Saving money during your move

Saving money during your move

Moving can be a difficult experience, forcing you to spend a lot of time and energy packing your possessions into boxes, organizing a moving company and then having to unpack and get a home arranged all over again.  The good news is that there are some tips that can make the process simpler and save money at the same time.

Moving companies charge either by the hour or by the volume of your possessions; either way, the more stuff you have, the higher the cost of the move will be.  There is likely to be an additional charge for the more complex relocation, such as an interstate move.  Moving companies may also charge more if your property is hard to access and means that they have to navigate through narrow alley or down flights of stairs.  The best thing you can do is to get a complete appraisal of all the likely costs and then compare quotes from at least three different moving companies in order to get the best deal. Take in consideration the reputation, licensed, registered and not a fly-by-night company.

When you have come to an agreement about price with your moving company, make sure that you check the terms and conditions before signing the contract to ensure that there are no hidden costs.

You should also confirm the amount of Valuation  you have purchased for your upcoming move.
