Declutter and minimize your belongings—if you can

Letting go of items and belongings that are dear to us is rough but if you want to save cost and make the most of your budget, it is essential. The best way to go about this is to start by prioritising what has to stay and go. After that, you can proceed to give away to charities, schools, and any other place you believe your items will be appreciated. Alternatively, if you own valuable items and would like to make some money off them, you can have a yard sale!

Doing any of these will save you money and help you select valuable and needed items for your new home.

Rent a moving truck

Wherever you are in Auckland be it Downtown, Royal Oak, Silverdale, North Shore, or West Auckland, the first step to a budget DIY move after booking a truck is renting one from Auckland Vehicle Rentals and driving it yourself to cut costs.

For a do-it-yourself move, renting a truck has certain benefits and advantages which include better care of your belongings, moving at your own pace, and getting to know and experience the surroundings of your new home as you drive.

The most effective way to carry out this plan is to ensure your belongings are well packaged in advance and ready to go on moving day!

Moving into a new home is an exciting time in your life. As you prepare to move into your new space, there are important details you should know and remember. These details can make the process easier especially when you decide on doing a DIY move.

Before the energy rush of the move comes in on a moving day, there are a few things you should consider to ensure you have a seamless move. Some of these things include deciding what to move, how to move your items, who will help out with the move, and most importantly the moving truck hire to use. With so much to do before moving into a new home, here are a few tips you should know before moving into your new home:

Everything Cannot Go

One of the hardest parts of moving is deciding what items stay and what items go. As humans, it is not surprising that we can become attached to certain items for sentimental reasons. To make the decision process easier, you can start sorting out your items into categories such as donate, sell, or throw away. This process of sorting out will give you clarity on what cannot go with you to your new home by making the decision process easier.

Knowing what is going with you to your new home can help you in deciding what type of moving truck to hire. 

Plan Your Move

Early preparation saves time and reduces stress. For a seamless move, proper preparation is necessary. The first step in the preparation direction is doing your research on vehicle rental companies. 

When you can decide on the rental company to use, book a moving truck ahead of time. An early booking will help you choose your moving date and prepare you for the move. Planning your move ahead of time fully prepares you for your moving on time instead of making last minute decisions that can be overwhelming and costly.

Get A Quote 

A quote gives an estimate on the cost of hiring a moving truck. When you have an idea of how much you will spend on truck hire, you are better prepared for the cost and extra charges. If you are preparing to move to Auckland’s North Shore, Auckland Vehicle Rentals can provide you with a quote for your hire. We offer competitive prices to suit your budget.

Secure Paperwork

Keeping track of all your paperwork is an important factor of moving that most people forget. It is so easy to stay focused on moving out furniture and everything else that one can easily forget to secure paperwork until the last minute. As you prepare to move, ensure that all your moving documents are handy.  Other documents such as passports, licenses, vehicle registration, etc. should always be kept together during the move to avoid losing them.

 Size Matters

The size of your moving boxes and items will help in knowing the type of moving truck to hire. To avoid overloading your moving truck or taking multiple trips, measure your box sizes so you can have an idea of the best type of moving truck to hire. Auckland Vehicle Rentals have a variety of moving trucks, we also cater to specific requirements such as hydraulic tail lift and ramp model that will help make the moving process smooth and easy.

Congratulations on your new home!

We hope you find these tips useful as you prepare to move into your new home.
