Moving expenses you should plan for

Moving home or office in Johannesburg can involve additional costs, sometimes unplanned for by first time movers.  While your moving company cost will depend greatly on the distance of your move, as well as the size of your home, here is a list of moving expenses you need to budget for:

  1. Deposit on your new home: whether you are buying or renting, plan for that deposit.
  2. Packing supplies: boxes, tape, box cutters, labels, bubble wrap, newsprint, rope, twine, felt pads and basic cleaning supplies.
  3. Transportation: for yourself and your belongings.
  4. Removals: whether you are handling the move yourself, or hiring a moving company like us, consider these additional costs.
  5. Storage: if you are not moving into your new house immediately, it may be necessary to put some of your belongings into storage. It’s important to shop around for the best storage quotes which also provide the added service of insuring your belongings. Here are some of our favourites here.
  6.  Utilities: Moving your cable and internet comes at a cost.
