If you are considering a van rental for moving, think about how much space you need and the cost of a van, versus renting a self-pack storage container. If you are moving from a small apartment or dorm, a self-pack container might be the most efficient and cost-effective way of moving your belongings.
A self-pack container will be dropped off at your home. You can take your time packing instead of getting everything loaded in one day. Once you are finished, your container is picked up by the rental company and driven to your new home.
The advantage of self-pack containers is that they come in a variety of sizes, and the price is comparable to renting a truck or van - but you don't have to do the driving. It's an economical way to get your things moved, and you won't pay more than you would for a moving truck or van.
