You’re moving and you are about ready to take everything you own and load it – but – load it into what? Well, before you get that far, take a short step back and take a look at what kinds of moving vans are available. There are the you hire them moving vans, the you pack and load and they bring you the moving vans kind of company and there is the option where you choose what you need for moving vans from a rental location.

It’s not all that confusing, despite the various sizes of moving vans that are available. Look at it this way, the smaller the move, the smaller the van you need. The larger the move, well, you may need more moving vans, but the easiest way to tell that is to make a survey of your home. Do this one room at a time and approximate how much furniture is in the room. Don’t forget what is in the closets. Do the kitchen and all the cupboards as well. Make a list of things as you go. If this is rather overwhelming, it might be easier for you to call a moving company and ask about moving vans.

Moving companies have relocation specialists on staff who can survey your home and contents for you and let you know right away what the cost of your move is likely going to be. They’ve been at it for years and will know what size moving vans you will need for your move.

Another option for you is the pack your home and the company you will bring the van, the loading ramps, the dollies and furniture blankets. This can save you money in the long run. They are professional drivers and can handle any size move. It would be one more thing off your long list of things to do.
Help with your move can be as simple or as complete as you want it to be. If you a full service move the mover will pack and unpack for you, set things up (including appliances), drive your belongings there and in general just make your move as easy as 1-2-3.

If you want the full service move, be prepared to pay for it. Would it be worth the expense? If you work long hours, have young children and no time to pack, it would be worth it. By the way, if you happen to be moving for work reasons, a full service move may be fully paid for by your employer. Ask before booking a company, or simply book with your company recommended relocation specialist.
