There are solutions for moving at a lower cost and in complete safety, improving the ecological balance of the operation.
Advice and tips
1 Sort before packing
To reduce the cost and carbon footprint of a move, it's best to start several weeks in advance by sorting out what you want to take with you and getting rid of anything you no longer need (furniture, equipment, clothes, books...). To get rid of them, contact the recycleries and associations potentially interested, such as Emmaus, but also the Envie network (Envie. Org), especially for household appliances, Rejoué (repoue.asso.fr).for toys, bibliothèques sans frontieres (bibliosansfrontiéres.org) or even (recyclivre.com ).
2 Make sure you are well equipped on the cardboard side:
Moving an 80M home represents, on average, a volume of 30 to 40 m³. Once the furniture and equipment have been deducted, 15 to 18 standard boxes are needed for 1 m³, they take twice as much for the books... which is a good package! What you can get from local shops or a recycling centre may not be enough.
So, to avoid ruining yourself and limit waste, think about reuse boxes, available in whole batches on the donnons.org and toutdonner.com websites.
3 Transporting at low cost
Reduce the carbon footprint of your move and its cost by sharing your transport truck. This is possible with groupage, a solution offered by many professionals. The result is a saving of up to 75%.
Finally, if you are moving yourself, our Webtransportdeal.com platform offers you solutions in this respect, with the rental of commercial vehicles for a one-way trip with a driver, which is less expensive than a return trip and avoids having to return home with an empty vehicle;
