It is no secret that moving is a stressful event. Moving requires a lot of planning and preparations. One of the first decisions that has to be made when moving is to decide if you will be moving on your own by renting a moving truck, from a company, such as U-Haul, or if you are going to hire a moving company.
When renting a moving van, truck, or trailer there are certain steps that should be followed to make the rental experience easier. If you reserve the moving truck online, verify where you are picking up and returning the truck. Before driving the moving truck off of the lot, make sure to visually inspect the vehicle for broken lights, leaks or other damages. It is also very important to have a packing strategy for your move as well as packing a moving truck. In order to save time and money when renting a truck, have everything that you are moving ready to go the day of the truck rental. If you plan ahead, you can save money on gas, mileage, and time when you are renting.
Make sure that you get the size of the U-Haul that you need for your belongings. If you only have a few items, then you will not need a large moving truck. The key is to plan ahead thinking of what you need to move as well as being creative and concise in packing the moving truck. It is crucial to pack the truck correctly to utilize every space and to protect your belongings during transit.
Sometimes you might just need to move your items into a storage unit. Storage World offers a free move-in truck at participating facilities for first-time renters. Find out more about this offer when you rent your storage unit at one of our 3 Atlanta area storage facilities.
By following simple moving and packing tips, you can fit everything that you need to in your moving truck and make the moving experience much easier. There will always be surprise set-backs on moving day, but if you know that you have planned as much ahead that you can then, you will be much happier.
