During a move, it’s only natural to want to save as much money as you can throughout the process. After all, relocation can get expensive—especially if you’re purchasing a new home, buying new furniture, and many other added expenses that come along with moving away. Luckily, there are a few tips and tricks to help you save some money during relocation. 

If your budget allows it, one of the easiest ways to save money, time, and energy is by hiring a professional moving company like First Class Moving and Storage. Our team of trusted Florida movers knows what to do to properly plan a cost-effective, stress-free moving process. If you’re searching for ways to make your next move affordable, take a look at these tips from our Miami/Sunrise and Tampa Moving Company and start saving money on your upcoming relocation now.

Ask for Multiple Quotes

One of the easiest ways to save money on your next move is to get multiple quotes. When evaluating the pricing estimates you receive, make sure to determine the value you’re getting out of each moving plan and quote. The lowest quote may not be the best value, or include as many specialized services or custom solutions for making your plan easier.

Customize Your Moving Services to Suit Your Budget

Along those same lines, make sure that the moving company you’re using is including only the services you need when determining the cost of your moving plan. If you don’t want full-service packing, you shouldn’t have to pay for that option. At the same time, full-service packing might save you money if you’re having to take time off of work to pack yourself, so be sure not to exclude that helpful service completely. 

Hold a Packing Party

If you do have the time and packing yourself will save you money, this is clearly an option that will help to reduce your packing budget. Start early and begin gathering packing materials to avoid rushing to buy expensive boxes and packing paper at the last minute. Another great way to save time and money on packing is by holding a packing party. Provide pizza, snacks, and drinks to your friends and family and invite them over to help. A packing party can turn into a great deal of fun—and can help you to save a lot of time packing everything on your own. 

Move During the Off-Season

The peak time for moving starts in the middle of May and ends over the Labor Day weekend in September. Other popular moving dates are scattered throughout the year, usually on weekends, and there can be a big price difference in rates from one weekend to the next. Try to plan your move in advance, and avoid moving over the summer or three-day weekends. Ask your moving team to recommend dates that might be less expensive than others and try to plan your project around those days.
