Ask The Consumerists: Know A Good Bank?

A request for aid from one of your fellow readers, Laura:

    As I am relocating in three weeks, I need to switch to a bank that is on the west coast. Having read all the horror stories here, I have a question – is there any good, reliable, nationwide bank left? Or am I better to take the few wads of cash I have cross country with me and deposit them in my friend’s mattress, where I will be temporarily crashing?

    Help a lady out!
