Can't seem to get a handle on what a full-service mover might charge for a 3-bedroom home (minimal probably closer to 2-bedroom), for one month storage between pickup and unload. Let's say 5,000 lbs. We are trying to eliminate lots of stuff prior to packing!

This would be outside the cost of packing and actually doing the move. Just to store . . . any general ideas?

We will be getting quotes in a few months but a little early to start that yet.

Massive amounts of cash. My husband and I had our last long distance, full service move in 1996. His new employer gave us $8,000, and we still had some out of pocket. This was after throwing things away, a yard sale, and donations. My husband rented a small truck and moved heavy things like books, albums (a lot of them) and shop tools.
