About Me

organizing your next move

As a military spouse, I have a lot of experience packing and moving. I have learned what to leave out until the very last minute and what can be put away long before the move. I have learned what will be needed the first night in the new home and what can wait several days or even weeks to be unpacked. My blog can help you get through the organizational aspects of your move. Once you are organized, everything else will fall into place and the rest of the move will be nothing more than moving boxes here and there.

How To Pay Less For Your Movers

If you are moving on a budget and feel like hiring a moving company may be too expensive, then you may want to reconsider. Moving companies can be very affordable if you prepare for their arrival and plan accordingly. To ensure you are able to minimize the cost of hiring movers, you will want to do the following:

Move on a Weekday:

Because many people have weekends off from work, they will likely plan their move around these two days, which can make the schedule for your local moving companies hectic. This will increase the rates for your movers due to supply and demand, which is why you will want to avoid weekends when moving. Not only will moving on a weekday be more affordable, but you will likely receive better quality service as your moving company may not feel rushed to get the job done, as weekdays won't be as busy as their weekend schedules.

Hire Movers for The Heavy Items:

Chances are, you are able to move the small and lighter boxes that you need to have moved, right? Well, if you're able to move all the small items by yourself and with the help of some friends, definitely consider doing it. Hiring movers to move only your large and heavy items can save you more than you think. This will eliminate labor costs while allowing you to have all the tough and heavy items moved into your new home.

Have Your Boxes Packed and Ready to Go:

Making it easy for your movers to access each item that needs to be moved is important. This will help speed the process that it takes for your movers to load the truck, which can eliminate labor time. To ensure you make this process as fast and easy as possible for your movers, you will want to have your boxes packed and brought to the entrance of your home. This will make each box easier for your movers to get to, as this will eliminate them from having to walk all the way towards the back of your home to grab a box. This will speed up the loading time, which will reduce the time you are paying for labor charges.

Taking advantage of these tips will help you eliminate the time that your movers are helping, which can cut the labor charges that you pay. Along with saving money on your moving services, you will be able to have a more organized and more efficient move, which will make for a better moving experience.
