In order to move within your estimated budget, take the following steps:
It’s better to make a list of items to be moved and plan everything. Book a moving company 2 weeks before moving date. Plan to move on a weekday or in off-season as moving during busy season can cost 25 per cent more.
Get free packing from friends who have recently moved or get boxes from local grocery stores.
Hold a yard sale and earn an average of $200.
Use newspapers, bed sheets, towels to pack fragile items.
This will help you reduce labor cost by $30.
Contact moving companies for moving heavy boxes or big items.
Cut down on meals when travelling.
