Moving tips on a budget

Moving tips on a budget

Given that moving is such an exhilarating experience of commencing a new episode, it also does have its expenses and outlays which is definitely very stressful both financially and technically. The financial encumbrance can be palliated with a few tips.

1. Estimate your moving budget
Assessing and evaluating the money to work with is very important and this has to be done before getting into the moving process. You should know where you stand which requires keeping aside optimum money for the move. Hence you need to calculate your savings for the move and moving supplies.

2.DIY move
Prices are soaring high and if you want a move minus an exorbitant price, consider moving yourself. This is a much cheaper option compared to hiring removalist. The loading and unloading process can be procured by your friends or family members which will cut short the expenditure.

3. Go for easy wins- BOXES
Durable, resilient and robust boxes are the need of the hour when it comes to fuss free moves. The quality of the boxes is one thing to be sure of as you cannot afford to let your items break. Handling your stuffs should be your major concern and to ensure that you have to be also aware of the composition of the boxes.

4. Toss out redundant stuffs
We all believe in the fact many items have great emotional value attached to them but our homes are often stuffed with superfluous and inessential things which can be either donated or discarded before embarking on the move. This will also ensure lesser boxes diminishing the load on the rental truck or van.

5. Bring into play your own supplies
Now arrives the prime time to pack which involves the moving supplies. There is a great way to cut short the expense of moving supplies by simply using the items that we get around our homes. Sheets, blankets, T-shirts, etc. can be utilized for padding as a substitute for packing paper, peanuts or bubble wrap. After having done this job you will also have to cover and wrap the items in several layers lest the frangible stuffs get broken or torn.

6. Lug your stuff
If you consider a DIY and a smaller truck or van, we assure you that your wallet will not be sent into a spin as shipping items might be cheaper than actually moving it. For a smooth running and well organized move ship your books, voluminous clothes and heavy kitchen and bathroom items.

7. Commit to paper the total expenses
Retain every receipt and record of the disbursement. Each and every cost related to the move should be followed.

The entire moving process is likely to burn a hole in your pocket but we have tried to jot some of the budget friendly measures to keep you going and tweak your savings.

Tips for Packing a Moving Truck Like a Pro

Tips for Packing a Moving Truck Like a Pro

Curious how to pack a moving truck? If you’re planning a DIY move, you’ll need to know the ins and outs of loading a truck rental. This way, you’ll be able to maximize your space, distribute the weight evenly and prevent damage to your belongings. Here are our tips how to pack a moving truck like a pro.

Gather all supplies
Before you begin loading a moving truck, be sure to gather all necessary supplies for the move. Besides sturdy boxes, plastic wrap and packing tape, you may also need a dolly to help load heavy items, as well as furniture pads or blankets to add extra protection while the truck is in transport.

When loading a moving truck, you want to make sure every item has been packed properly with plenty of protection. This means using furniture pads or moving blankets to fill in the gaps between boxes and furniture items. Not only will this prevent things from shifting while on the road, but it will also prevent items from scraping up against each other. In addition to furniture pads, you’ll need a mattress bag to cover your mattress and moving straps for holding items in place. The bottle shop is a great place to get plenty of boxes. This will make transporting your goods easier and quicker.

Disassemble furniture
Next, disassemble your furniture before you begin loading it onto a moving truck. This will help maximize your space and distribute the weight of heavy furniture more evenly. For instance, by taking the legs off of a dining table, you’ll be able to store the table upright on the truck without having the legs stick out. This will leave more room for your belongings, and you’ll be able to place the table legs in a different part of the truck to help even out the weight.

Load largest and heaviest items first
Ready to begin packing a moving truck? Start with the largest and heaviest items first. This includes mattresses, bed frames, tables, chairs, refrigerators, washer/dryers, couches, sectionals and coffee tables. Given the weight and size of these items, they should be on the bottom of your moving truck and not placed on top of other boxes and belongings. When putting couches, headboards and tables onto a moving truck, be sure that they are placed in an upright position. I also recommend placing them closer to the front of the truck (near the cab).

Load lightest items last
Your second round of items should include medium to lightweight boxes and appliances. When loading these onto the moving truck, be sure to place them on top of furniture and appliances, and not underneath, where they could be crushed. If stacking moving boxes, I recommend using moving straps to hold these in place as well. When packing fragile items on a moving truck, such as a mirror or a box full of collectibles, jewelry and trinkets, be sure to pack them at the very top of the pile. I also recommend bringing fragile items and important documents with you separately. This way, you won’t lose or ruin them during the trip.

Other quick packing tips

  • Leave moving day essentials in an easy-to-reach spot on the truck.
  • In addition to using mattress bags to protect your mattress, use moving blankets or plastic wrap to protect upholstered couches and chairs.
  • Pack kitchen appliances, such as coffee makers, microwaves and blenders, inside of a box before putting them on the truck.
  • Recruit friends to help with the loading and unloading process – especially if moving heavy furniture.
  • All rugs should be rolled up and secured in plastic wrap to save room on the truck.

