Wait. I’m a Moving Expert?
Had you told me 20 years ago that someday I would work for a moving company, I may have called you crazy. Up to the point of graduating from high school, I moved exactly ONE time—at the wise age of one, so memories of that day are a bit hazy. :)

How do I find a U-Haul location?
To locate your nearest U-Haul store, you’ll need to visit U-Haul’s website. But, before you go, take a second to learn about getting a cheap move without having to drive.
You might automatically think that renting a truck is the easiest and cheapest option for your move—which may be true for local moves. However, if you are moving long distance, you might not realize that you can move cheap without having to visit a local office, pick up a truck, or drive. U-Pack is a great alternative to truck rental because you can get discount moving without having to drive at all.

It was a little over two years ago that I tied the knot and moved into a new home with the love of my life. With two years of marriage under my belt, I was asked recently by a soon-to-be-married friend if I had any tips or advice about moving in together after they’re hitched. So I racked my brain, relived some great memories, consulted some experts and told her this:
