Preparation, Flexibility and communication are key in keeping down the cost of your move. De-cluttering, packing, and disassembling furniture in advance can cut down on the overall moving time, therefore, cutting down costs. Peak days, such as weekends, summer months and the beginning and end of the month, may have slightly higher rates. Flexibility in your moving date can allow you to reduce the cost of your move by avoiding these peak day rates. Don’t forget, your moving consultant is a highly trained and valuable asset in lowering the cost of your move. Make sure to communicate all of your concerns honestly and openly so that they can help you get the best rate possible for you move.
