ADA Compliance & Web Accessibility Statement
Everyone deserves the chance to access quality cross-country moving solutions
As a business that is oriented toward helping people across the US find reliable and licensed interstate moving companies, Best Cross Country Movers is always looking for ways to make our solutions more accessible to everyone.

Test out our ADA Compliance plugin yourself
When visiting our website, people with disabilities have the option to adjust pages to their own needs – all with the help of the web accessibility plugin that we installed. Accessing the plugin is a simple matter of clicking on the icon in the upper right corner of the web page. The plugin offers a menu with a variety of options for contrast and font modifications.
Shortcuts for navigating the plugin more easily:
- Alt+Z – open accessibility sidebar
- Alt+X – close accessibility sidebar
Our company remains focused on doing more in terms of web accessibility
While Best Cross Country Movers strives to adhere to the accepted guidelines and standards for accessibility and usability, it is not always possible to do so in all areas of our online experience. That being said, there are accessibility elements that our team is still working on:
- Alt text for images: Users might still come across images that lack proper alt text, but our team is currently working on resolving this.
- Contrast: Certain website pages might be lacking terms of contrast, but we are looking into this matter. However, the plugin we installed offers site visitors the ability to modify contrast settings on each page.
- Font size: There might be pages with smaller font sizes or different styles, which is also something that the plugin we installed can help fix.
- Link visibility: Certain links might be difficult to spot, but can be identified with ease through the use of underline and highlight link options in the plugin.
