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.
