Tips on Saving Money on Home Moving

Tips on Saving Money on Home Moving

When it comes to moving your family with your household stuffs from one location to another because of your job change or transfer, it becomes a great deal getting the whole activity done without a hitch. You literally need to shift and settle down all over again each time you move.

Many times you may not get the same square feet of house at the new location. You need to dump a few stuffs in order to settle in your new home so that you don't feel like staying in a cloak room. You are either left with an option to sell some of your stuffs ( Oh! But I loved that sofa so much, I got it designed myself! I don't want to sell it!  ), or keep them safe somewhere till you find a new bigger home to stay. Well, storage services are designed for rescue you in such situations. You can easily pack and keep your bigger stuffs safe in these storage houses for some period of time. Nowadays you get packing, moving and storage services at amazing deals that offer guarantee jobs done.

In case you are wondering, here let me share with you some interesting details regarding the moving trends in the U.S. according to the US Bureau of Census:

  • More than 15% of the US population moves every year.
  • Around 6.7 million households moved in year 2010 and 34 million people moved in year 2007-2008.
  • Around 37% of Americans never moved out of their hometown, and 40% relocate due to job offer.
  • At present the annual migration rate in the US is 11.9%


So, the statistics show a good number of people moving from one location to other in the US, and if you are amongst them, then you can surely rest assured that there are great deals of packing, moving and storage services available at good prices. While checking for the best company to choose, always ensure that you check the latest deals and discounts (online or offline!) for the current season. It is best to consult someone from your family or friends, who has freshly made a move from one location to another to know the deals.

Also, make it a note that the prices may vary depending on the location, distance, season and even the time of the month/week, so you need to keep all these factors in mind and plan accordingly. Most of the times the companies charge you lower fees if you make a move on weekdays instead of weekends. Despite the price factor, you must also consider the code of conduct by the company people. If they are prompt in their replies and proactively discuss with you all the factors, then congratulations - you are in safe hands. If a company is charging less, but not providing prompt service or response to your queries, it is better to check for another one.

Even though there are lots of cost calculators available online, you need to strategically check the options on your own. If suppose the moving rates of one company are good, but their packing rates are too high, you can consider another company (that charges less!) to do the packing. However, ensure that the packing standards are up to the mark.

If you and your colleague are making a move at the same time, you can even collaborate together for the move and save a lot. Internet is a boon when it comes to checking real testimonials from people who have used the packing and moving services. So, always check out the online customer reviews of the company you want to consider before giving it a go.
