Attention students, singles, and small families on the go: there is a way to manage your small move on a budget. That’s great news, because let’s face it: moving is expensive. If you’re headed to a new apartment, you’ve just shelled out for a security deposit and first month’s rent. Going to college? You’ll spend more money than you think possible on books and things you need for your dorm room. Every dollar matters – which is why you want to be smart about your small move.
What is a small move?
We all have stuff. Furniture, clothes, dishes, Great-Grandma’s antique trunk, a collection of vintage vinyl: these are the things that fill our homes and our lives. But we don’t all have the same amount of stuff! Smaller households generally have less furniture, appliances, clothing, electronics and antiques than larger households. But if you call a major van line, you’ll soon discover that they have minimal load size requirements. If you don’t have enough stuff to fill up the space – you pay for that space ANYWAY.
Nothing like paying cold hard cash to transport nothing but air from your old house to your new house! What a frustrating – and expensive! – experience.
The best Boston moving company has no minimum load size requirement. You pay only for what you move. That’s an immediate way to save money on your move! When you’re interviewing moving companies, ask about minimum load size. You don’t want to spend more money than you have to!
Forget about fly-by-night moving companies or recruiting your buddies to help you move. It sounds like a great idea – until one of your friends slips and drops your flat screen TV on the pavement! That can wreck a friendship – and if it doesn’t, the fact that your friend wrenched his back in the process and now blames you for it certainly will!
