One-Way Moves: Getting the Lowest Price

June 20th, 2012 - 3:57 PM

I think the term “one-way moving” is funny. I mean, one-way flights might be rare, but I imagine that most moves are one-way.  I mean honestly, who packs up their whole house to move it across the country then turns right around and moves it back? Is there round-trip moving in comparison? (If that has happened to you, my heart goes out to you).
