Cross Country Moving Group is the worst experience I have ever had with a moving company. We moved across the country for a new job. Before the first deposit was given the customer service was good.

They promised to be a good company to use for the move and pack our fragile items for use (which we paid for and was in the contract). After they had our deposit, I could not get a hold of them more often than not, and when I did they were exceptionally rude.

They did not pack the fragile items (TV's) in TV boxes, they through blankets over them and called it good. This cavalier attitude toward their job continued throughout the packing process.

In the end, the items we packed ourselves arrived ok, but all the items the "professionals" packed were broken. We were remodeling a house and needed our household items stored for a short time (a few weeks).

We communicated this clearly to the moving company and they agreed to store our items for a fee. We agreed to pay the fee for the delivery delay. The next we heard from them was that our items were loaded and in route.

They placed them on the truck before we requested and we were not ready for them. I called and got a "it's your problem now" response from the owner of the company!

We were right in the middle of a remodel when the household goods arrived after we had paid to have them stored for a few weeks! When the household items arrived, every box was upside down. The labeled fragile boxes were under the boxes labeled heavy.

All the TV's were broken and one just missing, the drill press was broke, as was the entertainment center, refrigerator, upright freezer, both front loaders (washer and dryer), book shelves, one of the file cabinets (both were also upside down), our hand-made headboard, etc.

The shipping boxes were split open and plastic tubs were crushed (Christmas ornaments). I don't mean one or two either, every box and tub was either split open or crushed as it came out of the truck at delivery.

We figured the claims department would handle the broken items and pay for them as a good honest business (that wants good customer relations) should. Repair, replace, or fairly compensate for the damaged items.

We received the claim back today August 14, 2021. Our move was February 10, 2021. Six long months later during which time we had to keep all the broken items and material for the claims department adjuster to look at and verify per contract.

They never came to look at the stuff in 6 months, neither did they call to ask questions or more information. We followed the claims instructions to the letter to get just compensation.

Most of the broken items were denied by their claims department even though all the items were listed as damaged on the manifest except for the items we found damaged in the crushed boxes opened later.

Of all the damage done to our household items, they agreed to pay $405 to compensate us for their negligence and our hassle and heartache for the past 6 months.

They considered this fair and adequate compensation for 3 broken large flat-screen TV's, one missing (stolen?) large flat-screen TV, a custom made king sized headboard, a front loader washing machine, a front loader clothes dryer, a destroyed entertainment center, a broken drill press (shows how hard they actually were on our stuff), a broken kitchen refrigerator, a broken upright freezer, a broken bookshelf, a broken file cabinet, several broken antique frames and ornaments, and many other smaller household items.

If you chose to use this company after reading this review and ones that are like it, that is your choice. Be warned, you are inviting a group of hyperactive guys with hammers and bad tempers into your home.

This is how we feel, that we were robbed and vandalized then told to be grateful for it and pay many thousands of dollars for the experience. We will never be using this company again.

Is it possible to give negative stars? Honestly, I have never had a worse, more insulting experience than with Cross Country moving.

I was so hopeful in talking with Chad **, the front person, who told me in writing that his price was a worst case scenario and that there would be no surprises.

Well, my move went from $2303 to over $4000 at pickup, including a $700 booking fee, whatever that is, plus $100 apiece for television boxes because my padded cases weren’t acceptable.

Even though my furniture was not that valuable, the movers said they had to shrink wrap all of it for an additional $200. Then, when I asked how long it would take for the furniture to get to Phoenix from San Diego, only about 400 miles, they said 2-4 days. That was Tuesday.

It is now Saturday and we have just been told it won’t arrive until Tuesday—a whole week for a relatively short trip. I have tried numerous times to talk to Chad ** about the shortfalls, and he has not returned calls or emails.

I recognize that they contract with others, so some of the problems may come from that, but I have yet to see any evidence at all that they stand by their product or hold themselves responsible for the service provided.

Seriously, I have never in my long life gotten a worse hosing than from Cross Country Movers. I am truly STUNNED at how much of a nightmare this has been. BEWARE!!!!
