Moving is generally stressful, costly and utterly time-consuming. If you are moving over a long distance, the challenges are even more complex. Working with a reliable moving company is the best way to reduce stress and ensure that your moving project runs smoothly. If you are looking for ways to save money in addition to everything we just mentioned, Augusta Movers can help. We have put together a list of helpful tips so you can save money on your next moving project.
Set Your Moving Budget
Setting a general idea about your spending limits for your move will help you save not only time, but costs as well. You can budget for your total move as well as for specific parts of your move. Set aside money for packing supplies, cleaning expenses, travel and professional moving services as well. Knowing your budget before you start will help you stick to your plan once your project is underway.
Pack Your Possessions Early
Getting your packing out of the way early will help you save time and money. This is a great time to trim down your collection and reduce your number of boxes. Getting rid of things you don’t need or items that are broken is a good way to start. This will reduce your moving cost and also cut down on how much you have to spend on packing supplies. Avoiding last-minute packing will also reduce your stress overall and help you better manage your relocation project.
Time Your Move Properly
Choosing an unpopular hour or season for your move can also save you hundreds of dollars. Most people move in during the warm times of the year, near the end of the month, and on the weekends. Consider moving in the fall, during the middle of the week. This will provide you with more options when it comes to professional moving companies, as well as the roads being less crowded.
Check For Tax Deductions
Some cities will give you tax deductions for moving to certain areas or even during certain times of the year. Students and those who are self-employed also can claim some moving costs as expenses when relocating, so make sure to consult your local tax specialist to see if you qualify. Consider asking your job if they offer any type of moving coverage as well, because depending on your position you may be able to get a bit of relocation assistance.
Shop At The Bargain Store
Buying moving supplies is an essential part of your relocation project, but you don’t have to spend a fortune. Check the dollar store or any other cheap budget location for boxes, packing materials, etc. Tape and other items can most often be purchased in bulk for a fraction of the cost of regular big-box locations.
