How to Save Money When Relocating

Relocation can be expensive. It is possible that you will have to pay double rent, utility connection fees, and the cost of renting a truck or moving company. Planning ahead can help you keep these costs in check.

What are the best ways to save money when relocating?

If you hire a good removals company, your move will be completed on time and won’t drag on for days. Our clients tell us that hiring us relieved them of a great deal of stress.

When hiring a moving company, price is still an important factor to consider. There is always a higher cost for hiring specialists than for hiring a truck, since the company must pay employees as well as cover the cost of the truck and associated equipment.

Here are some tips to keep your moving costs as low as possible:

1. Usually, specialists pack the largest items in the vehicle first. The movers will need to access your mattresses and couches if the hallways are clear.

2. It is preferable to stack boxes neatly without overfilling them. Boxes that are overstuffed may take more time to move or may break, putting your belongings at risk and wasting valuable time.

3. Clothing can be placed in tallboys, chests, or drawers, but drawers may be taken during the move and restored afterward.

4. Ask your friends for help and don’t be afraid to chip in. As many hands as possible make light work, and we appreciate any assistance we may receive.

5. It is less expensive to relocate during the weekdays, and you have more control over when you relocate. Consider taking a day off during the week to complete your move.

6. Can your bed be dismantled easily? It will save you a lot of time if you can deconstruct it and any other reducible products (particularly flatpack furniture like IKEA).

7. You can save a lot of money by asking the movers to transport only your larger items, leaving the smaller items to be transported by yourself. Moving companies will only pick up the big-ticket items and not waste time acquiring minor items you could have carried yourself.

8. Pack all tiny objects in boxes or bags so they can be easily transported to the truck and back. The extra work put in a day or two ahead of time will significantly save moving time.

If you can accomplish all of the above, you should be able to make a cost-effective and stress-free move.
