Tips to Help You Save Money on Your Move
Whether you’re moving across the country or across the town, moving comes at an expense. There are many different things to help reduce the cost of your move. It’s best to have an idea of a budget to get yourself started. Selling your un-used and un-wanted items, still in good quality, gives you a chance to add more money into your budget as well.
- Compare prices with different companies. Every company is trying to compete with others. Negotiating your price for something lower may be something they will consider doing for you.
- Packing yourself. Sometimes you will find free boxes in stores, or even from friends and family. It also wouldn’t hurt to ask them if they had any materials that they didn’t use anymore.
- Purchase moving insurance. It might not happen, but accidents can occur, and your valuables won’t be fully covered by the moving companies’ insurance. A lot of time they are based off weight so overall your items won’t be covered like you may think.
