Ok, so we're getting married in May. He's been stationed in North Carolina for over three years, and I live in California. Will the military pay for our move? All my Internet research is pointing to no. Posted by Woofy1989
Shipping it through the post office or UPS would be really expensive. But depending on how much you have to move, and what it actually is (if it's just clothes mostly) it might work out to be much cheaper still. I think it's a really funny way to move, but it might be worth it. Posted by dnbeach12
DH and I drove my stuff from PA to CA. Altogether, for hotels and gas, we paid $750 and that was when gas was more expensive. However, he pulled the U-haul with is Elantra, which probably means we used less gas than you would, and we shipped my car. Shipping my car was the expensive part.At Christmas my in-laws shipped us presents. One box cost them $75 through UPS. IMO it seems like that could be just as costly as driving in the end.Does your FI have any footlockers (referring to the black boxes they take overseas)? I know USPS ships those for like $15-$20 regardless of weight. I'm not sure if that is only to bases though.
