How to Save Money When Hiring a Moving Service Company

The most important thing you should know about moving is that costs add up fast. Between shopping for supplies and browsing for a moving service company, you can easily exceed your budget if you’re not careful. However, cutting corners is also not a very good idea. So, if you want to move on a budget, then you should definitely follow these guidelines.


This is the part of a moving project where you can save a lot of money. However, this doesn’t mean that you should use cheap boxes or cut corners when it comes to packing supplies. The best way of saving when moving is to get rid of as many things as you can. Many of us keep stuff in our homes that we never use. So, as a rule of thumb, if you haven’t used an item for more than a year and it has no emotional value, then get rid of it. Here are several more tips on how to save money while packing.

  • Start ahead of time. The sooner you start packing, the better. Depending on the size of your home and the amount of stuff you’re looking to take with you, we suggest that you start packing at least three-to four months in advance. This way, you’ll have plenty of time to collect boxes and pack your stuff right.

  • Collect boxes. If you’re short on moving boxes, then consider visiting some of your local grocery and liquor stores. They usually throw their boxes anyway, so they will be glad to give them to you for free. Just make sure that the boxes you’re taking are durable and strong.

Choosing the right moving service company

If finding a reliable mover can be challenging, finding an affordable moving company can be impossible. This means that you really have to be careful when browsing for movers. The best way to approach this is to ask for many estimates and then do an apple-to-apple comparison.
