Every year more and more people are moving into new homes. In the U.S. alone there are millions of families moving locally and relocating long distance. If you are moving because your company is relocating, your move is organized and paid by your company. But if you have just purchased a new home because you have chosen to life elsewhere or you are retiring and going south, then the burden of moving rests on your shoulders.
