Do gas prices impact moving costs?

February 13th, 2014 - 11:06 AM

What’s the big deal with gas prices, anyway?

We get it; you’re used to stopping at the gas station week after week to fill up your personal vehicle, and the cost isn’t that bad (even at $3-3.50/gallon) In fact, the average fuel economy for new cars is 29.4 MPG – nope, not bad at all. So, when your friend tells you that gas prices could significantly impact the cost of your upcoming long-distance move, you might feel a little skeptical (and that’s completely understandable). But…what if they’re right?

Just like driving an unfamiliar road, moving comes with some unknowns that can end up costing you more than you anticipated. While there aren’t literal warning signs along the way, there are definitely some signals you can watch for to help avoid the unforeseen.  Here are a few things to watch for:

Can I afford professional movers?

The idea of hiring professional movers to do all of the work does sound really appealing, doesn’t it? That is, until you take a look at the price tag. It can get really expensive.

Moving Prices that Won’t Break the Bank

And while you’re comparing moving prices, you’ll also want to check out what that price includes, so you know exactly what you’re getting for your money.
