advice from an expeirenced mover

During my youth, my dad was relocated for his job several times over the course of ten years. It was hard growing up going through so many moves, but it has helped me learn a lot about packing and moving. Now that I have married a soldier, all of the packing and moving skills that I picked up when I was a kid have helped me pick up and move when my husband is moved to a different base. I have created this blog with the hopes of helping other families going through moves get through them more easily and with fewer problems.

How To Save When Hiring Movers

Moving can be a tough task to complete, especially if your move is happening last minute. If you have little time to find a moving company, you may have concerns about paying more for your service. However, there are ways to save, even if you have to hire short notice movers. Instead of paying top dollar for your moving services, you may find your service to be cheaper if you:

Limit The Help That You Need:

When hiring movers, you will likely be paying for hourly rates, which means the longer that your movers are there helping, the more you will have to pay. You can cut the time that your movers are helping by moving the items you are able to on your own. So, rather than have the movers spend time there just to move light, and small items, definitely consider doing this part of your move yourself, as it will be an easy way to cut the cost of your moving expenses.

Make The Job Easier For Your Movers:

Another way you can reduce the time that your movers are there helping is to have your boxes conveniently located for the movers to load onto the truck. If the movers are constantly forced to walk and load boxes from the back of your home, the longer it will take for them to complete the job. This means you should definitely spend time loading everything towards the front of your home, as this will make your items more accessible for the movers, which can cut the time that it takes for them to load the moving truck.

Move During The Weekday:

Because most people have the weekends off, you could easily see a spike in the cost of your local moving companies. This spike is caused by the high demand that they are in, which is why you will want to avoid paying more by receiving your services during a weekday when people will less likely use their services. Not only will you likely save on your moving rates, but you will also receive better quality service, as your movers won't be in such a rush to complete the job so they can help another client in their schedule.

Implementing these three tips into your move won't only make the cost of your movers more affordable, but they will also help you have a smooth and more efficient move, so you can have a relaxing and enjoyable moving experience. So, if you are in a rush to move out, don't assume that your movers are going to cost too much, as you can definitely find ways to reduce the cost of your moving services.
