Moving in Costs You Need to Be Aware Of
Relocating by yourself is affordable. However, if you are moving a ton of items, you might want to consider hiring a moving service.
Apart from the time-consuming, relocating costs you some money. The cost of moving varies widely and can get pricey too, that is why you need a special budget to avoid skyrocketed spending as well as doing some research to know what to expect.
While hiring professional movers can help you save a lot of energy and make moving easier, you can actually risk drowning your financial planning if you do not carefully plan a budget for hiring a moving company.
Here is an estimation of how much you can expect when relocating with a moving company according to Leopold Djapari, Deputy Director of Rajapindah.com,
According to him, the moving rate of 17 CBM x IDR 250,000 = IDR 4,250,000 with reference to your number of goods that are around 17 m3 (rounded up 17 CBM)
The estimated price includes the services, packing materials, boxes, and a fuso truck vehicle (for a capacity of 20 CBM). But remember, when you are moving across cities, an extra trucking fee will be billed.
Relocating without moving services is usually considered more affordable. However, if you are moving a ton of items from your old house to your new house, you have to think about the costs that you have to spend on your car fuel because you have to transport goods back and forth. Be realistic in making decisions, make sure to decide on options that fit your plan and budget.
