For whatever reason, at some point in one’s life, we’ve had to move. Whether it be across town, state or the country, moving can be an exciting experience, yet, stressful and expensive. Coronado Mobile Storage is here with some helpful tips on how to transition without breaking the bank. Hopefully, these tips will help alleviate some of the stress and expenses that come with this major life change.

Before you start packing things up, reduce and de-clutter. No better time to decide what items are must-haves and those you do not need. You can either have a yard sale or consider getting a tax deduction by donating unnecessary items. Instead of renting or buying packing materials such as moving blankets, bubble wrap and packing peanuts, to protect your belongings, simply reuse your personal blankets, towels and other linens. Another packing tip is to find free used boxes at your local stores or Craigslist. No need to buy cardboard boxes from a moving company if at possible.

When it comes time for moving day, enlist the help of family and friends to help you pack up. This eliminates the expense of a professional moving crew. Using mobile storage units from Coronado Mobile Storage in San Diego will help you save money and time cutting the going back and forth time and trips in half. After a unit is delivered to your residence, you and your crew merely pack it up, and at your convenience, CMS will haul the container to its Chula Vista storage facility or your new destination.

Consider your move an opportunity to start off anew! Keeping a few dollars in the bank during the experience should help make the fresh start all that much better.
