How to Save Money Moving

Now that you’ve decided to move to Oklahoma City, it’s time to start preparing for the big move. You might prepare by changing your address on important documents and accounts in advance, closing on the new home, and so on. Once you’ve got the important errands out the way, you take the time out of your day to calculate the total cost of the move to your new home. After adding up all moving expenses, your stomach drops when you realize how much overbudget your move will cost. The Oklahoma City movers of All My Sons Moving & Storage share how to save money moving to OKC.


Don’t Purchase Boxes

One of the cheapest ways to move to Oklahoma City is to refrain from purchasing boxes. But how else can you pack all your valuables? Believe it or not, there are plenty of free cardboard boxes at your disposal, all you have to do is ask. Many grocery and liquor stores have cardboard boxes laying around since most of their inventory is delivered in boxes. Boxes from the liquor stores are especially ideal if you need to pack drinking glasses or glass bottles because they’re partitioned.


If you can’t hunt for cardboard boxes, you can always opt for our Oklahoma City packing services. Our Oklahoma movers can save you both time and money when you let us take on the packing task for you. We offer our packing services at affordable prices, so you won’t have to worry about breaking the bank.


Tax Write-Off

Though not an immediate, quick fix when you want to know how to save money moving, you can use moving to your new home as a tax deduction. However, there are certain criteria you must meet before the IRS can consider your move a tax write-off. First, the move to Oklahoma City must be job-related and the position should be full-time for at least 39 weeks within 12 months of the move. [1] In addition, you must have relocated at least 50 miles from the original residence.
