The answer is plain and simple: Careful Planning!
Nothing can be worse then when you intend to move and try to get everything done in the last minute or two.
If you do it way, your move can quickly turn into a stressful event for anyone involved along with the fact that your move will likely cost a lot more than if you had taken your time with it.
So what can you do if you want to plan your move well ahead?
One of the things that can make any move a lot easier is if you start packing well ahead in time. Most households will have items that could easily be packed many weeks if not months ahead of the day of the move. Think about those things that you don’t need on a daily basis such as books, artwork, your clothing from the previous season and similar items. Why not pack them weeks ahead and store the boxes in the meantime?
It can help if you go over your home’s inventory and make a list about those things that can be packed early on and those things that you cannot live with out until the last minute before you move.
Once you pack your items make sure you mark all the boxes so you know what’s inside and what goes where. This can be a great help afterwards since you sure don’t want to open each single moving box in case you’re looking for something.
With pretty much any move you can save good money if the movers will only have to take away and transport your boxes and furniture. In other words, the more work you can do to help with the move the more money you could save.
If you need to watch your spending you can rent a camper van yourself. This is the most economic way to move. Not only will a VW camper van enable you to move affordably whenever you need, getting a VW camper fan is also one the best and most exciting ways to go on holidays.
