Where to Start: Hiring Movers or DIY?

Moving is hard enough on a family but it shouldn’t be hard on the wallet. Finding ways to save money in this economy is high on the list of priorities these days. Whether you are relocating for work, moving to save money or moving into your first home; there are ways to save money on a move.

Recycle those boxes. One way to save money on a move is to recycle the boxes lying around the house. Doing this will save more money than if you were to purchase the boxes from a local storage company. From shoe boxes to the copy paper boxes to the reusable plastic storage bins, use them all for packing. You can also check with the local grocery stores on their delivery days and see if they are willing to give away those leftover boxes. When you contact the movers, you can also see if they have boxes included in the moving service. 

Skip the expensive bubble wrap. To save money on a move, consider using newspaper. Most convenience store carry stacks of those ‘free’ papers so pick up a few every time you visit the store. Don’t get carried away by swiping the entire stack of course. Newspapers come in handy for wrapping those breakables and are much better for the environment that the plastic bubble wraps should it end up in the landfill.

Contact movers. Compare pricing, discuss the moving process and schedule a pick up date. Provide the company with all the necessary details about your move. Save time by comparing multiple moving companies all at once. 

Pack it up. You’ll save money by doing your own packing and since you’ll be the one doing the unpacking, having it all organized is important. Be sure to label each box so you’ll know what is in each box. It could cost more to have the moving company organize the move by doing the packing and moving your belongings so to save money just do it yourself.

Ready, set, move. Now that you have carefully wrapped and packed all of your valuable possessions and scheduled the movers, it’s time take a short breather before they arrive. You’ll want to save your energy but maybe knowing that you saved money on your move will make that a little easier to do.

Now that you have closed on the new home, connected utilities, and have moved everything in, it’s time for the administrative stuff. Updating your address on your driver’s license, credit card accounts, and most importantly with the Post Office. 

  • Update your driver’s license. You have about 30 days from the time you move to update your driver’s license with the local DMV.

  • Update your information with the credit card companies. Not only do you want to make sure your accounts are up to date, updating your address will also help in keeping your credit report updated.

  • Update address with bank. Your bank accounts also need to have the correct information when it comes to your address. It is Federal Law.

  • Update your mailing address. Contact the USPS (United States Post Office) to update your address and ensure your mail is forwarded from your previous address. You can do this online at USPS.com

Consider Protecting Your Investment with a Home Warranty Company

 

Home Warranties can be convenient and save you money on major repairs long after the manufacturer’s warranty has expired. By paying an annual contract fee and a service fee of $75 - $125 for each claim, your asset is protected.

There are several home warranty companies to choose from. Here are some of the ones that have the best service however I do not promote one over the other. The only downside in having a home warranty is you are completely at the mercy of home warranty when it comes to getting things repaired. Their schedule revolves around the vendor availability in most cases and emergency repairs are often scheduled within 24 hours.

Here are the top home warranty companies out there:

 

  • Choice Home Warranty

  • America’s First Choice

  • Select Home Warranty

  • Total Protect

  • HSA

  • Old Republic

  • Guaranteed Home Warranty

  • Landmark Home Warranty

  • Stanley Safe Club

  • Allied Home Warranty

  • American Home Shield

  • BFS
