Moving home can set families back a lot of money, and that isn’t including the price of the new home, hiring a removals team or the conveyancing. There are a lot of small things that you don’t think about when moving, which end up costing a lot of money. So, to save you from losing out on a big lump of cash, we have come up with a list of tips to help.
Clear the clutter
Reducing the number of things to move can save you money in a lot of ways, not only does it cut down the number of boxes you need for packing, but it also reduces the amount of time that the removals need to work. Basically, the less items you have, the less money you will have to pay.
When you are getting ready to move, you will be amazed at how many cans and packets of food you will have stored away at the back of cupboards, drawers, the fridge and freezer. If you don’t eat up your frozen and chilled foods, you will have to throw them away to prevent them from going off and invest in more food.
Also, the less food you have means less things you need to pack, so eating up your food will mean fewer boxes, less waste and a surprising amount of money saved.
While you’re moving, be careful when leaving your current premises and entering your new one. You will be moving large objects, so be aware of your surroundings as you don’t want to break anything, mark any walls or damage any other kind of furnishings. An angry call from a buyer is one of the last things you want when settling in to your new home – the stress and cost of the process is bad enough without any other troubles, so be careful.
