I am moving from chicago to the orlando area around the 15th of June. My dates are somewhat flexible. I am moving a large 1 bedroom apt to a house in the suburbs of orlando. I have looked at renting a truck and that is going to cost over $1600 when all is said and done. I also have a small car that I am not sure I want to drive down but the cheapest price I have found online to transport it is $600. There has got to be a cheaper way! If anyone has any suggestions that would be great.

Drive the car and pack all your important stuff in it. Sell all the rest. After gas, you will probably end up with around $2500 to buy new used stuff. You should be able to replace most of what you got rid of with stuff that will go in your new house.

Sounds extreme but it just depends on how much you want to pay to move used furniture!

Yellowsnow, couldn't have said it better myself! Used furniture is cheap; why pay to move something you don't absolutely have to keep...

Better question is why are you moving to Orlando from Chicago? I lived in both cities and feel Chicago is one of the best cities you can live in. I know there's a difference between cost of living and the weather but you'll be sacrificing a lot when you move to Orlando. Honestly, it's like entering a new world as it's a completely different lifestyle. Why are you moving?
