Whether you are moving away for college, moving out of your parent’s home for the first time or if you are a newly married couple preparing to buy your first home, the chances are that you have set a strict budget for your upcoming move.

Your next move doesn’t have to cost an arm or a leg. There are many ways that you can cut costs and still achieve a successful move. This month, the moving professionals at Tucson Moving Service bring you some helpful tips to lessen the burden on your wallet during your next residential or commercial move.

Tip #1: Shop Around

While you may think that a D-I-Y move will save you money, hiring professionals is actually a better investment, once you factor in the liabilities and hidden costs of moving on your own.

Don’t be afraid to compare moving prices from different moving companies in your area. Set aside some time to do online research and make a list of reliable movers in your city. Be sure to ask each company for a written estimate!

Tip #2: Use Budget-Friendly Packing Materials

Safely packing your belongings doesn’t have to cost a small fortune. Ditch the bubble wrap and packing peanuts and consider using alternative (and eco-friendly!) packing materials like:

• Newspapers
• Magazines
• Old clothing and linens
• Plastic bags
• Shredded paper

Don’t be afraid to get creative! You will be surprised at how many packing materials you already have just laying around your house.

Tip #3: Throw a Moving Sale or Sell Online

A quick and convenient way to make some extra cash before your move is to sell some of your no-longer-needed items. Not only will this help you downsize and declutter your home before you start packing but it will give you some extra spending money to use when decorating your new place.

Moving sales and yard sales are always a great idea, or if you simply want to downsize, consider taking your unwanted items to your local thrift store or donation center. Alternatively, you may list your gently used goods on online marketplaces like eBay, Amazon, Craigslist and now Facebook.
