Moving on a budget is not impossible, but it requires a great deal of planning and preparation. Here are some tips you can follow:

 

1. Pick your date well

The beauty of browsing for homes in http://www.LakelandFloridaLiving.com early is that while you wait for your home to get sold, you can already choose your new home and plan your own move with lots of time in your hands. So while you still have plenty of time in your hands, make it a point to block a date in your calendar where you would most likely be moving. Use this date when you communicate and talk with moving companies. Reserve early so you get ahead of others especially during peak time for moving in months of May to September. Also avoid the first and last day of the month and holidays as much as possible.

 

2. Get different estimates

Don’t make the mistake of settling on the first moving company in your phonebook. Research and get estimates from different moving experts and carefully compare them. Requesting for on-site estimation is often more reliable and preferable. While you are at it, remember to ask about possible extra charges so you can be ready if ever. Moreover, don’t just base your decision on which offer is the cheapest. Review the details of the offer, especially the services included.

 

3. Don’t bring everything

5. Scout for free supplies

When moving, you need not buy everything. For instance, since cleaning will certainly be a part of your to dos, you can resort to homemade cleaning materials. Items from your kitchen like lemon, baking soda, and vinegar can do magic. Additionally, packing materials like boxes can be acquired from grocery stores and supermarkets in your area. But be sure to examine the durability of these potentially free packing supplies.

 

6. Consider doing things on your own

It is possible to move without contacting moving or packing companies, or not to assign everything to them. If you can start really early in cleaning up your home and packing, you would be needing less help. If ever you are pressed for time, you can seek the help of friends or family who are willing to lend a helping hand.
