I love the e-card on Pinterest that says “Sometimes I write down tasks after I’ve done them, just to get the satisfaction of crossing them off my list.” I agree – there’s just something great about checking tasks off a list. I feel accomplished, efficient, and just happy to be getting things done. For a move out of state, you’ll need a good checklist to keep you on task to ensure a successful move.

What is the average cost of a moving truck?

March 27th, 2013 - 10:40 AM

Moving Truck Average Costs

The rates depend on what type of moving truck you need and how far you are moving, among other things. Think about it: You can’t compare someone who is moving across the street and using the moving truck for one day to someone moving across the country and driving the truck for a week. Besides your location and truck size, what else goes into your average truck rental costs? Let’s take a look.
