3 Overlooked Ways People Lose Money When They Move to Hollywood Florida and How to Avoid It

Having to move to a new home always translates to large costs and a lot of time spent planning and preparing.  Regardless of the costs of moving, all of us still do it for the hope of a new start and a better life.

When you have to go through a move, there are a few things you should take note of to ensure that you don’t go overboard on your moving budget. There are lots of small things that everybody overlooks and these can cost you more than you think. Here are a few things you should NOT do when looking for a Hollywood moving company.

  • Finding and booking the Hollywood moving company at the last minute

You need to give yourself a lot of time to prepare for your move. Give yourself at minimum of 6 weeks so that you can compare different companies, check out their services, and see which one has the best deal. More time is better — 8 weeks in advance seems to be a good time for most people.

The less time you give yourself for booking, the more likely it is that you end up settling for whatever you can take, even if it is a truck that is too big for your needs — which also fattens up the bill.

For those of you that have really need to move in a short time frame, you’ll have very little choice in choosing a Hollywood moving company. But even though you are short of time, try to get at least 3 different quotes through the phone so you have some options.

  • Planning your move during summer

A lot of us don’t have the luxury of choosing when to move but you can at least see to it that you move at the right time. If you can help it, do not schedule your move during summer as it the busiest month for movers.

But if you really have no choice but to move during summer, try to get a weekday as these are slightly cheaper and more likely to be available. You’ll also need to book even farther in advance to ensure you get an availability and so that you leave yourself more room for negotiating. Make sure to check in with your movers 4 weeks before the move to make sure everything is running according to schedule. Some Hollywood moving companies may overbook during summer which can cause delays. Checking in with them once in a while helps avoid that.

  • Forget to ask about additional fees

Some people simply assume that the quoted estimate is the final price. In some occasions, it is but you shouldn’t bank on it as additional fees can pile on if things don’t go according to plan. Be sure to ask what services could be needed.

Let your Hollywood moving company know if you have stairs or not — especially if you live in a condo or high-rise apartment. Be sure to keep a parking space open for the moving truck for both the pickup and destination and simply ask about the conditions of additional fees.

If you’re renting a moving truck, find out if mileage is included and if its, how much is covered. Get insurance information as well so you know just what you are paying for.
