In a recent study by AAA, one in four Michiganders plan to move within the next year. 

Fifty-six percent of residents plan their move for spring (April - June) or summer (July - September), the study says.

Where's everyone going? Forty-five percent of Michiganders are moving within the state, 30 percent are moving within the same city and 20 percent are moving out-of-state.

AAA released these tips to save money while moving: 

  • If possible, schedule your move mid-month, mid-week or even during winter months to get the best rates. Most people move at the beginning or end of the month, during the weekend or in the summer when moving rates are higher.
  • Get quotes from several moving services and search for discounts.
  • If moving for work, ask your employer to take care of some of the bill. Also, some moving expenses are tax deductible, so keep all your receipts.
