Money Tips: 5 Ways to save money when moving

Five Ways to save money when moving:

1. Plan ahead: Planning well in advance gives you the opportunity to compare moving companies, find deals on packing supplies and take advantage of cost saving opportunities. Last minute decisions can lead to rushed choices that may end up costing you more.

2. Declutter: Before packing, go through your belongs and declutter. Donate, sell, or discard item you no longer need. This not only reduces the amount of stuff you need to
move but also cuts down on packing materials and moving truck space.

3. DIY Packing: Instead of hiring professional packers, consider packing your belongings yourself. Collect free or inexpensive boxes from local stores, friends, or online marketplaces. Use clothing, towels and blankets as padding to protect fragile items.

4. Compare Moving Quotes: If you’re hiring a moving company, get quotes from multiple
companies and compare their services and rates. Be sure to ask about any additional fees and inquire about their insurance policies. Choose a reputable company with transparent pricing.

5. Use off-peak Times: If possible, schedule your move during off- peak times. Moving during weekdays or during the middle of the month can often be more affordable than moving during weekends or at the beginning or end of the month, when demand is
higher.
