You are about to move to your new home, and it’s everything you have ever wanted, or maybe a transfer and new opportunities are the reason behind the move. You are panicking and don’t know where to start. You have to bundle up everything you own into a truck and set off. Still, you don’t want to break anything or lose valuable, sentimental things. Whatever it is, moving can be chaotic, and doing it alone might weigh you down.
This post will give you some tips to assist your moving process. These include how to choose moving service providers. Consider getting help from experienced movers. They may be the oldest moving company, highly rated movers, or referrals. A good option would be to choose movers with pack and go storage.
Additionally, some things may not fit in one go, and a mobile storage dealer may come in handy. There is also the question of ‘’I’m moving when should I change my address?’ A week before the move is ideal, so you don’t miss your mail. Here are some great tips on moving.
If you are moving somewhere and plan to never look back, (at least with all your belongings that is), one way moving truck rental may be the way to go. Just like booking a one way plane ticket, one way moving truck rental transports your belongings from point A to point B, but does not return to its original storage facility.
Just like standard two way moving truck services, one way moving truck rental services typically come with fixed rates depending on the length of time you need them, the mileage they will travel, and the size of the truck itself. There are few moving services that solely offer one way moving truck rental, so shop around at multiple locations before making your decision.
A few tips when searching for a one way moving truck rental (or two way, if need be):
First, determine the size truck you will need.
Assess how many larger pieces like dressers, beds, or desks you will need moved, how many boxes you have, etc. Some agencies use a fixed rate based on mileage, others based on size, so be sure to search around for an appropriate fit for both your budget and your belongings.
Call between 3 to 5 agencies.
Calling an agency for a quote does not marry you to them, so explore all of your options. Use recommendations from friends or customer review websites, and call to get a quote. Be sure to include specifics and details of your move, such as distance, time of the week, and things that will need moving. Some agencies charge more on weekends than week days, by the mile, or amount of man power needed. The more they know, the easier it will be to quote you.
In one way moving truck rental, or two way, be sure to thoroughly inspect your vehicle before signing the agreement. Assess for any previous damage done to the vehicle, the amount of gas and mileage that it already has, and record it. Taking the time to do this will protect you against any unwanted insurance or damage issues.
Wherever the move, be sure to put some extra research into the company you choose. Remember, these are your belongings, so the extra research will help ensure their safe arrival at your new destination.
