Moving may not seem like it should cost much, but when you factor in the cost of moving companies , packing supplies, traveling costs, and so many more hidden expenses, you may soon feel overwhelmed. If you are doing an office or corporate relocation in New York City, then you have even more costs to consider, such as employee pay. To save yourself some stress, and lower your risk of going over budget, here are some simple steps to creating a moving budget:
- Determine how much you can really spend on moving and storage costs. Once you have a definite number in mind, you can start planning out the budget.
- Divide the budget into separate categories. Your categories might include packing supplies, moving companies, employee travel expenses, storage costs, and many more. By having these categories laid out, you can better see and allocate where your budget will be throughout the move.
- Always keep some leftover money in the budget for unseen costs. These costs may come from an employee lunch you had not planned or extra moving costs. By having some wiggle room in your budget, you are less likely to go over it.
