Quoting T-Swizzle+2:" We were going to do a DITY move but I don't think they're worth it anymore with the price of gas... I ... [snip!] ... hotels, food etc etc. Pass! lol they can move my smurf for me... and when they break it, which they will, they can pay me back!"
Ours will be about $1,200 with gas factored in. They will give an advance to cover renting the truck, moving materials, etc. And you get money up to 3 days for travel including money for food, lodging, and gas. I wish I could remember how much DH said, but I know we get extra for me and LO too. With Penske, they don't charge by the mile so we are only paying $353 and they give you 4 days to move on that price. There's a 10% discount for one way trips, and 10% discount for military. Then they have added insurance options to cover your property in the move too which is nice.
