How to save on moving costs


1.  Declutter your home in advance

Moving is a great opportunity to prioritize your belongings – not only for fans of a minimalistic lifestyle! If you are looking for tips on how to save money on moving costs, decluttering your home even has a double impact on your finances:

  1. Less items to move reduces the costs of moving them.
  2. If you sell your superflouus or outdated items, it puts money back into your moving budget!

To read more about the benefits and how-tos of decluttering your home before a move, have a look at some of our earlier blog posts:

2.  Find out if you can deduct your expenses

Are you moving for work?  If you are, moving expenses are deductible. They can make a considerable difference in your tax return at the end of the year.  Keep track of expenses such as supplies, mileage, and services.

3.  Ask questions

Find out whether there is off-season pricing if your moving date is flexible.  Ask about every service, and get estimates for multiple levels of service.  Don’t be afraid to ask questions.  

4.  Consider going for the full service

Choosing a full service package with your moving company might save you monay, because many moving companies offer incentives for such cases. For example, at Brothers EZ Moving, you receive a fifty percent discount on supplies when you use our full packing service.

However, if you’d rather invest more time and energy of your own, you can find a few tips here on the moving supplies you probably need.

5.  Remember that your time is money, too

This goes in the direction of “How to save money on moving costs”… plus other savings.

Moving takes time, especially if you’re not experienced and/or lack the proper equipment.  You should take into account all of the costs of moving on your own versus using professionals.  Make sure you factor in time missed from work, gas, transportation, and supplies. (And yes, if you think about asking your friends for their help when moving, consider the fact that at some point the same might be expected from you.) 

As stated before, it is important that you make an informed decision. Therefore, contact Brothers EZ Moving today for a free estimate of your moving costs!

Adan and Fil were efficient and handled items with care. I would use them again.
These guys were great. Very polite and professional. Hard workers and the move went well with no damages!And Gary is very patient with me as I had difficulties trying to get him paid through Zelle and had to get a business check but he was very patient and we got it all figured out. I would recommend this company for local moves.
Highly recommend this company. From estimate to final move, we received the best service from the office staff who explained and answered all our questions and the 2 young men who moved us taking all precautions with our items. Thank you for your transparency and professionalism.
