Discount Moving Companies | A-1 Auto Transport, Inc.
Let’s face it, we all want to save money when paying for a product or service, and hiring a moving company is no different. It can be expensive to pay for movers to load a truck with your belongings and drive it several hundred (if not a thousand or more) miles to your new home. Luckily, there are some discount moving companies in the industry, as well companies that offer specials and discount programs, and steps you can take to save some money along the way. In this article, we’ll detail some of the best ways to go about saving money when moving, as well as how to find discount movers in your area.
Finding Discount Movers
One of the best tools at your disposal when looking for a moving company is the internet. That may sound obvious to some people, but search engines are detailed enough to help you find exactly what you’re looking for. Let’s say for example you live in New York City and you’re looking for an affordable moving service nearby. Simply by adding the search term “discount” or “affordable” to the phrase “New York City moving company” will yield different results than if you were just searching generally for a moving company.
A-1 Auto Transport offers local, long distance, and nationwide moving services at some of the most affordable prices you’ll find in the moving industry. With years of experience and highly professional service, we’re confident you won’t find a better match to suit your moving needs. Call us today at 888-509-3213 for a FREE, no obligation price quote! Our staff is available seven days a week and we’re happy to answer any questions you may have!
Another benefit is that you’ll likely be presented with search results of moving companies that offer a discount program or that have seasonal specials (yes, moving companies do offer specials at certain times of year when business is slower). If you do come across a moving company that has a discount program, be sure to keep them in mind as you continue your search. Typically, it’s a good idea to cast a wide net and contact a few different moving companies to see what kind of pricing they offer. For those that offer a discount program, read it over carefully and see if you qualify. You may notice that some companies offer discounts to active duty and retired military, seniors, students, and any other number of categories. Ultimately, they all want your business so take your time and find the right mover for you, as well as one that can fit your budget.
What Determines The Cost of Moving?
Moving costs are determined by a number of factors, but the two main things are the amount and weight of your belongings and how far you’re moving. With this being the case, you can save a decent amount of money by getting rid of any excess items that you don’t think you’ll need or use in your new home. If you’re able to get rid of a few items, even if you plan replacing them later, can save you a good chunk of change. It’s also helpful when you consider that a larger truck costs more and having less furniture means you can request a smaller truck, which is also a good way to save money.
