5 Exceptional Ways to Save on Moving Costs
Relocation may not seem like a stressful and an expensive affair. You're just packing and loading your household goods in a moving truck and transport them to a new home, right? However, when you start the commercial or residential moving procedure, you'll realize there're a lot of costs involved- like rental trucks, hiring a full-service moving company, packing materials, charges for heavy lifting, etc. Luckily, Dodge City cheap movers offer affordable moving services.
Here are five ways you can save on moving prices.
A long-distance moving company that conducts interstate and cross-country moves will give you the moving quote based on the weight of your furniture and other treasured belongings. Therefore, if you can manage to reduce the weight of the items, you will pay less.
A local moving company will also charge you based on the time taken to complete relocation tasks such as loading, packing, unloading, and unpacking services. By downsizing your items, the movers will take fewer hours to complete your move- hence you’ll spend less money relocating your items.
A-1 Auto Transport, Inc. can help you move your household goods nationwide. Call 888-509-3213 to get a free, no obligation to buy price quote on interstate moving services.
You don’t have to wait until you’re one week to the moving day to start packing your valuables. Within one week, you won't be able to search for a reliable and professional moving company. More so, you might miss on a great deal as you will not be able to interview several moving companies.
Get packing materials as early as possible. You can get boxes from, local vendors or from friends. Go ahead and book a moving and storage company about four weeks before the moving day.
Put together a budget that is based on a cost estimate and plan for all stages of your move. Take your time to go through various quotes from multiple movers, and then choose a company that offers cheap moving services.
Research before Committing
You would not want to hire a company that is not licensed or insured. Do a thorough homework to ensure you only choose the best moving company. Choose a company that's associated with AMSA and Department of Transportation. You can check the company claim history at the FMCSA as well as the reviews at the Better Business Bureau website.
Movers can have hidden costs and insurance, so ensure to research the rates thoroughly.
Pack Your Belongings
One of the best ways to have a stress-free and inexpensive move is by performing some tasks on your own. Make your office moving process seamless by packing your furniture. If you require professional assistance in packing fragile items, you can hire moving labor services.
More so, use clothing and blankets to wrap stuff like glassware, dishes, and other prized possessions. This way, you will save tons of money on packing materials.
Packing supplies carry significant moving costs. Make an effort in getting free boxes from your trusted and courteous friends and relatives. More so, you can visit a nearby grocery store or a recycling center and get some empty bags and boxes. Your loved ones will not only give you packing boxes but also help you in packing your items- safely and efficiently.
