Amazing Money-Saving Moving House Tips

Moving house isn’t for the faint-hearted. If you’ve ever lifted a heavy box (or 20) you’ll know what I’m talking about. While I love change, the thought of taking every part of my life and moving it on makes my stomach knot-up. Wrapping up glasses and photo frames and putting them in boxes is fragile business. Most people hope on the day their precious stuff will make it there without breakages. But stuff happens usually.
 
All the little things add up. Moves are strategic, logistical nightmares. This is because they occur while normal life continues.
 
Finances get stretched too and it is money that makes moving well, taxing. 
 
Of course, you’re in the Savings Room – so there’s always a silver lining here. I’m delivering great news about moving house today in the form of easy practical tips.
 
Pop these tips at the top of your moving list and you might actually enjoy the process. 

Plan ahead

Planning is the secret to success. Moving house is no exception. When moving be ready for anything. Things can, and will, go wrong.The only way to avoid mishaps is to have a clear and careful plan. If you’re winging it, you’ll end up opening your wallet and throwing money into the air – like confetti. It’s hard for people to take advantage of you if you’re calm. Stay collected and organise and you’ll experience a winning and not disastrous move.
