move everything or buy there? in Officially Grads Posted May 28, 2010 I think I'm going to use Door-to-Door. It'll cost me about $2,500, but the things I have are pretty expensive and would cost more to buy again than to move. This is the price of working for about 15 years before returning to school. You have a lot of stuff with you that you've gathered that will be much harder to get when you get out. And, there's lots of sentimental stuff that you also take. Also, I know I'll be so poor when I get out of school that I'll not be able to buy the TV that I was thinking of getting rid of during the move. Door to door will charge me $1,500 for one big 8 x 5 x 7 box and then another $800 for another box, which I'm going ot take. It'll take 2, but I've just got oto many books and a nice couch,a nd 2 bikes, and computer stuff, and my entire life.... ugh... Just too much to give away, and then not be able to replace on poverty and internship wages when I'm done.
