How to stick to your moving budget?

 

Whether you’ve been through the moving process before or not, you know that one of the biggest problems when moving is trying to stick to a budget. The process causes you so much stress and confusion that it almost makes the moving experience un-enjoyable. Don’t let that get to your head though; it’s not over yet. There are a few things you can do to insure that you stay within your budget range without taking away the joyful experience of moving.

About 6 weeks in advance, start going through your items one room a time and getting rid of the things you will not need to bring with you. The reason this is so important is because moving companies base how much they charge you on how much weight you will be moving. Keeping your moving weight down is a great way to stay on budget!

Another smart decision to stay within your budget is to find an online moving calculator. These are websites that allow you to type in where you will be moving from and where your new location is along with what items you are transporting. The calculator assesses your information and will give you a rough estimate of how much it will cost you. If you are over budget, you know that you probably need to remove a few items!

What kind of moving service will you need?

 

You should also determine whether or not you would be hiring a moving company in full. Most moving companies give you three options: rent a truck and do the rest on your own, rent a truck and a driver but do the loading and unloading on your own or rent a truck, driver and have a company crew do the loading and unloading for you. Depending on your budget you may not be able to have the whole crew so do some research and see which companies have low rates and offer good deals.

 

Your moving experience should be an exciting time, not a stressful one. Take the above budget savers into consideration next time you are considering a move and spare yourself another headache!

How To Save Cash With Professional Movers

Posted by on Mar 6, 2013 in Professional Movers | 0 comments

8What is the best method to reduce the costs when you hire professional movers? Most people automatically assume that doing everything themselves will save some cash, but there are situations when it simply is not possible. For example, it is practically impossible to transport your furniture with a small vehicle. Therefore, there are cases when you got no other options than to hire a transport service.

Plenty of people are anxious about such services because they have read a series of unsuccessful stories. In some cases, their furniture was scratched, not to mention about not being able to find all their items. Besides, a lot of hidden fees can seriously increase the overall costs. For instance, you might be extra charged for the loading part. Besides, there are cases when you only pay for the truck rental, while the gas expenses become an extra responsibility. However, such things can be avoided with a proper estimate and the right research. Instead of wasting extra money, you can actually save some cash with several basic tricks.

How To Save Some Money When Hiring Professional Movers

Posted by on Feb 18, 2013 in Professional Movers | 0 comments

4Moving around is expensive, whether you do it yourself or you hire some professional movers. All in all, this is an expense you cannot really avoid, whether you switch homes because you move in with your partner or you need to relocate with your job. Fortunately, there are a few simple tricks to save some cash, but you have to do your homework and analyze all your possibilities.

First of all, try to calculate which option is cheaper – hiring a service or moving on your own. The answer depends on multiple factors, such as your time, distance and load. If you got some furniture that has to be moved, you obviously cannot do it with your personal vehicle. Unless you own a truck, hiring a service is more appropriate. Think about the fuel costs as well, not to mention about the number of transports you might need with your personal car. While you might believe that you got the right answer upfront, some research and analyses are essential to find the most effective solution.
