People around the world were moving from one place to another. No one was staying.”- Jonathan Safran Foer, Extremely Loud and Incredibly Close

Are you moving to a new home or office? If so, do you need to move your household or office contents from your old location to your new location? It is a fact of life that people have to relocate to new environments; albeit it is a new home or office. Therefore, the question that begs is where do you find cheap and professional Interstate removalists to help you plan and execute a successful move?

 The cost of moving

There is no doubt that moving to a new home costs a lot of money, and takes up an enormous amount of time and effort. According to a guide published by the Home Purchase Advisory Service of Australia, the average cost of a move will average between $550 and $3500.  Needless to say, these figures depend largely on the distance you are moving, what you are moving, and whether you pack and move or hire professional removalists.

Therefore, it makes sense to look at ways to save money while moving your house. Ergo, here are four ways to cut costs when relocating to your home or office.

Prepare a detailed budget

To make sure that you keep on top of your moving costs and avoid scope creep or unexpected expenses, it’s important to create a detailed budget. One helpful tool to use when creating your budget is a checklist to save time and money. This checklist can include items such as decluttering before packing, researching moving companies for the best price, and packing efficiently to save space. By following a checklist and sticking to your budget, you can ensure that you don’t overspend on unnecessary items and keep your moving costs under control.

Hire packing boxes and pack yourself

You can cut down on your moving costs by hiring packing boxes instead of buying brand-new boxes. Furthermore, you can pack your belongings instead of contracting your removalists in Western suburbs to pack for you.

On the other hand, should you have fragile possessions or antiques that need to be professionally wrapped and packed, you can ask your removalists Castle Hill to pack for you.

Cut down on the number of movers that you hire

If you have a number of friends who can help you load your possessions into the truck, you can cut down on the number of movers to come out to help you load and unload your possessions.

Cut down on the household or office possessions that you move

Before your move, it’s essential to sort through all of your household or office items. You may be surprised at how much you can rehome or simply throw away. Keep in mind that every item you move will cost money. To keep your moving costs as low as possible, consider using a packing service and only pack the things that will fit into your new home or that will cost you less to move than to replace.

Final words

Relocating to a new home or office can be time-consuming, energy-sapping, as well as expensive. However, as Jonathan Safran Foer notes in the quotation mentioned at the beginning of this article, people are moving all of the time. Even though it is not a comfortable experience, moving is sometimes necessary.

About The Author

Bill Chen

Before 2008, Bill was working with a local removalist company in Sydney and was witness for a number of deformities and wrongs in the working of the company. Observing the atmosphere, a thought came to Bill’s mind that he could do much better if he were the owner of the company, by offering a fully transparent service to the clients with a friendly and trustworthy staff and no hidden fee structure; and thus, in 2008, AAA Bill Removalists Sydney was formed with just one truck and only Bill as staff. Even if Bill Chen began the company as just one man, the company grew fast. The operation expanded beyond the Sydney suburbs and to the surrounding cities: Wollongong, Wagga Wagga, Albury, Sunshine Coast, Gold Coast, Coffs Harbour, Canberra, Newcastle, Melbourne, Brisbane, and other.
