Rental Truck Fuel Costs

April 10th, 2012 - 3:50 PM

The week after college graduation I moved four hours away from home, into my first apartment. We did all the moving ourselves, including my dad driving all my mismatched, second-hand furniture in a rental truck. Halfway to my new apartment, dad called us. “I need to stop for gas.” What? We had only driven two hours! So we stopped to fill up the rental truck. That pump kept going and going and going and the gas bill was WAY more than we had anticipated. Not to mention that we had to fill it up again before we returned it (so it would be full at drop-off). Another blow to the wallet.

What Moves You? Summing Up the Road Trip of a Lifetime

In her last post, Miki explains why she trusts U-Pack when it comes to moving long distance. Capping off the cross-country road trip she and her grandmother took while U-Pack handled their big move, Miki now has a published blog series to document the unforgettable experience. Read on!

When I chose a moving company for my grandmother, I wanted the best. I mean, this would be the company that would move her 86 years of belongings; her treasures. I don’t think I can ever fully articulate how thankful I am for the services of ABF U-Pack Moving—not just for my own move two years ago, but especially for my grandmother’s.

Are you moving to a small town, perhaps to get away from big city life, or maybe a job or career change? Whatever the case, you’ll definitely want to do a little new-town-investigation before you move. Pre-move research will definitely help you get a feel for the city and what it has to offer, and you can do most of it online, from the comfort of your favorite chair!

Here are a few suggestions to help prepare you for your move to a small town:
