Is there anything better than getting keys to a new house?! I remember how it felt when my husband and I were handed the keys to our home. It was such a great feeling to know that all our time spent house hunting had paid off and that we found a place that would be all our own. While my husband and I live in Michigan now, I was no stranger to moving around from place to place growing up. I lived in different cities, states and even in a different country. It definitely took some time to get used to my new surroundings every few years, but after a while I started to handle those transitional time periods of my life like a pro.
Out of anyone, I know that moving can be a hassle. In my opinion, all the stress that comes along with moving is worth it once you're finally settled into a new place that you absolutely love. For today’s blog post, I’m teaming up with CORT Furniture Rental to tell you my story and what it was like to move from place to place growing up.
It all started when I was just a toddler. My parents moved from Michigan to Missouri as a result of taking on new assignments at work. Our family lived in Missouri for a handful of years and then we ended up moving back to Michigan as my parents continued to make strides in their careers. After an extended period of time back in the Great Lakes State, we packed up and moved to Canada for a 1-year stay. We eventually made our way back to our home base in MI and I’ve stuck around ever since (while my parents moved away to Germany for a 2-year stay).
Since I moved a lot as a kid, I know that there are so many logistics involved with the moving process and you never know if your furniture will make it to your new residence and be free from damage (my family and I have had several pieces of furniture ruined by movers over the years). If you're planning on making a big move soon, you should definitely consider using CORT’s furniture rental service. No matter where life takes you, CORT gives you plenty of furniture options to choose from and you can change pieces when you feel like it.
CORT, a Berkshire Hathaway Company, is the nation’s leading provider of transition services, including furniture rental for home and office, event furnishings, destination services, apartment locating, and other services. There are so many advantages when it comes to getting your furniture through CORT.
First off, when you rent with CORT you don’t have to assemble any furniture. Your pieces will be delivered and set up for you (that means you won’t have to do any heavy lifting or spend hours putting your furniture together like a puzzle). Second, you’re reducing waste. Think about it: buying a fancy coffee table sounds like a great idea, but it might not fit your style or your room’s aesthetic if you decide to move into a new home down the road. Do your part and keep waste out of landfills by renting from CORT. Lastly, CORT allows you to swap or change out pieces whenever your needs change. How cool is that?
So, next time you’re gearing up for a big move, don’t forget to consider CORT. Renting furniture is a great way to get essential pieces like beds, couches, tables and more into your home quickly so you can relax, take it easy and start exploring your new neighborhood after moving into a new place.
