As many of us are preparing to move to new states (or within the same state) I was hoping that we could share info. Does a thread like this already exist? apologies if it does... Things I would love to hear from those of you who are about to move and those of you that have done this in years past::: How are you completing your move? Are you using movers? Doing it all yourself? Chucking all your stuff and buying new stuff when you get there? Or...have you had great service from a company worth mentioning or found an unbeatable deal on... services for shipping your vehicle/furniture etc moving companies moving trucks materials related to moving like boxes and other packing materials What resources did you use to find a new place to live? Are you planning to live with roommates or without? Why? Are you traveling with your stuff to the new location before you find a place to live...or visiting first to find a place...or picking a place without seeing it?? Personally, this is my first out of state move and I'm finding that all the details can be daunting...I guess I just want to hear what some *super smart and awesome* people in the same boat as me are planning to do. Horror and success stories welcome!
