About San Francisco, California
San Francisco is the cultural, commercial, and financial center of Northern California. The city of San Francisco is situated at the tip of a peninsula surrounded by the Pacific Ocean on the west, the San Francisco Bay on the east, and the Golden Gate, a narrow marine passageway between San Francisco and Marin County to the north. It's originally name was Yerba Buena, name given in 1835 and taken from the wild mint growing on the sand dunes. But, in 1846, San Francisco got its name, after having been claimed by Captain John Montgomery. The California Gold Rush brought many people to San Francisco's region in the middle of 1800's. In this years it was wild city and fairly lawless due to the gold rush. But, San Francisco became a financial capital when stock market crashed in 1929, because none of San Francisco's banks failed. Today the city is famous for its concentration of cutting-edge high-technology firms, which have drawn even more new residents to this populous region. San Francisco has a warm summer Mediterranean climate characteristic of California's coast, with moist mild winters and dry summers.

Due to its old age our elevator in the building was relatively rusty and gave out from time to time, just stopped working. Unfortunately, it also happened the day men were scheduled to come to our house to begin packing and loading our furniture onto trucks. Obviously that turned out to be a feat considering the easiest way of getting and down just stopped functioning.Madison W.
The men were not deterred and said it was no problem that they could run the things up and down the stairs. I was honestly humbled but completely argued against it as they would have to run up and down two stories worth of steps. The whole building had seven floors but luckily ours was one of the closest to the parking garage. Thankfully they were only about forty five minutes into the move when a repairman arrived and fixed the elevator, the rest of the move became a breeze. Everything turned out great, we are just now unboxing everything and we are so grateful to Cross Country for all they have done for my family and our move.
It was so refreshing to be assigned a group of movers who were not only their to earn a paycheck but rather wanted to actually help to ease our transition into the new place. These movers were genuine and caring people and these characteristics reflected in the workmanship, very professional and disciplined group of guys that cooperate well even when they are on opposite sides of the room. They would sweep into the room stuffing all of the appliances into crates and all of the clothing into the boxes that we had designated for them to use. They helped us label and pack everything and then began the loading process onto the trucks with dollies and the liftgate.
Within a few hours we had decimated at least a quarter of the move and this was so satisfying considering that we had another two to three days before we needed to have everything loaded and shipped out. Our move in date was schedule for the Wednesday of the following week and this would give us sufficient time to take our flight, arrive at the new home and unpack everything respectively.
My biggest concern throughout the entire move was precisely how we would be able to get all of our belongings from one place to another without damage. And without a sign of distrust they were able to provide me reassurance that our stuff was in good hands and these movers truly knew what they were doing. Thank you guys so very much for all the help you guys have provided to us and the assistance you gave to make our family's stress about a new city and a new place just a little easier! Totally recommend them. read lessSan Francisco, CA7/16/2016

Long Distance Movers was by far the best company I dealt with. Their response was immediate, their attention to detail was unparalleled, and their prices were also the lowest. Plus there were some last minute changes in my reservation and they were super flexible.Amada B.

I got the car at a discounted rate from a private seller and used Long Distance Movers to ship it back down since my busy work schedule didn't allow me to drive up there. I gave them a ring and was quickly quoted a price. I told them it was urgent for the car to get back to me ASAP as I was using my mom's car to get to work and back. I was assured the car would arrive the next day after my call and I woke up anxiously waiting to get it. I got a call 30 min before they arrived and once they got to my house, the unloading process went by pretty quickly. The great shipping price along with the discounted price on the car made me one happy person Thanks Long Distance Movers! read lessAlex A.San Francisco, CA1/30/2016

On the date of pickup my agent called me as well as the driver ensuring everything was in line and on time. The driver showed up at the dealership and did a walk through of my new car and then loaded it up. On a side note, It's pretty awesome watching how these guys load the trailers up with vehicles using the hydraulics to move each car around.
Delivery was all smiles, same driver, no damages, and it only took 2 days to arrive. Thanks LD MOVERS, You Rock! read lessSan Francisco, CA8/29/2016

