tips when cross country moving. Get an accurate estimate from a trustworthy relocation company. This means you won’t be surprised by hidden costs that you haven’t put in your budget.

Before you get your quote, declutter. It’s natural to have possessions accumulate over the years — something you’ll definitely notice when you think about packing! — and, when you get rid of what you can’t use anymore, the reduced weight of your belongings can lower your moving quote. Toss what no one wants, hold a yard sale, and donate items to charity.

You can give your unopened, non-perishable canned and boxed food to Move For Hunger if your mover partners with them (and Daryl Flood does!). We’ll pack your food and deliver it to a local food pantry—at no cost to you.

As another tip, if you’ll be doing your own packing, visit local stores to see if they’ll give you used boxes that would otherwise go into the trash or be recycled. Even if they charge you for them, it will be less than the cost of buying new ones.
