Summertime and the living is easy!
Moving season is officially here. For many of our new residents, summer is one of the most popular times to move. Whether you’re moving across the world, the country, or just down the street, these are some time- and cost-saving tips to help make your move as smooth and simple as possible.
1. Start Early
It’s no secret that summer is the most expensive time to move into a new space. Between home buying peaks and leases beginning and ending, moving can feel daunting. By getting an early start on the day, not only will you be able to avoid working in the summer heat, but it will help increase productivity and allow for time to rest at the end of the day.
2. Hire a Moving Company
Whether you want to move yourself or hire professionals, movers are a great support to the moving process. While moving yourself will likely save money, professional movers help save time and energy, allowing you to enjoy your new home with fewer obstacles. Prior to hiring movers, be sure to get quotes from multiple moving companies as this allows for you to get the best deal and save money along the way.
3. Schedule Donations for Pick-Up
If you’re looking to donate some of your current belongings, donation pick-up services can be a helpful tool. Many companies and local charities that accept donations offer free pick-up services, including Habitat for Humanity, Goodwill, and Salvation Army. Local charities may have free pick-up options as well. Save money, time and gas by allowing them to come to you!
4. Personally Pack Your Prized Possessions
Whether it’s your favorite dinner plates or an original piece of art, personally packing your most prized possessions is often the best way to ensure everything receives the special care it needs. This is also helpful as it allows for you to keep track of what is in each box.
5. Keep it Cool with Lots of Water
While moving into your new home is exciting, moving in the heat of the summer can also be strenuous on your body. Be sure to drink plenty of water and hydrate throughout the day, so you can be happy and healthy in your new space!
