How can I keep costs down when I move?
Remember that moving is not an exact science, and each move is different. But, a good way to keep costs down is to be as prepared as possible for when the movers arrive to cut down on using any unnecessary time. Moving boxes is one of the most time-consuming areas of a move, yet they are some of the lightest things to move.
So, try to use the same size boxes and be sure they are taped up and labeled correctly for the movers. Stack them up, so the movers can just place them on the dolly and go. Also, while the movers will be happy to do so, the disassembly of furniture takes up time as well. You can try to disassemble any beds, desks, etc., to reduce
time. In short, anything that you can do yourself or anything that can help the movers move faster will cut down on your cost.
