Oahu Movers Share 5 Simple Steps to Save Cash During Your Move , Ewa, Hawaii

Moving can be expensive and stressful, but there are ways to make the process a lot easier, especially on your bank account. The movers at M. Dyer & Sons in Pearl City, Hawaii, share five simple ways to cut costs and save some money during your next move.

How To Save Money While Moving

Movers1. Reduce Your Load 

Before you start packing anything, look through your belongings and decide if you really need all of it. Donate anything you don’t need or want, or have a garage sale before the big move to unload some items and make a little side cash. Most donations are even tax deductible—just ask the donation center for a receipt.

2. Reuse Items Instead Of Buying Packing Material

Instead of using packing peanuts and bubblewrap, use newspapers and magazines to pad your belongings. Just be careful that the items you wrap aren’t susceptible to ink stains! You can also use old socks to cushion and hold breakable, smaller items. If you have the original packaging for televisions and other electronics, repack them in their own materials for safe transportation.

3. Choose A Low-Traffic Moving Time

Consider moving during seasons that aren’t very popular, like during the winter, or pick a day during the week that isn’t a prime moving time. Try to move midweek and during the middle of the month instead of during the first weekend. Less-popular dates and times may fetch lower rates with local movers.  

Movers4. Sell Your Boxes

When your move is complete, sell your moving boxes. There are many places and websites that will buy lightly used boxes after a move. This will help make some of your money back and will reduce the amount of boxes you need to dispose of.

5. Plan For New Utility Services & Insurance Coverage

For your new location, save money with digital service bundles that include phone, internet, and cable service. Make sure shut-down and turn-on dates are carefully planned so you don’t pay for service in a place you don’t live. For insurance, see if current policies transfer to the new place to avoid paying higher rates.
