It's a flat fee for the trip.

By the mile came out cheaper actually!
by almost $1,000 but this company doesn't lease
long distance by the mile

have you read all of the articles about scams and ruining everything.
I would never trust a moving company cross country, sorry.
if ya want something done right, ya might as well do it yourself. ;-)

actually with a 26 foot truck that shouldn't be a problem

we moved from MN east with TWO 26 foot trucks, one with a BOAT in it and the other towed a car!

WE had 3 dogs and 4 cats and it was a real zoo, I'll tell ya.  It took us 10 days to drive what most people can drive in 5.

>Load the other one with fragiles, valuables, and enough stuff so that you can take that cross country tour. Meet up with the truck when it gets to your destination.

I was thinking of towing one car on a car carrier (not tow dolly) so that in case one car breaks down we can drive the other and just tow the other until we get to Flag.

We'll probably be living in a dirt-floor tent the way we are going !!!
