Moving can be a very stressful and expensive experience. With a little planning, you can eliminate, or at least reduce, the costs and stress linked with you removal services experience. Here are a few common mistakes to avoid:
- Timing your move – You can save money and have more options by avoiding moving during the very end or beginning of the month, when most leases expire. Look for dates around the 7 to 21st of the month. Keep in mind if moving your items to storage, most leases are weekly and you can start on any day of the week.
- Waiting until the last minute – this one is an obvious one, but needs to be included. The ideal planning period for booking removal services in Oxford is one to two months. If you start early you can eliminate stress and save money.
- Be transparent about the move – If you decide to forgo an on-site estimate, make sure you give an honest assessment of the job. If you are up four flights of stairs, make sure they are aware of it!
- Assuming you can do it yourself – When you figure in all the costs such as moving supplies, truck, gas and your time, you might find it actually pays to hire a professional. Be honest with yourself! Keep in mind at Fort Box Oxford we offer a Free Van Collection on select unit sizes. Savings from the gas and truck can go towards a mini spa visit after the move is complete!
