Moving on a Budget
The moving process can be costly. While there are some investments that you shouldn’t skimp on to ensure a successful move, there are some corners you can cut without sacrificing quality. Our professional Seattle full-service movers have helped moved countless people with differing budget amounts. They suggest these three ways to save money on your next move.
Use Recycled Moving Boxes
Packing materials may not seem too costly as first, but the cost of packing materials adds up as you pack more and more of your belongings. A great way to save money when moving on a budget is by re-using old boxes instead of buying new ones. Make sure the used boxes you’re filling up are sturdy. Boxes that transported books, liquor, heavy fruit, and office supplies are ideal choices. Scavenge at your local bookstore and grocery as well as you own workplace.
Before you start packing, take some time to declutter your old space. Get rid of things you no longer want or need. By decluttering before moving, you save yourself from using up packing materials on things you will likely throw away at your new place. If you hired professional Seattle full-service movers, the less things they must pack and load onto their track, the more money you save.
Unfortunately, moving scams are not always uncommon in the moving industry. If you are moving on a budget, you’ll want to avoid these at all costs. Be sure to do your research before hiring professional Seattle full-service movers.
Make sure the moving company you choose is properly licensed and insured. Verify their certification status on the Federal Motor Carrier Safety Administration website by checking their USDOT number. At Established Moving & Storage, our USDOT number is 3064331.
