Don't Be Scared of Moving Costs: Be Informed!
Any major life event can cause a little anxiety, but for some people, it can quickly spiral out of control. Will my priceless treasures be broken during the move? Will something be mislaid, and I'll never find it again? What about the cost -- will I be able to afford to do everything I need to do with my home after the move or will unexpected expenses eat through my budget? The good news is that while there are always costs that you can't account for, if you're able to nail down the major expenses there should be little need to be scared of going way over budget for your next move.
Get It In WritingThere are always good, honest people in the world, and if you're fortunate, you will deal with them during your move. Unfortunately, there are a few businesses and individuals who do not have your best interests at heart, so it is important to get all estimates or contracted services detailed in writing and agreed upon by both parties. Quoting over the internet is perfectly acceptable for services such as providing car insurance, but movers should come to your home to check out what you've got before providing an estimate for moving your household goods.
