    Wall St Journal

    (Weekend Edition) did a comparative analysis of
    moving a one-bedroom apartment from Bostion to New York.
    They included a lengthy analysis of estimates given,
    labor, supplies and fees. Here's what they came up
    with:

    Best Price Moving & Storage Co., an independent
    company in Allston, Mass.
    TOTAL: $2,208*

    Cheap
    Date Moving, an independent company, Watertown,
    Mass.
    TOTAL: $2,340

    Metropolitan Moving & Storage Co, a
    Boston affiliate of North American Van Lines
    TOTAL:
    $2,591.39

    U-Haul International Inc., Phoenix
    TOTAL:
    $539.18

    Doreen Doyle Co., Boston
    total: $1,440**
    *Total
    figures exclude insurance and storage
    **Does not
    include moving company fees

    Interesting point they
    brought out was that the number of moves in this country
    is on the rise -- personal moves are up 8.5% in the
    past five years, according to the American Moving and
    Storage Association.
