Regardless of how far you’re moving, there are unavoidable hassles involved with packing everything you own and getting it to a new place. To make that process easier, 5 Star Truck Rental is here to offer advice and services to eliminate the stress that comes with moving in Los Angeles.

1. Sell what you don’t need.

As you begin to pack your belongings, consider it a chance for a fresh start. If you have things that you’ve thought about getting rid of in the past, this is your chance. Try using a website like eBay, Amazon, or Craigslist to ease the moving load and make some extra cash.

2. Label everything.

By labeling all boxes with what’s in them and what room they belong in, you’ll be able to efficiently unpack your moving truck. Your moving team will be eternally grateful for this organization!

3. Use your resources wisely.

Rather than having to find boxes for everything, make use of any baskets, hampers, laundry bins, or suitcases that you can by packing them full of your belongings.

4. Have all packing completed before moving day.

Nothing is more frustrating for your friends who are sacrificing their day to be your personal helper than showing up to an unpacked home. They’re your movers, not your packers.

5. Rent the proper equipment.

Don’t make everyone suffer through numerous trips back and forth with several small vehicles. Rent a moving truck from 5 Star Truck Rental to cut down on the number of trips. Our moving trucks even have custom-installed lift-gates so that no one has to break their back lifting heavy appliances into the truck. For even easier moving, we provide the following moving equipment for rent: dollies, pallet jacks, furniture pads, and tie downs and straps. These additions ensure that none of your belongings get damaged during the move.

When you’re ready to make a move in Los Angeles, 5 Star has the equipment you need. If you have questions about our services, call us at (818) 767-8816, or request a quote online.
