Whether you’ve just purchased a new home or you’re moving to a new rental, moving your furniture and belongings is another expenditure in an already expensive process. Here’s some tips for saving yourself some money.
There’s a lot to organise before the moving trucks even arrive and it’s essential that you have everything ready before they get there. If you’re not ready to go then you’re going to delay the process and that means it will cost you more money for the extra time the movers have to be there.
Don’t be afraid to toss
When moving house, many people discover they just don’t have room for all their belongings at the new property and have to organise storage for some items. This can be very expensive, especially if you planning on leaving them there on a semi-permanent basis. Being discerning about what you decide to throw away can lessen the amount of things you need to put in storage.
Donate the good stuff
On that note, always be sure to donate any items that are still in good condition. You can donate clothes and small goods at designated bins or most charity stores will collect larger items from your home. Just be sure you do this before you move, as realising you don’t have room for items means you’ve already paid for them to be moved to the new place. This can be a costly waste of your time.
Sell what you can
While you’re saving some money, why not try to make some money? If you have stuff you want to get rid of and you think someone else might find value with it then organise yourself before the move and sell what you can before moving day. This way, you save money because you’re not shipping the goods with the movers and you stand to possibly make some money too.
