How should I budget for my upcoming move?



Is that your question today? If so, allow me to provide you with a few tips to help you adequately plan for your upcoming move. First, I recommend a short brainstorming session of anticipated moving costs.These costs should encompass all cost prior, during and after your move. Prior to your move you may encounter expenses for packing and possible carpet cleaning if renting and attempting to retain your deposit.

If hiring a moving company your moving cost will depend on the following:
  • Size of move
  • Weight of your move
  • Distance from origin to destination
  • Time of your move
  • Packing

All of the above vary from move to move. If your move is local, your move size will determine the number of men for your moving crew. Most professional moving companies associate an hourly moving rate based upon the number of rooms that need to be moved. If your move is a long distance move, weight and mileage will then be a part of the equation for your moving cost.

Generally the time of your move can increase or decrease your moving cost. Typically peak season for most moving companies is summer and end of the month. Staying away from this time frame can aid you in decreasing your overall moving expense. Lastly, quilt-pad wrapping is usually included with most reputable moving companies, but packing of your clothes, and other household items cost are not. An in-home estimator is available to derive total cost for packing and unpacking.
Other costs you may want to consider:

If hiring a moving company your moving cost will depend on the following:
  • Tip for movers
  • Travel costs if moving long distance(e.g., hotel, rental car)
  • Hotel cost if home is not ready and you need to be out of previous home
  • Utilities deposits

Tabulate all of the above and remember to add a little something extra for the unexpected. Good Moving to Ya!
