An average person who lives as a renter tends to move at least 4-5 times around the city in search of better facilities. Packing and unpacking may be one of the most tiring activities but if you are moving frequently then that should be your least concern. Moving requires transportation of all the assets from one place to another and hence one usually hires people for packing, loading-unloading, and transfer trucks in order to do so. Individual payment for all these can cost a person around 50,000 that is if you are moving to a nearby area. If your new place is somewhere far away then the moving cost can exceed more than that. Hence saving your moving cost must be your priority.

Here are few things that can make your moving cost economical

  1. Find as many free boxes as possible before moving

Moving boxes aren’t cheap! Before you start packing, seek out free moving supplies from various stores, online marketplaces, community groups, and friends. Not only is the process of finding free boxes easy, but it’s also a surefire way to save hundreds of rupees on moving expenses.

  1. Choose a cheaper date and time to move

One of the easiest ways to save money during a move is to simply choose the right moving date. When hiring a professional moving company, the date and time can make all the difference when it comes to the ease of your relocation. People tend not to move during the mid-week and mid-month days (As full payment needs to be made to the current tenant after the start of the month no matter what the situation). This makes these moving companies out of customers during these days and therefore, your costs will likely be lower as well. will find you the best nearby packers & movers at an affordable cost.

  1. Research for multiple mover companies.

Before officially hiring personnel from a moving company, make sure you’ve researched and bargained from at least three potential movers. Each estimator should conduct either an in-person inspection or a video survey of your belongings before giving you an affordable rate. Remember: if you’re moving out-of-city or long distance, the move’s cost will be determined by the weight of your things and the distance to be covered. So be sure to tell the estimator which items you will and won’t be moving to ensure the most accurate price possible.

  1. Pack everything yourself

While hiring professional packers can certainly speed up the moving process, it can also weigh it down in terms of cost. Hiring professional packers can get expensive costing upwards of several thousand rupees. If you are in need of a packing company anyway always remember that packing rates vary from moving company to moving company. So make sure to ask how much they charge per hour per mover and how long those packing services typically take.

  1. Enlist friends for a Do Yourself move

Hiring movers is expensive. In fact, according to Movers and packers Nepal, the average cost of a local household is 12,000 for 4 movers at 3,000 per hour. If you’re on a tight budget, then embarking on a DIY move may be the best choice for you. I suggest enlisting friends and family to help with the move so that you don’t have to do all the heavy lifting yourself and can save a huge amount of money along with effective packing without the use of professionals.

  1. Removing unnecessary items before packing

Whether you’re downsizing or simply looking to arranging to get rid of your unused items is one of the easiest ways to cut costs during a move. By eliminating unworn clothing, out-of-date electronics, and unnecessary furniture, your move will weigh less – making the relocation less expensive when hiring a moving company.
