-Free Moving Van Makes Your Move Seamless
There is nothing more nerve-wracking than moving. From finding a new home and hiring a moving company, to packing all your belongings and changing your address, a move can quickly wear you down. Even with the most thorough planning and list making, it is easy to overlook the molehills that quickly escalate into mountains on moving day.
Keep your move seamless by remembering those “little” things. Then maintain your calm by using a 5A Rent-A-Space self-storage unit near Lafayette for those items that will only clutter your new home. When you rent from us, we will even haul your stuff in our free moving van.
Items to Remember on Your Moving To-Do List
The best-laid strategy only works when all facets are covered. Remember these items and make your action plan stronger:
- Deal with the stuff in your dressers. In the mad frenzy of clearing out closets and packing up dishes, one area that can often get bypassed is your dresser. It is easy to understand since you are probably still using those clothes right up to moving day. A couple of days beforehand, grab a suitcase and pack up a few days worth of clothes. Then empty the rest of your drawers, so your heavy dresser will not be damaged in transit. If you carry it full of stuff, it is possible to break the legs or any fragile items inside.
- Handle parking arrangements for your movers. Avoid waiting until the morning of your move to determine where the movers can park their truck. This includes renting a moving van yourself. You can quickly rack up fines for illegal parking if you fail to plan by reserving parking spots.
- Reserve necessary elevators. If a high-rise apartment is involved, remember to make the needed arrangements to secure elevators. Some buildings may not let you move in or out unless you reserve one. Many times, a service elevator is allotted and will be protected by padding or blankets.
- Label your packed boxes according to the room. Congratulations! Now, it is time to unpack. Imagine picking up the first box only to realize it belongs in the bathroom instead of the bedroom. You suddenly find that you have to play a game of musical boxes before you can make your new house a home. Nip this fiasco in the bud by labeling each box with the room that it belongs in. Don’t forget to mark them “fragile” as appropriate.
