    Default inexpensive ways to move



    We will be moving within the next six months and need inexpensive ways to move. No it is not a military move, so they won't move us. We are moving off of base because my mom needs to live with us.

    Hi Tiffany: First things first. Start saving your newspapers

    now. You will go through a lot packing dishes, glassware, ect. If

    you happen to be lucky enough to live near a newspaper office, ask

    about their end rolls. They will probably be very happy to give you

    as many as you think you will need. The plus side of this is that

    the end rolls will not have any ink on them like the regular

    newspaper. Also check with any local bars or liquor stores for their

    liquor boxes or cases. These are great for packing glasses, cups,

    ect. Also if you have any Wal-Marts nearby try to go in during their

    third shift hours. This is when they do the truck unloading and

    night stocking and you will usually be able to get all of the boxes

    you can stuff into your vehicle. I know when I moved about two years

    ago, I had to make quite a few night trips to Wal-Mart to get enough

    boxes to move with. When I knew the move was coming up I began to

    stockpile everything, and began to pack things I could live without

    until I got moved. If your Wal-Mart was like mine they were more

    than happy to give me their boxes, because this prevented them from

    having to haul them back to the bailer. Oh one last thing. Invest

    in a tape gun and plenty of tape(can buy at Wal-Mart in hardware,

    paint dept.) This was a Godsend. Sorry I rambled on so long, I hope

    this helps. If you need anymore ideas just ask. Good luck and take

    care. Lana J

    There's a moving company called (at least I think it's called) ABG

    moving. They bring you the truck and you load it and then they drive it

    for you. It's costs about half of what regular movers pay. We were

    researching movers a few months ago but then ended up not moving (yet).

    I guess it depends on how far you are planning to move - it might just

    be best to rent a large U-haul and hire a couple of college kids for

    cheap to help you load and unload.

    Default inexpensive ways to move

    Hi Tiffany! We moved from one city to another about 14 years ago

    because my husbands company closed down. So, we had very little

    money to make such a move. First, we had a garage sale and made

    about $700. This is what we used for the move and we had quite a bit

    left over. As for moving, we packed all our own stuff. We hired a

    two man crew to load everything on the moving truck (Uhall). When we

    got to our new city, we hired another two man crew to unload for us.

    It cost us a total of $400 for the movers (if memory serves me

    correctly). We thought ths was a bargin. To have someone pack us

    and move us would have cost about $2000. I was six months pregnant

    at the time so I could help with all that heavy lifting.



    If this is a local move, get friends to help and borrow a pickup

    truck. If you don't have to move all in one day, box up what you can

    and move it in your vehicle. However, you would have to make several

    trips, but it does help on the budget. Watch gas prices on this

    though. Renting a Uhall truck is fairly reasonable, or if you have a

    hitch on your vehicle, get one that you can pull - even cheaper.



    Just my thoughts.

    Default inexpensive ways to move

    If you don't have people to help you pack your van/moving truck, you can

    call a local church and make a donation to their youth group. Many churches

    will come and help for a donation.just figure out what that donation will be

    ahead of time with the leader of the group. You can also call a church on

    the other end and do the same thing. The donations are tax deductible and

    both parties win!

    Start saving newspapers, junk fliers, bubble wrap, or anything else you can use to pack. Ask for boxes from stores orbring them home from work. My husband nabbedabout 50% of our packing boxes by walking down the hallat work. He asked if it wasalright if we couldhave them and was given theOK as the boxes were to be disposed of.Some things wepack inlargeplastic tubs... things like crystal or good china as we only use those things once or twice ayear. We store the tubs in acloset andtake out the china at Thanksgiving and put right back in afterdinner. We never 'unpack' it. Use dish towels and bath towels to wrap breakables, too. Start packing now... decorations or extra linens that you won't need in the next six months. Pack a box each day.This is a good time to either have a garage sale or donate things you don't
    need or use. For in-town moves, try to overlap your move-out date with your move-in date so that you have a weekend to move everything. This way, you can move the boxes in your own vehicles, and if you have a truck, you can move your furniture. That way, you don't have to rent a moving van. If you don't have access to a truck, there are usually 'in-town' moving van rentals for $19.99 or something like that. For long distance moves, we usually hire movers to help us load the truck, but we rent and drive the truck ourselves. At the destination, we hire movers to help us unload the truck. Since we move a lot with my husband's job, we've pared down our belongings and we hire the movers for an hour. Usually costs about $75 to $100 but for us well worth the money to have help with the washer and dryer and furniture. I'm sure you'll get tons more advice from this
    group.

    Default inexpensive ways to move

    We are making a big move next weekend. What we've been doing is

    driving the hour and 15 minutes each way on the weekends, and

    loading down our van and car for each trip. We've made 5 trips so

    far, but none that were taxing or horrible. It is expensive gas

    wise, but it means that next weekend, we won't need nearly as large

    of a truck to rent.



    We're just renting a U-Haul, and loading it up. My dad is driving up

    with his truck to help us out, and we'll be using the van again as

    well. We plan to make the majority of the move next weekend with all

    that help.

    I've moved coast to coast 4 times and my last move was from Maryland

    to Iowa. I checked out ABG and someothers and found that doing it

    myself was considerably cheaper. We rented a 26' Uhaul and did fine.
