Tips for Moving on a Budget
After the initial excitement of finding a new home fades, you’re left with one huge task: moving. And let’s face it—moving can be expensive. From hiring a moving company to renting trucks and getting boxes and supplies, there’s a lot that goes into getting from point A to point B. So how can you plan to move on a limited budget? SMARTBOX is here to help make your move easier—and more affordable.

Moving on a Budget
If you’re moving on a budget, there are a couple things you can do to cut costs without cutting corners:
Use suitcases – don’t forget that you probably already own a couple moving boxes—yes, we mean your suitcases! They’re a great way to pack your clothes without having to spend extra money on cardboard boxes.
Repurpose household objects – the best practice for packing boxes is keeping everything tight and well-padded. But how can you do that without purchasing a bunch of bubble wrap and packing paper? You can use towels, bed sheets, and blankets for anything from padding boxes to covering furniture during your move. In addition, if dad’s been saving up the sports pages for the last four months, newspaper makes great wrapping for your more delicate belongings!
Host a yard sale – do you have large items that you can’t bring with you or maybe just some things you don’t need with you in your new place? Hosting a yard sale or visiting a consignment shop are a great way to get a few things off your hands while adding a little padding to your pockets.
Make smart storage decisions – traditional storage can be a hassle—not to mention expensive! How can you get around that? SMARTBOX seamlessly integrates storage in with our moving services so that we can give you the best of both worlds. Not only do we allow you to pack in advance, but we can take designated boxes to our temperature-controlled storage facility for safe-keeping until you’re ready for them.
