Moving to a new house is both a thrilling new adventure and a costly undertaking. Whether you’re on a tight budget or not, minimising expenditures everywhere you can will help you save money. Here are four ways to save money when relocating:
FIND FREE MOVING SUPPLIES
If you don’t have to, don’t pay for boxes or other packing supplies. Instead, inquire with friends, neighbours, and even local businesses to see if they have any boxes that you may borrow. To protect glasses and other fragile things during packing, use old T-shirts and rags. If you can’t ﬁnd the moving goods you need for free, we have moving supplies and equipment for sale and for rent at Elite Truck Rental.
GET RID OF THINGS YOU DO NOT REQUIRE AND DO NOT USE
Another way to cut costs when relocating is to get rid of personal belongings you no longer need or use, such as kitchen equipment, clothing you no longer wear, and other miscellaneous stuff. Selling such items can create some positive ﬁnancial ﬂow, but whether you sell them or not, getting rid of them saves time and reduces the load you have to carry. You may be entitled for a tax deduction if you donate your items.
ARE YOU AWARE OF WHAT YOU CAN DEDUCT?
It’s critical to keep track of your moving expenditures since you may be able to deduct part of them. Also, if you’re relocating for employment, your company may be able to assist you by reimbursing you for part of your expenses — be sure to inquire!

THE ULTIMATE LIST OF MOVING SUPPLIES
However, before you get the keys to your new house, you’ll need to ﬁgure out how to pack up the old one in the most effective way possible.
You probably already know that you’ll need a lot of boxes to ﬁnish your move. While you can buy boxes, we encourage trying to collect some for free to save some money. Ask if you can take some boxes from most grocery stores and other food and retail outlets that throw away boxes on a daily basis.
CUSHIONS AND PADS
While certain objects, such as your stacks of books, can simply ﬁll a box without any padding, others will require some padding to avoid damage during your relocation. There are a few alternatives available to you here. You can wrap fragile goods like your plates in old rags or t-shirts, which is a simple solution. Different cushioning solutions, such as furniture pads, foam wrap sheets, and bubble wrap, are also available.
LABELS AND TAPE
You’ll need some high-quality packing tape to ensure that your boxes are ﬁrmly packed and that the contents don’t spill during transit. Labels are equally as vital as tape. The last thing you want to worry about is arriving at your new address and not knowing which box your belongings are in. Labels have the potential to help alleviate the situation.
No matter how strong you are, there will be boxes and furniture items that are simply too heavy for you to lift. A hand truck or dolly can help you avoid this issue and make transporting many boxes at once, as well as large furniture or appliances, much easier.
Tools are usually not the ﬁrst thing that comes to mind when thinking about moving, but they can come in handy if you need to dismantle or disassemble a piece of furniture (such as a bed frame) so that it can be moved more easily.
