Moving the Right Way with Sprinter Cargo Van Rentals

May 26th, 2016

Moving with a Sprinter Cargo Van

"Moving" is the word almost nobody wants to hear. It conjures up nightmares of packing boxes, dealing with moving companies, endless check-lists, delays, and probably the worst of all, strangers handling and not caring about your stuff. But if you take matters into your own hands, you may be surprised with how easy moving can be. It may sound impossible, but there is a way to turn moving from a tedious, back-breaking nightmare into, well, sort-of a party. The only thing you need to perform this trick is a Mercedes Sprinter Cargo Van Rental and two or three friends to help you out with packing and loading everything into the vehicle.

If anything, the stress of putting your valuables and personal belongings into someone else's hands is actually more worrying than just rolling up your sleeves. This is one of the things we truly believe in at Sprinter Rentals. Besides knowing that if you do it yourself, you're bound to do it more carefully, the great advantage at the end of the day is that you know what went where. This can save you a lot of time, and it can be fun too! For instance, why not create an up-beat playlist to put on speakers? Where there are people working, a snack and a drink can go a long way, so make sure that you order or make some food everyone helping. Oh, and stack up on some delicious, hydrating beverages! If it looks like it's going to be more than just a couple of hours, a lunch will definitely boost everyone's morale. Before you know it, you've successfully turned moving into a moving-party. Just like that.

Let's make some comparisons. It might seem like you've got more to do this way, when you could just call a moving company, but do you really? When the employees of a moving company get to your house, you still have to spend hours directing them and oversee the loading so that nothing of value is damaged. Also, you are not with your own property when your items are traveling. With using a Sprinter, you always know where your items are , and that they are not being possibly stolen or roughly handled. Also, moving companies seem like they offer great prices for their services, but how much did you spend by loading it yourself? If you make the food at home the day before, your expenses so far are almost negligible. Another advantage is loading a Sprinter Van is not rocket science.

After making sure everything is packed tightly into boxes, the art of loading a vehicle can be explained in a few easy steps - make sure the heavy stuff goes in first, at the bottom, then stack everything up to save up as much space as you can, with sensitive objects are properly wrapped in packing blankets and that any holes are filled with laundry bags or blankets. And all furniture needs to be secured to the walls of the vehicle with tension belts - pretty simple.

Last, but not least, there's the transportation. With Sprinter Rentals, you're definitely going to save in that area. A Cargo Sprinter that offers an incredible 6 ft. tall and 14 ft. long cargo space for your belongings will cost you approximately 22 miles per gallon. If you didn't believe it until now, you'd better start – with the right van rental services, you can actually save a lot of money if you do it yourself.

Saving money and having fun. What were we talking about? Oh right, moving. Who would have thought?
