Homebuyer Tips: Preparing For Moving Day - Service First Mortgage

You’ve finally signed the final paperwork to close on your dream home. Now that you’ve officially become a homeowner, it’s time to start thinking about the moving process.

Are you financially prepared for moving costs and fees? As you prepare for your move, consider these three factors that can affect your moving fees.

Moving Services

When you are preparing for the big move, you should be aware of the estimated cost of your move. Moving can be costly if you would like the movers to wrap/pack your belongings, load your belongings onto the moving truck, and unload everything into your new home. Be aware of the pick-up and drop-off location, some moving companies may charge extra fees due to pick-up or drop-off difficulties.

Moving Date

Another way to prepare for your moving day will be to choose the best time to move. Most moving companies may increase their rates during the summer versus the winter. Moving rates typically decrease around September to mid-May. Rates also increase during holiday seasons and the first/last day of each month.

Moving Insurance

To ensure your peace of mind, you should purchase basic moving insurance to protect your belongings. Many individuals may feel that this is a waste of money, but it will come in handy if your belongings are lost or damaged.
