Tips For Keeping Your Move Simple & Cheap

Looking to make your move less stressful and more affordable? We’ve got some great guidelines to help you out. Check them out below, then reach out to our team today. The Mobile Attic is happy to serve you!

Find Free Boxes

Grocery stores, liquor stores, hardware stores, and countless other businesses typically store up boxes pretty quickly, and most are more than willing to give them away at no cost. Buying a box or two from the store won’t put a big dent in your budget, but if you need a lot of them those dollars can add up fast. Why pay for something that you can easily get for free? Ask around, and you should be all set in no time.

Don’t Buy Packing Paper

If you have newspapers, old magazines, junk mail, or even old phone books, all of these things can be torn apart and used to keep your breakable items safer. We also suggest using pillows, sheets, and clothing to provide some extra cushion.

What Can You Sell?

Moving requires you to go through everything, even closets and storage spaces that you stashed stuff in and forgot about years ago. Fortunately, this lends the perfect opportunity for selling items you no longer need, which will lighten your moving load and bring in extra cash. Go through it all – toys, games, electronics, books, clothing, and more – and relieve yourself of any extra baggage.

Try To Save

If you still have time before you pack up the house, do your best to set aside money here and there, so you have some cushion for the weeks surrounding your move. Extra expenses are bound to pop up, and many times people find themselves needing to take off work, as well. A small nest egg can provide you with that peace of mind you need, and you’ll be able to focus all of the attention on your move.

Create An “Open First” Box

It’s not uncommon for homeowners to get to their new house, only to realize they need some essentials. Fill one box with things like toilet paper, paper towels, paper plates, eating utensils, basic tools, garbage bags, a shower curtain, and anything else you think you’ll need in the first few hours. This will save you an emergency trip to the store, and it will make everything a lot easier, too!

Make sure this box is marked well, and it might be a good idea to stash it in your car or somewhere easily accessible.

Getting The Protection You Deserve

Is Your Business Relocating We Can Help! - Nashville TN - Mobile AtticProtecting your assets is vital when maintaining a successful business, and we take this very seriously. Our containers are built to withstand all types of weather. We invest in the strongest materials like steel, fiberglass, and aluminum, so you don’t have to worry about a thing. Once your items are packed, you can secure the container with a padlock, meaning only you have access to your belongings. You can use your own lock or buy one from us.

Another protection we offer is our secure strapping system for your items. If you’re concerned about your items shifting and falling over through the transit process, then ask us about our e-track straps. They conveniently hook into rails that are installed on the floor and the sides of our containers. Be sure to use our moving blankets, too! They minimize the risk of getting scratches on your valuable furniture.

Making The Process As Easy As Possible

We don’t put strict time restraints on our rental agreements either. We deliver the unit straight to you, and you can keep it on your property for as long as you need! We can go month to month, so you don’t have to worry about a time frame. We’ll even take payments directly from your account, so you don’t need to worry about a thing!
