Did you know a moving sale can help you save money as well as make money? Lightening the load of your move lowers your shipping costs. Turn your unwanted items into cash. Lower your moving costs by reducing the weight of your load. Attract a buyer for your old home.
Moving is a great excuse to de-clutter and simplify your life. While you want to take your favorite furniture, heirlooms, and kitchen essentials, you don’t need to keep dragging around old clothes and unwanted knickknacks.
As the local moving company near you, we recommend now is a good time to decide what you want to take with you to your new house and what needs to be sold, donated, or thrown away. Our movers recommend using the one-year rule. If you haven’t used or worn something in the last year, it’s time to toss it. Any items or clothing in good condition can be sold or donated. For moves down the street to across the country, ACE is there with miles of experience.
We suggest you invest in sturdy moving supplies, especially if you plan to pack yourself. This means durable cardboard boxes that are easily stackable and come in a variety of sizes.
While it’s tempting to raid your local grocery store or other businesses for leftover boxes, it’s best to make an investment in professional packing supplies. Pre-used boxes that aren’t intended for packing heavy items could bottom out, be prone to further damage, or be hard to fit together once packed in a car or moving truck.
During your move, if you ever find yourself in a position where you need to throw away the canned food in your pantry, DON’T! The best way to get rid of your unwanted food items is to get involved with a food bank or food drives that will accept your donations. Ace Moving & Storage participates in Move for Hunger, which is an organization that works with relocation companies to help fill the pantries of food banks across the United States. Any participating mover will pack up your food and deliver it to your local food bank. Minimize your inventory while helping families in need!
When you consider giving items away, be sure to focus on who might want them. Don’t try to saddle the kids, family members or neighbors with items they really don’t need or will just stash in a closet themselves. Instead, give unclaimed pieces to charities or recycling locations.
Most people accumulates a large amount of “stuff” throughout their lifetime. Sometimes, though, getting rid of items is a good thing. No matter if you sell items, give them away, or just toss them in the trash, one thing is clear: you’ll be starting over fresh in your new home if you do not bring it with you. And that’s truly worthwhile!
