Moving Cheaply across the Country

Moving across the country is a huge deal of work. It takes preparation, time, labor and much more to successfully complete a move. That’s why it is a job best left to the professionals. Luckily, it’s pretty affordable to purchase moving services, even for cross country relocations. Moving services are cost efficient and come with much less risks involved, making them the obvious choice.

When funds are at the forefront of your mind, understand that it is very possible to hire professional movers and still find ways to save. Although it is always in your best interest to buy full packaged moving services, you could choose to pack away your home without professional assistance. It takes a lot of time and effort to pack away your own belongings but you could save some money if you do it yourself.

Tips for Packing Belongings on Your Own

Packing up your belongings will likely take at least a few weeks. Get started almost immediately after booking the moving date with the right mover. Buy the proper packaging materials before you begin packing things away. To cut the costs spent on packing materials and supplies, use linens, newspaper, Styrofoam plates, and other household items to wrap belongings and fill empty space in the boxes.

A-1 Auto Transport 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.

Common Packaging Materials

  • Razor and/or scissors
  • Different size boxes
  • Packaging tape
  • Permanent marker
  • Bubble wrap

When you start packing up your stuff, begin in the room you use the least. Pack away each item putting the heavier things in small boxes. Electronics should go back in their original packages while furniture should be taped, wrapped and even taken apart if necessary. Once you have an entire box filled with household items, tape it shut and label it clearly with the room it is to go in at its new home.

Ask about Sales, Promotions and Discounts

When you call around to gather quotes from various moving companies that have your interest, ask if there are any current sales, promotions or discounts you may qualify for. A lot of times, movers will offer discounts to seniors, students and military personnel. Some movers will offer snowbird specials during off-months and some will open up promotions on holidays and other special occasions. It never hurts to ask the cross country movers if they have any ways for you to save.

★★★★★

There are a lot of options for auto transport these days, which surprisingly makes it harder to find a good company. I received more than 10 offers to ship my car, but I couldn’t decide on any of them... Fortunately, I made the right choice with A1 Auto Transport.
