09 Nov How to optimize your long-distance move?
Are you moving more than 200 miles away? It is important to think about optimizing all the costs of the trip. Indeed, a long-distance move can be very expensive if you don’t look for ways to save on gas, tolls, etc. With more flexibility on the dates and with good organization, it is possible to move cheaply with the least amount of stress.
Be part of several moves
When you move alone, it is very unlikely that you will find another person moving to the same place and time as you. This makes a long distance move quite complicated unless you are moving with several people. At a Geneva moving company, it is possible to group your move together. This will greatly reduce the bill, because the travel costs will be divided among several. It will then be possible to save on petrol, time spent on the road, possible hotel nights, etc. In concrete terms, it is possible to save up to 50% on the usual price.
Companies often take the necessary measures to avoid confusing your furniture during the move. Don’t hesitate to ask for an estimate for a move from Geneva in order to determine the cost of your long-distance move.
A move in the opposite direction: why not?
With the one-way car rental system, it is possible to rent a vehicle without having to bring it back to its point of departure. However, finding a moving company in Geneva that offers this service is quite difficult and the cost is quite expensive. The best thing to do would be to move in the opposite direction in order to save money. For example, if you leave Geneva to go to Zurich on June 12, the mover arrives in Geneva on June 10 to unload your belongings. Then, he loads your furniture on June 12 and you are delivered no later than June 13. It’s practical, fast and cheap.
This allows the mover to make a profit on the outward and return journey. To benefit from a cheap and timely move, this is undoubtedly the best trick with savings of up to 30%.
What are the advantages of grouped moves?
With some movers, it is possible to optimize your move by grouping together several people on the return trip. Logistically, it is a task that requires a little more coordination in order to bring everyone back. However, this allows you to obtain very advantageous prices and to save on your moving bill. Don’t hesitate to ask for a quote for a move in Geneva.
