    Top 3 Ways to Save on Moving Costs

    Whenever we think of moving, we start thinking of expensive movers, our valuables getting damaged, our mover not showing up on time. The list goes on and on. However, of all these different stress factors that are inherent in moving, the one that most people are more concerned about is the cost.

    A greater majority of movers in the Greater Toronto Area charge by the hour and some even go to the extent of charging extra for stairs, the distance between the moving truck and the house or apartment entrance, the day of the week, etc, even when hourly rate should have already accounted for these factors. To help you save lots of money on your next move, we are sharing 3 tips that work every time, every day.

     

    1. 1. Rent a Moving Truck

    You can cut your moving cost by 80% if you rent a truck from Uhaul, Discount Truck or Bristol Truck. The price to rent a truck for the day is very affordable. Depending on the size of your move, you can get a truck from $29 to $99. It’s always advisable to book a truck a month in advance as it gets really busy during the last week of the month, which could make it difficult for you to get a truck.

    Once your truck is booked, you have to get your parking started. Make sure you designate boxes for the stuff that you have, making sure that breakables are well protected, and also making sure that the weight of your boxes does not exceed 50kgs.

    On the day of your move, pick up your truck from the rental company early in the morning and make sure you get all the required moving supplies. Now, you are ready to start loading the truck and while you are doing that, make sure you put heavy items at the bottom and light items at the top.

     

    1. 2. Rent a Container

    If you are not very comfortable with the idea of driving a moving truck, then renting a container could be a good alternative. There are lots of companies in the Greater Toronto Area that rent container on a daily, weekly or monthly basis.

    Here is how it works:

    A. You rent a container for a few weeks or a month.
    B. The container gets delivered on the specified date.
    C. You load the containers with your stuff.
    D. On the day of your move, the company picks up the container and drops it at your new address.
    E. You unload the container and prepare it for pickup.
