    This ☝️ Well said. Penske is a decent option, and if you can compare prices between your destination and departing places, whether it’s California or any other expensive place, rent from the destination place if they’re cheaper.

    How much space you need depends on your necessities, medical or work equipment etc., but I agree with people saying one long standard u-haul should fit most of your stuff.

    The last time I did an interstate move was before the pandemic. Before that, even moving countries was easier than moving states in some ways now (with lockdowns and whatnot). And it’s more expensive and more red tape. Places that are less regulated aren’t necessarily always better because some of those places are targets for the next “natural disaster” and the lack of regulation isn’t for the people’s benefit but for the benefit of developers and wealthy people looking to take advantage of a crisis.

    I’m wishing you luck, you have my prayers 🙏 Hopefully you can move soon and the place you go is a lot safer and better for hunkering down than where you are now. Believe me, I’m in the same boat as you now with my husband and I looking to move
