Moving is a big task and can require quite a bit of time and labor. While moving is not the most expensive service you can hire, it is also not the cheapest.
In many cases, hiring a moving company can actually turn out to be less expensive than moving yourself.
Here are a few great savings tips when hiring a moving company.
1. Make A Budget…and stick to it
Having a budget and sticking to it is the most important thing you can do to save during a move. Since the moving process can become hectic at times, having that budget will help keep you from making any unexpected costly decisions.

2. Start Early
The earlier you start, the more time you will have to gather affordable moving supplies. You will also have more time to get rid of items you do not need to move, which will cost you more. Many expenses during the moving process come from last-minute purchases or being forced to move unwanted items due to unpreparedness.
3. Toss, Donate, or Sell Items You No Longer Want
The more stuff you have, the more the move will cost. Consider lightening the load by getting rid of items you no longer want by donating them, selling them, or throwing them away.

4. Hire The Right Moving Company
When finding a moving company, find one that is BOTH quick and careful. You don’t always want to hire the least expensive moving company. Sometimes movers will estimate your move lower than other movers just to get your business, then ultimately you will have to pay the final cost based on extra fees.
5. Be Prepared For The Movers
One of the most important things to do to save on the cost of moving is to be ready for the moving company. The more prepared you are for the movers, the quicker the move will be and the chance of unexpected costs will be less.
