Default TBH person who knows interstate moving options?

The plan is to Ďretireí, list and sell the house in Cali in Q1 and move to Montana- God willing the housing and stock markets donít nosedive. I could very well be offered a high tech job there with very little looking- hence Ďretireí.

Iíve moved from A to B before and mover packed everything at A and unpacked it at B. Pretty straight forward.

I need to move 1/2 into temp storage to stage this house to sell, and Iím planning to rent initially when we get there- not sure where exactly or size or furnished/ unfurnished.

Iím certain this is not the first time somebodyís done this and I want to understand what the options are with an interstate mover vs. DIY.

With all the people bailing-out of the golden state for the great state of Texas- anybody in that industry who I can give a call?

Montana- Elk herd moving to alfalfa fields on my last day and walking 30 yards from my white pickup and Iím 3/4 mile above them in the pines waiting .

most major moving companies will come in and crate up what you want then put in their storage until you are ready. I take care of the service for an Atlas location and can get you a number if you would like to talk to someone to see exactly how it works

My wife asked over the weekend when the house is sold, and everything is in storage- where do we go? I suggested we buy a cab-over for the RAM and head to Texas and do a road trip meeting folks from TBH starting in West Texas, seeing friends I have met in San Angelo, Dallas, Austin and finish in Houston.

Maybe bring a bow and fire-stick and chase pigs.

By then, Montana should be warmer.

All I can say after having stuff in storage for over a year is invest in climate control. We didnít, but should have. Ended up throwing a bunch of stuff away that was ruined by humidity and pests. Even with mouse poison, we still had mice tear stuff up.

I've done the cross country move a few times. Last time I had to have them store my stuff for a couple months until the new house was ready. This seemed to be a normal request, they did it for "free" for me because it was only a few months.

Call 3 major moving companies, let them know what you need and go with the best offer.

Beware of Pods if you expect climate control.

Sell most of your crap and get new stuff.

It amazes me to see what people pay someone to move from point to point....

Montana doesn't warm up until 10 July, then there's three weeks of warm.......

Finally got tired of trying to save Calif from themselves, Montana is a good choice.

When we moved from PA to TX we considered renting first. The mover offered holding our stuff in storage for a fee but that wasn't included in my relocation package so we didn't do it. I wish we did rent now because I am not real happy with where we bought our house.

Good luck and congrats!

When my Daughter made the move back to Anchorage she used ABF. They drop a trailer and you load. Charge by the foot.
When we make the move in the Spring we use them or a UHAUL crate.

Glad the plans are coming together Bill. You should definitely come to Texas and let it warm up before going to Montana. I can put you on hogs in San Saba pretty easily. We could also get a few Granger hunts in too.