The good reviews about this company were all accurate! They were professional, efficient and friendly! They arrived promptly on time, which is very professional. They had my belongings put in the box really organized and clean.Abram A.
Especially, with my painting collection they were really careful with them regardless the size of it. I could see that they really took care of my collection which is very respectful of them.
They were communicating with me, asking me questions about how I want a certain thing to be wrapped. Overall very friendly service and would definitely call this place again if I move. Also, they were very careful putting my belongings in their vehicle. The movers made sure that they stayed in place especially, my collection. I definitely recommend this place to whoever needs a great moving services.
The highlight of the whole move was when they began to take out the television sets and stand, they knew exactly what they were doing with the wiring. They had this contraption that made sure none of the wiring got tangled or out of place from how it already was, and the day all of our things arrived at the new house the movers even helped us plug everything into the walls. I have a fear of electricity and have never been good with wall sockets so I super happy that the guys were kind enough to do that.
Within hours after we had moved in we had almost unpacked everything that was supposed to be shipped, this was thanks to the super neat and organized packing and labeling done by the movers at our old place. Would never even consider using any other company for a move after using these guys. If you are in the local area and are in need of professional help to make a move, give these guys a call I am sure you will not regret it. read lessSan Francisco, CA7/13/2016

I am very particular of what companies I hire when it comes to my personal belonging and life at that. I hear many stories and can relate to bad experiences I've come across in the past. In order to secure my decision I choose requested individual quotes from all 3 well rated companies i had selected. After reviewing and comparing estimates,Vee B.
Long Distance Movers stood out and impressed me the most, their structure was well formatted and the way they presented me with recent references I could refer to created that comfort I needed. You should never be too comfortable without looking into company. I have many valuable and delicate things I had them handle and they were able to honor their agreement and ensure everything would be delivered the way it came. To sum up my wonderful experience I want to say with no doubt I would recommend and continue using this company.
They are worth every dollar and can assure to do the best job whether it be a little close move to a large long distance move. They have the knowledge, experience, and crew it takes to take it on. I gave them five stars but I would without hesitation double that rating to five stars if I had the ability to, they did everything right from the very moment they walked in.
Communication is a key aspect of any professional move, not only with the movers among each other but also with the receptionist and estimator being able to constantly update and communicate with the customers. They called us the day we were supposed to perform our in home estimation just to make sure we were awake and it was still convenient for them to drive over. When we confirmed they were on their way and contacted us one more time five minutes prior to arrival just to make sure we were prepared. When they entered and began the move everything flowed so simply I was not surprised at all that they finished two days earlier than they had estimated. read lessSan Francisco, CA7/21/2016

What they offer is fast and SAFE service for your vehicle. Each of my cars that were brought over were handled with the utmost care. The reps I spoke to both went out of their way to ensure that my vehicles arrived in perfect order and left no stone unturned.
I'll be honest with you all, they were not the cheapest company. Their quote was always $100-$200 more than the next guy... however I found that small premium paid off huge. I got full access to the reps that outlined my deals. They made themselves available even when they were on their days off. It's nerve wracking moving cross country and having to trust an expensive asset such as a vehicle to people you do not know. However in the hands of this company I had the peace of mind knowing that they were treating my cars as if they were their own. The 3 times that I've used this company I've always gotten 5 star service. I'll pay the extra $100 knowing that my car will get to its destination on time and in one piece. read lessSan Francisco, CA2/27/2018

Whether the guys don't show up on time, things get "lost" along the way, the delivery doesn't happen on schedule, or the worst case scenario, they charge you extra during the drop off because of whatever they feel like charging you for, it had always been a nightmare to find a solid moving company.The H.
So with heavy skepticism, we tried this new company, and we finally got lucky.
-Estimate came back immediately
-Pick up was smooth and well executed
-Delivery was a little delayed due to weather but within reason
-Delivery execution was also very clean and well planned (Lots of confirmation phone calls about delivery time and location)
-Price was exactly the same as the estimate
I know it seems very "duh" , and maybe we've just been unlucky in the past, but IF we have to move again, we will be using these guys without a doubt.
Thanks guys! read lessSan Francisco, CA5/24/2018
