5 Vital steps to manage your moving budgetby Ram Sewak Transportation
Home relocation is an anxious task which cannot be performed without proper planning and organization. There are certain factors that need to be considered while computing your moving expenses especially if you are going to cover a longer distance. To manage the move from a professional point of view, the appointment of Agarwal Packers would be enough as they are a renowned name in the packing and moving segment but at times choosing a moving partner becomes a second priority because framing and managing a moving budget remains first.
By keeping an eye on all the moving activities, we need to be active while creating a moving budget too. It is the only factor that can reduce anxiety and stress associated with a shifting process.
To help you out with the moving cost management I have prepared a few vital tips that could do wonders.
Here it goes:
Step no. 1: Create an inventory list
Start the process by sorting out the articles that you wish to relocate. Choose the ones that you will be regularly using at your new place, not the ones that you don’t need anymore. There are few necessary items like utensils; toiletries, furniture, etc make sure you add them as these are the must-haves in your inventory list. To know the clarity of what you wish to move exactly, it is advisable to go room wise. Check room by room and prepare the list accordingly. Doing this will help you to keep a count on all the essential items that need to be transferred to your new place.
Step no. 2: Deep research
After you have prepared an inventory list, you must have a clear idea of the things that are meant to be packed and moved to your destination. However, a moving company needs to have your complete list of articles as they provide a price estimate based on the same. Apart from this, there are few components that are included while calculating a moving estimate:
• Nominal or fixed rate- There are many companies that have framed slabs in terms of rates to relocate different sizes of houses. For instance, there is a fixed rate to relocate stuff for a 1 BHK, 2 BHK, 3 BHK, and so on regardless of the quantity of the goods present in each of them. It is called a base moving fee.
• Special charges for special items- Many people have unique items present at their homes such as tennis tables, pool tables, pianos, antiques which are considered as specialized items. Thus, moving companies charge relatively more for these while packing and moving your stuff from one place to another.
• Risk coverage- Relocation has several risks attached to it due to which a customer expects some sort of risk coverage or guarantees in return to ensure the safety against their goods that have been handover by them to the hired experts. So, to cope up with such things, transit insurance is provided by these companies to their customers and if something gets damaged during the process, the customer gets the compensation against the same.
Along with this, there are certain questions that you must ask from movers and packers while appointing them, it will help you to make your moving plan manageable.
• Know the truck fare: As soon as you have finalized your destination place, know about the distance that you are going to cover. It is the information that you must know before hiring a truck.
• Home storage: If you are looking for some safe place to bank your goods then you can get the services easily available with the moving professionals that you have hired. You are simply required to pay a monthly rental according to the goods that you are storing.
• Other services: Learn about the other services that are offered by them. Examine the ones that you wish to avail properly.
Step no. 3: Decide your moving date and time
One thing that you must know while choosing a date for your move is the weather that has been going on. Usually, a moving company charges less during winters and weekdays however, in summers can be asked to pay more. This is because the movers are usually overloaded with the work during summers and public holidays whereas the scenario is totally reverse on weekdays. This is the factor that directly makes a lot of difference to your moving cost. Thus, decide your moving day smartly.
Step no. 4: Keep some loose cash to deal with petty expenses
Life and expenses continue till you are alive. A home relocation does make any difference to it. If you have a child then there is a fee that you have to pay, if you have a pet then it needs food and if you are hungry obviously you have to spend on groceries. The expenses almost double whenever you shift to a new place because you are not aware of the fares and other charges that may be levied on you. Therefore, start calculating your monthly expenses and try to lower them down for a certain period. The money that will be left can be used to cope up with the daily expenses that will incur in near future
Step no. 5: Search the ways to earn extra
To meet your relocation needs and make it a better affair then you must start looking for some extra income. You can simply start it by selling the extra stuff that you may have at your home. Avoid eating in a fancy restaurant, limit your shopping, try to work for some extra hours, etc adopting these habits for a limited period could provide you a huge relaxation in your moving expenses.
I hope these points will help you to create your moving budget effectively but still, you are facing any problem then it is advisable to hire Agarwal packers and movers and pay via your credit card. You can simply avail of services and pay later.
Have a happy move!
