Unless you have big bucks, don't move a bunch of stuff in a moving company long distances. Too expensive. Sell all and get new there. If y ou can pack your things, rent a truck and drive and not across country, then that might be workable. It could be $85-100 a day for truck rental and some gas as well. Gas is expensive now. If you are only moving to the next state over, and you know someone who can store your stuff in a basement (like Mom), then you could take what you really need and get the other stuff another time or rent a trailer (cheaper than a truck) to move a couple of loads if you can get there in 1 day, unload and get back the next. That could be as low as $20-40 a day and no gas except for your car (and rental of a hitch if you don't have one). Can he afford housing and food until you can get a job? If not, might want to find a job first. Write agreeemnt to split cost of move since you are going there.
