Employ Friends and Family: Although no one likes to ask for help, having friends and family pitch in to help organize or pack certain non-breakable items can really reduce the overall cost of moving. The more assistance a person gets from others the less they have spend on a long distance move.

Pack Items Yourself: It is best to use movers for packing breakable items such as china or family heirlooms however, packing non-breakable goods is something that can be done to reduce the cost of a long-distance move.
