How to use the sharing economy when moving house.

No comments

Moving in and out of your new home is always a stressful affair, not least because of the logistical nightmare of getting all your belongings from one place to another. This is an issue we have to face all too often, especially as students and young professionals. This is why we wanted to enlighten you on a few ways peer-to-peer renting can make this process easier for you.

First of all, moving always requires some kind of equipment, whether it is tools to disassemble your wardrobe or a sack truck to move your heavy furniture. If you are a DIY kind of person and don’t want to hire other people to do this for you, you can easily find this equipment for rent online without breaking the bank or losing precious storage space. That is a double-win right there.

Another reality of moving is that going through your personal inventory, you are always left with an odd assortment of knick knacks that could get easily lost in the way. More often than not, you don’t have enough cardboard boxes in your house to carry it all and buying new ones seems wasteful. Fear not, for the people of the online sharing community have anticipated your need: you can now get a set of sturdy plastic moving crates to rent for next to nothing again without having to let go of valuable storage space.

Finally, although we know that a lot of rental apartments come at least semi-furnished, there are often some things missing that you don’t feel like buying straight away but need immediately. These kind of placeholder items range from vacuum cleaners and kitchen appliances to hi-fi equipment and spare chairs. All things you can find at Fat Lama from borrowers near you.
