3 Cost-Saving Tips to Cut Down on Your Moving Budget


Moving is stressful. It is a hassle that many people avoid thinking about until the last minute. Many people ignore crucial details and cost-saving tips because the thought of packing is just too much to handle. Does this sound familiar? 

We know there are thousands of things you would rather be doing than thinking about how to pack the antique bedframe your grandma gave you. As a premier moving company in Melbourne, Florida, A Mother’s Touch Movers can take the stress off of your Brevard County move by creating a fully customized moving plan to suit your needs and your budget. Moving does not have to break the bank or your back.

The cost of a moving service may be a roadblock for you. However, before you decide you cannot afford professional assistance, contact our office. We think you will be surprised. Regardless of whether or not you hire help, there are cost-saving measures you can take right now to cut down on your moving budget. We love giving free advice and think these are tips you are going to want to remember.

Cost-Saving Tip #1: Get Rid of Your Junk

There are a plethora of ways to downsize and remove the stuff you do not want to move. Are you tired of that old end table? Give it to someone who loves a DIY project. Do you still need your wardrobe from high school? If not, why not donate the items to a second-hand store.

Moving is a great time to take inventory and shed the items no longer serving you. Tossing, donating, or recycling things you do not use or need is okay. Lighten your load before your move and save some time and money along the way too.

Cost-Saving Tip #2: Clean Up

If you are leaving a rental property, the only way to ensure you get your security deposit back is to leave the place in a better condition than you found it. Now is the time to dig up your lease agreement and make sure the home is squeaky clean. 

Depending on the rental in question, you can expect to pay up to twice the amount of your monthly rent to cover your security deposit. That is a lot of money, and you do not want to lose the cash by leaving your place in rough condition.

Cost-Saving Tip #3: Recycle Packing Boxes

This step requires some forethought on your end. Rather than buying new boxes, stash your old ones for use in the future. If you did not save the packing boxes from your last move, there is always someone who has a few. Check online marketplaces and big box stores, or ask friends who just moved. You never know what you will find.
