How to Cut Costs on a Move

Posted on June 5, 2014

movingYour search for the perfect piece of Northwest Florida real estate is over. Now that you have the keys, the fun part begins. It is time to pack up the family and all of your belongings and make the trek to the newest destination.

These days, whether you are moving in-state, across the country or to a different home in the same town, you can expect to spend anywhere from $2,000 to over $5,000. Try to avoid sticker shock, because there is some price variation and for that matter, a variety of ways to save.

One of the best ways to save on a move involves early preparation. Schedule movers ahead of time. Not only will this allow you to compare costs of different companies, but will help guarantee that you get the dates that you want. It can also be beneficial to ask what factors could increase the original estimate and by how much. You would be surprised to find that time spent packing, sharp corners and stairs can add to the total cost.
