Back in January of 2012, my family decided it was time to pack up the things and move to North Dakota. While I was initially hesitant about the move, the slower pace of life really started to catch up to me as the moving date neared ever closer. Moving from the city out to ND was definitely going to be a welcomed transition.
Needless to say, our move was easier than some of the horror stories I’ve heard about online. Our moving company that we hired really turned out to be tremendous. We ended up going with Atlas Vanlines, even though they were a tad bit more expensive. The moving quotes we initially received from them were for about $500 less than what it ended up being, but I guess that is understandable since I forgot to tell them about all the stuff in our garage. Couple that with the fact that we were moving cross country and I think we ended up getting a pretty good bargain when the total tallied up price finally came in.
Moving day was also a breeze. We already had the house pretty much all boxed up and ready for the moving guys to show up and haul everything away. I had previously ordered the cheapest long distance moving companies in america I could find online and that helped save about an extra $100. They were even able to accept returns for all the unused boxes.
While I am definitely glad the move is over and I wouldn’t want to do it again next week, I’d say we had it pretty easy and now it is time to adjust fully to life in North Dakota.
