How to Save Money on your Move.

How to save money on your moveMoving is not only stressful, it’s expensive! Unfortunately, unless you’re under 25, you probably can’t bribe your friends with beer and pizza anymore.

However, there are steps you can take that will help you save money on your move.

Watch our segment on NECN to learn the 5 things that you can do to save money on your move.

In summary:

1. Plan ahead. Get estimates from several movers and research your options.

2. Move during the week in the middle of the month, if you can. Moving companies often have higher rates for peak times.

3. Declutter. Don’t pay to move junk you don’t want. See our blog post Let’s Get Moving! Step 1: Decluttering for some help.

4. Search craigslist, freecycle or check out your local liquor store for free packing supplies

5. Color-code. Use bright labels, once color for each room of your house. Label both the boxes and the rooms, to make it quick and easy for the movers to unload. Remember, they are charging you by the hour.

Whether your moving locally or cross-country, make sure you hire a reputable moving company. There are a lot of scams out there.
