There are many items to think about when planning a move and your budget plays a key part. The price of the moving company you choose is an important concern, of course, but there are other costs to consider as well. Getting a detailed quote and budgeting for these extra costs ahead of time can help you save considerably on your move.

The unexpected costs of moving

There are other expenses to consider while doing your research. Some of these extra costs could include:

  • Gas and per-mileage charges

  • Storage, hotels and tolls

  • Time spent driving

  • Towing your vehicle

  • Insurance

Cost vs. convenience

When it comes to moving, however, pricing isn’t everything. 

For instance, you might save a little when using a rental truck, but there may be added stress when you have to race against the clock to get the truck back on time. 

Make sure to consider those little wrinkles and inconveniences that many people don’t anticipate.  Are you confident about driving a rental truck through unfamiliar territory and prepared to deal with potential accidents, parking challenges, and breakdowns? If you hire a moving company and run into an unexpected delay, are there storage options available to you? Conveniences such as having someone else do the driving could save you some hassles – not to mention money – in the long run.

It’s no secret that moving can be stressful, but staying in control of your budget can at least alleviate some of the anxiety. By carefully researching and weighing your options, smart budgeting is a lot easier.
