4 Ways To Save Money On Your Move

1.    Have an economy-plan! When you are planning out the move, mark down each point at which you need to spend cash, and work out a way of reducing it. Have a set percentage by which you would like to cut your costs, and try to hit that target each time. For instance, if you try and get absolutely everything for free, then you may well get a couple of things sorted for free, but the likelihood is that the rest of the move will be considerably cheaper than it would have been, simply because of the way that you have been thinking about things. There are so many points during the move where you spend money, that there are plenty of opportunities where you can save! For instance, if you are looking to pick up some boxes to pack your items in to, then you will most likely find that the new boxes sold by larger stores are quite pricy. The same will apply to the boxes recommended by the removals company that you use, as they will probably be getting commission. In a situation where you are looking to get cheap boxes, you should look on the internet, to see whether you can find them for any cheaper than you perhaps would do elsewhere.

Many people sell or give away used or unnecessary boxes so that they don’t have to take them to the recycling plant, or have them taking up space. Capitalize on this, and you will be able to get your move sorted for a little less, and every little helps! 2.    Give yourself time! If you are rushing things then you are much less likely to be saving any cash. The typical reaction to not having any time in which to get things done is to panic and pay for the problem to go away. If you have time in which to plan everything out then it is much more likely to go smoothly.

If you are in a position where you are looking to get the packing done in a hurry, then you are more likely to make a mistake and leave a certain box full of badly packed items, which could then break! Having to speed through processes means that things will not be done thoroughly, and you are much more likely to have issues that cost you, both in time and money. 3.    Work out how you can get a cheaper removals deal. Whether you need a removals company or not, working a little towards getting the move done cheaper will usually mean that you achieve it. If you haggle a little and get a range of quotes from various companies for comparison, then you are much more likely to get a company who will agree to work to your budget. In this event, you will need to ensure that the company that you are using are not going to do a slack job, as this can be a trap that people fall into. Don’t put any money down unless you have a way of tracing it and getting it back, as there are con artists out there and scammers who will make you think that you have got an amazing deal, but who will simply take your deposit and disappear! 4.    Look into the man and van services. A long wheel base van can carry a three bedroom house worth of furniture fairly comfortably, if you are clever with packing. Therefore, a shorter move could be made a lot cheaper by using the trust van service.
