Saving money for an out-of-state move
You save money before making big purchases like new furniture or vacation, so it makes sense to save up for a long-distance move as well. But since moving isn’t a common expense, how do you know how much to set back? You’ll need to add up the packing supplies, the costs for the moving company and things needed to get settled in. Take a look at what to expect and some ideas for saving before moving out.

Leaving the San Francisco Bay Area?
According to a report by real-estate brokerage firm Redfin, more people are moving out of the San Francisco area than anywhere else in the United States. This is linked to factors such as tax rates and housing costs, but the sheer amount of people leaving is actually making it more expensive for others to move. When demand is high, moving rates often increase.
If you’re making plans to leave San Francisco, San Jose, Fremont or another Bay Area city, you might want to do a little shopping around. By getting multiple quotes, you’re more likely to find the best price. Compare rates to find out which option is cheapest.

What is a one-way move?
If you’re thinking, “aren’t all moves one-way?”, it helps to know that one-way moving refers to the locations and equipment you use to move your belongings, not the direction you move. With a one-way move, the equipment is delivered to you or picked up through a location near your origin and returned to another location near your destination. One-way moving is typical if you’re moving long distance; it’s the opposite of a local move where you pick up and drop off moving equipment at the same location. If you’re moving out of state or across the country, take a look at the possibilities for one-way moving and compare services and rates.

Estimating moving costs
If you’re looking for a moving estimate, you may find that each moving company needs different information to provide a price. You may be asked how many rooms you have in your home, if the house has stairs or if you’ll need help packing and loading. Before you can estimate costs, it’s important to understand how different companies determine the price of a move and learn how you can make the most of your moving budget.
