How To Reduce your Moving Expenses?
October 8, 2010
- When you move with full service moving companies try to book your move with a moving company early as you can. Booking a move before March or after August will reduce moving costs up to 30%. Now that October is here, the moving companies are less busy and you might get lower rates for your move.
- When setting the date for your move, try not to consider weekends. Most of the people want to move during the weekend therefore the moving team will most certain be busy. If you can get a day off work do it. Moving during week days instead of the weekend will save you about 10% – 15%.
- Choose careful between Hourly price rate and Fixed price rate. Hourly price rate is a preferred option for those who have little to move and prefer a do-it-yourself packing and unpacking service. It doesn’t take long and can be very cost efficient. Fixed price rate means a guaranteed price, a fix rate for the whole moving. This is an option for NYC movers with plenty on their minds and for those who have lots of stuff to move.
Try to find used moving and packing supplies they will cost less than buying new packing supplies.
