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?

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.
Asking “how much do professional movers cost?” is smart, but it’s also a difficult (if not impossible) question to answer without getting an estimate based on where you’re moving, how much you’re moving and when you’re moving.
