But before you contact us for a quote, find out more about this fantastic location.
As the nation’s capital, Washington DC is one of the most visited US cities, so if you are planning to relocate here, be prepared to see many tourists. It is located on the Potomac River and borders Virginia and Maryland. Washington is also a political center. All three branches of Federal government are locked here – Congress, the president, and the Supreme Court. It is home to more than 177 embassies and numerous international organizations, lobby groups, non-government organizations, and more. Some of those institutions are the International Monetary Fund, National Geographic Society, World Bank Group, and the American Red Cross. It has numerous famous historical monuments and memorials like Lincoln Memorial, The Thomas Jefferson Memorial, Martin Luther King Memorial, Constitution Gardens, well known Washington Monument, and for many tourists favors Capitol Hill.
Beyond the world-class attractions, Washington DC has a fantastic character. It is an international, cosmopolitan city with small-town neighborhoods’ charms. There are plenty of job opportunities here, especially for young professionals. Climate is very humid and it can get pretty hot in the summer, with a lot of mosquitos. Winters are mild and without many heavy snowfalls. The famous fun fact of the nation’s capital is that it has a large number of tunnels that extend below the city and are for the members of governments to use. These tunnels were never publicly shown.
When moving to a new city, it is essential to know what kinds of neighborhoods are there. Which areas are family-friendly? Which one has the best housing option, and schools? No matter which neighborhood you choose to settle, our movers in DC will give you the best service there is. In this city, you can live in a suburb-like family-friendly residential area and yet to be in the proximity of downtown. If you are moving with a family, then Woodley Park, Wesley Heights Foxhall Crescents, North Cleveland Park, and American University Park are places where you should look for a home. Suppose you wish to be closer to a more authentic Washington vibe, striking architecture, history, vibrant nightlife, original bars, and restaurant? In that case, neighborhoods in and around the city center are more for you. But be aware expenditures are higher here. The most famous and oldest area (older than the city itself) is Georgetown, where many of Washington’s elite live. Georgetown University is located here, and it is also considered one of the safer areas. If you are keen on a classic Victorian house, the Bloomingdale neighborhood is the place to look for one. Downtown, where all the significant employment and cultural activities happen, is also the most expensive – three-bedroom apartments are around $4.400 per month. In comparison, for the same apartment in suburbia, you will pay approximately $3.300.
Washington DC is truly a city that can offer fun for everyone’s liking. If you are more of a nature lover, then you should walk along the Potomac River in spring when the magic of blossoming cherry is at its peak. For more serious outdoor activities, there is Rock Creek Park, where even horseback riding is possible. For food lovers and shopaholics, the Eastern and Union markets sell goods and food from around the world. In the Eden center, you can enjoy Vietnamese and other Asian cuisines. Also, you should visit the United States National Arboretum and National Zoological Park.
As you can see, the nation’s capital has a lot to offer, so your plan to move here will pay off. Our moving company Washington DC will make sure that your relocation goes as smoothly as possible. If you require professional and affordable moving assistance, contact your local CCMC agent and ask for a quote. The price will depend on the type of services you need.

In CCMC, there is no hidden expenditure. This way, we list all the additional services that we provide and inform our customers before we make any arrangements:
If you feel overwhelmed by moving to another state and stressed out because of all the packing you need to do, then investment in our packing services is the right choice for you. Our movers in Washington DC will pack your belongings very efficiently and professionally. After all, you want your stuff to be well protected and safely transported. Our movers will bring all the boxes and packing supplies you need. This is an integral part of the packing process. Our experienced movers know how to pack specific objects in the best way possible with a high-quality supply material, crucial for the safe relocation of your belongings.
Cross Country Moving Company has two types of packing service – full packing and partial packing. The only difference is in price, and the amount of time you will have to invest in this process. If you choose a full packing service, our team of movers will pack everything on your inventory list, we will do all the folding, protecting, and labeling. In partial packing, we will only pack boxes that you specify us to do. When it comes to unpacking our movers will unload stuff from the truck, assemble any furniture they disassembled, and put all the boxes in their designated rooms. Keep in mind that if our movers pack more than fifteen boxes, we count that as a full pack.
Washington has an excellent metro system and public transportation so getting from one place to another is not that difficult. Driving around the federal city with your car is not a “New York-style nightmare,” so actually, many Americans who moved here decided to ship their vehicle. So if you wish to have a car shipped to Washington DC by our company, you will have your car safely transported and delivered in time. For a reasonable price, you can choose two types of auto shipping service. The cost of car shipping depends on the size of a car, weight, and distance.
CCMC offers to our customers an open trailer and enclosed trailer, which is a more expensive option. The advantage of an open trailer is that you can ship more vehicles simultaneously. This way, this option is cheaper and for everyone’s pocket. Also, believe it or not, an open trailer is faster on the road, so your auto will be there sooner. The enclosed trailer is a little bit more expensive, and it is usually used for expensive and luxurious car relocation. Insurance coverage is higher for this service, and your car will be fully protected from all kinds of unpredictable accidents on the road.
In delivery matters, you can also choose two options. We have a door-to-door delivery option where we deliver your car in front of your new home. If the trailer can’t access the address, your car will be delivered to the nearest parking lot. This mostly depends on the street your new home is on. The other, cheaper option is terminal to terminal delivery. In this case you will have to come to pick your four-wheeler at the closest terminal. Don’t worry, we have terminals in every major city, so please contact our agent for more details.
Relocating from one country to another can be challenging and difficult. You don’t know where to start your relocating process?
