How can I keep costs down during my move?
Keep in mind that moving is both a science and an art, and each move is different. The best way to keep costs down is to be as prepared as possible for when the movers arrive, which will reduce or eliminate unexpected/unnecessary time. Moving boxes is one of the most time-consuming areas of a move, yet are some of the lightest things to move.
Another time saver, if we are not packing for you, is for you to use the same size boxes and be sure they are taped closed and labeled correctly for the movers. Stack them up, so the movers can just place them on the dolly and go. Also, while the movers will be happy to do so, the disassembly of furniture takes up time as well. You can try to disassemble any beds, desks, etc. to cut down on time. In short, anything that you can do yourself or anything that can help the movers move faster will cut down on your cost.
