There is hardly anyone, who doesn’t prefer to save money. No matter whatever we do like traveling, eating out or shopping; we always prefer to save some bucks. Then why not to save money while it comes to shifting your home? But it is really unfortunate that there are no sites or apps, which give us actual saving tips about home shifting. So, after analyzing a number of moves, in this article, we have presented 5 tips that are really effective in saving money on home shifting. Let’s get the details:
1. Always plan your move minimum 2-3 weeks earlier:
This offers you adequate time to look out for various packers and movers in Kolkata companies and the quotes offered by them. As this sector is very much unorganized, therefore here you will get different quotes that will range from breathtaking high to unbelievably low. But in case you don’t have much time in your hand, then you can consult with the experts in this industry to make the move secure and easy.
2. Always plan the move on weekdays:
While shifting, you will find that the majority of the movers are busy on the weekends. They also know that they have a really high demand and therefore they cash on it. But on the other hand, the costs are a little less on the weekdays and the professionalism of the vendors is quite better as they usually don’t have any other commitments for the day. Therefore, you can expect to get more for less.
3. Act generously while listing all the major items to the vendor
The majority of the customers skip listing all the items that they want or don’t want to take with them. But you must not do this. In case you miss any items that you don’t want to carry, do inform the movers in advance before the day when you move. In case you fail, it will create loads of hassle on the moving day. Besides, this will also give the vendor more advantage to charge more for additional goods as the person knows that you will have no other options than paying for it. So, always be transparent to save money.
4. Decrease the load size:
House is one such place where we love to preserve all the important and memorable stuffs. Apart from that, here we also pile up loads of unused things and junks. But this is not a wise idea to carry all these junks with you to the new place where you move. So, you can choose to put those on sale, or you can sell those off to your neighbors or friends or you can donate those to the needy.
