The Monthly Moving Tips by Summit Van Lines

Did you know on an average every household in the United States moves with goods worth 7,400 lbs? Yes this means that you have to pack up a lot of stuff if you plan to move and this stuff can take as many as 100+ boxes to relocate. Relocating this much goods can be costly but you can eliminate some costs by doing stuff yourself. This guide will help you understand how to move smoothly to a new place all the while saving up on costs.

First off determine how much you have to move

Going to a new location means that you will have to pack up at least 80% of your existing goods. But before you start, go around your house and make a list of things you need to move and have a separate list of stuff you can sell or give away to charity. This way you can easily eliminate the burden and reduce the stuff you have to move ultimately reducing the effort and costs.

Do you have adult kids?

Moving around with kids is going to be a lot of trouble. If you have young kids that cannot help with the moving process, have them taken care of by sending them off to your friends or family for the moving day. If you have adult kids, they can greatly help you around compiling and packing stuff and even help in unpacking when you reach the new place. Old age people need to be taken care of the same way children are taken care off, so send them off to rest at a friend or family’s place.

See your budget

Once you have made a list of things to move, start listing down the budget. See how many boxes and other tools you are going to need in order to complete your move. Take out a register and start noting down the costs. You can easily cut some costs here if you are very low on budget. But if you have plenty to spare, you can even hire professional movers who can greatly help you out with the whole process. Just remember, professional services will cost you a bit of money. A good time to hire professional help is when you need to move very large things like your furniture.

Cut down on the costs

There are going to be plenty of things in your house that you do not need. You can consider selling off your worn off furniture or just giving them away to charity. That way you won’t have to move too much stuff with professional help. Head over to craigslist and post a list of goods you do not want to take with you and you will be surprised how many people will be interested in taking that stuff off from you. Alternatively, you can also call a local charity in the area. They will come and pick up the goods you do not need and get them delivered to the needy.
