Moving can be a significant expense, so staying within your budget is important. If you’re careful, there are ways to save money on your next move. Brothers Moving offers our top 3 tips on keeping cash in your pocket when it comes to your move.
Tip #1 – Find a Reasonable, High-Quality Mover
Working with a professional makes a considerable difference in your move. Your mover can help you to save time and money. In addition to making sure that your belongings are securely packed and moved, they can complete those tasks in a more timely fashion. Part of your moving package includes labor, fuel, and moving vehicle costs. Instead of worrying about hassling your friends and family members to help you, a professional mover can help you save money…and relationships!
Tip #2 – Toss What You Don’t Need
Why pay to move something that you don’t need or use? The best part about moving is taking the opportunity to purge your house. Get rid of old clothes, broken items, unwanted furniture, and other belongings. Sort the piles into keep, store, trash, and donate – it makes moving a lot easier. Not only are you not paying extra money for packing supplies, you don’t have to pay movers to transport the boxes.
Tip #3 – Maximize Your Utilities
Make sure you don’t start or turn off your utilities before it’s necessary. When you’re moving between houses, it’s important to make sure that they’re available by your move in date. However, you should attempt to coordinate the service dates so you’re not overpaying on two properties. For instance, if you turn off your wifi before you’re done moving out, you could waste money on data overages. Additionally, don’t forget to turn off smaller utilities like water.
