How To Save Money On Your Next Move

How To Save Money On Your Next Move

Pune is one of the most expensive cities in India, so we’re all looking for ways to save money. Moving can be very expensive if you are not well prepared. Moving, on the other hand, does not have to be expensive if you plan ahead of time.

Here are some quick tips to help you save money on your move.

Shivam Packers and Movers Can Assist You

Prepare yourself before the packers and movers arrive.

The more time a packers and movers company spends loading items onto a truck or waiting for you to finish packing that last box, the more you will have to pay at the end of the day.

Have everything packed before they arrive, and if possible, stage as many items as possible in an easily accessible area so that the packers and movers can come in and out efficiently.

Attempt a hybrid move.

You may not require the services of packers and movers to move everything for you. If you have a car, try loading it with some of the smaller boxes or furniture that don’t require a truck.

You can also use a car or van rental app to rent a vehicle for the day and use it to transport all the easily portable boxes to your new home, leaving only the large pieces of furniture to the professionals.

Pack your items with reusable materials.

Keep a paper file, a digital file, a cloud file, or both! It’s a good idea to make a list of the things you’re taking with you when you move. Try to keep track of these things “per room.”

Also, you’ll want to make sure you have all the paperwork you need from your child’s school(s), the right doctors, etc.

1-2 Months Before You Move

Prepare Your Valuables: Make sure your valuables have their own box or boxes, and make a moving estimate with how much you think each valuable will cost. Keep this for your records.

Set-Up Change of Address: Tell the post office that you want to move.

You should also do this with your bank, credit card companies, and any other companies that bill you.
