When you're about to enlist the help of movers--like Caccamise Moving & Storage Co--you can do yourself a favor by getting rid of items that will slow down your move. Here are some items to consider getting rid of.
Cheap, Heavy Items
Items that are both cheap and heavy are often not worth moving. The same goes for items that are both cheap and bulky. They are things that you can easily replace at your destination and, in the meantime, you can cut down on the work that your movers have to do.
If you haven't worn a clothing item in over a year, chances are that it's just going to take up space at your new place. Do yourself a favor and get rid of it before your move.
Moving heavy, old furniture costs a lot of money, when you think about it. You will need to buy a bigger truck to fit all of your furniture. And, it takes more money if you need additional lifters to pick up heavy items. Instead, you might want to save your money and get a smaller truck and fewer movers, and then apply your savings to new furniture instead. In other words, a move is a good chance to reevaluate your home's decoration and get rid of extra stuff that has piled up.
What to Do With Stuff You Get Rid Of
It's tempting to hold onto items you may not need, simply because it's the easiest path. However, it doesn't have to be that hard to reorganize your packing. For one, renting a roll-off dumpster can help. That way, you don't have to worry about hauling away garbage yourself. You can enlist a company that accepts all sorts of recycling and sends them to the right facilities. And your hauling company might also be willing to deliver old furniture to a donation facility, or you can hold a garage sale.
For items that you aren't sure you need, a storage facility is a good way to go. You can store the items for a set amount of time, and if you don't need them during the packing/moving interim, it's safe to assume they are items you can let go. That takes some of the pain out of parting with items too quickly.
In short, there are many items that probably don't belong at your new home, and sorting through them is a great way to save on your moving bill!Share
