Money Saving Moving Tips

Money saving moving tips:

  oSave money on your rental equipment by avoiding the weekend rush and
    especially try to avoid the end of the month when rental leases expire.
  oTypically, Sunday through Thursday offer greater equipment availability at
    a better cost…plus, banks, utilities and government offices are open.
  oPrior to your move, check out the U-Haul Online Moving Supply Calculator
    and Planner
    to help you determine how many boxes you will need. Buy more boxes and
    supplies than you think you might need as U-Haul has a 100 percent buyback
    guarantee on all boxes and moving supplies with a receipt.
  oIf you are making a one-way move, be sure to take advantage of the free
    month of self-storage. Customers can utilize the free storage before or
    after a one-way move.
  oProtect your belongings! The last expense you want to incur is replacing
    your personal belongings because they were damaged due to poor packing.
    Protect your items by using the proper moving supplies, such as U-Haul
    packing peanuts, which are 100 percent biodegradable, bubble wrap or
    U-Haul furniture pads made from recycled denim.
  oRent a trailer instead of a truck. Trailers are more affordable as you
    will save money on gas. Plus with an in-town move, you only pay a daily
    rental rate and don't have to pay any mileage fees.
  oPrior to moving, look into your homeowner's insurance policy. Some
    policies will cover belongings while moving as long as the insurance
    policy is in force during the move.
