Money Saving Tips for Moving on a Budget

Streamwood / Bartlett, Illinois:
Moving to a new place can be extremely exciting, but many people dread the process. Not only is it hard, but it can cost a lot of money as well. Thankfully there are ways to manage the amount you spend, and our Streamwood & Bartlett U-Stor-It storage team is here to assist you.

Find Cheap Boxes

Boxes can come at a hefty price. There are lots of options on places like Craigslist for cheap or free boxes, but that road can be a major hassle due to unreliable sources. Boxes can be found for a great price at your local U-Stor-It or from various suppliers in the area.

Garage Sale

You will be surprised how much stuff you don’t need yet let sit around in your residency. Dispose of them by selling them, giving them to friends or charity, or just throwing them in the trash or recycle bin. These items could include books, clothing, and excess furniture/décor. This will make the move lighter, and it may save a decent amount of space.

DIY

If you can afford the time and effort, moving without a moving company is ideal. For many the amount of time necessary as well as the stress of the labor makes the value of a moving company significantly higher than doing it yourself. The saved time and effort of a moving company can have you feeling better in the long haul even though it puts more of a hole in your wallet.

If you do choose the DIY path you will need to plan extra time than you thought initially—the last thing you want to happen is to run out of time because the process took longer than expected.
