Ways To Save Money When Moving Home

Sat 05 Nov 2022

Are you thinking of moving home? Whether you're upsizing, downsizing, or just looking for a change of scenery, it can be a costly exercise. Here are a few ways to save money when making the big move.

Get rid of unwanted items

One of the best ways to save money when moving house is to get rid of any unwanted items that you no longer need or use. Having a garage sale or selling items online can help to raise some extra cash, which can be used towards the cost of your move. Additionally, getting rid of unwanted items will also help to reduce the amount of stuff that you have to move, which can save you money on transportation costs.

Compare quotes from different removalists

Another way to save money when moving house is to compare quotes from different removalists. Getting multiple quotes can help to ensure that you are getting the best price for your move. Additionally, it is important to check what is included in the quote, as some removalists may charge extra for additional services such as packing and unpacking.

Do it yourself

If you are able to do so, another great way to save money when moving house is to do it yourself. This means hiring a van or trailer and doing all of the packing and unpacking yourself. While this option may not be suitable for everyone, it can definitely help to save a lot of money.

Move during the off-peak season

If you have some flexibility with when you move, another tip is to try and do so during the off-peak season. This is typically between April and September, when demand for removalists is lower. Moving during this time can help to save you money on removalist costs as well as on accommodation costs if you need to stay in temporary accommodation while your new home is being prepared.

Vlatka Lake at storage experts, Space Station said; “Typically, there are periods throughout the year that are quieter for property sales than others, so if you are looking to buy, try doing so in these lulls. Christmas and school holidays tend to attract a less competitive market, meaning that you may be able to secure a property at a lower price.”

Use recycled materials for packing

Finally, another great way to save money when moving house is to use recycled materials for packing. This includes using old boxes from stores or friends, as well as using old newspapers or towels for padding. Using recycled materials can help to reduce your overall packing costs, making your move more affordable.

"I would just like to thank you are your team for the professional services regarding the management of the property over the last 6 years. Over that time I never had to be involved in any issues regarding the property and utilities companies. There was never any issues during this period and all three of your tenants were superb and never a problem. You were always available to talk to or if we left a message you would return the calls in good time. When there were some minor hic ups regarding minor problems ( dripping taps etc) these were handled without me having to get involved and never any complaints from the tenants, and you handling the charges after agreeing a price with me. Rents were always transferred across on time and invoices sent to me on the internet. The services offered were equally professional to other companies I have looked at but at a far better price, I would urge people to use your company. When I decided to sell the property you offered an equally superb service for the sale and once again at a superb competitive package. The sale was handled without any issues and any queries were quickly answered or resolved. Your punch line of “Always Doing More” (ADM) is totally true and I could not have asked from any more both in the rental management and sale of the property. Please pass on my sincere thanks to all your team and a huge personal thanks to you Alethea. I do not believe there is a local company who is able to match or come close to the professional services offered. I wish you all the success you deserve."
