Cost of Moving: How to prepare for space issues

It is important to know if you have enough space in your new home.

It is important to know if you have enough space in your new home.

When packing and moving, you may not take into account the amount of things you have to bring to the new home. Even if you measure for space, it is possible that you overestimated the square footage in your new home, which can cause quite the problem.

It is a good idea to bring in the largest items first when your moving company drops them off. You may bring your furniture set into your living room and realize that it either doesn't fit like you had hoped, or you can't get each piece in together, no matter how clever you are. This happens from time to time, and you will likely need to do something about it.

There may be other rooms in the house that could use chairs, couches, coffee tables or other items. If this is the case, you are all set. However, if you already have items in there, it may just cause the same problems to keep the same items in these rooms. You don't want to turn one of your rooms into a storage closet if you don't have to.

If you have a large garage, this may be a way to keep your items stored for a period of time. But, even with this solution, you may not want to do it for an extended period of time. Be mindful that your furniture could get damaged if the garage has a tendency to get wet, or if there are bugs or other undesirables in the area. With this information, you may want to look to better options.

One way to solve the issue is to rent a storage unit. These are quite common, and there are likely multiple options near you. While it is a quick fix, it can be pricey. These units cost a large amount of money per month or year, and you may not want to use them if it is just a few smaller items.

If you are not interested in a storage unit, selling the items could be an option, as people are always looking for furniture. This can be even better if you can receive a large return, as it could help cut moving costs. However, if you don't want to sell your couch, it may be a good idea to ask if a family member or friend needs it. Young people going to college or moving to a new apartment are always looking for low-cost or free items to help furnish rooms.
