Moving House is exciting, however, can also be time consuming, stressful and costly. There are a number of ways you can reduce your moving costs as it can be a particularly expensive time. Northern Beaches Removalist provides a number of options to suit different budgets. Here’s how to minimise your moving cost.
Don’t Have Your Moving Date Set In Stone
If you can allow for some flexibility when it comes to moving dates and times you can often get a cheaper deal. Generally the middle of the month is more cost effective than at the beginning or the end. Week days are usually cheaper than weekends. Contact your preferred Office Removals Sydney to find out what times and dates would secure you a cheaper rate around the date you expect to move. Work around this date rather than planning your move beforehand. Book around 6 weeks in advance to allow for more availability and also to give you time to plan ahead.
Do Your Own Packing
You don’t need to get the full package if your budget won’t allow for it. Get organised weeks in advance and begin the packing process yourself. If you do all the packing then all you have to pay for is the Removalists to load up the van and take it to its destination. The more work and time you require from a removals company, the more it’s going to cost you. If you get a head start by doing as much as you can beforehand you can save quite a bit of money. You could even look at sourcing second hand packaging and boxes to reduce costs further.
Have A Clear Out
Moving house is a great opportunity to have a good clear out. If there are things you don’t use any more hold a garage sale, sell it in other ways or give it away. Selling some of your things can free up more cash to put towards removals services. The fewer items you have to move, the cheaper it will be. Get organised several weeks in advance so that you can arrange to get rid of your unwanted items first.
Take Items With You
Even though a truck will be required to take the bulk of your things if you have a car you can pack that up too to reduce the quantity that needs to go on the truck. Smaller items are ideal for this as you can put them in your boot, on spare seats and in the foot well. Only pay to have larger items including furniture to be moved to cut costs. When you ring up for a quote have a good idea of what you will be having moved. Check what is included in the quote so you don’t have any surprises when the time comes to pay your bill.
You can reduce the costs when it comes to moving house. Being flexible with dates and times helps as well as packing your things yourself. Getting rid of anything you don’t need beforehand reduces the quantity and the price. If you can fill up your car with some of your things you will save on removals costs. Northern Beaches Removalist can help you with all aspects of relocating at an affordable price.
