It's more expensive, but the full service movers were worth every penny when moving long distance. We used United Van Lines.

re: Moving Across Country (Car & Furniture)


Im moving from BR to SoCal.

I have decent size furniture but not many items.

I have located a storage unit in SoCal.

I wanted to have movers take my furniture, boxes and car....drop the furniture and boxes of in storage unit. I would meet them at storage unit and pick up car from there. Is that even possible?

Or does someone have a better idea that could be more efficient?

rent a penske truck and tow you car behind? that the cheapest way you can go. or ship it.

i just looked and the truck rental would be 900 one way unlimited mileage. for a 12 foot truck or 16ft econmy van. you cant beat that. then you could ship your car for 800. problem solved

U Haul has an option where you can hire movers to meet you where ever and load or unload the truck. Very cheap, <$100 for the movers, you just have to rent and drive the truck/trailer.

I took the loss and sold whatever furniture i could. Gave away a 2 year old sofa, etc......packed everything i wanted in my car before shipping it and hopped on a plane.

If you have an SUV, just rent a uhaul trailer (covered, not flatbed). Whatever you can't fit, sell on craigslist, and buy replacement of of craigslist on your arrival.

Pods might be a feasible option for you.
