The residential moving and commercial moving experts at Noah’s Ark Moving understand all the variable issues that can increase or diminish the price of a move – and many of these factors can actually be controlled by customers themselves! Here’s a brief guide to the most important moving cost saving tips as prepared by the moving technicians at Noah’s Ark Moving.

 

Portable Moving Containers

Rent out a portable moving container that allows you to keep all of your belongings on the site of your new home or commercial location. This lets you take your time unpacking as you settle into your new property – and if you’re not looking forward to packing the moving container, this is what expert movers are for – they can expertly assemble your belongings in the container in the order of what you will need to unpack and retrieve first, and what you want to leave in it for a bit of time.

 

Moving Truck Rental

Rent your own moving truck and simply have movers pack or unpack it. This saves you money on the transportation costs, and allows you to budget using a fixed price for the rental of the truck as well as insurance. This combination utilizes both a DIY and a moving company assisted approach to maximize your savings.

 

Freight Trailers

Freight companies offer the service of dropping a trailer off at your new location for a few days; simply load it according to their stipulations (certain weight balances as well as secure balancing) and they will pick it up and bring it across the country. Depending on your location, this may be a safer/more budget friendly way to haul out expensive, heavy, or fragile equipment – but make sure to get a flat rate estimate from a moving company so that you can compare the price rate.

 

Shipping

Some online shipping providers can bid a price for shipping your belongings once you have provided them with information regarding what exactly will be shipped in how many boxes. If you have the time to wait until shipping companies provide you their price rate bids, as well as potentially bundling your shipment, this can give you a price advantage if you’re not shipping much heavy belongings like furniture.

 

Book the Move on a Non Peak Moving Day

Don’t move on a time many other people are moving – like the day college students move back to school, as the cost will be hire for moving service. Hire a full service moving company on a weekday known for its cheap moving rates, otherwise known as an off-time. It’s easy, and can really save you money – not to mention time, as traffic is often less during these times anyway.
