In Quebec, the St. Jean Baptiste on June 24th is cause for major celebration. As for Canada Day a week later, well, many people across the province are too busy moving their stuff into a new home or apartment.
If you happen to be one of them this year, the following will certainly interest you. Here are the best vehicles to consider for Moving Day:
Pickup truck Pickup owners suddenly become quite popular when Moving Day approaches. Dependable machines like the Ford F-150, GMC Sierra, Nissan TITAN, Ram 1500 or Chevy Silverado definitely come in handy with their ample space and generous payload capacity. If the truck’s bed is full, just rent a trailer or borrow one from a friend. This is a sure-fire way to move furniture without any hassle.
Minivan So, you like to make fun of parents who settle for a minivan? It’s certainly not the most exciting type of vehicle out there, but man, all that space! And on Moving Day, this is exactly what you need! In many cases, the rear seats can be folded flat or even removed. To give you an idea, the Toyota Sienna, Honda Odyssey and Dodge Grand Caravan can all easily fit a washer and dryer plus a few more small appliances at the same time.
Cargo van Compact cargo vans have become increasingly visible around town and for good reason. They’re spacious, practical and relatively nimble when tackling city traffic. Instead of renting a big and expensive moving truck, consider a small cargo van. You’ll also save money at the pump given their reasonable fuel economy.
Wagon Family wagons and other hatchback-type cars don’t seem to be nearly as popular as SUVs these days. Why is that? Many of them boast similar or even superior cargo capacity. That’s right! Sure, you won’t be able to fit your large appliances in the trunk, but when it comes to boxes and bags, there’s plenty of space for that. On Moving Day, don’t hesitate to call a friend who owns a wagon. You’ll be surprised just how much stuff you can haul in a single trip.
As you can see, it’s not always necessary to rent a big truck to enjoy hassle-free moving. Sometimes all you need is the right vehicle with perhaps a trailer attached to it. Happy Moving Day, everyone!
