    I don't know if it would be worth it or not but any one have any ideas on how muck it would cost to move all my equipment to Seattle? i have just under $1mil in equipment and inventory and really don't want the hassle of selling off.
    or would i just be easier to have my head super run the bizz here and i start a new one in my new city?

    I would check into what it would cost for an 18-wheeler to move stuff, likely run you just past several thousand, not sure how far you're going but if I recall one Wb cross country used to be $400 8-10 years ago, probably way less per item if you're moving a lot more stuff.

    That or a very big U-haul but I don't think that's going to work?

    I couldn't tell you how much, I'd guess at least a dollar per mile but that sounds awful low, but how high is it, 2-3 dollars per mile?
    See I don't know, but I'd figure guessing 4-6g probably more?

    A national freight carrier, something along those lines...

    When we moved from Portland to Alabama we used Roadway.

    Of course, David worked for them and we got a 10% discount. And it was only household stuff. And, 7 and a half years ago. It cost us $975. But I DO know they ship pallets of private goods and it couldn't hurt to get an estimate.
