Moving is exciting and fun, but it can also be very expensive. From paying for cleaners of your old apartment to renting a moving truck and putting down a deposit on a new place (or a down payment if you’re buying), you’re likely to drop some cash on a move. While there’s no way to avoid some expenses, there are ways to cut costs. Consider these tips for reducing your overall moving bill–
One thing that can help you to save money is planning your move in advance. This gives you plenty of time to look for great deals on moving trucks, moving equipment, and more, and helps you to avoid paying last-minute high prices. You’ll also be able to cost-compare on different moving musts, such as cleaning services or movers.
At Elite Truck Rental, we sell moving boxes. But we’ll tell you a secret: you can get free moving boxes from a variety of different places, including grocery and liquor stores, neighbors, and by holding onto the boxes of goods that get delivered to your front door. Of course, if you need additional boxes, we have everything you need! (We also have all of the other packing and moving equipment you could need, too.)
Rather than hiring movers, an easy way to cut costs when moving is to manage the move yourself (i.e. rent a moving truck and load and unload without the help of paid labor) or to ask family and friends to help. There may also be some young, fit kids in your neighborhood who would be happy to help at a fraction of the price that you would pay professional movers.
One of the easiest ways to save money when you’re moving is to rent a low-cost moving truck! Rental trucks can range dramatically in price – don’t pay a high price when you don’t have to. At Elite Truck Rental, we specialize in low-cost, affordable truck rentals.
If you are planning to move, the earlier that you make your truck rental reservation, the better. Once you reserve your moving truck, we offer a reservation guarantee. To learn more about our rental policies, our trucks, our rental and moving equipment, or how to make your reservation, please call our team today. We are here to help!
