Moving can be costly, not to mention time-consuming and laborious. When you are looking to move on a budget, there are some top tips you can follow to keep costs down and the move as efficient as possible. In this article, we share with you some of our top suggestions.

Ask Around for Packing Materials

One essential cost of moving is that of packing materials, usually cardboard boxes and tape. However, you may not have to buy these brand-new if you do a little asking around. Know someone who has moved recently? They may be happy to drop you some used boxes for free. Some stores such as supermarkets may also have cardboard boxes lying around that they are happy to give to you at no charge. When it comes to tape though, you will want to avoid buying the cheapest kind, especially if you are going to be packing heavy items!

Hold A Yard Sale

Another major aspect of moving is decluttering. After having sorted through what will not be going with you, what do you do with these items? One way to get rid of unwanted items and add some money to your moving fund will be to hold a yard sale. You may also wish to sell these items to second-hand shops or donate them if that is more practical.

Stay Organized

As the saying goes, time is money. Although these tips and tricks may not save you money directly, they do save you some precious time you could be spending on enjoying your new property! When packing, always try to be as organized as possible to save yourself much trouble later. One way you can do this is by color coding your boxes to correspond with different rooms. For instance, kitchen boxes can be green, bathroom boxes blue, living room boxes orange, and bedroom ones pink. This will make unpacking much easier and save you much headache and hassle.

Engage A Professional Moving Company

Let’s face it: moving is not easy. If you intend to do it by yourself, you will have to rent a truck, load all your furniture and belongings yourself, as well as drive it to your destination. This can be doable if your new home is within close proximity and/or you don’t have a lot of belongings. However, more often than not, this isn’t the case.

The simplest and most cost-efficient way of moving would be to engage a professional moving company who can take care of everything, saving you the time and hassle of roping in friends’ and family members’ help and coordinating everything on the big day.

How to Move With PetsUprooting yourself and moving long distance, or locally, is an overwhelming and sometimes disorienting event. There’s so much to think about and keep track of, it’s important to make time to help your pets transition.
