Moving on a Budget

It is not easy (or cheap!) to transfer your lifelong possessions from one place to another so the planning stages prior to relocating, especially budgeting for the move, are essential.

Successfully budgeting for a move begins with an accurate moving estimate. An accurate estimate depends on various factors such as the size and weight of the items you need to move, how far you will be moving them, how much valuation coverage you will need, and whether you will need help to ensure safe packing and loading for transport.

Finding a moving company that offers options to fit your budget is important. For example, you may be looking for a traditional moving van with skilled moving professionals to do the packing, loading, unloading and unpacking or you may simply be looking for packing materials and tips to guide you through the best way to complete a self-move.

One possibility when budgeting for a move is using a large durable container which offers a very flexible moving container option. These specialized containers are built for safety, security, and ease of use. For the packing and loading stages, be as hands-on as you like—you can do it all, professional Atlas agents can help, or these professionals can do it all for you.

The best way to budget for your move is to be aware of how much professional help you will want, how much you are willing to spend, and to find a moving company that offers flexible moving solutions.
