Old Dominion has recently added a home moving self pack option that is less expensive than ABF.

We are contemplating a move from Tn. to Fla. in the next 6 months and between the loss we'll probably take on the sale of the house and the cost of moving probably going through the roof due to rising gas prices our dream is looking very much in doubt.

I just asked for a quote to move a relocube studio sized from DC to San Fran on the ABF website and the price was $4300.

sorry to say that the cheapest way IS to sell everything and buy new when you get there. The price of gas has all transportation costs off the charts!

I had good luck with shipping things via UPS. They got here before I did. Way cheap too. They will pick stuff up at your home. My cost, to move personal items, basically everything that fit in a box, was $800. From FL to MT.

I have considered all options and the cheapest by far is to have a trailer hitch mounted on my car and towing what few belongings I am keeping (after the yard sale) in a 5x8 U-haul trailer. There are some draw backs though. First, I wont get as good gas mileage towing a trailer. Additionally, towing puts a huge strain on the transmission and brakes of the car. Anybody know any easy fixes for these issues?
If I cant find a solution, renting a Penske 12 foot truck seems the most economical except gas prices will kill me at 12 MPG in a truck. I am traveling from Southern Texas to New York

I'm in the same dilemma h two four cylinder cars (2005 Camry and 2010honda crv). I don't want to destroy either of them like I did with a prior 4 cylinder Rav4 that towed a 16' pontoon boat several times.

But driving a truck is not an option for us.

Ideas? Suggestions? We are moving boxes - no furniture.
