Reducing The Impact Of Inflation On Your Move
Tuesday Jul 26, 2022

According to the Bureau of Labor Statistics, the annual consumer price index in the U.S. accelerated to 9.1% in June 2022, the highest it’s been since November 1981. This level of inflation impacts every aspect of our economy, including the moving industry. To deal with the rising costs, here are some of the things we’re doing and some things you can do when you’re moving. 


Passing Along Costs Savings to You

At Advance Relocation Systems, we’ve been exploring our options for reducing both our overhead costs and costs that get passed down to our customers. One method has been the Atlas fuel program. Through our relationship with Atlas Van Lines, we are able to buy fuel at subsidized rates at their major recharge stations. We’ve also been working with some new vendors to deliver the same quality services for less.   


Customized Solutions for Special Products

When you’re moving special products, such as artwork or delicate equipment, we can offer customized solutions to save you money. Depending on the distance of your move and the size of your shipment, we offer flexibility in the services you can choose from. We provide quotes for full-service moves and you can select the level of services to manage costs. For example, you may choose to self-pack or use a driver and helper instead of two drivers. For shorter trips, we can provide a non-climate-controlled truck instead of a climate-controlled trailer. We sell the services you require to have a successful move, not more than you need.


“We don't sell to take advantage of somebody, we sell to be an asset to somebody.” - David Hillemann, VP of Sales and Marketing, Advance Relocation Systems.
