We all know how expensive moving can be – from buying packing supplies, hiring movers to help you pack and move, the expenses of the moving truck, potentially taking off work, so on and so forth. Trying to move as cheaply as you can is really important, and we’re here to help. Not only do we help with excellent local moves, but we also provide affordable help for moving intrastate.

One way you can save money during your move is when it comes to packing and moving supplies. Keep reading to learn some helpful tips about saving money on your moving supplies!

  • You can find inexpensive packing supplies (like tape, mattress bags, tape guns, and packing paper) on websites like Amazon or in stores like Walmart.
  • If you aren’t hiring a moving company, use your own blankets to protect your furniture. Otherwise, your moving company should supply what’s needed to protect your furniture.
  • Try to find free boxes and packing supplies locally online. Try Craigslist, Offerup, Letgo, or the Nextdoor app to find people trying to get rid of their moving supplies for free.
  • Use what you have already! As you’re ordering things for your new home, use old shipping boxes you already have. Collect packing materials that you might have already too (like tape, markers, etc.).
  • Use linens, sheets, and towels to pack. Instead of purchasing packing paper, use your linens to wrap and protect some items. Be mindful with your breakable items, though.
  • Make use of your suitcases to pack items like books or other bulky items. Suitcases with wheels are especially helpful for packing heavier items.

While many moving companies will offer good deals on packing supplies, if you are trying to be financially-conscious during your move, you can save a lot of money by using what you already have in terms of packing supplies. If you still want to hire movers, that’s a great idea! Choose to spend money on what will help you most during your move.
