Hi Everyone, new to the City-Data Forums but have been a visitor for quite sometime and have gained much needed knowledge recently

Ok, so here I am, moving from the Dallas/Fort Worth area to the Fargo area in several months (maybe 6 or so) and am collecting as much as I can to make this transition as easy as possible. So what I would like to ask others here is simply this :

Has anyone moved a similar distance and how did you go about moving your belongings the most affordable way? I will not be bringing furniture, only small to medium size boxes (30 or so), music equipment, our cat (who will be riding with us), and a few other items, including computer related items. U Haul is OUT, I drive an Explorer and they will not rent to me and I have to drive so they will not help. I have looked into U Pack and Pack Rats but they seem pricey. Anyway, suggestions are greatly appreciated and thank you in advance.

Wes

Have you thought about renting a U-Haul, Penske, or somebody else, a truck and towing/hauling your Explorer on a trailer or dolly?

I did that back in 1986. It cost around $900 back then for a move of approximately 1200 miles, but I rented the largest truck they had.

Thanks for the input, I guess I could consider towing the Explorer if I have to but my preference would be to drive it and use a small trailer for my stuff, just who to use and who would be the cheapest. Anyway, thanks
