Affordable Moving from Place to Place

August 29th, 2012 - 3:52 PM

Many people think affordable moving is just too far beyond reach to grasp. Not true! Check out these tips for affordable moving from place to place:

Get quotes
To truly see what’s out there in terms of price for moving services, it's best to start getting moving quotes. They will tell you not only the price of your move, but also what's is included in your move. For example, a U-Pack free moving quote includes the fuel, professional driver, taxes, liability coverage and highway tolls. You'll also see the estimated transit time. 

Compare quality
Once you have the numbers in front of you, sort those moving quotes by quality. What do you get for your money besides the equipment to move? You know what all is included in your U-Pack moving quote, but what’s included in truck rental and full-service?  Affordable moving and superb quality characterize U-Pack perfectly.

Get organized
Moving from place to place is easy when know exactly what you need to do and when to do it. Use a moving checklist and moving timeline to stay on task before, during, and after your move date. Save yourself some time and money by having a plan in place!

Take care of the little things
The little things include mostly everything you need to do at the Department of Motor Vehicles in your new state. Remember to update your driver’s license, vehicle registration, and assess your personal property, etc. Getting the little things done allow you to focus on getting your new place just the way you like it!

Pack less
Before you start packing away your belongings, remove what you don’t need. Make some extra cash by hosting a garage sale. Consider donating the items that aren’t worth taking with you. You see, the less you pack, the less you pay, at least, that’s how U-Pack works!

Ask questions
The more questions you ask, the more informed you’ll be about each moving company you’re researching. Ask if they offer ways for you to save on your move.

Get to know your new state
Visit your new place ahead of time, or do some extensive research on the internet by visiting the Chamber of Commerce and City websites respectively. You might be able to save money by getting local coupons or discounts for connecting your utilities, going out to eat, or home improvement.
