Other Moving Day Rental Items For Moving Day

When you think about renting items for your moving day, the first thing to pop into your mind is likely your vehicle or method of transportation. For some, this might be a truck. For others, this could be a cargo van or a trailer. You might even rent a few of these options together! What many people don’t know about, however, are the other moving day rental items out there, all designed to make your move easier.

Carpet Cleaner Rental

If you live in a place with carpeting, you know just how easily things can get dirty. Don’t even get me started on having carpet when you have pets. As you’re getting ready to move out of your house or apartment, you want to make sure that the place is clean and ready for the next person to move in. Rather than paying for professional cleaners or paying a fee for leaving the carpet dirty you can rent a Rug Doctor® carpet cleaner and touch up the place yourself. This is also a great option if you are moving into a new place that, for whatever reason, isn’t as clean as it should be. Although it’s one of the lesser known moving day rental items, the carpet cleaner is likely one of the best. If you notice that your couches, stairs or even your car need a little touching up as well, you can choose to add on the cleaning hand wand.

The utility dolly or hand truck is one of the more commonly used rental items. It the most versatile, “all-purpose” dolly with two names. Rather than breaking your back trying to carry heavy boxes, simply load your things onto the hand truck and get rolling. The utility dolly can carry boxes, appliances, furniture and more! Not only does this dolly help you to carry and move heavier items but you can stack boxes and move multiple at once. This is one of the rental items you will want on every move. Pro Tip: Use bungee cords to add an extra layer of security and keep things on your dolly. If you realize that you’re ready for a more serious commitment than just a rental, you can purchase your own hand truck.
