Did you get evicted due to being unable to pay rent in a timely manner after losing your job? If you now only have a limited amount of time to get packed up and moved out of your house, you need to put a plan in place. Being organized throughout the moving process can reduce the level of stress and get the task done before the landlord rekeys the door locks. Consider the helpful tips that are listed in this article when you start packing up your house.
1. Figure Out Where Your Belongings Will Go
Before you start packing up, make sure you have a place to take your belongings if you haven't found a new home yet. If you don't know anyone with garage space to keep your belongings in for a while, you can consider renting a storage unit. You can rent a storage unit for as little as one month or as long as it needed. The price for a decent size unit that is 10x15 square feet is estimated to cost a minimum of $75 or more per month. However, you can purchase a unit of a smaller or larger size based on your needs and budget.
2. Rent a Dumpster for Tossing Out What You Don't Want
If you have a lot of stuff that you want to get rid of, it is better to toss it inside of large dumpster than placing it by the curb. Leaving a large pile of trash by the curb might leave a negative impact on how the landlord perceives the condition that you leave the property in. You can rent a dumpster for as little as $90 or more for up to four days. However, the rental amount will depend on the size that you opt for.
3. Contact a Moving Company for Assistance
Assistance from professional movers can get you out of the house in no time at an estimated cost of $25 per hour for each mover. You can opt for minimal services to stay within your budget, such as only hiring the movers to load your belongings onto a moving truck that you will drive. You can also hire the movers to pack up your boxes, transport them to the new location, and unload them. The moving company can also supply all of the moving supplies so you won't have to go out looking for any. Contact professional moving services about your needs to see what they can offer.
