Save money on your move

We understand that budget is often top of mind when it comes to planning your move. That’s why we offer a variety of discounts and money saving opportunities that can help you keep costs down!

MOVE MID-MONTH TO SAVE UP TO $30 PER HOUR

Looking for the very best way to make your next move more affordable? It’s a lot easier than you think. All you have to do is avoid moving at the beginning or the end of the month! Yes, it’s true, the number one way to save money on your move with Two Small Men is simply to move in the middle of the month.

Why are mid-month moves less expensive?

The beginning and end of the month are the most popular times for moving since most leases or possession dates are at that time. As with most services, the cost is often related to the demand. The moving industry is no different! 

If you have some flexibility, we can potentially help you save up to $30/hour on your move. Make sure to let us know what your plan is so we can help save you money.

WHEN IS A MID-MONTH MOVE?

The mid-month window varies from month to month based on demand. Generally speaking, it falls between the 4th and the 24th of each month. Let us know your plan ahead of time so we can help advise you on the best dates for a discount for your moving timeline.

WHAT ELSE CAN YOU DO TO SAVE MONEY WHEN MOVING?

We’ll always offer you the best deal we can, but if you want to make your move even more budget-friendly, there are some things you can do on your own.

In addition to your move date, there are three main “you” factors that impact the cost of your move: how much stuff you have, how prepared you are, and the location access points.

Here’s how you can help get the price of your move down:

Downsize

The less stuff you have, the less your move will cost. Simple as that. Because most people end up moving a whole bunch of things they don’t need or want anymore, a simple way to get a cheaper move is to get rid of some of it first.

We suggest you consider donating some of your items to a charity that will help people who need it more. We have a partnership with the Cerebral Palsy Associations of Alberta and BC that can make donating clothing and small furniture easy and convenient. We have the same type of program available for large furniture through our partnership with the Habitat for Humanity Restore. As well, if you need to get rid of access non-perishable food before a move, we are Move For Hunger partners.

BE PREPARED

We all know time is money. That means the best way to save money when moving is to save time. The more prepared and organized you are, the faster your move will go. Always label everything accurately and have things ready and gathered where they are easy to pick up and load.

Want to go at super speed? We always offer packing services as well as furniture assembly, but if you do these things on your own, your move will cost even less.

MAKE THINGS ACCESSIBLE

The length and cost of a move is often affected by how easy to access the locations are. Taking some time to map out an optimal route, book any elevators (if needed), or clear paths, walkways, and entrances can really help!
