HOW TO CUT LONG DISTANCE MOVING COST

The cost of moving long distances either across California or into the US is going to fall outside the classification of a “local moving”. Your possessions are going to be in transit for several days, in some rare cases even weeks. But the good news is that there are ways to how to cut long distance moving cost, from Los Angeles to anywhere else in the United States, and we prepared some tips for you below.

1. Cut The Movers’ Burden

There are associated charges that relate to extra work what moving teams have to do such as setting up and operating hoists for heavy items or shuttling up and down an elevator. Bringing boxes to the ground floor yourself can reduce labor and, therefore, these charges significantly. However, some heavy items should be left to the professionals.

2. Lower The Weight

Long distance moving costs are based on weight and cubic feet rather than hours of labor. Thus, lowering the weight of your consignment will save you money. Sell unwanted furniture, give items away to charity and have a yard sale to clear what is not needed.

3.Drive Your Car Or Sell It

If you don’t like driving long distances, you may be contemplating shipping your car on separately – but is this really necessary? When the move is very long distance – like moving from Los Angeles to New York or anywhere else in the US – you can expect to pay thousands of dollars more. Save this cash by driving yourself, or selling the car and getting a new one in your new city.

4. Speak To Your Moving Coordinator

A reputable moving company will have a moving coordinator that works closely with you to ensure that everything runs smoothly. Speak to the moving coordinator about what other things can be done to lower the overall costs. At Moving Company Los Angeles, our expert movers are happy to help you.

5. Check Out Available Tax Breaks

You can claim back as much as half your long distance moving costs when completing your tax returns. There are conditions, of course, not least that the purpose of the move is for work, to establish a business or to study at university. Among the expenses that can be claimed back on are traveling expenses (fuel, meals, and accommodation), storage costs, and property-related legal fees.
