How can I save some money on my move?

How can I save some money on my move?We have quite a few tips and tricks that can you some time stress and best of all, money on your upcoming move.  You can download our moving guide for more information, but here are some of the tips and tricks for you!

  • Pack up your belongings yourself.  We recommend buying your boxes from us or from a source like UHaul.  Getting free or used boxes may seem like a savings (IE Liquor Store Boxes) but we can move much quicker with uniformed sized boxes as they stack much more efficiently on the truck.  Avoid this at all costs and help your movers!
    • Use Small Boxes for heavier household items such as books, magazines, cds etc
    • Use Medium Boxes for mid weight items like cookware, small appliances, knickknacks and decorations
    • Use Large Boxes only for bigger light weight items like linens and pillows and shoes.  Don’t be tempted to load up a large box with heavy items! We won’t be able to lift it safely or the box will rip open.
    • Be sure to tape and label your belongings with the room they are destined for!
    • Use packing paper instead of bubble wrap or peanuts.  The latter can be very expensive!  Crinkle up your packing paper and use it as a base and in between fragile items.  TIP: If you can hear some glass clinking together, the box needs to be repacked.  It WILL shatter if you can hear glass on glass.
  • Stay Organized!  Cut down on Clutter. The more prepared you are, the quicker and more efficiently we can move
    • By moving odd items like lamp shades, pictures / art, small electronics, lap tops and fragile heirlooms, we can focus on the larger heavier items.  These items take a lot longer to pack on the truck, adding billable time
    • We ask that all jewelry and/or any other items of extraordinary value are moved prior to our crew’s arrival. This ensures safe transit of your most precious belongings and limits liability.
  • Breakdown furniture in advance.  If you have your beds broken down, that treadmill broken down and your sectional couch already broken apart, that can save plenty of billable time, resulting in a cheaper and quicker move for everyone
  • Do you have a lot of items or boxes in your basement?  If you are able to move items neatly into a foyer or garage to cut down on walk time, we can load up or unload much quicker, saving you money on your move.
  • Cut down on the junk!   It is cheaper for us to come out in advance and hire us for our junk removal services than for us to move it into your new home.  We can bring unwanted items to Good Will or the junkyard for you.  If you have time and do not want to pay to have furniture in good condition removed, contact a Good Will, Salvation Army or a Consignment shop to come out and pick it up.  This will cut down on the moving inventory and save you money!

    5 star ratingVery pleased with Suburban Solutions on a small move from suburban Maryland to suburban Virginia. They were on time and took care with the preparations and loading. The processes went incredibly smoothly. It was a good deal and I would use them again.

    We had the most pleasant experience with Suburban Solutions. Our team was professional and handled all our stuff with care. They wrapped all our furniture completely in moving blankets and taped them all around. All our neighbors said they never saw a moving company wrap furniture like that and were impressed. Our on site manager (who was there from start... read more

  • 5 star ratingWe were moving a 2 bedroom + apartment from Ardmore, PA (suburban Philadelphia) to southern Sussex Cty, DE (Bethany area) with an intermediate stop at our storage unit. We had heard a number of moving company horror stories so we were a bit apprehensive. From our first contact by phone with Suburban Solutions, things could not have gone more smoothly.... read more

    I hate moving. Dread it. Don't like it. Run from it. My wife and I moved our family of four from Philly to the suburbs in mid-August 2021. It was difficult to hire movers. Suburban Solutions was the fourth company I called and they had availability. So I booked them. I was... read more

    5 star ratingSuburban did an outstanding job with a recent pickup and delivery of antique furniture to our house, including moving existing furniture to make room. Communication with the manager about setting up the move was very good, and the crew was careful, efficient, and responsive to all our directions. I will definitely use them again.

    The entire process, from requesting a quote to the actual move, was so easy and professional, thanks to Suburban Solutions' wonderful customer service, sales team, and moving crew. The crew, managed by “Q”, was so professional, efficient, and thoughtful of my personal items, and I can’t thank them enough for their service. They eased my stress and anxiety about... read more

    This is my second move with Suburban Solutions and I can't say enough good things about them as a company. They communicated prior to the move and had me set up for success.

    On the day of the move, there were text alerts prior to my teams arrival that kept me in the loop. My movers Chuck and Ashford arrived on...

  • We used both packing and moving service from South Philadelphia (Point Breeze) to Wallingford, PA. We were really happy with the guys, all of whom were respectful to us and courteous with our things. My wife was especially impressed by how vocal the younger team members were about wanting to learn the right way to do things. Everyone involved... read more

    Can't say enough about this company. Our crew of Vez (spelling might be wrong there), Mike and Mikey were top notch. They were prompt, careful, friendly, and efficient with the move. I've never had close to this pleasant of an experience with movers before, and I'll never use another moving company again. Will absolutely recommend to my friends and family,... read more
