These days, Americans move more frequently than they ever have before. The average person living in the US can expect to move about 12 times. This is a big change from tradition. Until recently, Americans typically moved only once or twice in a lifetime. Many people spent all or most of their lives in their hometown.
A Solution for Every Need.
At Gordon Jensen Trucking & Storage, we've witnessed this shift right up close. We've been helping people move to and from Salt Lake City for generations. With over 50 years of experience, there's not much we don't know about moving.
We offer a variety of supplies to help with any housing transition. Moving vans and small trucks are available for rental. These allow people to take charge, packing and moving their own belongings. We also offer moving services. Our larger trucks are operated by our drivers who have CDLs.
Tips and Tricks to Help.
We want the people of Salt Lake City to learn from the challenges we've faced over the years. Moving can be complicated. There are lots of logistics that need managing. Here are some tried and true tips that can help your move go more smoothly.
Make Lists: Making a list and crossing items off as they're completed is still one of the best ways to keep track of what's already been done, and what needs to be done. Whether this is a list kept on paper or an app, having one is a must.
Have a Visual: Unloading a moving truck is perhaps the most satisfying part of the whole moving process. Having a pre-drawn schematic of where you want all the furniture and appliances to go can make it even better. This simplifies a move-in and ensures everyone's on the same page.
Keep Valuables in the Car: We always advise people to inspect our vehicles before driving them off the lot, and before returning them. Sometimes people are so exhausted that they don't remember to take the last step. The best way to ensure nothing valuable is left in our truck is to keep valuables out of our trucks. Stash them in your car, so you can easily keep track of them.
