How To Cut Costs For Your Moving Day

Everyone knows that moving into a new home is an expensive venture for your family, but there are lots of ways in which you can work to cut costs and spend less money for your house move. Here are just a few of the great ways in which you can make your pennies really count!1)    Use second hand packing materials.Packing supplies and materials will make your belongings easy to transfer between properties, and you’ll be able to keep your fragile items safe if you use the right items. Some packing supplies can be expensive, but you can easily source second-hand boxes for your moving day! Local shops and stores are often more than willing to donate cardboard boxes if asked – just make sure that they’re secure and sturdy by using packing tape to thicken any weak parts! You might also want to ask family and friends to find out if they have any boxes or packing materials you could use. Another great idea is to use any original boxes and packaging that you might have in your home (for example, the box your television came in).

These boxes have been designed to hold the weight of that item, and you won’t find a better fit anywhere else! 2)    Use items from around your home.Your home is full of items that can help you move quickly and cheaply. Suitcases, plastic storage boxes, under-the-bed storage units, drawers and rucksacks make great makeshift removal boxes for your items, and they won’t cost you a penny if you already have them! In fact, using these items will save you from having to pack them away in large boxes, saving you time and effort! 3)    Shop around for the best removal company and services.If you’re going to be hiring a removal company then make sure you shop around to find the best deals for you and your family. Consider the services you need, and anything extra.

Some companies might offer you great deals on packing supplies or other such services if you hire them, but they might offer much more expensive prices than others! Use your initiative when shopping for a removal company and try to follow the recommendations of friends and family to avoid falling for any moving day scams! 4)    Find a great deal on your storage unit.Lots of people use storage units during their move and if you’re keen to do the same then make sure you’re checking lots of different companies to find the right price for you. Consider the area in which the storage unit is found in, the time for which you want to rent it and the security measures in place. It’s easy to save money by hiring smaller units or mobile storage units, and some out-of-the-way storage facility locations might be cheaper as well! 5)    Ask for help from family and friends.Your family and friends might not only be able to help you with your packing materials! If you don’t have the budget to hire a man with a van or removal services but you have too many items to move on your own then why not call in any favours owed to you? Friends, colleagues and family can help you with heavy lifting, loading and might even be able to provide you with more methods of transport. Ask around to see who can help you without wanting you to pay a fortune!
