5 Simple Tips for Setting Your Moving Budget

5 Simple Tips for Setting Your Moving Budget

We can all admit that the worst part of moving is the cost. A successful move costs money, especially if you want it to be stress-free. Still, you can mind your finances with these five simple tips for setting your moving budget. Learn what to expect.

Take Inventory of Your Items

Before you start packing, make a list of everything that’s coming with you to the new place. Once you know what you’re going to pack, you’ll know what types of packing materials you’ll need. While it’s safe to get more boxes and tape than necessary, you’ll save money by only acquiring the amount needed for your items.

Compare Quotes From Moving Companies

As soon as you know you’re going to move, start shopping for moving companies. Call to find the best price and compare quotes and services. Many companies book far in advance, so you should start looking months before your move to ensure you get the date you desire.

Make a Checklist

List all the expenses you’ll incur during your move. You may uncover some hidden costs while moving. The best way to prepare is to make a list, which may include:

  • Gas
  • Meals
  • Rentals
  • Cleaning fees
  • Tips
  • Insurance
  • Storage facilities

Let Things Go

If you want to save money on your move, get rid of as many items as you’re willing to part with. The fewer things you move, the more money you’ll save. This is because it takes less time to move when you have fewer items. Plus, you’ll save on packing supplies.

Prepare for the Unexpected

Leave space in your budget for wiggle room. You never know what expenses you might incur as you begin your move. Once you get started, you can’t go back on relocating. Signing a lease or mortgage sets in stone your decision to relocate your business somewhere new. Make the move successful when you predict the likelihood of unexpected issues.

We couldn’t be happier with our recent move with Simply Moving.

Their prices were affordable, in fact, a lot cheaper than the quotes we got from the other movers we had called in the NYC area.

On the day of the move, the crew arrived early, and were fast, diligent, organized, and professional. All our furniture …

I had a truly 5 star experience – they were on time, gave me a call an hour before arriving, packed everything neatly and efficiently and placed all items in my new place perfectly. Did the job as promised!

Great group of MOVERS.

The movers arrived 15 minutes ahead of schedule, when it was cold and rainy. I wasn’t able to pack everything since my mother had passed away a few days before my move. They made me feel safe and helped pack things gently and quickly. They were patient and very positive and compassionate. They were too notch. Highly recommend their services.

Dear Stefan, I want to tell the public how wonderful your company has treated me. Has stored my possessions and has delivered everything with the utmost of care. Thank you will all my heart for the service you gave me and the protection you provided for all my things these years. If I had to rate your company I would give you a ten…!

P.S. when I got the delivery we thought there was an antique shelf missing but I found that behind some boxes after the truck left…So I have it all and am filled with joy…
