How Long Does It Take To Move Across The Country?

A lot goes into a cross country move. Planning for your move is one thing, but execution is another. Typically, the process of getting your belongings from point A to point B once packed can take anywhere between 2 days to several weeks, depending on the specific circumstances surrounding the move, including the distance of your cross country move. This includes driver lodging and breaks for gas and food. When factoring in end-to-end services such as packing and unpacking, the entire cross country moving process can take anywhere from 2-3 weeks. While this may be a stressful period, you’ll be thankful for professional assistance once your cross country move is completed.