Best Way to Pack and Load a Moving Truck

Best Way to Pack and Load a Moving Truck

You’ve hired your moving truck, and now you have to know how to pack and load the moving truck to ensure every one of your things land at your new home. In case you’re similar to my significant other, at that point you’ll need to arrange for how the truck ought to be stacked. I need to concede, I’m not the most patient mover. I tend to need to simply complete it; ideally, my significant other will never read this since I’m going to concede that early arrangement on the most proficient method to stack the truck is a smart thought.

Move the biggest and heaviest things first.

This incorporates apparatuses, for example, the fridge, clothes washer, dishwasher and whatever other things that take more than two individuals to move. These things ought to be stacked on the truck before whatever else and kept against the far divider nearest to the taxi. Keep the things in their upright positions.

Utilize furniture cushioning to ensure wood surfaces and corners.

Cushioning can save from damaging corners and edges. Utilizing cushioned security likewise makes it simpler to slide heavier pieces onto the truck.

Pack longer things.

Longer pieces ought to be stacked next, for example, box springs, sleeping pads, long mirrors, headboards, couches, and table-best on to the truck. Place these things against the longest dividers of the truck which will keep them upright and will spare space. Ensure you utilize sleeping cushion spreads to save your quaint little inn from tears and tears and make moving a ton less demanding.

Disguise bed edges, tables and work areas and tape sort out.

Do likewise for longer things, for example, posts, light bases, and light parts. When you move up your floor coverings, put these things inside then tape your cover shut, both around the cover itself and in addition the two finishes. You can likewise utilize cloths to stuff the two finishes of the cover move before taping the closures shut. This will keep things from dropping out amid the move. Place the cover on the floor of the truck.

Next, begin stacking the biggest and heaviest boxes.

Place the crates over the machines and furniture and ensure you fill any cavities underneath tables, under work areas, and on seat seats. Ensure the substantial boxes don’t contain any delicate things.

Exchange lighter boxes to the truck and stack them on the heavier boxes.

Furthermore, ensure the lightest boxes are to finish everything. Attempt to stack confines lines until the point when they achieve the highest point of the truck. Any space between the highest point of the crates and the truck’s roof ought to be loaded with delicate, crushable things, for example, refuse sacks brimming with garments, bedding, and clothes.

Place delicate things or unbalanced formed things at last.

Ensure they don’t move around amid transport. The best spot for delicate confined things is cubbyholes, for example, underneath tables, work areas and underneath seat legs.

Stuff the gaps.

The last things to be stacked ought to be those things that can be full into gaps and that don’t contain anything delicate, for example, packs brimming with garments, clothes, covers, and towels. Things, for example, holders, carport things, boots and shoes and anything that won’t break amid a move, can be utilized to fill exhaust spaces.

Along these lines, in the wake of perusing this, you will take a seat and plan your turn, including how to stack the moving truck. You’ll have a point by point manual for where things are on the truck which will enable when you to empty everything.

Golden tips to remember on driving a rental truck

Golden tips to remember on driving a rental truck

Truck Hire QLD is one of the leading truck hire services based in the Gold Coast and we are here to reassure that truck driving is not any onerous task. Proper arrangements and apt preventive measures will make any rental truck drive plain sailing. Here’s what is worth worrying about but by following the certain tips catalogued below, truck driving even for the first time will become duck soup.

  1. Driving a truck that too for neophytes is an unnerving experience. You will be needing some time to get used to it and make yourself comfortable. The moment you feel confident about handling the vehicle on road, is when you are all set to go. Before driving it around for a few blocks, get acquainted with the truck before the move.
  2. Fasten and secure every item so that all the articles remain protected lest they fall or break inside. This should be checked before leaving. Our trucks are fitted with a hydraulic taligate loader which can handle up to 500kg payload which helps lift your heavy items safe and guarded.
  3. Do check the side mirrors time and again and especially when turning or changing lanes.
  4. Make sure the brakes of your truck function properly. Use them frequently but with ease.
  5. The height of your truck is what you need to be aware of as and also be cautious of the height limits on your route when it comes to bridges, overpasses and any high rise stuctures as trucks are way taller. The height of our trucks is 3.5 metres.
  6. Prevention is better than cure and so trucks must be driven slowly no matter how big or small the truck is. What matters is the pace of the moving truck and it is always recommended to drive below maximum speed limits.
  7. The important documents such as driver’s license should be with you while driving the trucks.Our trucks require no special truck license just a full open car license.
  8. It is better not to solely rely on your side mirrors. Therefore, it is desirable to have someone guiding outside while backing up the truck. Reversing or going through tight places should not be done in haste.
  9. Not only the height but also the width of trucks is poles apart as compared to the standard cars. Hence, the truck will be needing more turning area in making tight turns and going around corners.
  10. Please remember to fill up your truck with diesel fuel at the end of your rental. For the long distance trips please ensure enough fuel is in the tank to make it to the next service station.
