Couple planning their moving budget for 2022

The Best Moving Budget For 2024

Last-minute moving can be costly and go over budget!  Sometimes people don't plan in advance for their relocation and end up paying more for last-minute moving services.

Having to pay more is usually because of poor planning. It is recommended to plan your moving budget,  so you can know what the entire move will cost.  The costs of moving can quickly add up.

This knowledge will be beneficial and will influence your move. 

Start by getting a couple of in-home estimates from some reputable moving companies in your area. Those estimates will help you gauge the costs of a professional mover. Ask plenty of questions to find out what's included and what is not. Ask about extra charges and what they entail. Ask about what they don't handle so you can plan for items that require special handling. Cross-check online reviews to make sure the company has a solid reputation to avoid headaches. Book the mover that offers the best customer service and support. Don't pick a mover based on the lowest price. Not all movers are equal when it comes to service. 

If you require short term or long term storage services,  you will need to calculate the costs of storage and transportation fees and labour for moving your items to the storage facility. 

You might need to consider the extra costs associated with buying and selling your current home.  The moving budget should take into account fees related to the real estate attorney, title fees, realtor commissions, inspections, or appraisals.  

If you are moving from a rental unit, consider the charges related to the cleaning of the unit and repairs that may be required before you move.
