Learn How to Cut Costs When Hiring a Moving Company.
Considering the fact that moving from one place to another is not a very cheap process, it’s only natural to want to reduce costs. However, when it comes to hiring a moving company, you want to cut costs but, at the same time, keep the same level of quality service. Here’s what you have to do.
One of the biggest secrets of low cost moving is to pack only the things that you really need, and nothing more. Obviously, having less items to move, saves you money on your moving expenses. The question is, how to separate things and what to do with the ones you don’t want to take with you. Luckily, there are many options.
When going through your stuff, consider separating everything into three piles: keep, junk and charity. Make three of these piles in each room and start separating things. As a general rule, if you hesitate about an item, then put it in the junk or charity pile. Things such as old shoes, clothing and stuff that you haven’t used for more than a year are definitely for the junk pile. Things which are still good but don’t worth the trouble of moving them should go in the charity pile. Do this for all your stuff in every room, including the garage, attic, basement, etc.
Another great way to get rid of your old stuff is to organize a garage sale. Things such as old furniture, rusty bicycles, old skateboards, can all be included in your garage sale. Make sure you organize the event at least three weeks before the movers show up. This way you ensure all your unwanted items are gone, so the movers can offer you an accurate estimate.
