Cost of Moving Takes a Toll on Your Wallet

The stress of switching rentals can be burdensome for a number of reasons, but the tax it can take to your wallet is one of the biggest issues many people face when moving into new homes. According to Zillow, US Census stats have shown that “19 million American households pack up and move every year.”

Back in 2010, the World Wide Relocation Association reported that the average professional move would cost roughly $12,230. Zowza! Factors that can become costly when moving include the distance of the move, packing supplies and/or services, and professional movers or rentals. When hiring professionals for the move, the price of the move obviously rises quite a bit, and the weight of your items could actually be measured on a scale system. Be sure to check to moving company’s system and request an estimate before moving forward with the move. If you’re limited on moving expenses, you can always opt to call a few friends who have larger vehicles and are willing and able to lift heavy furniture.
