Here are four top secret tips most movers wouldn’t want you to know about but are guaranteed to save you big money on your next move. Some are common sense, but others you may not have thought about!
1. Disassemble/Assemble what you can yourself:
This is without a doubt the number one money saver. Our movers are more than happy to disassemble your furniture and reassemble it for you. They will arrive with the proper tools to do so quickly and efficiently. However, it is still one of the most time-consuming aspects of a move. If you can knock it out yourself, you’ll save some serious coin!
2. Choose your boxes wisely:
Choosing the right boxes can end up saving you lots of money. We recommend using standard sized moving boxes for two reasons. First, most standard moving boxes are more sturdy than your typical box and will thus provide better protection for your belongings. Also, having standard sized boxes makes the loading and unloading of the moving truck go much quicker because they’re easier to pack on the truck and stack on the moving dollies.
3. Donate your unwanted items:
Besides feeling good about yourself for doing a good deed you’ll double dip with this one: you’ll save money because the movers will have less stuff to move and you’ll get a tax deduction for your charitable donation.
4. Label your items with as much detail as possible:
This one may not seem obvious but it is a serious money saver. It can be a pain to have to go through and label all your possessions (like you don’t have enough to do before a move). However, you’d be surprised how much time is dedicated to tracking the customer down during the unloading process to ask where they’d like their items. Cutting down on this time is more money in your pocket!
Bonus Tip. Hire the right moving company:
Choosing the right movers is crucial. Ask your moving company up front if there will be any fees involved. Ask them how they will protect your belongings to ensure they’ll arrive safely at your destination. At Good Movers, we have no hidden charges. Just simple, upfront pricing. We take great care to make sure all your items get to your new home safely. To learn more or book your next move, give us a call today (307-274-8768)!
