If you have just bought a new London home for you and your family, the last thing you want is to end up paying a ton of money on your home relocation. With increased expenses on preparing your new home and equipping it with everything necessary, it is worth it to consider in what ways you can pay less for the move.
There are some options, which you might not have considered at first. If you don’t own a removal or man and van company, chances that you are not familiar with the business are big. In that case you need to be careful what moving services you hire to help. You should look of the following tips, as they can save you a good amount of money:
Research multiple man and van companies – do not ever take the first and only offer you receive from a single company. Invest some time in researching other possible companies, for that might present cheaper options. Since every company has different rates, it’s likely that you will find the offers by some more favourable than others. Researching multiple man with van London services is the best way to ensure you find a deal that suits your budget.
Sell some of your belongings – if the volume of items you want to move to your new home is large, so will be the overall price of the London man and van service. While it is true you cannot do without some part of your belongings, you can likely select a few things you no longer need and dispose of them. And what better way of disposal than selling those items and making some money out of them? You can put them at an online auction or even hold a garage sale to profit from what you consider junk.
Don’t take everything with you – if you wish to reduce the price on the man and van London service, then you should move only what you consider essential. Furniture and appliances are likely candidates for moving first, but can you say the same for all of your interior items, art and clothes? The more of them you put in boxes and take on the van, the higher the cost you have to pay. So the option to take only a limited amount of items with you is real. You can always come back for the rest at a later stage.
Get packing materials for free – how is that possible, you may ask? Certain stores and supermarkets use a large number of boxes and other such materials every single day. If there are any such nearby, you can take advantage of that and get some boxes for free. For the most part, they are going to recycle them anyway, so it should be no issue for them to give you some of them.
Carefully decide on your moving date – if you choose to move during peak season, you can expect to pay the absolute maximum for booking a London man and van team. You can benefit from a sweet deal if you decide to move off-peak season. Even choosing a day different from weekend can introduce possible discounts.
Keep all of these in mind when moving to a new home. Any of them can save you a lot of money and contribute to a budget-friendly move.
