Pro Tip for lower moving costs

The single most important piece of advice we can give you to keep costs down is to make a physical, tangible, excel spreadsheet inventory of all your goods. Sit down at the table and think long and hard about what you don’t need to bring, or can transport yourself. Eliminating as much weight as you can help in lowering the cost of your move. Whether you are moving across town, upstate, or cross country, this will help you save big time. Some things you may be able to load up in the 4×4 and take yourself. If you drive a 4 door sedan, you still can fit a significant amount of personal clothing, kitchen supplies, and household appliances in there.
