Moving can become pretty expensive very quickly and depending on the scale and distance of the move, it can amount to thousands of dollars.
Tips To Save Money On Your Move
The We Move Sydney team recommends these seven simple yet effective ways to save money on your move:
1. Clean House Before You Start Packing
Declutter your home and discard, donate or sell items you don’t need to carry to your new home, This will help you save money on transporting things you aren’t going to use or need.
2. Conduct Some Research On Movers
You will find many movers that seemingly offer similar services. Many will also advertise their low costs and discounts. It’s important that you delve a little deeper to find out what is included in their quote so you don’t end up paying more than you need to.
3. Time your Move Right
Most removalists are bust on weekends and at the beginning of the month. If you schedule your move outside these times, mid-month or mid-week, you will save money on the move. Also, its best to avoid moving during peak season which is during school break.
4. Get Creative With Your Packing Materials
It is never economical for you to buy new packing supplies and boxes. Local liquor stores or grocery stores have a lot of boxes that you can get at discounted pricing. Ask friends and neighbours for cardboard boxes or cartons which they have lying around in their garage. Purchase basic packing supplies from a local bargain store so you get them at a discounted rate.
5. Consider a Storage Pod
Storage pods can be placed on your property where you can keep items you need to sort later. It will give you the time you need to de-clutter and save money on added transportation costs.
6. Cut Nonessential Services Early
Its best to cut all services that you don’t need so you don’t have to pay for something you won’t be using up until moving day.
7 Refrain From Eating Out
Ordering out can be expensive so resist the urge to do so. Eating home cooked foods is healthier for you and your pocket.
