It’s no secret that moving can get expensive. After all, when you’re moving all of your inventory from NYC to Denver, you have to take in consideration all the miles traveled and the amount of hard work the team of movers will put into your relocation.
Sometimes spending money with moving is unavoidable but FlatRate gathered a few tips to help your wallet while preparing for your move day.
1. Reconsider Your Inventory
Moving gives you a great opportunity to start fresh and reconsider what is worth bringing along on your new journey.
At FlatRate, the price of your move is solely based on your inventory and the distance you’re traveling. During your initial consultation, our team of Relocation Specialists will tell you how much each item costs and give you an accurate estimate that will remain the same until the job is complete.
If you’re moving long distance, reconsidering your inventory will also reduce your cubic footage — meaning the amount of space your furniture will take on the truck.
2. Move On an “Off” Day
Movers are busiest at the beginning and end of the month, and summers are also the season where most people decide to relocate.
At FlatRate, we recommend that clients move either on Tuesdays, Wednesdays or Thursdays — as Mondays and Fridays are known for being more difficult due to city traffic and other building regulations.
3. Pack yourself
While it’s wonderful to have professionals do the job, it’s possible to do it yourself and save money.
Packing is the essence of moving so it’s important to do your research and make sure your inventory is protected. If you need extra boxes or high-quality packing material, FlatRate offers door-to-door delivery and also multiple tips to help you pack properly.
