Recruit friends (... and arms!) for the D-Day

One month before your moving date, it's time to have a clear-out and start the preparation of your cardboard boxes. Wrap and protect the most fragile items with newspaper and/or bubble wrap before packaging them. Fill the boxes evenly and compactly. Don't put all your heavy items in the same box. Distribute them fairly !

And, if you need to block a parking space to park the van right in front of your house, contact the police or your town hall now.

The professional's tips

  • Write on each cardboard boxe its destination room (bedroom, dining room, etc.). You will save precious time when you unpacking !
  • Put the word FRAGILE on the boxes to be handled with care.

The D-Day

Go to your Europcar Atlantique agency to pick up your moving van

Guaranteed timesaver at the counter if you made your booking online. In just a few minutes you leave behind the wheel of your van !

The professional's tips

  • Think of the lifting tailgate that will allow you to effortlessly load your heaviest items.
  • Load the largest items first and strap them to the walls.
  • The bed (dismantled!) at the back of the van to not encroach on the loading space (mattress then bed base). Then climb up the furnitures, sofas and big household appliances.
  • Then place the heaviest cardboard boxes on the ground and use the height for the lightest ones. Of course, avoid piling up fragile boxes.
  • Watch out the overloading ! Respect the maximum payload displayed on the windscreen.
