Costs You Should Not Forget to Budget for the Move
If you want to truly be prepared for your move, then you should also be prepared with ample budget too. To be able to do so, you should also be able to anticipate all possible expenses. So while you need to make a to-do list you also have to list down all expenses.
You should start with the most obvious expenses. For one, you should list down the removals company fees. And if you are packing your things yourself, you should also budget for the packing materials. Then you would have to transport yourself as well. If you are driving you have to budget for the fuel, meals and other miscellaneous expenses. If you are staying in a hotel overnight, you should also budget for it. On the other hand, if you are going by air you should budget for airfare as well. If you are going to rent a car from the airport, budget for it too.
Aside from meals, you should really not forget to bring nibbles for in between meals. You should also have lots of water. And so you need to budget for these too. If you have pets, they need their own supplies as well.
Of course, you also have to clean your current home. If you want to get your security deposit in full, then you are better off getting some cleaning services to get the place well cleaned. If you are selling the house, you also need to fix it up to make it more attractive for potential buyers. When you buy or rent new homes, additional expenses are even needed too.
And lastly, you may also want to get additional insurance for your things especially if you have some valuables.
