September 2, 2021 | Household Moves, Moving Guides & Tips

Moving can be complicated and expensive… and if you don’t plan ahead, your expenses can skyrocket! But don’t fret: the relocation experts at Wheaton World Wide Moving have compiled a few tips on moving budget best practices:

How to Put Together a Moving Budget

What You Need to Know Before You Start Creating Your Moving Budget:

1. The Location of Your Move

The distance of your move heavily impacts the price. Before you start on your moving budget, solidify your destination.

2. How Much Stuff You Have

Go room by room and make note of your belongings—especially items that are particularly large, fragile, or expensive. This’ll give you a better idea of what type of moving services you’ll need.

3. Which Moving Company You Want to Use

Compare three moving companies with positive reviews on Google’s business listings. Make sure all have a moving license and several years of experience. Request an in-home moving estimate and throw out any that are super high or suspiciously low. Choose the company that feels the most trustworthy and gives good customer service vibes.
