Moving to Richmond on a Budget

Moving on a Budget

Moving to Richmond, or anywhere else for that matter, can be stressful. You must allot a certain amount of time to move your belongings along with all the funds you’ll need to complete your move.  While you’re calculating the total cost of your DIY move, you may have sinking feeling that you’ll be breaking the budget. Don’t let panic set in, our Richmond movers at All My Sons can share helpful tips on moving on a budget. Believe it or not, there are plenty of tips that can help you save money for your DIY move to Richmond. However, if you have too much to move or a pre-existing physical condition, our Virginia moving company offers affordable relocation packages to help you save money while moving.

Get Rid of Unwanted Items

Do you have a tangled mess of phone cords you don’t need? What about that stack of old magazines? Start moving on a budget by de-cluttering unwanted items for your move to Richmond. The more items you move Richmond, the more money you must spend as you must purchase enough packing supplies and rent a moving truck of a certain size to accommodate your valuables. You can begin with the various books you no longer need. Try donating them to libraries or local schools since they always need a new inventory of books. If you’re having trouble parting ways with your books, you can always turn to Media Mail by the United States Postal Service.1 This mailing service allows you to ship a twenty-pound box of books for $12.

Do you have a collection of DVDs and CDs you no longer use? You can donate them to local schools and libraries as well. Use alternatives for DVDs with movie/TV-streaming services such as Amazon Prime Video, Hulu, and Netflix. Substitute you CDs with music-streaming services like Tidal, iTunes, or Spotify, so you’ll still have music as you move to Richmond.

Don’t Purchase Boxes

Of course, you’ll need boxes for your move to Richmond, but you don’t necessarily have to purchase them. When moving on a budget, there are plenty of boxes at your disposal, you just have to ask. Stop by your local liquor store or supermarket to ask for spare boxes. Since a huge portion of their inventory is delivered in boxes, you should have no trouble finding boxes for your move to Richmond. For liquor store boxes, a great bonus is that some of their boxes come sectioned inside, making it perfect to pack drinking glasses.

If you don’t have enough time to look for boxes, you can always opt for our Richmond packing services as these services include packing supplies such as boxes. This can also help save money while moving as our packing services are affordable.
