There are lots of ways to save time and money when planning a move in the Greater Fall River area.
Streamline the Moving Process
The more stuff you have, the more it will cost to move. You will need a larger truck, you will require more commercial moving crates, and you will require more friends or family to help you get the job done. Before you even start packing or have us deliver your reusable plastic moving boxes, take time to go through your home and get rid of anything you don’t need. One method used by professional organizers is to separate belongings into four piles: things to toss, things to donate, items to sell, and the stuff you want to keep. You might be surprised to find out that there are many things in your closet or storage that you haven’t used in years that could be sold, donated, or thrown away. This will help you to streamline the moving process and make it easier to get everything taken care of on moving day.
Kitchen Pantry, Fridge, and Freezer
Most people give notice that they are moving approximately 30-days in advance. Take this opportunity to cook and use everything you currently have in your pantry, refrigerator, and freezer. This will prevent you from having to pack and move food items and cut down your grocery and takeout bill during this period while you are planning to move. If you have a lot of things that you won’t be able to eat during this 30-day period, consider donating some to a local food bank. Many organizations will happily take your heavy canned goods and boxed items. This can significantly reduce the number of things that you will have to move on moving day.
Order Services Early
The sooner you can contact companies to rent a moving truck and schedule delivery of eco-friendly plastic crates, packing supplies, and other necessities, the easier the whole process will be to complete. Contacting services early can ensure on-time delivery and pick-up while ensuring the services you want are available and are not sold out to others. The busiest moving times are the first and last weekends of the month and during spring and summer school breaks. If you need to move during these periods, consider contracting services 30-45 days or more in advance. You might also be eligible for discounts because you are ordering ahead of time instead of having to pay a premium full price for truck rentals and other supplies at the last minute.
Use What You Have on Hand
One of the best money-saving tips for residential moving is to use what you have on hand to protect your furniture and other belongings. Blankets are great for wrapping around dressers, headboards, and end tables. Towels and clothing can be used inside the commercial moving crates to add cushioning to fragile items or be placed between framed photos and artwork. You can use a lot of things to protect your belongings that will work just as well – if not better – than wasteful plastic and paper packing materials. However, if you do have specialty items, such as a flat-screen TV or other high-value electronics, consider getting boxes that are created especially for these products from your local office supply store. They contain adjustable Styrofoam padding that can be used to ensure a snug fit. You might be able to wrap your TV with a blanket and move it in the backseat of your vehicle, but if you are loading a full-size truck to drive across town, you should invest in specialty packaging.
