Not only can moving be stressful, it can also be expensive if you don’t plan ahead and maybe even make a budget to include all the little details you might not think of. Something as simple as sturdy cardboard boxes can really add up.

As far as saving a few bucks when moving, here are a few tips from the All My Sons of Maryland moving crew.

As far as packing materials, try to get as much as possible for FREE. Try the grocery store or as around, your friends or colleagues might just have recently moved and still have a few boxes. Try saving old newspapers in the months or weeks leading up to your move, so you can wrap your delicate items with it. You can also us sheets or towels to pad some of the stuff.

You can pack your items yourself instead of asking the moving company to do it for you. Get a few friends to help out or involve the entire family to get stuff done faster.

Downsize. There are probably plenty of things that you don’t use anymore. There’s no point in moving those items. That’ll just add weight to your load which in turn will cost you more. Give things to charity instead. Or have a garage sale, make a few bucks. You can also try to sell things on Ebay or Craigslist.

Don’t try to perform the move yourself. You can end up injuring your back which can lead to high medical bills and that’s going to cost you a pretty penny. If you hire a professional company, you’ll get a good service and you’ll save your health.

Try to be flexible, so give yourself enough time to actually move. You might find that one date is better than the next or that the weekend is more expensive than the weekday. Ask your moving company if they have any discounts for first-time customers or if they offer any rebates on specific days of the week. You never know until you ask. Be upfront with them and let them know you are looking to save money.
