How to Save Money By Minimizing Your Moving Costs

Buying or renting a new home can be expensive. So it’s only natural you want to save money by minimizing moving costs. Air1 Moving & Storage provides a budget house move service while maintaining the highest professional standards. And this is our professional advice if you want to move home cheaply.

GET RID OF YOUR OLD JUNK BEFORE MOVING DAY

The less you have, the less it will cost to move. So consider your belongings. Would you buy it again, if you didn’t already have it? If not, it may be time to pull a Marie Kondo and politely thank it for its service. Check out our blog post How to Get Rid of Furniture In Los Angeles for more ideas on minimizing.

START TO COLLECT BOXES RIGHT NOW

Get your groceries delivered in nice sturdy boxes? Then put them to one side in order to repurpose them for your move. Ask in your neighborhood stores if you can have their old boxes after delivery day. Normally people are happy to give you boxes for free because it saves them the job of disposing of them.

Also think about how you can get soft padding materials for free. Magazines and newspapers can be scrunched up to protect crockery and glassware as well as electricals. Similarly…

REPURPOSE YOUR CLOTHES AS PADDING

OK not your best suit or dress. But your hardy jeans or sweaters can do a great job protecting those breakables when you want to move home cheaply. And all this repurposing is great for our planet as well as being easy on your pocket.

TAKE JUST ONE DAY OFF WORK

Time is money so you need a reliable moving company like Air1 Moving & Storage. When you move in one day there are no lost working hours.

Most people know a moving day horror story that goes a little something like this: Someone you know chose an unreliable moving company and got left in the lurch on moving day. So they had to call and apologize to their boss. Rearrange that clincher of a meeting. Postpone their performance review… it doesn’t bear thinking about.

DON’T REPLACE: KEEP IT SAFE!

We know you want to save money by minimizing your moving costs. But in the midst of all this frugality, bear in mind the huge cost of replacing broken valuables.

Say you need to move artwork or a piano. Both are easy to break, in the wrong hands. So it’s a false economy to get a dirt-cheap moving company. Why? Because they won’t really care about your stuff. As soon as you’re not looking they’ll start tossing your breakables around. And because it’s all boxed up you won’t notice all the breakages until after they’re gone.
