Moving Tips: Process doesn't have to be expensive

Moving can be affordable.

Moving can be affordable.

When planning to move, you may want to take some precautions to make sure you save as much money as possible. According to a report from SmartMoney.com, this doesn't have to be difficult, and consumers could do well to try to alter their moving plans to maximize cost-savings.

It is important for you to look for the best times to make the move, the news source explained. This may seem odd, but the beginning and end of the month can have much higher moving costs than in the middle of the month. In addition, those who move mid-week may save the most, as weekend moving prices can be higher.

"People move based on their own personal schedules, and most people prefer to move when their children are out of school or they have some time off," moving industry expert Laura Vauer Darr told the news source.

Keep in mind that you shouldn't move everything that you have in your home, the news source noted. This could be a good time to clean out what you don't want and either throw it away, donate it or have a tag sale. The less you decide to move, the easier it will be. Everyone has items that they don't need, and it is important to determine what is needed, and what is wanted. By taking some time before moving to point out everything that has to move, and putting the remaining items aside, you can really make the process much less stressful.

It is important to not leave packing up to the moving company, the news source said. This is because you can make the process easier for everyone involved - including yourself - if you do the bulk of packing. Making sure your items are safely packed away makes the entire process easier and less stressful. In addition, this allows you to know where everything will be when it is time to unpack later on.

Moving doesn't have to be difficult, and by putting some thought into the process before it is undertaken, everyone will come out happier.
