Summer is the season of moving. Families decide to transplant from Brooklyn to Queens, or college students are readying themselves for their first off-campus apartments. It’s an exciting time! But at Empire Rent A Car, we know that moving can also be a hassle. Let us give you a few tips for how to make the move as smooth as possible.
1. Get organized.
Some people can throw all their things in a minivan, drive across town, and consider themselves moved. However, moving is much easier if you take time to organize your belongings ahead of time. Mark each box so you know what it contains and where it goes in your new place. That way, if you have friends helping you move, they’ll know right where the box goes—and you’ll spend less time searching for that one elusive item while trying to unpack.
2. Call for reinforcements.
Don’t be a hero. Ask for help. Even if you think you can handle it all yourself, moving goes so much faster when you have help. Plus, you’ll be much less tired than if you had tried to do it all yourself.
3. Spring for the moving truck.
Don’t try to cram it all in your sedan or a cargo van. Moving trucks come in all sizes and make moving so much easier. They’re built for easy storage and transport. Some even come with a ramp or lift gate that allows you to get furniture or large boxes on and off the truck with ease. If you have more than just a few suitcases or boxes, we think you’ll find a moving truck rental well worth the money.
