You’ve decided on a DIY move. Now what?
We understand the different reasons for choosing a DIY move rather than hiring the professionals at NYC Movers & Packers. It’s just as important to us that you have a pleasant and safe moving experience. The following are some helpful tips that will ensure a smooth transition into your new home when moving yourself, the first of which is choosing the best moving truck rentals in NYC:
- Keep in mind that there are a number of different companies that rent different size moving trucks as well as trailers and vans – it’s important to choose the right size for your specific needs. The size of truck you rent will depend on the type and number of items that you’re moving. Estimate their total volume and then choose a truck that has another 10% to 20% additional space.
- Determine if you need any additional equipment or extra services – the best moving truck rentals in NYC offer a broad range of add-on services and moving supplies that can make your move easier and safer. You can request:
- bags and covers
- bicycle racks
- moving labor
- padding and wrapping materials
- ropes and tie-downs
In some cases, loading ramps, towing accessories, and other essential equipment may be included in the rental cost. However, you should still inquire about this since no two truck rental companies are alike. If you’ve never driven a large truck before, be sure you familiarize yourself with it beforehand. Also, don’t forget supplemental moving truck insurance in addition to your auto or homeowner’s insurance. Hopefully, all the above information is helpful when it comes to choosing the best moving truck rentals in NYC.
