While no one loves to move, it’s important that you do all you can to make your relocation as smooth, stress free and easy on the wallet as possible. This is especially the case when it comes to local moves, where you’re likely not receiving any sort of corporate relocation assistance that could help to defray some of your moving costs. At All Points Moving & Storage we’ve worked with a large number of customers over the decades and have in turn put together a list of a few ways to help you save money when it comes to your next local move.
How to Save Money During a Local Move
Box Up and Move Some Items Yourself
One way to save money if you’re moving within a small local area is simply to do some packing and moving on your own before the moving company arrives on moving day. It’s important that when you’re receiving a moving quote that you don’t include any items that you think you’ll be handling on your own. In addition, keep in mind that if you aren’t able to move these items on your own you’ll, likely have to pay more on moving day for the additional boxes and items to be moved to your new home.
Hire a Local Reputable Moving Company
While there are countless moving companies in the Connecticut area, your results may vary when it comes to having a smooth, stress free moving experience. Don’t make the mistake of hiring a mover simply because their quote is extremely low. Before hiring any moving company it’s important to do some research to ensure they’re properly licensed and have been in business for quite some time.
Look for Free Boxes
Buying new boxes can add up quickly when you’re moving a large amount of your belongings. Do yourself a favor prior to your next move and find as many boxes as possible to help reduce your moving costs. You can often find free moving boxes at various stores that receive large shipments on a regular basis. You may want to first try large warehouse clubs, as well as grocery and local liquor stores.
