What’s the Best Way to Save Money on Your Move?
Looking for the very best way to make your next move more affordable? It’s actually a lot easier than you think:
Move in the Middle of the Month
Yes, it’s true, the number one way to save money with our moving company is to move in the middle of the month. When you move with Two Small Men between the 4th and the 24th of the month, you’ll be able to save up to $30 per hour on your move!
Why? Well the beginning and end of the month is the most popular time for moving. It makes sense, since most leases or sales start or end at those times. However, that means moving companies are a lot busier. That means, not only will your local or long distance move cost more than in the middle, there is less opportunity to get the dates and times you want.
What Can We Do to Help You Have a More Affordable Move?
In addition to offering mid-month discounts, we often have deals available to you. We’ll always let you know if your moving day qualifies for one. If you have flexible moving dates or times, let us know and we might be able to find you some great savings!
What Can You Do to Save Money when Moving?
Of course, everyone loves a discount from their moving company. But if you’re really looking for the most affordable move, there are a few things you should do. Remember, there are three main “you” factors that effect 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:
The less stuff you have, the less your move will cost. Simple as that. Because most people end up moving a whole bunch of stuff 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 makes 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 prior to a move, we are Move For Hunger partners.
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 superspeed? 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
Something that always makes a move cost more is when movers have to take time to navigate across streets or over ice, or when they have to wait for elevators that haven’t been booked. Make sure your moving company has easy, safe, convenient access to your old and new homes if possible
