If you live in Southeastern Massachusetts and are planning a residential move, one of the best ways to get your belongings from your current location to the new one, is to take advantage of moving truck rentals. When you reserve a Penske rental truck, you can choose the size based on the amount of things that you have to move. When you rent from Affordable Storage in Fall River, you can also take advantage of our on-site storage facility to keep things that you might not have room for at your new location or just things that you want to keep in storage.
How to Rent a Moving Truck
As soon as you know that you will be relocating, it’s a good idea to contact a representative at Affordable Storage to make a reservation. A Penske truck rental in Fall River can be used as a one-shot move, using a large truck to move your entire household in one trip, or you can get a smaller truck and make more local trips back and forth. It all depends on your moving budget, the time that you have available, and how you want to organize your move. Just give us a call at 508-675-1177 to reserve your truck today!
BONUS TIPS – When you call about getting moving truck rentals, make sure to know your moving date and how long you will need to use the truck. You can sometimes get better rates if you rent a truck during the week, such as Monday through Thursday; and also in the middle of the month. Most people who call to reserve a Penske rental truck like to move at the first or end of the month, as that is when many leases and rental agreements expire and begin. If you are flexible about your moving date, you might be able to save even more money on rentals if you avoid weekends, especially the first and last weekends of the month.
What Will I Need to Move?
Outside of your moving truck, you will also need to look into some tools and supplies that you can use to help facilitate your move. Make sure to ask about any moving equipment that is available, such as a hand truck, moving pads and other local options. When you call to learn how to rent a moving truck, find out if any of these items are included. It will depend on availability, and of course, what you actually need.
Boxes and packing supplies are also important. Make sure to get enough quality boxes, packing tape, packing paper, moving blankets, bubble wrap and a good permanent marker so you can properly pack your things. The amount of boxes that you will need will depend on the number of things that you need to move. It is important to use quality supplies because they will be protecting your valuable items and other personal belongings. Clean, sturdy boxes and proper packing materials should be used whether you are moving down the street or across the state.
How Many People Do I Need to Move?
Again this will depend on the amount of things that you have to move and how much time you have to move them. If you just have a two-bedroom apartment full of furniture, clothing, kitchen things and personal items, you might not need any help. However, if you have a four-bedroom house full of ten years of collected things, you might need a whole crew of family and friends to come by and help you get the job done in a reasonable amount of time.
BONUS TIP: If your family and friends are helping you move for free, make sure to make it worth their while. Have healthy sandwiches and cut fruit available, along with water bottles and soda pop during the day. At the end of the day, arrange to pick up or have pizza delivered so everyone can fuel up when the work is done. You could even host a BBQ at your new house that evening, if you are able to take care of all the details. A nice party and celebration of your new residence will make it fun for everyone involved.
