Money saving tips for moving in Vancouver
Vancouver movers aren’t necessarily cheap, but there are always ways you can save money if you want to do it on a budget. That doesn’t even have to mean compromising on a professional moving company. That’s right – you can still use the movers in Vancouver at Rainforest Moving and Storage inc., even if you are on a tight budget, as we offer the best value possible to our customers.
We’ve put together a list of money saving moving tips, so that you can make the move without breaking the bank.
This can’t be stressed enough when it comes to moving. Not only will this keep your budget low, as a money saving moving tip, but it will also keep the stress levels down too. Know exactly what you want to move, so you can utilize the space in the truck effectively. If you want to get rid of something then try and do it before the move, otherwise it will take up space in the truck that could have been used for something else and you will have to do multiple runs. Selling items before you move is also a great way to make some extra cash to put toward the move! Having everything organized is a money saving moving tip because it means that you will only have to do a minimal number of runs, hopefully just the one, and will not waste your movers’ time (and your money) deciding what to bring and what to leave on the day.
Pack Your Belongings
The second of our money saving moving tips are to do your own packing. We can, of course, provide expert, professional packing services, but if you would like to save a bit of money you can do this yourself. If you know a long time in advance that you will be moving, you can start packing boxes with items that you will not need for a while. Be sure to have things like bubble wrap for fragile items, such as ornaments. If you need to buy supplies, your moving company can provide them to you.
Move in the Middle of the Month
Most places in Vancouver don’t let you move in until the first of the month, making the last week a busy time for movers. Many offer lower rates if you can move in the middle of the month, so if you could try to arrange this with your new and current landlords, or set a possession date for your newly purchased home that is mid month, you might end up saving some money.
