Living in an apartment has many benefits. You don’t have the expenses of owning a home, but you still reap the benefits. Usually you sign your lease, and can move in almost immediately, a small deposit, and you are in. If something goes wrong, you just call the landlord, and ask them to come fix it. You have a clog in the sink? Call the landlord. Sometimes even something so ridiculous as a burnt out light bulb can be a landlord fix. Pest control is also usually included in your lease. You never have to leave to go swimming, biking, walking, work out, take your kids to the park or even often times play golf. You might even have a lake at your apartment complex to fish in at your leisure. You have your own little home, within a home. Sometimes the apartment complex even has an on site daycare, so your children are safely being cared for in your safe home environment. You have neighbors at very close range, in case you might need help, or borrow a cup of sugar, or just want to have someone come over and hang out. You are very frequently in a gated community, so not a lot of strangers can get close to your home. You want to go for a late night swim, you can, almost like owning a fancy home, without all the expenses. There are often community centers in apartment complexes, and weekly or daily activities, so you can hang with neighbors and make friends. You have an on site laundry facility, or even possibly a washer and dryer in your apartment, so it is very convenient. The units usually come with a built in microwave, fridge and stove, more expense you don’t need to be burdened with. You want to exercise after work, just head to the weight room and do your thing. As stated before, you never really need to leave. You might have a patio or balcony to relax on, you can put a container garden on it, without having to mow a yard, what gets better than that? No grass to mow? Sweet! There are sidewalks so a late night walk or bike ride is convenient and safe, no dodging cars, or worrying about muggers. live oak apartments are usually located close to town, so if you happen not to have a car, you can easily go to the store or work on foot, without walking for miles.

I need to rent a 24 or 26 foot truck from either penske or budget to move 1800 miles. I will also have a car trailer with a mustang on the trailer. Please mention wether gas or diesel was used.
im guessing about $600. i drove a 24′ from los angeles to las vegas and the move was aprox. 300 miles and used up a whole tank of gas(87 regular unleaded) which costed $100 to fill. you are driving 6 times the distance i did which is how i came up with $600. the best way to calculate is to call the rental place and ask them what kind of fuel mileage the truck gets and calculate from there.
