Packing for a move is fun, and at the same time challenging. The fun side is you are moving to a new home, on the other hand, there is the task of making sure you do not forget anything. Homeowners with an eye to saving on costs prefer a DIY move, and for most of them, their go-to rental truck company is U-Haul. U-Haul trucks are cheap and are available across many cities. Although they may look inviting, there are some specific things many people do not know about U-Haul rentals. Knowing these things might help you make a more informed decision:

1. Reserve Special Vehicles for local moves

Are you going on a long-distance move? If yes, then you need to have a second thought before visiting the nearest U-Haul because you may not get the kind of vehicles you want to rent. Special vehicles like a cargo van, open trailer or pickup truck are not available for a long distance move so if you are going on a long journey and you were thinking of renting a cargo van then you have to consider another truck rental company.

2. You may not be able to speed or Use Cruise Control

Still, on the long-distance move, you might be hoping of stepping on the gas and zooming off to your new home before nightfall. However, not all U-Haul vehicles have the cruise control option. Also, the weight of the equipment on the vehicle and a possible speed governor system might play a significant role in how fast you will drive.

3. You are not guaranteed the truck that you reserve

How would you feel if you requested for particular kind of vehicle and upon arrival, it wasn't available? Angry, right? That is what happens most times at U-Haul. Customers are not guaranteed the ruck they reserve, and when they get there, they are sent to another location or in a worst-case scenario given a bigger truck that might use more gas, which costs more money.

4. U-Haul doesn't add fuel to their prices

Depending on how far your trip might be, fuel has a significant impact on the total cost of a U-Haul rental. When you rent a truck from U-Haul, you will have two options; fuel the truck yourself or use the U-Haul's EZ-fuel service which is separate from the cost of renting the truck.

5. U-Haul is a franchise business.

Lastly, before you rent a truck from U-Haul, get your mind ready to deal with different procedures, regulations, and management. These may determine how long you spend the office since each office will have completely different management and practices.

When moving to a new home, you will need to rent a truck that can carry all your belongings. If you don't like the option of doing it yourself, there are many professional moving companies that you can use to make your move as smooth as possible.

With lots of homes out there and more foreclosed homes coming to the market, home sellers are always looking out for ways to expedite the home selling process. Statistics show that most homebuyers make their decisions in the first few minutes they get to a home. Consequently, experts advise home sellers to invest cash in remodeling their homes and installing features that appeal to a higher percentage of homebuyers. 

The greatest fear of a home seller is having his property sit on the market forever. Here are a few buy-me-now features for every homebuyer seek.

Top Features to Make Your Home Sell Fast

  • Extra Storage in Garage. Homebuyers have long dropped the trend of using the basement as storage. Instead, they now look for a more convenient place which can double as storage and workshop. Yes, you guessed it – a garage with extra space. Installing features like cabinets, shelving units, and the likes make the home more appealing to potential homebuyers. Convenience is the trend!
  • Inviting Exterior. Your home exterior tells potential buyers all they need to know. You could have a fantastic interior décor and still scare potential buyers off with poor unappealing exterior features. Be sure to pay attention to your door and its hardware, mailbox, and most importantly, the lighting. A well-illuminated home sells faster and better than one with poor lighting.
  • Hardwood Flooring. Wood floors have to be the most desirable feature in a home. Statistics show that homes with hardwood flooring have the propensity to seller faster and at a higher cost compared to other homes in the same neighborhood. Why? It is because hardwood flooring is durable, easy to maintain, and they make the home pop. It immediately creates a statement as visitors walk into your home.What's more? They complement just about any interior design. Who wouldn't want a home with such an amazing feature?
  • Sophisticated Kitchen. The kitchen is the heart of the home. No wonder homebuyers are willing to put out more cash to secure a house with a modern kitchen. As a home seller looking to expedite the buying process, this is an excellent place on which to focus. You also get the opportunity to upsell the property. Be sure to make the kitchen as sophisticated as possible. Homebuyers want a kitchen with ample storage space. Features like modern countertops, pantries with abundant space, hidden storage for utensils are your best shot at closing the deal sooner.

Giving your home a lift – both indoors and outdoors - increases your chances of attracting potential buyers. And the more potential buyers you have, the higher your chances of upselling the home. Invest in your home today!
