Cross-country move - canada
« on: December 13, 2015, 11:08:58 AM »
Any good tips, companies? Idea of cost?

I'm trying to sell off stuff at the moment, but a lot of the things we are still using so will need to be sold/donated last minute. Trying to decide if better off moving or re-purchasing when we arrive in our destination. We have about 4000 km to do.

Having moved 10 times in the past 11 years, I suggest re-purchasing large items and those with no sentimental value (I have barely any furniture left), and keeping smaller items or those that are more expensive per pound (think pots and pans). Re-stocking an entire kitchen is a pain and can be surprisingly expensive, but it won't fill up that many boxes or take up that much room in a truck. Bedroom furntire and couches are huge, unweildy, and can be bought used for relatively reasonable prices.
