One of the best tips for lowering moving costs is to pack and organize. It sounds simple, but you would be surprised how fast moving day sneaks up on you. By packing all of your small or loose items into sealed boxes you are cutting down clutter. Smaller items actually slow down your moving team.
One way to help reduce clutter is to donate or sell any items you haven't used in a while or don't really need. Use local charitable organizations, garage sales and online classifieds to pare down as much as possible before your move.
