Article Image

Whether your car has suddenly broken down, you are buying a new car at your destination or you simply can't drive, you may find yourself in a situation where you are having to move into a new home without the use of a car. Fear not, for this is a very simple situation to deal with provided that you know what you need to do. This article will cover what you will need to know in order to successfully move home without the use of a car.

Hire a moving company

Although this is a good idea regardless, when you do not have a car, using a moving company is an absolute must. They will transport your personal belongings to your new home for you. As you do not have access to a car, you will not be able to do this yourself so this is a necessity. On top of this, using a professional moving company has a number of other benefits. For example, when moving you will need to be as time efficient as possible. By moving everything to the new home at once, you are ensuring that everything is moved over there as quickly as possible. This will give you time to do other tasks. Another benefit is that they will move your belongings inside for you. This will mean that you will not have to exhaust yourself with moving everything by yourself.

Public transport/ Taxi/ Flight

Now that you have sorted out how you are going to move your belongings to the new house, you can figure out how you yourself are going to get there. This will largely depend on how far you are moving. If you are moving within the same city, your best bets will be either public transport, a taxi service or some sort of ride sharing service. When choosing between these three you will want to weigh up the cost as well as how close they are able to get you to your new home. If you are moving between cities or even between states, your only real option is to catch a flight there. When you do this you will still need to choose between the three short distance transport options to get to and from the airport so regardless of distance you are going to need to look into those three.

Get everything done before you move

Usually during and after a move, you will be going back and forth between the old house and the new house to get things done at the old house done. When you don't have a car this can end up being either very time consuming, very expensive or both. To make sure that this isn't a problem, you will want to get everything done that you possibly can before the day of the move and before you go over the new house. There is a possibility that you will still need to go back and forth but to limit how much this is needed you will want to get as much done with each trip as possible. If you have several people moving together and you know that there is a lot to still be done at the old house, it may be a good idea to have one person stay behind at the old house to sort out what needs done there.
