How to save money on your Colorado moving experience

Moving is expensive, no matter how you handle it. There’s the down payment or security deposit to pay on your new home, packing materials to purchase, and Denver moving companies to get quotes from. These things take time and money that you could use to cover new furniture or finishing touches on your new home. The more money you can save, the better off you’ll be, but where do you even start? Here are a few simple tips to make saving money on your move as simple as possible.

Shop Around for Moving Companies

Some moving companies charge more than others, but the only way you’ll know is to shop around. Ask for quotes from multiple companies. This way, you’ll be able to choose your movers based on price. That said, it’s not always a good idea to pick your movers on price alone. Instead, choose the movers you’re most comfortable with. Remember, they’ll be transporting your belongings to your new home. The last thing you want is to choose a low-quality company that won’t do everything they can to take care of your stuff.

Get Rid of Junk and Clutter

Moving estimates are determined by the amount of stuff you plan on moving. The easiest way to cut your moving costs is to decrease the number of items you plan on moving. Go through your house and get rid of clutter and junk. Host a garage sale, donate usable items to charity, and offer old books to the local library. If that’s still not enough, you can always plan on moving some things yourself. The fewer boxes and pieces of furniture the mover’s transport, the lower your costs will be.

Look for Free Packing Materials Instead of Buying New

New cardboard moving boxes are surprisingly expensive. Instead of heading to the store and spending hundreds of dollars on new boxes, look for free options. Check with local stores to see if they have any old boxes they’re willing to part with. Ask your friends and family if there are boxes collecting dust in their garages. Instead of using new bubble wrap and packing paper, start saving newspapers and plastic grocery bags. When balled up, these can pad fragile items inside boxes and containers just as effectively.

Pack Everything Yourself

If you’re hiring movers, you’ll have the option to let them pack your belongings or do it yourself. Though professional packing services are convenient, they will make a move more expensive—Saver yourself a few hundred dollars by packing the boxes yourself. The movers will still load and unload the truck for you, sparing you the heavy lifting. But you’ll save money by spending a bit of time packing the house on your own. Need to make the packing process easier? Enlist friends to help or have your kids start packing up their rooms themselves.

No matter where you’re moving, saving money is always a priority. Contact us to schedule a free moving estimate and see just how affordable our moving services can be.

These guys were great. Very careful with my furniture and they were quick. Not one ding on the walls either. I highly recommend them. I will be using them again in the future.

I don't know what to say other than thanks Eden's! They helped me move twice now and both were smooth as you can expect a move to be. A broken cup or two but what do you expect, they moved my stuff across state lines and I have broken more moving myself, that is just part of the process. They were great about going over the coverage options too to ensure I was covered for any damages. Always get insurance for a move! Thanks again Eden's, I will recommend you to anyone!

The movers showed up on time, and did an amazing job dealing with some very difficult pieces of furniture. They moved things that I thought would be impossible to move. They worked hard and fast and were very careful with my walls nothing was scratched. Good work! Thanks!!

Highly recommended movers! We hired Edens movers for a local move in Lakewood CO and they did an outstanding job. The movers were professional and friendly and the entire move went smoothly without any trouble. From the start they were organized and clear and the price was more than fair. Thank you for your great job!

Best prices and great to work with. You have to wait a little bit longer for your stuff but they were very upfront about the time frame, gave us a range, and called a few days ahead of time. Our move was difficult because our stuff was in storage (we had already moved and due to another moving company dropping the ball we could not get back to finalize boxing everything up). They did a great job once they arrived organizing our stuff in storage carefully. I would highly recommend.

Save yourself the time and trouble of trying to do it yourself or hiring questionable movers - I fully recommend Eden's Moving Services to anyone who needs professional moving services!

My household has used Edens four times now with perfect results. The moved a massive Piano off the second floor – safe and quick. I hired them again with my recent long-distance move. The crew showed up on time, they were quick and careful with my stuff, and they made sure everything got placed where I'd need it.. Great experience once again. Will definitely use them again. extremely recommended.
