AAA Study: 1 in 8 Plan to Move this Year

Summer for most people means warmer weather, backyard barbeques, family vacations, and moving season.  According to a recent AAA Consumer Pulse™ survey, 1 in 8 Nebraska and North Dakota residents (13%) plan to move within the next year. The majority of residents (61%) plan their move for the spring (April – June) or summer (July – September).
 
“Most people pay for their moving expenses using cash or savings,” said Rose White, Nebraska Public Affairs Director, AAA – The Auto Club Group. “During a move money can be tight, which means most consumers are looking for the best value for their dollar when paying for things like moving trucks and packing supplies. Taking advantage of discounts, like those at AAA, and timing your move correctly can save you a substantial amount.”
