Moving is a bit of a big deal, to put it lightly. One of the reasons for this being the case, aside from changing where you currently live, is that there are several costs with moving.

Moving is not always affordable, especially if you have already saved and used the money you have to buy a house. It is understandable to wonder how you can afford to pay for basic moving expenses.

Read this informative guide on how to pay for basic moving expenses!

Basic Moving Expenses to Anticipate

When you are moving residences, there are quite a few different expenses that you should anticipate. You can save money on these moving expenses by exercising strong frugality, but some costs may still be high no matter how you choose to go about things.

Regardless, the moving bill can get pretty high, fairly quickly and easily.

Some of the most common basic moving expenses can include (but are not limited to):

  • Moving insurance
  • Professional movers
  • Moving truck rental
  • Packing supplies (boxes, bubble wrap, packing paper, etc.)
  • Moving equipment (hand trucks, dollies, etc.)
  • Tips for your professional movers
  • Storage unit rental
  • Food and drinks for friends and family who are helping you move
  • Portable moving containers (such as PODS)
  • Travel (gas for your vehicle and others, air fare, hotel, toll fees, preventative vehicle maintenance, etc.)

Pay for Your Move with a Title Loan from LoanMart

The average move might end up costing around $1,250, if it is only a local move. If you are planning to move a long distance from where you currently live (like across the country), the cost might be just shy of $5,000.

These numbers are certainly nothing to be scoffed at, and additional funding to supplement what you already saved towards your move may be needed.

However, there is the perfect solution available to help you get the funding you need to move: a title loan with LoanMart1!

A title loan is a type of loan that uses the equity of your vehicle to make funding available. Eligibility for this type of loan is determined mainly by your ability to repay the loan and your vehicle’s equity.

When it comes to title loans with LoanMart, the way it works is that if you get accepted for receiving a title loan we sign onto the title of your vehicle as a lienholder while you repay the loan1.

Once you have paid back everything you owe to LoanMart in full, we will remove our name from the title and return it to you.

Many people come to LoanMart for their title loan needs because we could help them cover big expenses—like moving—in almost no time at all1. Often, customers of ours receive their loan funds in as little as one business day3.

Furthermore, we work closely with each client on an individual basis to formulate the perfect repayment plan for them based on their budget, monthly income, and other financial needs1.

We understand as well as anyone that no two clients are alike. Every customer has unique needs that require unique terms and rates. There is no “on size fits all” attitude here. Plus, if there is ever a problem, we work with the individual client to quickly resolve the issue.

One of the best parts about working with LoanMart however is that you get to keep and drive your vehicle just as you did before you had your loan, as long as payments are made on time. You do not have to worry about losing reliable transportation—not all title loan lenders provide this perk. LoanMart only uses your vehicle’s title as the collateral, not the vehicle itself.
