Planning to move across the country and wanting to not go broke in the process? We understand that moving is inevitably expensive, but there are certain things you can do to slash the costs. The best thing you can do is to hire the movers well in advance and anticipate some glitches and plan accordingly. Here are a handful of tricks and strategies for moving across the country.
Select a smart move-out date.
Timing can be your friend when it comes to moving. Try to schedule your move during a weekday so you can score a less expensive price.
Don’t wait until the last minute to pack your boxes. The last thing you need to be doing is packing boxes as movers load the truck. Factor this into your cost of moving when you plan.
Your moving company will do a walk-through of your home prior to moving day, and they will estimate the weight of all of your items. This is what your rate will based on. If on the day you actually load, and your items weigh less than what they estimated, you will get a discount. If you’re not going to use or need some of your things, then donate it to your local thrift store. You could also consider a yard sale.
Invest in good boxes.
The best boxes to use for moving are those you find tossed out back at your local liquor store. Those boxes have to transport breakable objects full of liquids that will stain whatever it touches, so they have to be good. An added bonus, they are free!
Hire professional movers.
Hiring professional movers ensures the most high-quality move. They will load your belongings carefully, drive the truck across town, and unload items in the appropriate room in your new home.
