5 tips for saving money on your House move in 2023
Updated: Jan 14
A house move is always going to be an expensive venture, but there are ways that you can reduce the costs and save yourself a lot of money. To help you with this process, I have outlined 5 simple tips below which will help you reduce your costs on your house move in 2023.
1. SAVE ON COST OF PACKING MATERIALS
It can be helpful to start saving used boxes in advance of your move. You can also watch for relevant websites where other people are trying to get rid of their packing supplies after a relocation. By doing so, you're able to save money by not buying new supplies and only buying the materials you don't have access to for free.
2. GET INSURANCE COVER
When choosing a removal firm, make sure you ask about insurance cover for your belongings during the move. Be clear about what is and is not covered, and what the limit is on their cover. Also , ensure that you have your content insurance on until you leave your current property and be sure to activate it once you move into your new place.
3. SELL ITEMS THAT YOU NO LONGER NEED TO BRING TO YOUR NEW HOME
Unwanted items can increase the cost of your Removals, because they take up unnecessary space and time. You may be able to sell them for some extra cash if you put them up for sale. This can count towards saving money towards your moving cost. Offering an attractive discount on your old items will help you to sell them at a competitive price. Failing to plan this out in advance means that you may end up having to pay extra to your Removals company if they have to recycle them for you last minute.
4. AVOID TRAVELLING DURING RUSH HOUR
If you live in London, you probably know about the traffic jams during rush hour. Moving out of the city during non-rush hour times might help you save on your moving expenses.
5. GET YOUR BELONGINGS ORGANISED AND SORTED OUT
When you're packing up to move, it's tempting to just shove everything in a box and sort through it when you get where you're going. But it's best to sort through your belongings while you're still in the old place. This helps you to discard unwanted items and to have less things to move. The shorter time your move takes in most cases , the cheaper your moving costs might be.
