Military DITY Move?? Renting Uhaul or Budget Moving Truck?? How much did it cost you? How much was Gas for one of those things? What was there MPG??

Anyone done a full DITY move since the 2009 change? How did you did? How much did you end up spending? In the long run was it worth the pain to do it yourself? We have always done partial DITY moves and cleared around 3000 once all was said and done. We've heard that if you do a full people clear closer to 8000 what has been your experience with this? We are moving to fort hood. Army will give us after taxes abotu 9500 to move ourselves, which i think is more then enough, i mean if they are going to move us their movers end up breaking my steuff anyway i might as well do it myself. Have you done it? Who did you rent your truck from? What did it cost? We wont have too much stuff as we plan on tossing just about everything but our MB set , cribs and TV as the rest of our stuff has gone threw 5 moves and it shows. any info would be great.

  • We're not Military, but did move across country last summer (from Louisiana to Upstate NY). We rented a U-Haul, I think it was a 19 foot? It was the "3 room" one, meaning you could move 3 rooms of furniture in it. It was stuffed! It cost $700, plus gas was another $600 and it took us 2 days. Hope that helps somewhat.
