I was recently reading in a forum where customers were discussing this very subject. One person who was moving from Chicago to Tampa mentioned that prices were so high that she was planning to sell everything and buy when she got there. Maybe a little drastic, but certainly understandable when you consider how much moving long distance can cost.

As you know, when you’re moving to Hawaii, your moving options are limited (there’s no driving a rental truck across the ocean). That leaves you with the “full-service” option and the “you pack, we drive” option. When you begin getting moving quotes, you’ll probably notice that full-service moving is the most expensive way to move to Hawaii. If affordability is your goal, and you would like to find a service that offers flexible moving options, excellent customer service and fast transit times, I think you’ll find that U-Pack® is the ideal solution.

And, of course, the primary question asked is “How much does it cost to hire a moving company?”

Crossing state lines doesn’t seem like such a big deal, right? I mean, there are spots where you can stand in two states at once, like in Texarkana, Arkansas and Texarkana, Texas; or in the Four Corners area of Utah, Arizona, New Mexico, and Colorado. But taking your household goods across state lines is a big deal—at least when it comes to moving.

We’ve all been there; a desire to do something different and creative but the ideas just don’t come. For me, this is especially true when it comes to home design. Whether you’re building a new home, moving to a new home, renovating an older home, or just trying to make your current home more “you,” sometimes your mind’s canvas simply goes blank. It happens to professionals and amateurs alike. So, where do you go to get your artistic juices flowing once again? We did a little research and found some great websites where you’ll find home design inspiration.

When you’re planning a move to a new city, there are so many things you have to remember; changing your address is at the top of the list.

I think this is the most interesting infographic I’ve seen in a while—it’s titled World Population Growth—and is a great picture of how many people live in the world and what that population is likely to look like in 40 years.
I have to admit that being from a smallish city in the United States, it’s easy to live in a bubble and not think about things in terms of the entire world. Even more difficult to imagine is what it will look like in 40 years when I’m at retirement age (hopefully) and my future children are at the phase of life that I’m in now.
