Want to save money on your move this fall?

Posted on October 1, 2014

For some, moving costs don’t pose an issue.  You are able to choose whichever company you would like to use and you have the ability to sit back, relax and let us take over.  Other times that is not the case.

When it comes to moving, there are many different things that can cause the price to be overwhelming at times.  On the flip side of that there are some things you can do in order to keep costs down.

Follow these simple steps to keep from stressing about moving costs.

1.  Transportation.

While it seems like a simple task to drive a truck to your next location, transportation costs include a few things not seen on your estimate.  These things include labor, weight and packing.

– Labor.  This includes the time and energy for the crew to wrap, load and unload your furniture.

– Weight.  The labor in order to load and unload furniture and boxes is calculated by how much will be moved.  Moving may be a great time to downsize a bit as well!

– Fuel.  As fuel fluctuates, sometimes costs for moving can too.

2. Packing.

Some of your things such as breakables need to be packed by the professionals.  Other things such as lamp shades, books and other miscellaneous items can drastically cut costs if you choose to pack them yourselves.

3. Additional Services.

Items such as washing machines and dryers can add costs to your estimate if you are counting on us to handle this for you.  Servicing these items can save some money if you are willing to do the work yourself.


We hope this has helped, let us know how we can help this fall.  Don’t wait too long for an estimate, give us a call todaay.
