Moving to Oklahoma City on a Budget: 5 Time and Money Savers

Packing for a moveBy Julie DeLong, A-1 Freeman Moving Group 

Moving to Oklahoma City generally is a stressful time, both psychologically and economically. There are several steps you can take to help ease your mind and spare your wallet. Selecting the best moving company can also be an important part of ensuring a smoother move.


Declutter and Sell

Getting ready for a sale while you prepare a move might sound counter-intuitive, however it might provide some much-needed assistance. Decluttering prior to a move is much simpler compared to doing so soon after. When you have determined what you would not be taking along with you, make an effort to sell it. Some items might have value to a niche retailer, but you can also try consignment or possibly a yard sale. Not only have you eliminated stuff you no longer need, but you also can put in a little more cash to your moving account. In case you are selling anything in a yard sale, choose a few days for the sale and adhere to them. Anything you don't get rid of may be donated anyplace you select.

Packing Materials

Cartons, packing tape, markers, and also stickers are some of the most significant elements of your move. They do not have to be the most costly element though! Ask around for cartons and tape. If you know somebody else who has recently finished moving, you might be capable to acquire used cartons from them. Many businesses will give you the boxes from their deliveries free of charge. In the event that you don't own packing tape currently, you'll want to buy it. You can aim for less expensive kinds but steer clear of the cheapest sort. You do not need the tape to fail on you. Markers and also peel off stickers are available in the majority of dollar stores, which may save you a lot of cash!

Color Coding

Whilst incorporating a color-coded method in your move is not going to save you money, it will save you lots of time. By simply coordinating your cartons in addition to pieces of furniture with color, there's a reduced probability a box is going to be put within the completely wrong place. You'll want to tag each area of the new house with a color as well. When it's time, the cartons will end up on the moving truck by size and weight, not necessarily by space. By having all the boxes color coded, once the cartons are unloaded, it will be a piece of cake to know the place every carton will go. Giving you additional time to settle into your new area rather than searching for where any specific box has gone.

Remain Organized

By the final couple of days of packing it's not shocking you are worn out and set for the entire adventure to be over and done with. You are looking forward to your new residence yet will probably miss the old to some extent. You've been encircled by boxes for many days (or perhaps weeks) and it's easy to become complacent. If you happen to allow yourself to commence tossing random items in random cartons, it may make things speedier at this moment, however it will take you longer to unbox down the road. This will likely mean taking added time off of work which has the possibility to set you back more money.

Selecting Professional Movers

Even though there is a cost connected to working with a professional moving company in Oklahoma City, they will save you time in addition to hassles. You will not need to panic about recruiting pals to help you carry the bulky things, leasing a moving van and gassing it back up, and you do not need to stress about how long it will take you to move all of the boxes. A professional moving company in Oklahoma City will be able to quickly, efficiently, and properly get all your possessions to your new residence.
