Useful Tips For Moving on a Budget

All too often do we hear that the number one concern in regards to moving is the cost.  DFW Fireman movers have made a list of useful tips and ways to save when you are moving on a budget.

Fund Your Move With Items You Don’t Need

As you start packing, figure out what you don’t use or need.  Consider selling any unneeded items that are in good condition. You can make money by having a garage sale, selling items to a consignment shop, plus you’ll avoid paying to move items you don’t need. Take advantage of websites where you can easily sell things from the comfort of your couch.  If you do sell items online, make sure to always follow safety precautions.

Pack Efficiently

A little preparation can help you make your move more affordable. Packing can have a cost associated with it, whether you hire movers to do it or do it yourself. Having a mover pack (and unpack) your boxes may add up additional fees.  You may be able to cut costs by packing and unpacking yourself. Use household items like towels or clothing to pad boxes instead of buying packing paper or foam may help you save even more money. Avoid paying for new boxes and find gently used ones from a local store or from someone offering them online, — just be sure they are clean and still in good shape.


Move off-season 

When you choose to move can have an impact on prices.  The busiest time of the year for moving companies is the summertime. Most people prefer to move when the weather is warmer. However, if you decide to move off-season, its possible to get a discount.  It’s also better to move during the week when kids go to school, instead of on holidays and weekends. Weekends are generally busy for movers and they won’t offer you a better price if you hire them at their busiest hour.

Compare estimates

Do your research and get three reliable companies to give you moving quotes.  Don’t base your choice entirely on price. Make your decision using factors like the company’s reputation, the fine points of their policies and your feel for their level of customer service before you make a decision. Be aware of any extra fees the movers may charge, for example, using stairs or elevators.

Move a few things yourself

Let professionals handle most of your things, especially the heavy items.  But you can always move a few things yourself if you have a vehicle, especially sensitive items like computers, jewelry, and photo albums.
