Tips for a short-distance move

Moving for a short distance has its benefits since sometimes you do not need a truck to transport your belongings and you can always ask someone for help. However, there are several more useful tips to remember if you move not far away:

  • Pack items before the moving day.
  • Take inventory of each box content.
  • Book your move on time.
  • Keep similar items together.
  • Defrost and clean fridge or freezer.
  • Get rid of unwanted items.
  • Know the size of your room.
  • Identify similar items with indicators.
  • Move in the early hours of the day.

Short Distance Moving Checklist

To make your short distance moving organized and less time-wasting, we have prepared a list of relocation checklists mostly overlooked.

  • Assign a company moving team.
  • Have a complete inventory of your office.
  • Define the main aim of moving.
  • Identify items that require special packaging.
  • Cover liquids with plastic wraps.
  • Label furniture parts.
  • Create a back-up file for all electronic documents.

How to reduce my moving costs?

Money should not be the reason to refuse from the help of professionals, because the consequences of such a decision can be more costly. However, we realize how important it is to be within the budget you have, so we offer you to learn several great hints of how to decrease the amount of moving costs.

  • Choose the date and time reasonably. Weekends, holidays and night shifts are usually more expensive as well as peak seasons such as spring and fall. Moreover, it is preferable to book a date in advance to be able to choose and save some money. Early booking is cheaper, especially in winter;
  • Try to find as many free packing materials as possible. You can use second-hand wrap and boxes, ask your friends or some businesses to give them to you;
  • Pack everything yourself since this service is paid additionally and is not included in the moving package;
  • Make up a moving budget and consider all the expenses;
  • Create a checklist of the things to move yourself and follow it carefully;
  • Declutter and sell all the things you use quite rarely not to pay for their moving and get some profit;
  • Apply for a tax deduction if it is possible or look for help in different charity organizations to save..
