So what does it cost to leave Las Vegas?

Try $1,880 if you want to rent a 26-foot U-Haul truck, fill it with your worldly goods, and drive it to San Antonio. (In these comparisons, Nov. 3 was selected as the moving date.) But if you wanted to leave San Antonio (August unemployment rate: 7%) and move to Las Vegas, it would cost you only $437 for the same equipment.

That's quite a difference.

So, not only do you have the misfortune to lose your job in one of these high unemployment areas, but if you do manage to procur employment in another state, U-haul charges you more than triple the amount to move? Wow, that really bites.

It may be cheaper to just sell your stuff and repurchase at the new place. Just pack your clothes, etc down in your car and go.

I can definitely say I have been seeing a hell of a lot more out of state plates driving around Houston these days.

Oh yeah.

Rumor Control says if you're moving to Detroit, New York City, Pittsburg, or Saginaw, U-Haul will PAY you to take their trucks.
