How to Move Your London Home on a Smaller Budget Mar 29, 2016Views: 4187
Not everyone in London can afford the most expensive moving company along with the best removals and make moving day look like a walk in the park. If you live in London there are certain steps you can take when you are facing a relocation and you want to make the move easier and cheaper. And no, it is not as simple as just hiring a man and van company. That would be reckless. The best method to do it is to actually think about the move in details and see all the small things you can cut away so as to make it less costly. Here are some tips:
The less you have to move, the less you will pay. This is a perfect time to sit down and get rid of all the clutter you’ve been struggling with, and every unnecessary items you’ve just been keeping around ‘in case you need it someday’. The latter is always a bad strategy, so make sure you are not making any wrong steps and you are instead planning for a cheap move. Downsize, and instead of paying for a van with several removals, all you will need is a mere man and van London service, just as you had hoped.
There is a difference between packing styles. Many people go about and look for the best supplies in order to have the least problems on the road. But it’s not the quality of supplies, it’s the quality of packing that matters. Get free boxes from your local stores and markets, then get proper sealing tape and you can pack everything there with the help of a heap of newspapers – it’s that simple. And do not use packing services from the moving company – it’s enough you’ll be paying for the quality man with van London has to offer.
No Moving Company
Actually, one way to cut a huge chunk of the cost is to avoid using a moving company whatsoever. That is the risky part as you will either have to make use of a van rental, or downsize your belongings so that they fit in your personal vehicle. Maybe friends will help you move as well. At the very least, check for a fairly inexpensive, but reliable London man with van.
You also need to be aware of the extra costs in case you do use a removal company. Look for the fine print in the contract, or check the terms and conditions page – that’s where you will find everything. Make sure they have parking space and make sure you make the removals lives easier in order to save the most money.
At the end of the day, moving should not be as expensive as you think. There is already enough anxiety to deal with without adding to it because of the fees you will have to pay. Act wisely, cut costs wherever you can without sacrificing quality and everything will be okay.
