Save Money on Your Move

When you sell your We Buy Houses | Strathmore CA: When you sell your house, you will obviously need to pack up and move to another. Whether you have one in mind already, are moving in with relatives, or are going cross country to start a new job, moving is expensive. There is no getting around it, even if you do it all yourself.

Save Money on Your MoveIf you will be hiring a mover, get several bids because you will get a different amount for each you ask. Find and use the least expensive that will give you the best value for your money. If the cheapest bid uses gorillas to help move the furniture you might want to go with the next lowest bid. You also want to look out for thieves who will pack up your goods and head to part unknown to sell off your stuff. There are scam movers out there, so ask for references, get recommendations, and make sure you are hiring real professionals.

You’ll notice when you ask for prices that everything from moving vans to professional packers and movers are more expensive during the most popular times to relocate. If you can arrange your moving dates to include weekdays and in the off season you are more likely to get a cheaper rate. Be sure to ask for all fees associated with a move or you may get a surprise. Repacking boxes that are too sloppy to stack in their truck, waiting for you, climbing stairs, and moving very heavy things are all examples of extra fees that could be charged to you.

Save money on moving boxes and materials by gathering boxes and trash bags ahead of your move. Let everyone you know that you are moving and that you need sturdy boxes. Ask the local stores to put boxes aside for you instead of crushing them. Moving boxes are surprisingly expensive when you must buy them, so avoid it to save yourself lots of cash. Also fill every container you can find. Use plastic tubs and bins, shoe boxes, and suitcases. Sheets and towels can be packed in with your breakables. Clothes can remain in their dresser drawers.

Renting a truck for moving and enlisting your friends and family to help is the best way to move. Depending on how far you are going, it may even be cheaper than using several of your friends’ pickup trucks to haul your stuff since gas is so expensive these days.
