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.
Reduce the amount of items you bring with you.
It may seem obvious, but the more you bring with you, the more you will have to pay; thus, moving house is an excellent opportunity to de-clutter your life.
Try to get rid of anything you haven’t used in a while, especially large pieces of furniture that won’t fit in your new place.
You can request free collection of good condition items from Salvos, or your local council may remove your furniture, mattresses, and whitegoods for free.
Hire packers and movers early in the week.
Saving money on packers and movers can make them a more affordable option.
Try to book your move earlier in the week because the weekend tends to be more expensive due to people scrambling to get their move completed before returning to work on Monday.
Move during off-peak hours.
It might also be a good idea to consider the time of year you intend to relocate.
Packers and movers are generally in higher demand during school holidays and during the warmer months of the year. If you want to save money, try to avoid these times.
There is no reason why moving should be expensive. With proper planning and effort on your part, you can save a significant amount of money on the move and begin your life in your new home with some peace of mind.
