About Me

organizing your next move

As a military spouse, I have a lot of experience packing and moving. I have learned what to leave out until the very last minute and what can be put away long before the move. I have learned what will be needed the first night in the new home and what can wait several days or even weeks to be unpacked. My blog can help you get through the organizational aspects of your move. Once you are organized, everything else will fall into place and the rest of the move will be nothing more than moving boxes here and there.

3 Ways To Get Your New Furniture To Your House

When you buy that brand new couch and discover you have to get it to your house on your own, it can be frustrating. What can make it worse is the fact that you don't have a truck, so you need to figure out exactly how you are going to get it from the store to your house. There are ways that you can figure out how to get your new couch to your house.  

Find a Friend

One thing you can do is to find a friend with a truck. They may have a truck that is big enough to get your new couch to your house. The problem with doing it this way is that you are going to have to work around your friend's schedule. Their schedule may not mesh well with yours, so you may have to wait longer than you want to get your couch to your house.  

Rent a Van

Another option is to go to a company that rents trucks and vans. Most of those companies will offer a daily, local rate. That means that you can rent a van for a few hours to go to the store, pick up your couch, and bring it back to your house. The rental fee is generally rather low since you are just renting it for just one day. You may have to refill the gas that you use, depending on the rules of the company you decide to rent from. If their lease agreement says that you have to refill the gas tank to the level it was when you picked the van up, you may have to pay an additional fee.  

Hire Some Professionals

Another option you have is to hire a furniture delivery company. They will go to the store, get your furniture for you, and then bring it to your house and put it where you want it. Some furniture delivery services will also set up for the furniture for you. For example, if you get a bed, they will make sure your new bed is sleep ready before they leave. You will have to pay an additional fee to the delivery company since you are hiring them to get your furniture. You may also want to tip the delivery people, especially if your job is complex. For more information about hiring professional movers, contact a business such as Gardner Moving

Getting new furniture can be a good thing. Finding out that the store won't deliver to your house isn't a good thing. But, you can find a way to get it to your house.
