I am moving from Dallas TX to Anaheim CA. Any suggestions on how to do that inexpensively?
Looking into Pod's, door to door or even a Uhaul.
I am open to any suggestions. Thanks for your help.

Upack is cheaper than pods, if you can fit your stuff into a smaller trailer you will get there under 2k.

U-Haul trailer is probably cheapest option. If you don't already have a trailer hitch they will make you buy one, but they will install it, and for that far a move, would be worth it, IMO.

Make sure you consider your surroundings. Whether pods, u-pack trailer or rental moving truck, you need to find out whether those can be left parked overnight or not. You will have the most control with a U-Haul type of rental truck, but then you have to be willing to drive it (or ask a friend to join you who might be willing to drive it).

Check Penske truck rental. Usually cheaper than UHaul. Also, since more people are moving out of CA, you might get a break on taking a truck into CA, saves them the cost of shipping one themselves.

maybe getting rid of everything you can easily replace and just take what fits in a van...... they have Craigslist in Anaheim too for new stuff!
