During these tough economic times, we are all having to do more with less. This poses a unique challenge when moving. If not careful, moving costs can add up quickly. Therefore, with some research and elbow grease, you can move and save yourself some money in the process.
If you are trying to save money, there are many options available to you. First, if you are flexible and a professional mover is in your budget, move during the off-season. Remember, if you are using a professional mover know that you will have options from full service to pack your own. The more you do, the less your cost. Second, if that is not in your budget, you will have to do it yourself. The good news is that there are many choices out there for you. From personal storage containers delivered to renting a truck, you can move while minimizing your cost. The most important thing to keep in mind is to take inventory. The amount of items that you must move will directly impact your cost. Therefore, if you have the time, definitely consider downsizing ahead of the move. This will have the biggest affect on your cost and effort.
