Budgeting your move

budgeting your move

It’s not a secret that moving to a new place is an expensive endeavour. A budget can help you determine what the most convenient and cost-effective way to move your stuff from your old house to your new one.

You have to take into consideration that every move is unique therefore getting a professional estimate is important.

As you know the price of moving will depend on a number of key factors such as: location, items to move, shipment weight, etc.

So, how do you budget your move?

Moving company

If you decide to hire a moving company, get estimates from several companies. Be sure to get the initial moving fee, any extra service fees, insurance, etc. You should also give your budget some room for damages or any other unforeseen moving company expenses.


You will still need to purchase some bubble wrap, packing paper, tape, and of course – cardboard boxes.


If you have a lot of belongings and not enough space, consider renting a storage unit. Get quotes from several storage providers and choose the best one for you. Moving your belonging to and from storage is an additional cost so don’t forget to add that into your budget.

Additional things to consider

Self-moving costs

Don’t forget to include additional DIY moving costs such as insurance, food, transportation costs, potential damages, etc.

Number of items that need to be moved 

Try to reduce the number of the items you take with you. Before the move, go through your belongings and select fewer things to move, you will save more money in the end.

Hidden moving fees

It is important to be aware of all the hidden fees prior to moving. Make sure to get all the details from your moving company.
