4 Costs Associated With Moving That Most People Overlook

  • Changing your insurance. If you’re buying a house, you’ll need to upgrade from your renter’s insurance policy. If you’re moving across state lines, you may need to buy a new policy entirely. Make sure to factor in these surprise costs in advance.
  • Fees to change utilities. There might be deposit fees involved with switching your utilities and luxury services like cable and internet. Check these out beforehand as well.
  • Cleaning fees. Whether you’re investing in a professional cleaning company to clean your old place or you’re cleaning it yourself, you’ll have to spend something on supplies or services.
  • Tipping movers. Many people relocating from one place to another don’t take gratuities to movers into consideration, but it is an appreciated gesture for a job well done. If you’re unsure of the appropriate amount to tip, 10% of your contract price is ideal.
