Preparing your expensive stuff for relocation can be quite an overwhelming experience.

1. Hire a professional moving company or pack by yourself.

So, what are the benefits of hiring a moving company to help you pack all your belongings? Is it just an unnecessary expense? Well, it depends. Having a professional moving company has several benefits.

First, all your belongings are insured. This means that if anything was to happen to them during transport you would be well compensated. Secondly, and especially if you hire our moving services you’ll get professional moving help. This gets you not just the necessary moving help but also the professional equipment that will help ensure no damage comes to your precious belongings.

On the other hand, if you pack by yourself you are first and foremost saving a few bucks upfront. This can be extremely beneficial for people who are trying to move with an affordable moving budget.

However, make sure that you know that if you decide to move in this way that you will have to buy all the necessary packing materials that will allow for all your expensive belongings to be properly packed. Oh, and on top of that, you are going to have to know exactly how to pack your belongings. If you make one wrong mistake it could be quite a setback. So it might be a smarter move to pay upfront a couple of bucks to hire a professional moving company, in order to ensure that no damages occur during transport.

3. I’ve already decided – I want to move by myself, what now?

If you can find yourself in the above-mentioned sentence then here are several tips that we think can help you immensely when preparing your expensive stuff for relocation.

  • Find affordable packing solutions. If you decide to relocate by yourself there is one important thing that you need to make sure you have taken care of. With that being said, we always recommend that you try to save up money where you can. That’s why we recommend that you try to find as many as free – cheap packing supplies. Moving boxes, packing paper, bubble wrap, etc. Now, we suggest that you find these at your local stores, supermarkets, and libraries. However, you can also find these supplies by asking around with your friends and family members who’ve recently relocated.
  • Make sure you find guides online for how to pack all your expensive belongings. If you only had to pack books and clothing, the world would be a much stressful place. Unfortunately, you also have to pack fragile items such as TVs, pianos, valuable and sometimes priceless pieces of art. We recommend that you search through our website, as we have an ever-growing database of guides on how to pack all of the above-mentioned pieces. Given the fact that if you fail to pack properly, you can do irreversible damages to your most prized possessions.
  • Use alternative ways for packing supplies. If, on the other hand, you cannot find affordable packing supplies you will have to do with what you have. Drawers, plastic bins, and containers will do nicely here. And the good thing is that everyone has them laying around in their pantry and house. Oh, it’s also quite green on the environment as you are not getting packing supplies that are non-recyclable.

4. Preparing your expensive stuff for relocation by a professional moving company

However, there are several tips we can give you here to get the best deal with your moving company.

  • Move during the offseason. The single best way to get a great deal from your movers is to move during the offseason. Not only will the prices be cheaper, but they will likely be more flexible with their schedule.
  • Schedule early, snag that discount.  Another great way to find a great price for your next move is to try to schedule as early (2 months in advance) as possible. Some moving companies offer ridiculous discounts if you relocate earlier. So, use that to your advantage, and give them a call as soon as possible.
  • Declutter. Last, but by no means least – organizing your home and belongings. While it might seem benign, decluttering your belongings is of insurmountable importance for reducing the cost of your move. Given the fact that most moving companies charge their moves by the weight of your belongings. So, think – less is more.
