Moving is certainly a huge nuisance and a huge expense as well. When moving into your new home, you have to put a down payment on the new house, put all the utility bills in your name, secure your mortgage, and perhaps even invest in new furniture. Surely all these things can leave your cash flow quite low, making it somewhat difficult to imagine paying for moving expenses as well. The folks here at The Green Truck Moving & Storage Company want to help make your move more organized and more affordable. We have put together these useful tips to help with Atlanta move.
Avoid Hidden Charges
One of the most important steps to take when hiring your moving company is to ensure that you have a detailed estimate itemizing all your expenses. You don’t want to find at the end of your move that there are additional fees that you were unaware of and find yourself fumbling around for cash flow to pay the unexpected difference. Your moving estimate should include costs for the actual moving service, fuel, travel fees, mileage costs and any additional miscellaneous charges such as stair fees, packing materials or insurance costs.
Obviously, these fees can add a great deal to your bottom line. Here at The Green Truck Moving & Storage Company you never have to worry about hidden fees. As a top-rated moving company all of our costs are included in the final price we give to you. The number we provide is a detailed estimate, which means you know all your costs upfront and can be confident in the cost of your move.
Downsize and Minimize Clutter
It makes perfect sense that the less items you need to move, the less it will cost to have them moved. Prior to your actual move date, make a point of weeding through all your belongings and getting rid of anything you no longer want or need. Throw away items that are broken or useless and donate those that you no longer have a need for. By decluttering your home before the move you will save a great deal of time for packing which ultimately will save you money as well.
Pack as Much as you Can on Your Own and Pack Early
Many movers find it easy to pack their bedrooms, family rooms and bathrooms, but opt to have their moving company take care of the more complex rooms – the kitchen and dining room. The latter rooms typically have a whole lot more items, glassware, dishes, cookware, and abundant other items tucked away in the cabinets. By packing some of your own rooms you will obviously save money. Take a bit of time to determine which rooms, if any, you are comfortable packing yourself.
Also, don’t wait until the last minute to start packing. Pack early on, perhaps a little bit each day, so as to alleviate the amount of packing the movers will actually have to do. Many people put off packing to the last possible moment and then find themselves having to rely upon the moving company to help get the packing done in ample time. This ultimately will cost you more money. Pre-packing is essential to the efficient and money saving move.
Move As Many Small Items As Possible Beforehand
When you choose to hire a moving company it is probably primarily because you need professionals to move your larger items, furniture and the likes. Moving smaller items and smaller pieces of furniture will save a bit of money for you and will, in the long run, save time as well. Whatever small items you have that will fit into your family vehicles and can be transported to the new location, you should make it a point to transport them yourself rather than include them on the large moving trucks. Fragile items and valuables should be transported in your vehicle as well since they have a significant value to you.
