Planning a Georgina move is a pretty involved process. One of the most important things is planning your budget. There are many things you are going to have to pay for during your move and if you are supporting the costs yourself, you need to make sure you have enough to cover everything. Here are some costs that you should keep in mind when planning your move budget.
Deposits and Utilities
When activating your utilities at your new home, there may be start-up costs involved. This is particularly true if you are moving a long distance and cannot keep the same utility company. You may be planning on using the return of your security deposits from your previous home, but the timing of it might not work out. Plan ahead by making sure that you can cover these costs before you move so that your home has all of the things it needs before you move into your new home.
Sometimes the timing of your move doesn’t quite work out right. If this is the case you may need to invest in a storage facility or container for a few months. Having some money set aside for the costs of storage, as well the as the cost of moving things out of storage, can help if you get stuck not being able to move all the things that you need to, when you want to.
If you are planning on packing yourself, this can be a big one. Packing supplies are a large moving investment even though it is just boxes, tape and bubble wrap. To ensure that you have enough cover the cost of your move, take a look at all of your things well in advance of beginning to pack. You can spread out the cost of packing materials over time by packing what you don’t need first and well in advance of your move. This is also a great way to avoid packing at the last minute.
While you might be tempted, don’t skip out on quality packing materials. If you do, you may wind up breaking many of your things and having to replace the essential ones.
While this isn’t a cost that you have to cover, it really is good form to tip your movers just like you would any other quality workman who was doing a job for you. Generally speaking 20-30 dollars for a full day or 10-15 for a partial day is a good round number to use as a guideline. It may not be necessary, but it will show your movers you appreciate their hard work and effort in making your move go as smoothly as they could.
