A state to state checklist for moving
I love the e-card on Pinterest that says “Sometimes I write down tasks after I’ve done them, just to get the satisfaction of crossing them off my list.” I agree – there’s just something great about checking tasks off a list. I feel accomplished, efficient, and just happy to be getting things done. For a move out of state, you’ll need a good checklist to keep you on task to ensure a successful move.

The rates depend on what type of moving truck you need and how far you are moving, among other things.

Besides your location and truck size, what else goes into your average truck rental costs? Let’s take a look.
