How to rent the right moving truck while relocating?

In case you’re not hiring professional moving services, you have to rent a truck
all by yourself. There are two important factors that need to be considered in this case. One is how long you will go and how much of space do you need. Mentioned below are a few tips for renting the right storage truck.

  1. Decide how much time you require the truck for – You need to not only determine the duration  of the travel but you have to take the route into consideration as well. This will then help you select the right kind of truck for the right rental.
  2. Talk to the rental agencies – Select about 5 rental agencies and decide on the best one. It is not necessary that the cheapest will be the best. Therefore, think properly and decide on the best alternative and ask if there are discounts available. Generally if you rent a truck at a specific time like a festive season or any other occasion, you are likely to get discounts.
  3. Reserve your truck – After selecting the right agency, go online and reserve your truck at least 2 weeks prior to your actual move. There may be seasonal discounts that you need to take note of.
  4. Provide all the necessary details to the agency - The agency people are mostly concerned with the timing and the destination of your travel. They will also want to know when you’ll be returning the vehicle to them.
  5. Check the vehicle thoroughly - Before signing the contract, make it a point to check the vehicle thoroughly. Check for any scratches or breakage as you have to keep all your belongings in the truck. If you are driving the vehicle, make sure you have your driver’s license and all the other documents in place.

Keep the above tips in mind before you rent a moving truck while relocating.

How important is self storage for roommates?

Moving in with a room partner is one of the hardest things in life. Up till now
you have been living with your own parents in your own home. All of a sudden, things are changing. You can’t simply put on loud music at 2 am in the night or have a bath for two hours. You have to adjust with your roommate in every matter right from dining and cleaning to washing of clothes and storage. Below mentioned are a few reasons why self storage is important for roommates.

  1. Storage is one of the most important things you need to discuss with your room partner. Chances are great that the things owned by both of you will be overlapping. For example, if your room partner gets a rug, you too may get a rug and so on. That’s when you need to sit down with her and discuss what item needs to be stored and what needs to be in the house. 
  2. You need to get your way out of excessive clutter. Since the two of you are residing in a single apartment, you may be crunched for space. That’s when sorting out all the important things in a place and keeping the rest in a storage unit works. In this way, your house doesn’t look cluttered and is compact and nice. That’s when a storage facility works wonders for you and your roommate.
  3. Since you guys are sharing the money, renting a storage unit won’t be much of a trouble. However, you need to select the right storage unit with the right size. It may just be a cabinet or an extra set of silverware that your friend must have carried. So it won’t make sense to hire an extremely large unit for storing the same. Nowadays, storage units are available in a wide range of sizes and so you need to select the storage space intelligently.

In this way, you can comfortably use a storage unit for all your needs in a budget friendly way.
