Moving from NY to MA. What does a 10k moving allowance get me on a one bedroom apartment move?

Moved from Charlotte to NYC 1-bedroom and moving company cost about $3,400 about 2 years ago. So in theory you should have plenty left over for deposit, application fees, plane/train ticket, etc. Good luck!

Did they pack it up for that?

i moved a 2 BR a lot farther than that for about $8K. [movers, mileage on my car, 2 nights in hotels, boxes, etc]

one thing to keep in mind - the tax law changed on moving allowances so there is a good chance it is now taxable income. but even $6500 is a healthy allowance for that distance on a 1 BR. your movers should be $3-$4K.

Did they pack it up for that?

Not feeling great about the whole thing and I want to slowly distance myself from them. What would you do?
