Making the right choices when it comes to family 2021? An important factor many people overlook is the distance of the move. If you are relocating to a new home in-town or just a short distance away, you may feel comfortable estimating your truck needs on the low end. After all, you can always make two trips if you run out of truck space. On the other hand, if you are making a long distance move, it is not practical to make multiple trips. Estimating on the higher end may be beneficial. If you get in a bind, you can always rent a trailer to tow behind your car for additional space.The steps that you take to prepare for moving day can make or break your overall moving experience. Apply these tips to estimate better the truck size that is suitable for your needs. A moving truck is a necessity when you are relocating. If you hire professional moving services, the moving company will likely bring their vehicle or trailer. However, other moving services will just load and unload a truck or moving container that you rent. There is also the option of loading the truck on your own with the help of family or friends. If you must reserve a moving vehicle for your upcoming relocation, selecting the right size is essential to a smooth and efficient move.
Decluttering before you sell means that you only move what you really need – and you will not only save money by doing so, but you will also save time in the new house by not having to unpack and deal with all that stuff in the future. The following list is a guide that most rental agencies will use to determine the size of truck you’ll need. Just remember that this is a guide only: 26′ will move 4+ bedrooms, 24′ will move 3-4 bedrooms, 17′ will move 2-3 bedrooms, 14′ will move 1-2 bedrooms, 10′ will move a studio or small 1-bedroom apartment.
Place an extra cotton pad or ball into your powder cosmetics to keep them from breaking. Many movers come with insurance, which means if something breaks, they have to compensate you. You might want to weigh the pros and cons though – they won’t want to be responsible for a television that isn’t properly packed in its original box and could end up charging you upward of $150 to pack it as they see fit. Also remember to book them weeks in advance – you’re not the only person trying to get out of your space on the last day of the month.

It’s all wonderful and exciting until you start to think about how much crap you have. If you plan to pack and load your moving truck by yourself or with help from your friends you should defer to a larger truck size. Professional movers are trained to maximize the overall space, whereas those not professionally trained may not be able to achieve the same level of efficiency. If you are considered about space consumption consider hiring moving labor to properly load your truck. Medium truck sizes are best used for 1-2 bedroom apartments as well as small homes. We typically don’t recommend this size to anyone with more than 1200 SqFt of living space. Most small moving trucks have rear wheel wells that stick out and reduce the amount of flat cargo space.
Also worth considering is what you actually have in your new home. Is anything being left (carpets/curtains/furniture etc.), is there fitted storage etc..? For example – if you’re moving from a house with all fitted wardrobes, and the new house has none, then you will need somewhere to hang your clothes asap – you may therefore want to invest in some rails for the interim while you decide on suitable furniture etc. Or if you are leaving the curtains in your old house, you will definitely need some sort of window covering at least on the bedrooms windows in the new house (it may be worth asking them if it’s possible for them to leave certain curtains for you). It will be worth making a shopping list and getting things sorted ahead of time, I’m sure you agree! Once the moving date is confirmed, make a start on packing as soon as you can. Get together a plan of action with a room by room checklist of how you will pack along with all of the packing material you’ll need.
