Moving to a new house? Consider hiring your own van
Whether you’re a homeowner or a tenant, moving to a new house is rarely straightforward. After weeks of packing and sorting everything for your move, the next big challenge will be deciding how you are going to get everything from your old house to your new home. If you’re looking for a cheaper and more convenient way to move house, then instead of using a costly removal company, you could hire a rental van.
Here are three good reasons why you should consider hiring a van to move house:
1. Save time
Whether you’re moving locally or to another part of the country, driving back and forth in more than one car is going to take up hours of your time. So, why make several trips to your new home, when you can hire a van and move all your belongings in one go? One top tip: set aside cool boxes for chilled or frozen food to move on the day, including some basics like milk, so you can enjoy a cuppa before you set off!
2. Save costs
Home removal companies tend to be very pricey and, unless you book well in advance, you may not have much flexibility on dates. So, if you’re looking to save some money and work to your own timings, why not hire a rental van? Ask family and friends to help you with your move, and then reward them with a housewarming party afterwards at your new home!
3. Save the planet
Making multiple trips in several vehicles will increase the level of polluting fuel transmissions. Instead, use one large van to transport all your belongings. Start planning at least two months ahead; this will give you plenty of time to find suitable packing materials and boxes. Try to use recycled cardboard or another sustainable material. Label each box with the name of the intended room. Not only will you be reducing your impact on the planet, but you will be starting your new chapter in an organised manner.
