From getting free moving quotes to selling old possessions, there are plenty of ways to save an extra buck or two during your big move
One of the biggest worries people have with moving is the cost. Moving an entire houses worth of possessions can cost quite a bit of money, not to mention the stress of actually moving things and leaving behind a familiar location. We here at Matheson feel your pain and so offer this guide on how to save money during your move. Follow these tips and you may actually make some money while moving!
Plan the move on a weekday
In general, weekends are the busiest moving times and moving companies tend to charge higher rates during times of high demand. That is why planning your move on a random weekday can save you a nice chunk of change in the long run. The best option is probably Monday or Tuesday, so if you can swing it, try to plan your move for one of these low traffic days.
Sell old things on the internet
A great feature of the internet is that there is no shortage of people who want to buy your old things. Apps and sites like Facebook Marketplace and Carousel offer an extremely easy way to post listings and directly connect with potential buyers. If you play your cards right, you may actually be able to come out in the green on your move from selling old possessions.
Plan meals in advance
During a big move, many people find themselves eating out a lot as their new residence is normally not completely set up yet. Instead of eating out, try to plan meals in advance. The week of the move, try to prepare several meal-portions and subsist on those while you are moving. While it may not be too exciting for your tongue, your wallet will appreciate it.
