6 Things I Should Know Before Moving (Part 1)
Moving is a complicated process that can be difficult to navigate if you don’t know what you’re getting into. The expert movers at Affordable Quality Moving & Storage shared 6 things you should know before moving. Being informed of these important steps will help you reduce stress and challenges when you move.
1. Save Money When Moving is Your Top Priority
According to the American Moving and Storage Association (AMSA), the average cost of an interstate move is a few thousand dollars. During this time, it is a good idea to save money when moving between two homes. There are often hidden costs that arise during a move, and it is good to have money on the side to cover unexpected expenses. Keeping a close eye on your spending will help you become stress-free and financially feasible.
2. Decluttering Your Home Before Moving Saves You Money
We highly recommend decluttering your home before you begin packing. Failing to declutter your home will be a costly mistake because it will cost you more money to move items you no longer need or want. One of the things we recommend you to do is go through your belongings and make piles of items you want to throw out or donate. This may include items in your storage unit, old kitchenware, or things you plan on repurchasing for your new home.
The main reasons to get rid of unwanted items include:
- Transporting Costs: The more items you pack the higher shipment weight you will have. This will result in higher transportation fees.
- Packing Time: You’ll be able to pack your things much faster when there are fewer items to pack.
- Storage Space: You will have more storage space in your new home.
3. Moving Checklist is a Life Saver
Organizing your time is the key to having a successful move from start to finish. A great way to organize your time and your moving tasks is by following a moving checklist. An excellent moving checklist will not only list the essential things you need to do for your move, but it will also remind you of tasks you are likely to forget. The team at the Affordable Quality Moving & Storage created the ultimate moving list that will make your moving process an easy one.
