$$ -Save money on your rental equipment by avoiding the weekend rush and especially try to avoid the end of the month when apartment leases expire.
$$ -Typically, Sunday through Thursday offers greater equipment availability at a better cost. Plus, banks, utilities and government offices are open.
$$ -Prior to your move, check out the U-Haul Moving Supplies Packing Planner to help you determine how many boxes you will need. Buy more boxes and supplies than you think you might need as U-Haul has a 100 percent buyback guarantee on all boxes and moving supplies.
$$ -If you are making a one-way move, be sure to take advantage of the free month of self-storage offer. Customers can utilize the free storage before or after a one-way move.
$$ -Protect your belongings! The last expense you want to incur is replacing your personal belongings because they were damaged due to poor packing. Protect your items by using the proper moving supplies, such as biodegradable U-Haul packing peanuts, bubble wrap, or U-Haul furniture pads made from recycled denim.
$$ -Consider renting a trailer instead of a rental truck. Trailers are more affordable as you will save money on gas. Plus, with an in-town move, you only pay a daily rental rate and don’t have to pay any mileage fees.
$$ -Prior to moving, look into your homeowner’s insurance policy, as some policies will cover belongings while moving as long as the insurance policy is in use during the move.
