Moving Tips And Advice – Things To Consider Before Renting A Moving Van

by Edmonton Storage Guy

Most people don’t get rid of everything they own and start over from scratch when they move, which means that you’re going to have to bring in some outside help, whether it be a full-scale moving crew or a rented moving van.

You’ll need to review both the contents of your home and the size of your budget before deciding which option is the right one for you. You should also take into account how much time you’re willing to devote to your move, and whether or not you have any physical impairments that would make it difficult or dangerous for you to do a lot of heavy lifting.

Once you’ve decided what kind of service is best for you, you’ll need to make a list of how many rooms are in your home, and how many boxes and how much furniture you’ll be moving. This will help you get more accurate estimates from the companies you contact.

Remember that a moving estimate is just that, though; if you’re hiring a full-service company, they’ll need to come out and take a look for themselves before giving you a final moving quote. If you’re just getting the truck a home visit won’t be necessary, but it will be up to you to make an accurate accounting to ensure you don’t end up with too much or too little space.

Use local and online resources to check out the reputations of the companies you’re considering. Ask friends for referrals, and ask the companies themselves for references. Be sure to actually call the people on the reference lists.

It’s very important that you make your reservations early, or you may find yourself scrambling around and settling on an inferior company at the last minute.

Always build some cushion into your budget. Refundable deposits are still an out-of-pocket expense, if only temporarily, and fuel costs can fluctuate wildly, depending on the time of year.
