Cost Saving Tips for Your Upcoming Move

Whether you are doing it yourself or hiring the help of a professional mover like Pack & Load, moving can get expensive. Saving money during your moving process can be done with the help of these handy tips!

Minimize Your Belongings

Some common examples of things that you may consider eliminating include:

  • Unused clothing
  • Expired products (cosmetics, food, etc.)
  • Old Electronics
  • Ruined Furniture
  • Jars and Bottles
  • Receipts
  • Magazines/papers/books
  • Broken toys, tools, or other broken household items
  • Stored knick-knacks
  • Non-functioning appliances

Pre-Pack Some Items Yourself

Depending on whether you are doing a local or long distance move, coupled with how many items you are moving, the cost of packing and moving can vary greatly. You can significantly reduce the cost of your relocation by packing some of your items yourself. We strongly suggest having a first-day box packed with the essentials you will need for your first days in your new home.

Items you can consider Pre-Packing include:

  • Towels/linens
  • Pillows
  • Books
  • Dishes
  • Clothing
  • Toiletries
  • Cleaning Supplies
  • Pet Supplies
  • Toys

When packing your own items, make sure you have good quality boxes, strong tape, and a marker to label each box with its respective items.

Moving is an exciting time and saving money on expenses is just one way to make your upcoming move more stress-free. If you would like to find out more about how Pack & Load can ease your moving stresses contact us here.
