If you’ve moved or if you’re looking to move, you know that moving is an expensive time. You can plot and plan for every little nuance of the move, but nothing quite hits home like the unexpected expenses that always arise. Sometimes it’s a deposit for utilities that you didn’t expect, or the family and friends you had planned on helping you move with the truck you just rented bailed on you and now you’re looking into hiring movers. There are so many expenses that can crop up during a move, it’s like you’re watching Murphy’s Law in slow motion.
One of the easiest and sure fire ways to save money in your move and make sure you’re not relying on flakes to help you is to look into movers. Moving has always been a rapidly growing industry. While professional long distance movers are probably best for out of state moves, it’s the low cost movers in your local area that will help make your move as stress free as possible with the use of moving vans and pods. Some of the movers can be found at and around college campuses in your area. These college moving companies often hire college kids who need a job that revolves around their school schedule.
When looking into the movers online, it’s not unusual to find that thee college based companies are among the top listed. They are usually easy to make appointments with and very reasonable in pricing. The one downfall to them is that you usually need to contact them in advance. At an extra fee, they can arrange for the movers to be at your door in a few hours.
The college based companies that make up the bulk of moving companies that are considered among the movers, aren’t the only ones. Sometimes you find deals with local moving companies depending on your situation, and sometimes there are companies who are the movers not necessarily because they are the best, but because they are volunteers, working to make money for the organization they represent. You can get information on these movers online or usually through local area churches.
Regardless of your needs, why not take a little bit of the financial stress out of the move and look into the movers in your area.
