“I’ve been looking for a job for over a year,” Stasi said. “I’m thrilled to finally find something actually in my field. The fact I’ve got to move practically across the country? That’s not quite as awesome.” A frown crossed her face. “In fact, I’m not sure how I’m going to afford it at all.”
Moving a small household a long distance doesn’t have to be expensive. That’s good news for anyone on a budget. The trick is to be strategic about what you’re going to move, how you’re going to move it, and who you’re going to hire to handle the actual move.
What are you going to move? Moves are a time of transition. You are starting a new chapter in your life, in a new locale. Consider your possessions. Do you really want to bring all of this stuff along for the ride? It’s okay to be selective, and consider the cost effectiveness of buying replacement items in your new destination rather than to pay to have your stuff moved. In other words, it’s worth the money to pay the pros to move antique furniture – but the beat up coffee table you rescued from a yard sale? Maybe not so much.
Choosing a Eastern MA moving company that specializes in small moves means you pay only for the items you’re actually moving – not empty truck space you don’t need and can’t fill. If you have to move artwork or move your large television, gaming systems, computers or other electronics, it’s a good idea to have your Eastern MA company pack these items for shipment. Custom crating and the use of the best packing materials – including foam in place technology – protects your most precious possessions, preventing breakage and damage.
The final money saving tip is to make sure to insure your shipment. Your Eastern MA moving company will discuss your coverage options with you. You can gain a lot of peace of mind for a minimal cost!
