If you are about to move, and you live in the Phoenix Arizona area, the last thing that you want to worry about is finding the right equipment to help you move. There are a lot of options out there from trying to move everything yourself and using your own vehicles, to renting a “moving/box” truck or Container, to deciding on a full-service moving company.
If you do decide to use a full-service moving company in Phoenix, make sure you pick one that has the right size truck. Don’t make the mistake of thinking you should get a smaller truck to save on gas. The smaller the truck, the more hours the move will take because you have to take into consideration trips back and forth.
The largest local moving truck on the market is the 26-footer. At GYMO, this is what we use for a standard move. This means that you are going to have much more space on the inside of the truck. If you have more space, you are also going to have fewer loads. If you have fewer loads, you will have less gas to put in the moving truck. It all works out perfectly.
Moving can be a very stressful situation. Here are some tips to help make everything a little easier for you:
- Pack up everything into boxes before you get the moving truck. This way, everything will be ready to go. This will mean that you will not have to keep the truck as long and you will save money.
- Make sure that all of your boxes are properly labeled. If every box a proper label, the movers will know which room it needs to go in, and unpacking will be much easier.
- Use the necessary tools to help you get the job done quickly. For example, find a dolly to help you move multiple boxes with one trip. Our trucks come equipped with not only a dolly but several other rolling devices that assist your furniture and boxes out the door quickly and easily.
- Ask friends and family members if they would be willing to help you. Obviously, most people are not going to want to spend their day off helping you move. However, you may get lucky and find a few people. Of course, you could always hire some very happy, friendly and smiley guys from Get Your Move On :).
Moving into a new home can be stressful and also exciting. If you have everything lined up perfectly, you will be able to get the job done much faster. Make sure that you have a moving truck reserved in advance. This way, when the time comes to make your move, you will be prepared. Before you know it, you will be unpacking and wondering why you were so worried.
