Moving to a new home is both an exciting new opportunity and an expensive project. Whether or not you’re on a strict budget, cutting costs wherever possible will serve you well. Here are four strategies for saving money when moving—
Don’t make the mistake of paying for boxes and other packing materials if you don’t have to. Instead, ask friends, neighbors, and even local stores if they have boxes available that you can use. When packing, use old T-shirts and rags to protect glasses and other fragile items. If for some reason you can’t find the moving supplies that you need for free, at Elite Truck Rental, we have moving supplies and equipment for sale and for rent.
Another strategy for reducing your costs when you’re moving is to get rid of those personal items that you no longer need or use, ranging from the various kitchen appliances you have to clothing that you no longer wear to various odds and ends. Selling such items can generate a little positive cash flow, but selling or not, getting rid of things will mean saved time and a reduced load to carry. If you donate your items, you may also be eligible for a tax deduction.
It’s important to keep track of your moving expenses because, in some cases, you may be able to deduct costs. According to the Internal Revenue Service (IRS), while the normal deduction for moving expenses has been suspended, members of the Armed Forces who are on active duty may still be able to deduce expenses. Also note that if you are moving for work, your employer may help by reimbursing you for some of your costs – be sure to ask!
