I just got a quote from a full-service moving company that will load, ship and unload our stuff: $1,700. Yikes. He told me that basically, every 100 lbs. of stuff I wanted to move would be roughly $53.
Clearly it is in our best interest to get rid of as much stuff as we can — especially the heavy junk.
I will get a few more quotes, but that gives me a good starting point anyway.
I intend to sell my Price is Right bed and hopefully I can get a decent offer out of it. The movers said that they are estimating the bed frame to cost about $175 to move, but I think it could be more. It is a heavy bugger!
We’ve been trying to get rid of things over the last year or so anyway, just because we have a small apartment and there’s only so much space to put our junk. I think we’ll want to ramp up those efforts and get rid of whatever we are willing to part with, since it will make our next two moves so much easier.
I’m hoping to do some packing this weekend and wrap up all the little things that we don’t need to have out.
