Planning your out of state move is cheaper then you think and in fact, there are a lot of low cost state to state movers out there if you know where to look. A lot of us when looking for or are planning to move out of state on a budget and many of the people moving will think that selecting a truck rental company to move themselves is the best solution.

Actually the best and cheapest way to move is to use these moving tips to have the best solution for the upcoming out of state move whether you are moving to the state next door or a far cross country move as you have to always figure in your moving plan these factors.

1:  Fuel

2:  Truck rental cost  vs full service movers

3:   Your time if you move yourself  vs a moving company

4:   Tolls  and of course the equipment to protect your belongings during the  move.

5:    Insurance coverage by the truck rental company vs  a moving company

To sum it all up when you have figured in the cost of fuel that you need to run your rental truck it will cost you more at the back end of the move meaning when you deliver your rental back to the rental company you will have to spend even more money when you have to fill the gas tank back up before you return the truck and will be an additional couple hundred dollars out of paying for your relocation.

Cost of Rental Truck  vs moving company cost

When you really think about it it would cost you more by renting a truck to move yourself then using an state to state mover and so many have asked me why and my answer is this.

  •  The number one answer is that the rental trucks are in most cases to small for most household moves today as most families or people have more items then a Twnty Four Foot truck will hold and don’t worry about Uhauls so called jumbo mover when in fact all it is nothing but a 24 foot size truck when you do the measuring. Most households movig today require a moving truck that is at least 2200 cubic feet or more to do the move in one trip. In fact, Budget and Penske rentals are even smaller then a Uhaul jumbo mover truck.  Today we all are looking for the best deal and the best deal for you to move for a lot less is select a moving company to move you as your move will be done in one trip not two or more costing more time and fuel.
  •  What is your time worth to you when planning your state to state move?  The answer is as most people would say I really don’t have the time to do this move in more then one trip. We all seem to be in the overload status in our everyday load to get everything done but often it rolls over to the next day or so. In a move it can be certain that you don’t want to come back for a second trip.

An additional cost for your move will be the equipment you need and probably looking for help for the loading and unloading of your rental truck and then the blankets, hand trucks that you will need . These items will be an additional cost to you on top of the truck rental, fuel, tolls, labor . With all these additional cost it would make perfect sense to hire an long distance moving company to give you all of the above in one simple moving cost sheet and let you be the shipper/customer and get the things you need to get done without all of the above.

Finally, Insurnce coverage.

Did you know that most truck rental companies don’t have enough coverage to cover any losses if something were to happen during your move and especially if your rental truck is hit be another vehicle while you are driving to your destination.
