Do you want to save money on your upcoming move? Of course, you do…who doesn’t?
The best way to save money on moving is to move fewer items. It doesn’t get any simpler than that. The fewer items you move, the less costs associated with getting to your new home.
If you are moving soon, consider leaving these items behind when moving to your new home.
Leaving bulky furniture behind when moving
It’s a good idea to look at all the furniture in your home before listing it for sale. The reason for this is you may be interested in negotiating with the buyer of your home to leave items behind. Some of the heavier items include pool tables, dining room furniture or large bookcases. Ask your real estate agent about the best way to go about this.
Consider leaving garden tools and power equipment behind
Do you really want to move that riding mower or snow blower to your next home? Or do you even need it where you’re going? The buyer of your home may be eager to purchase that riding mower and snow blower off your hands so consider it a negotiation tool when selling your home.
Books are heavy. Consider donating them
If you’re a bookworm, you may be frightened to think of parting with your books. But the fact is, books are heavy and if you have a lot of books, that is going to add money to the cost of your move… It’s a great idea to go through all your books and consider which ones you could donate or sell.
