Reduce Your Moving Costs by a Fraction
All My Sons Moving & Storage of Maryland has been in the business for four generations. We have the best tips to help you reduce moving costs. Keep reading to find out!
- Be Flexible
You should try to avoid moving in the summer, if possible. This is peak moving time because the kids are off from school and parents want to get their kids into the new house before the new academic year starts. If you have to move during the summer, try to avoid holidays and the beginnings and ends of months, as these times are when leases usually end.
- Hire Professionals
Hiring the professionals can seem like it’s going to cost more upfront, but going pro decreases the chances of damaged belongings. It also keeps your move efficient and on schedule. Don’t wait until the last minute to do this either. Moving companies are in higher demand and may have steeper prices during in-demand seasons.
- Do Research
Make sure to do your research and find the right Maryland moving company that will treat you with excellent service. If you do choose to hire the professionals, don’t ever settle. Just because one company gives you the lowest quote, doesn’t mean they are going to take care of you well.
- Get Rid of Stuff
Don’t take every last lamp to your new house. You most likely don’t need it and you will be so much happier not taking clutter to your new house. This will help you save on packing products. The more stuff you get rid of, the less packing products you have to buy to pack everything up.
- Stay Organized
After you have gotten rid of everything you aren’t taking to your new house, keep everything organized. Don’t start throwing random things in boxes because you don’t want to pull your hair out when searching for that one necklace you want to wear or is too costly to replace.
- Label Boxes
Categorize and label each box as specifically as possible. This way, if unpacking is delayed at your new house, you will avoid buying duplicate toiletries, cleaner or other household products.
- Leave Items in Drawers
Use your dressers as boxes. You can leave your items in your dresser drawers to save space and money. Be sure to put them in plastic bags to contain them and keep them clean from dirt and dust.
- Have a Garage Sale
Having a garage sale will get rid of all your extra belongings while also giving you more money in your pocket. Don’t wait until the last second to do this though, you don’t want any extra stress. This is something fun to do weeks in advance of your moving day.
