How To Save Money Moving Into Your New Oceanside Condo

How To Save Money Moving Into Your New Oceanside Condo

Moving to a new Oceanside condo can be very stressful, and unexpected moving costs can make it worse.  It’s hard to budget for the unknown.  But, with a little planning, you can have the extra cash on hand for those surprise expenses. 

Start finding moving supplies well in advance of your moving date.  Waiting until the last minute may find you frantically searching and ultimately paying more than you needed to.

Save Money On Boxes

Moving boxes from a retail store or moving company can cost a few dollars per box.  By the time you have packed your whole [city] condo, you could be out hundreds of dollars.  Instead, try these money saving ideas:

Look on your local Craig list for low-cost or free moving boxes.  Most people will let you have them for free just for getting them out of their way.

E-bay is another good place to look for cheap moving boxes.  Remember to factor in shipping costs before making a purchase.

If you can’t find any boxes online, you can check with your local grocery store.  They are always unpacking shipments and usually have an assortment of boxes that you can pick from.  

Save On Packing 

It’s convenient to hire a moving company to pack your belongings.  But, the added expense of using their boxes, packing supplies and labor can really add up.  You may find that the costliness will motivate you to do the packing yourself.

Don’t spend a lot of money on packaging materials.  Newspaper is great for cushioning breakables, like dishes and wine glasses.  You can even use your clothing, bedding and towels to wrap delicate items.  And socks can fill up extra spaces in boxes just as well as styrofoam.

Save On A Moving Van

Before you pay a lot of money to rent a moving van, check with your family and friends.  A trailer or a long-bed truck is good for moving most everything.  Offer to pay them for the gas.  It will still be cheaper than renting a U-Haul

By following these suggestions, you can save yourself big bucks moving to your new Oceanside condo.
