Moving isn’t easy, especially when you’re moving a large distance to a new area you’re not familiar with. Believe me…after moving from North Carolina to Minnesota and back again within a year and half, I learned my lessons the hard way. There are some things I would do differently (well, a lot of things, actually) and a few I’d do the same.
One thing I would definitely do differently is rent furniture instead of moving or buying it. That’s right! I would contact a company like CORT Furniture Rental so I could have peace of mind during the move and transition to a new city. Let me share with you why you should consider renting furniture when making a big move.
It makes the move lighter and more affordable.
You have enough on your mind when settling into a new city without having to worry about the details of packing and moving an entire house of furniture. In hindsight, my move to Minnesota would have been a lot smoother if I had left my furniture behind, especially since I knew I would only be there temporarily. We could have contacted CORT for new furnishings that would have been waiting for us when we arrived to our new space. Instead, we packed up everything and learned from our mistake. So when we made the move back to NC we got rid of everything we could before heading back and it made the move SO MUCH easier. We left behind the couch, the washer and dryer, even a car! Not only was it easier to make the track back, but it was cheaper, too. I wish had known about CORT Furniture Rental back then!
It’s a lot less work for you.
When was the last time you made a move? It’s been eight years for me, but I remember the sore muscles just like it was yesterday. With CORT, forget the hassle of unpacking furniture into your new home. Their professionals will deliver and set up your space down to the last pillow, without you having to move even a finger. Now that’s what I call settling into a new home with ease. When you rent furniture all you have to do is unpack your suitcase and start exploring your new city!
It’s great when you’re renting a space.
When we moved to our current city, we rented for 3 months before we built our current home. Those 3 months gave us time to learn the area and find out where we wanted to live. Remember I said we had left almost all of our furniture behind? That meant we bought an entire living room suite for our rental when we moved here, which unfortunately never fit into our new permanent home. Renting furniture for those 6 months in our rental home would have saved us a lot of hassle of buying, selling and buying furniture again during that short amount of time. CORT has flexible leasing options to meet your needs for however long you plan on renting your space.
Once you realize why you should consider renting furniture for a big move, you’ll discover it’s a no brainer. The next time you find yourself making a move, be sure to stop by CORT Furniture Rental so you can make your move with peace of mind.
