Doing Your Own Packing

While a professional moving company can have all your belongings packed in a quick and organized matter, packing services are often expensive. You can easily save money by packing your own belongings and loading them on a portable storage container or truck. Packing your own boxes also ensures that your belongings won’t be damaged or mishandled by negligent movers.

Getting Rid of Unwanted Belongings

For most moves, the price of your move is often determined by the total weight of your goods. If you wish to reduce your budget, selling or donating your belongings can save you a significant amount of money on your move. Not only will selling unwanted items like clothing, appliances, and furniture lower the price of your move, you can make some money back to help cover the cost of the move.

Save Money on Packing Materials

While packing materials are one of the cheaper moving expenses, the cost can add up quickly. Luckily, there’s a plethora of sources from which u can get free boxes, padding and other packing materials. Some of these locations include:

  • Grocery stores
  • Book stores
  • Liquor stores
  • Large retailers
  • Your workplace
