Congratulations, you want to move into a new house / apartment! You only have one problem: you don’t have a car. What do you do? How do you move your entire belongings without wheels?
If you live in a big city with a good public transportation system, chances are, you don’t really need a car in your everyday life. A move can be a logistical hassle, and we’re here to help you plan ahead for a smooth transition.
Option #1: Rent a truck
This option is great because moving trucks come in a variety of shapes and sizes. You’ll need to estimate the size ahead of time and schedule your move ahead of time. You will need a license to drive it though!
Don’t forget to check the truck for damages before signing off when accepting it, and get insurance!
Option #2: Hire professional movers
Hiring professional movers is the easiest, simplest plan, and it will definitely make your moving day easier. You won’t have to worry about your most valuable belongings getting damaged during the move, you won’t have to lift the furniture, you won’t have to rent a truck and return it will a full tank of gas. Don’t forget to get moving insurance!
Option #3: Ask around on social media
One of your friends may actually have a truck, and can help you out for the day. If you do take a friend’s truck, make sure you bring it back with a full tank of gas, washed and in the same condition you had received it.
Have a safe, smooth move!
