4 Options for Moving Your Stuff

Moving is an activity that most people do not look forward to. However, choosing the best way to get your stuff from your old place to your new place can take some of the frustration out of the process. Consider these four options when deciding how best to move your property.

1. Rent a Trailer

If you can fit most of your belongings in your personal vehicle, but you need a way to move a few larger items, consider renting a utility trailer rental Everett WA. These trailers come in a variety of sizes and can usually be attached to a standard tow hitch. Because they are not enclosed, this is not a good option for property that is difficult to tie down but can be very useful for large appliances, furniture and other items. 

2. Rent a Moving Truck

A moving truck can be useful for small to moderate-sized moves where you have the manpower to pack up and load everything yourself but need a vehicle large enough to transport it. These trucks come in a variety of sizes. It is best to choose the smallest truck that you can fit all of your stuff in because it will cost less to rent and fuel and be easier to drive and park. If your move is a small one, you may be able to rent a pickup truck or van instead of a traditional moving truck.

3. Hire a Moving Company

If you are not able to pack and load everything yourself or you just do not want to, you can hire a moving company to do it for you. Full service moving companies will pack your stuff, load it in their own vehicles, drive it to your new house and then unload it for you. This is by far the easiest method of moving, but also usually the most expensive. If you have a lot of stuff and can afford the expense, this may be the best option for you.

4. Sell Some Stuff

You can make your move easier by getting rid of anything you do not need before you move. Sell some stuff on eBay or Craigslist, have a garage sale or donate it to charity.

These four methods of moving your stuff can help make your transition to your new home easier. Whichever method you choose, plan ahead and try not to sweat the small stuff.
