Moving truck rentals should be reserved well in advance.

Moving is time consuming, but if a few simple guidelines are followed, a relocation can be easier than previously thought.

Preparation is key to a successful move, according to Lifehacker.com. Taking care of things such as transferring information for monthly bills, buying packing supplies, and measuring furniture will help when it comes time to relocate. Consumers should also research the type of rental truck they want and reserve one for the day they plan to move.

The time it takes to pack belongings shouldn't be underestimated. It's important to sort, label and carefully manage everything, Lifehacker.com advised. Consumers should always have a bag with clothing and toiletry essentials that will help them get by until the rest of their belongings can be unpacked in their new home.

The actual act of moving in can be daunting, but it doesn't have to be. If a person was organized with their packing, this should be a seemingly effortless task, Lifehacker.com said. Having trash and recycling receptacles set up can make the clean up process much easier.

If a person doesn't want to rent a moving truck, they should consider a portable storage container. Once they pack their belongings inside, it will be shipped to the new home.ADNFCR-3450-ID-19905971-ADNFCR
