Moving House 101: Portable moving containers vs. rental trucks (Part 2)

Portable Moving Container - Setting up

Can rental trucks give you that feel-good, moving feeling that storage containers deliver every time?

In Part 1, we took a look at the variable costs involved in truck rentals in comparison to more cost-effective, fixed price portable storage containers. Today, we’ll take things one step further and explore how storage containers measure up against a truck rental when you reach your destination. Which will leave you feeling relaxed and free to enjoy your new home?

You have arrived at your destination

So, how do truck rentals and portable moving containers compare when it comes to getting from A (Old Home) to B (New Home)? Will you choose the can-do, slightly exhausting option or will you opt for the massively more enjoyable BuddyBox moving experience?  

Truck rentals

Let me paint a picture. You’ve spent weeks packing up your house and have boxes in every room. Now it’s time to load them into the rental truck that you have for a day or, maybe, two. Feeling tired yet? Once you’ve loaded them up, it’s time to drive to your new home and start unloading. There’s no time for a rest, because the rental truck’s clock is ticking …

Portable moving containers

Apart from the cost-effectiveness, one of the overriding reasons for the popularity of portable moving containers is that they are also storage containers! We will deliver your secure, weatherproof containers to your home well in advance, giving you a month or more to complete your move. You can then pack up your home, room-by-room and load your containers as you go.

 

On moving day, one of our drivers will collect your moving containers and transport them to your new home for you. When you arrive, refreshed and relaxed, you’ll know which room is in which container and can unpack at your leisure. When you finish, just give us a call to collect the containers. 

No storage wars here

What happens if you have underestimate how much you actually own? It has happened to us all. We secrete things away in cupboards, closets and attics, and get a nasty shock when we can’t fit all of our boxes onto the rental truck we’ve hired. Not a great situation to find yourself in, we think you’ll agree!

Truck rentals

What a situation! The truck you’ve hired is too small. You have two options: 1. Call the truck rental company to ask if they have a larger truck; 2. Call the truck rental company to extend the rental period, so that you can make two trips. Whatever you choose, it will cost you time and money that may not have.

Portable moving containers

Breathe … BuddyBox portable moving containers are also storage units. So, if you run out of space, just pick up the phone and ask us to deliver another container. Because, we’ll deliver your storage containers way before your move, there’s no moving day stress at all, just peace of mind that your move will go like clockwork.

Make your moving day memorable for the right reasons

Moving House 101: Portable moving containers vs. rental trucks (Part 1)

Buddy Box Portable Containers

Portable storage containers are taking the moving industry by storm! Can rental trucks compete?

 

 

Moving containers are fast becoming the first choice of homeowners who are moving locally, to another State or even internationally. There are a few very good reasons for the sudden rise in popularity of this cost-effective, flexible way to move and store your belongings. Read on to find out how traditional rental trucks stack up in comparison!

What’s the damage?

Setting and keeping to a moving budget has always been challenging, simply because of the pricing structure of traditional moving and truck rental companies.  At BuddyBox, we do things differently by giving you everything you need to come in on or under your moving budget.

Truck rentals

If you’ve ever moved house, you’ll know that you’ll need pretty deep pockets to cover the cost of a truck rental. There are so many hidden costs – extra mileage, fines for late return of the truck, gasoline, tolls, insurance, etc – and those extra dollars really add-up! The end result? You end up paying way more than you ever thought possible.

Portable moving containers

Wouldn’t it be great to know that the price you are quoted is the price you will pay? With portable moving containers, there’s one price and one price only. When you request a quote from BuddyBox we’ll make sure that everything you need is included, so you’ll know exactly what you are getting for your money and won’t have to worry about any costly surprises!

On your marks, get set, move … 

Moving home shouldn’t be a race. It takes so many years for us to accumulate all of our worldly possessions, so why do we expect ourselves to load, move and unload everything in just one day? Give yourself some slack with moving containers …

Truck rentals

Most truck rentals come with strict time restrictions. The price you pay is based on the number of hours or days you have rented the truck for. That puts a huge amount of pressure on you and your family to get the truck loaded at your old home and unloaded at your new home in good time to get it back to the truck rental company before the cut-off time.

Portable moving containers

The amazing difference with moving containers is the time you have to load and unload them. With BuddyBox moving containers, you have a month  to pack up your belongings, load them into your container(s) and unload them at your leisure once you reach your new home. There’s no time limit, just a great moving service that’s designed to make your house move a pleasure.
