Moving Tips to Save Time and Money
- Pack an essentials “kit”: Think of this as your survival bag. Pack things that you know you cannot live without, such as your coffee maker, curling irons, gym clothes, and work clothes. The days leading up to the move and the week after will be much easier if your essential are all in one place.
- Downsize: The cost of your move depends on either the weight of your entire shipment (long-distance) or the amount of time it takes to complete (local). Both are affected by the number of things you own because the more you have the heavier it will be or the longer it will take to move everything. Get rid of clothes, appliances, and furniture you no longer use. You can even sell some things and put that money toward your move.
- Set up your utilities before you move: Instead of moving into a home that doesn’t have internet, cable or hot water try moving into a home that has every utility you want instead. By doing a little work ahead of time, you can have a home that feels like it’s yours and you can reward yourself with your favorite video game or TV show after completing the big move.
- Use your own belongings as packing supplies: Instead of paying for bubble and shrink wrap, use your blankets and sheets to safeguard your glasses, dishes and vases. You can also stuff clothing into any gaps in the boxes you packed to keep things from bumping into each other.
- Take measure of your moves: If some of your furniture doesn’t fit through the door or hallway, it will need to be disassembled by the moving company, which costs extra. Take the time to measure your hallways and doors to ensure extra service charges don’t get added to your final price.
