Moving always seems too expensive, no matter how much you save and your budget. However, there are a few key steps that you can take to save money the next time you hire residential movers.

In this blog, we'll go over a few tips and tricks that will help you to save on your move. But before we do that, you might want to know more about us.

Have a Garage Sale

This is one of the most common ways people save money during their move. By having a garage sale, you'll be able to get rid of items you no longer need, freeing up space in the moving truck. And the money that you make from the sale can go towards your moving expenses.

Donate Unwanted Clothing and Non-Perishable Foods

Saving space is critical. Go through your closet and find any items of clothing that you don't wear anymore and take them to your local donation center. Even more, you can sift through the pantry; any non-perishable food that has been sitting there for years should go. A quick online search should help you find the nearest food bank where you could drop this off at.

Use Household Fabrics for Packing

You can buy packing materials from moving companies, but it's just an added expense that you could easily avoid. Gather up all of the blankets in your home and use them to pack easily breakable things, like plates and chinaware. Doing this will also save space in the moving truck.

Empty Your Storage

I think it's suggested that you clean out your storage unit and have all items ready to go before the moving company shows up. Of course, the movers will be happy to make additional stops by your storage unit, but doing this will only prolong the move, leading to more charges.

Choose A Company that Fits Your Budget

You should always set a budget and choose a moving company that fits your budget. Make sure to ask the moving company for a written quote so you can know what you're up against before the services begin.
