What to Include When Creating a Moving Budget

Moving can be a stressful experience for many different reasons. Depending on how far you’re moving, the logistics alone can strain your finances. The more substantial items you have, the more quickly these expenses add up. A budget can help you plan and prepare, but only if all aspects of the move are considered. Here are some of the most essential expenses to include in your moving budget.

 

1. Moving Company

Hiring a moving company will prevent you from having to move large items yourself, but these services come at a cost. The company’s main fee will include labor and fuel charges. Calling around for quotes will give you a better idea of what to expect. Regardless of which company you intend to use, your budget should revolve around the highest quote.

 

If you need help preparing appliances for the move, this will cost extra. Accessories, flights, long hauls, and expedited service will all involve extra charges. Moving insurance is also an extra expense, but worth considering if you have valuables. In most cases, you’ll have to get this separately.

 

2. Truck Rental

If you decide to move yourself instead, you’ll most likely need a moving van. The rates will depend on how big a vehicle you’ll require and whether or not you’ll be returning it to the same location. Be sure to ask what kind of fuel mileage you can expect from the vehicle, so you’ll be able to calculate this expense.

 

Regarding extras, the rental company will first offer you additional insurance. Contact your credit card company first to see if their service already includes it. Use of a loading ramp, dolly, and covers for your furniture are considered extra equipment rentals.

 

Don’t forget to add in a little extra for incidentals. The price of gas can rise with little warning, quickly throwing off your numbers. You might also have to make some extra stops, so be sure to allow for that.

 

3. Travel Expenses

Chances are, you’ll be taking personal vehicles with you. Throw in the estimated fuel costs for each of them, as well as maintenance fees, if you need to prepare them for a long drive. If you’re going far, you should also allow for lodging. Travel websites usually have online tools you can use to check hotel rates and availability.

 

Keep in mind that every member of your household will have to eat at some point. Determine the average cost of a meal for each person. Don’t forget to include drinks and snacks for everyone.

 

4. Cleaning and Repair

Regardless of whether you’re leaving a house you owned or a rental, you’ll be expected to leave it in good condition. At the very least, this requires proper cleaning. Unless you have several days to spend on this task, hiring a cleaning company would be well worth the expense. They can get your home closer to its original condition than you probably could, in far less time.

 

If you own the home and are selling it, you’ll probably have to fix some things before leaving. Whether you do the work yourself or hire someone else, it will still cost some money. Avoid attempting to do anything that’s out of your league, or you might end up paying someone else to fix a bigger mess.

 

5. Packing and Storage

Unless you have a ton of boxes laying around, you’ll need packing supplies. Determine how many boxes you will need and make some room in the budget for things like bubble wrap, labels, and tape. Mattress covers are sometimes provided by moving companies, provided you are using one.

 

If you intend to put some things in storage, you’ll have to factor storage fees into the budget, call around for some quotes. You might want to include extra insurance if some of the items are valuables. Don’t forget to include the cost of moving them to the storage facility.

 

While moving can be a pain, it’s something everyone does at some point. The best way to make it easier for your family is to prepare ahead of time. Taking the expenses above into consideration allows you to make a more realistic moving budget so that you won’t get caught by surprise on the day of your move.

Packing for a Move: 7 Tips to Pack Fast and Move Faster

How you pack your stuff will have the most significant impact on how fast you can move houses. Sadly, while every other industry has been advancing, from healthcare to product shipping, the art and science of moving remains unmoved and, quite frankly, primitive. Fortunately, decades of moving houses have given people ideas on how to make the process more efficient. Here are seven of the ways our moving crews strive to make moving more efficient:

 

 

1. Start Early

Start packing days, if not weeks, in advance. Begin with packing items that you don’t have any immediate use of, such as family heirlooms, photo albums and framed pictures, trinkets, etc. These are items that, if packed in a box early, won’t affect your day-to-day living. You should also start disassembling furniture pieces including coffee tables, chairs, and desks.

 

2. Organize

Pack strategically by marking the boxes with a symbol or number that denotes their importance. Keep the items you’ll need immediately when you move to your new home close to you. Day one items include towels, toiletries, casual and work clothes, curtains, and mattress covers. Store them in a suitcase or hamper for convenient access.

 

3. Have a Packing Station

It’s difficult to pack fast if the items you need packing are scattered across the house. Designate a packing station, which can be a simple corner space or a small unused room in your home. Once you’ve designated your packing station, all materials and supplies related to your move should be stored here, including boxes, tape, and bubble wrap.

 

4. Let Go of Junk

Every house has some amount of junk, such as obsolete paper documents, VHS tapes, broken furniture and electronic gadgets, and other random stuff, that owners no longer need. Let go of your junk by either throwing it out, donating it, or selling it on eBay or through a garage sale.

 

5. Measure the Cargo Space You’ll Need

Will a van suffice, or do you need a full-size 26-foot truck to haul out all your possessions? Measure the height and length of all the boxes when they are stacked up to one another. It makes more sense to get one big truck that can transport all your possessions in one trip than to get a cheaper smaller vehicle that will take two to three trips, especially if it’s a long distance between point A and point B. Alternatively, hire a moving company to figure it out for you!

 

6. Get More Helping Hands

Packing is, for the most part, physical work. There’s no learning curve to it, and someone can easily jump into the activity. Ask for help from friends, coworkers, neighbors, or anyone else that come to mind. To repay these kind volunteers for donating their time and energy to helping you pack, buy them lunch or dinner.

 

7. Use a Pallet Jack

The challenging part of moving is loading and unloading your packed boxes from the house to the truck. Despite this relatively short distance between the door and the vehicle, it can feel like a mile as you try to haul out 50-lb boxes and furniture pieces. If you aren’t hiring movers, invest in a pallet jack rental to do the lifting for you.

 

As you may have noticed, most of the tips rely on allotting enough time before your actual moving date. The more time you have to spare, the easier it will be to move since you can pack boxes gradually without even noticing the workload.
