Reducing Your Long Distance Moving Costs
Long distance moving is generally more expensive than local moving and keeping your finances under control while moving across the country can be challenging. Below we’ve outlined three ideas to help you minimize your long-distance moving costs.
- Find the right mover: The importance of choosing the right moving company cannot be underestimated. Make sure you choose an experienced company that has a high rating from the Better Business Bureau (BBB). Always get a thorough in-home estimate and be sure to ask as many questions as you need to be confident with your decision. By choosing the right mover you will most certainly help keep your finances under control. Read our article Choosing the Right Mover here.
- Pack your items securely: Never cut corners when packing your goods. Use sturdy cardboard boxes specifically designed for moving and pack your items securely with moving tissue, packing foam and other shock absorbing materials. There’s nothing worse than arriving in your new home and finding broken items that need replacing. If you are unsure about how to pack properly, consider a professional packing service.
- Reduce Your Inventory: Moving is calculated by volume and weight, and the answer to saving money is pretty simple — the less you have, the more money you’ll save. Make the hard decisions about what you’ll bring with you long before you move and donate or sell what you don’t need or want.
