Skips, vans and cars - ways of making your move smooth

When you’re moving home the stress of the work involved can be daunting. Making the right decision about the level of service or services required can help make the transition a little easier. If you live in a large home or are downsizing then the obvious decision is to get rid of a great deal of clutter that may have accumulated in the time that you have been living in your property. Giving away possessions is perhaps the first port of call followed by garage sales or online auctions.

If however, after all these options you are still left with a pile of unwanted possessions or belongings then investing in a skip can be an affordable way of dumping a lot of goods in one go.

Skip hire

Skip hire is easy and is not just for the building industry and there are a range of companies which specialise in domestic skip hire. It is worth bearing in mind however, that skips attract people on the lookout for freebies. Be sure not to leave any sensitive information or goods that you wouldn’t want to fall into strangers hands.

Van hire

Vans are also great options to help with on the day moves. Big removal companies can take the bulk of your goods but if you want to arrive ahead of the removal men with some of your belongings in tow then van hire can be a great option.

You can load up basic possessions and even furniture so that when you arrive at your new home you have all your key belongings within easy reach and a chance to have at least a cup of tea before your removal men arrive!

Car hire

Other helpful tips when moving is to hire a car, if you live in a city and don’t have a car then having one for the big day can help make the transition a little easier. Using public transport on a busy and tiring day can be a thought too many for some. Hiring a car for a day can be cheap if you book with rental firms in advance and for many are well worth the additional cost.

Whatever, you choose to do on your removal day and in the run up, hiring extra facilities such as skips, vans and cars can help with the organisation ahead of the day itself. Furthermore, for many it’s worth the additional cost and can help make what is a stressful experience less work both physically and mentally.
