Usually, hiring moving companies services make your moving experience an expensive one. And it even gets more expensive when you are unable to pack properly for it takes longer time for movers to load your belongings to the truck.

Actually, there are a lot of things you can do to make moving house easier and cheaper. Here are some helpful tips on how to do it:

  • Why not move yourself? Borrow or rent a truck, and ask your friends to help you.

  • Find a binding quote from moving companies. With a binding quote, you will know how much you will pay for what. Unlike in an unbinding quote, the service is priced per hour but you will never know how many hours it will take them to finish the job.

  • Be organized. Make sure all your stuff are boxed and well labeled so moving will take you less time. If you are to hire a moving company, less time means less money to spend.

  • Get free boxes. A lot of people give away their used moving boxes for free. You can spot them in the Internet. Also, you can ask from markets if they can spare you some extra boxes.

  • You might also want to lease a moving container and just fill it up yourself. You can have a truck move it to your new place where you will just unload it.

And here are some additional tips for packing:

  • Have all your moving packing materials on hand: boxes (preferably smaller ones for they are easier to stack), sticky paper tape (since you can tear it with your hands), newspapers, and labels.

  • If you hire professional movers, provide them lunch and give them tip after they get their job done.

  • Leave the items you will not need anymore.

  • Label boxes with what room those items are going to.

Now, moving home is made cheaper and better.
