Hello all,

Does anybody move this far before before? Is it cheaper to rent truck or pay the mover? Any suggestion to simply minimal the cost?

Thanks.

It's easier on the pocketbook to rent a truck. It's easier on the mind to pay a mover. I personally recommend a mover. Good luck on your move!

With that distance and the need to pack carefully, I'd go with the mover. Do you have to get you car there, too?

I vote for mover. When we moved locally, our things didn't need to be taken apart (tables, shelves, desks, etc.)--they were just put on the truck for the 4 hour ride. When we moved from Fl to CA last year, the truck was packed to the gills and everything was taken apart and packed tight. Your belongings are on the truck a minimum of 7 days so it needs to be packed right. I'm not saying that your things are "safer" with a mover versus you yourself. But peace of mind and body -- it's just easier to spend the money. If saving money is the ultimate goal, then you probably need to do it yourself--moving is not cheap and our cross country move (including cars) was over $20K.
