What To Know During Your First Move

When you haven’t moved and are finally going through with the process for the first time, the entire thing can be quite intimidating. With so many things to remember, it can be difficult figuring out exactly where to start. Luckily, our team here at Augusta Movers wants to help. We know just how stressful a move can be, but we are here to offer first-time movers some helpful moving advice (that and some stellar moving services)! 

Look After Your Finances 

When you live with other people it can be really easy to keep finances stable. When you move out on your own, all of that changes and finances start to become hard to track. If you want to move out by yourself, you want to be sure that you’re understanding how to maintain a budget so you can go about life on your own with ease and little stress. Some important pointers to remember include: 

  • Keeping track of your monthly expenses: This includes things like your phone bill, utility bills, car insurance, gas, groceries etc. Once you get a hold on how much you spend monthly, you can distribute your leftover expenses accordingly. 
  • Setting a budget for moving out: Moves can get pretty expensive, especially when you’re not putting together a budget. When you want to be sure you’re not spending more than you have to, put together a list with all of your moving expenses including the truck rental, moving service, packing materials, etc. 

Find a Stable Income 

When young people look to move out, it can be difficult when you’re in an entry level role as they don’t pay as generously. Keep in mind that if your entry-level position doesn’t provide you with the sufficient funds to move out, it is best to wait and save up/look for another position so you can move with ease and not worry about money. 

Secure Good Health Insurance 

Everything can feel great and easy, but once you get the flu or your tooth starts hurting, you’ll need health insurance to help with the costs of your treatment. If you don’t have benefits with your job and you’re planning to move out, it’s best to find a career that offers health insurance so it isn’t detrimental to your wallet.  

Do Your Research 

This may seem like an obvious point, but many people let excitement get the best of them and don’t properly prepare/do their research before moving out. When you want to be 100% certain that you make the right decision, doing research on moving techniques, different priced houses, certain locations, etc. is the best way to do so. Create a list of offers you’re interested in, then go through them and find the pros and cons. Each home/apartment/condo will have a number of different features (or lack thereof), and you want to be certain you find the perfect place for your needs. 

Work With The Right Moving Company 

On top of everything we have previously mentioned, always be sure to choose the right moving company. When looking for services, be sure you look for quality, good customer reviews, a hard working, highly experienced team, and good prices. Affordability can, in turn, spare some quality, so be sure you look into multiple companies before making your decision so you can get an idea of what prices they offer and what your best deal for your situation is.
