How To Save Money on Your Next Move

Moving can be quite the expense — from buying packing supplies to hiring residential movers, it is no easy (or cheap) endeavour. Even so, there are certain ways to save money on large projects such as this. Here at Augusta Movers, we want to talk about ways to make your move less expensive so you can feel a bit more relaxed and stress-free during this often tiresome and chaotic process. 

Decluttering is Important 

When it comes to saving on expenses, one of the best ways to do so is making sure you are fully prepared. One way of preparing, in this regard, is by decluttering your home prior to your move. Less items that need to be packed equals less work for movers to do, as well as less product to be used, etc. The best way to properly declutter your home is by creating a few labelled bins/bags titled “Keep, Throw Away and Donations/Consignment”. This way, any and all of your items will have a place to go so the more important items can be prioritized and packed accordingly.  

Label Your Boxes 

As briefly mentioned in our last paragraph, labelling is an important factor of any hard working task. After all, the more organized you are, the quicker and easier things will be completed. This goes with labelling your moving boxes as well. In many cases, this is one of the easiest ways to get your move done in an efficient amount of time. To do this, be sure to categorize your boxes by the room or type of item. Clothes should be their own separate category from linens, and boxing items by their room makes it much easier when you need to unpack into your new place. Colour coding on your boxes is also an option for those who prefer further organization.  

Remember The Hidden Items 

When you’re performing a move, it can be extremely easy to forget the little things when you’re caught up in so many other tasks. Even so, it is important to try your best to remember the little things, such as the items that can end up hidden in certain parts of your home. Be sure to check places such as your dishwasher, the space underneath your bed, areas behind curtains, the attic etc. to ensure that any and all items have been removed from the home. If you make sure to hire a professional moving service, your risk of forgetting something is much lower, as movers will almost always do a final walk around to ensure that everything has been packed away.
