Heavy duty road service is the best way to move heavy equipment.
Making a long distance move can be costly and a difficult task. Often times you are not able to spend a lot of time looking for places to live since traveling to the location is an added cost many can not afford. Also, some end up moving rather abruptly for jobs, so aside from costs, there is not much time to plan. Further, if one plans to haul all of their possessions with them to the new location, there is the expense of renting a truck or a heavy hauling trailer and gas.
My good friend learned just what an expense and how exhausting moving across the country can be when she decided to follow her boyfriend to Anchorage, Alaska. They were moving for a job, which gave them little time to prepare. Not only that, but there was no time to fly to Anchorage to look at apartments, they had to rely on Internet images.
They left from Michigan, which is where their families reside, and made the trip over a one week time period. They drove a Range Rover truck towing a trailer. This expense alone ended up costing them over $2,000 in gas. On top of that, there was the trailer rental fee, hotels and eating expenses.
Once they made it to their new home, the apartment was not as it appeared and on Internet and they had to live without furnishings for a while. It was not until after they both were working again that they could furnish their new apartment and really start to make it feel like home.
These two were happy in the long run with their decision to move, but were unprepared for how expensive the move ended up being. The point here is, it is better to plan ahead and have some money saved if you are planning to relocate. Moving long distances always costs more than anticipated and without adequate preparation, may not turn out how you hoped.
