The Value of Locksmith Services

There are few things worse than coming home from work to find your home has been broken into. Sadly, this happened to me not long ago. My name is Jana, and I’m the single mother of two little girls. After reporting the burglary, a police officer suggested that I call a locksmith. The locksmith asked if I had any spare keys around the house that may have been stolen. Sure enough, I had some hanging on a key rack, and they were gone! I was worrying about jewelry and electronics; I never even thought to look for my keys. That night we replaced all my locks and rekeyed my car. To be extra safe, the locksmith made his next stop at my parents. (I had keys to their house on that key rack.) Locksmiths offer a valuable service; I’m happy to share why they're so great!

Moves To Make At Home Before You Rent A Moving Truck

Moving can cause a lot of anxiety if you don't make a plan in advance. A lot of people wait until the last minute to fill their boxes, they don't have enough help, and they aren't prepared when they show up to rent their moving truck.

Here are a few things you can do to make sure things go as smoothly as possible on moving day so you don't end up having to make several trips back and forth.

Size Your Rental Truck Accordingly

The larger the truck, the more money you have to pay, but you don't want to pay for the gas to make several runs either. You'll want to use an interactive truck sizing tool, or another moving guide, to see how large of a truck you need based off your living space. Once you know how much space you need, you can determine if you want to get the largest for one trip or a size smaller to plan on two trips. Going too small could cause a lot of headache and hassle.

Pack Smart

Unpacking is easier when you pack smart. Don't mix items from different rooms in the boxes. Instead, assign boxes to certain rooms and label each box so you know exactly where to put it when you unload. This prevents you from having items that go in a children's room from ending up in the basement or having kitchen supplies put in the master bedroom. You also want to create an inventory list to make sure everything gets loaded and unloaded.

Know Your Lease

You need to read the fine print and know the details of your truck rental in advance. Know what time you need have the truck back so you don't get charged another day, know what the gas tank has to be at, and if there is a mileage limitation. You should even snap a picture of the mileage and the gas tank, in case they try to charge you money after you bring the rental truck back.

There are a lot of problems that can come up when you move, but packing smart and having everything arranged with the truck in advance is going to help prevent these problems. Talk with the moving truck company and find out what the prices are, and make sure you get insurance to protect the truck and your items.
