Moving Soon in or from the Pensacola area? Here are Resources to Help!

Moving is so much work. If you are looking for moving resources in the Pensacola area, we have some advice for you including a list of reputable professional moving companies in Pensacola, do-it-yourself Pensacola moving truck rental companies, moving resources, packing tips, and moving tips below. 

Professional Movers in Pensacola 

There are quite a few moving companies in the Pensacola area! I'm going to give you the list of those we've had more experience with and that have the highest ratings. 

  • All My Sons Moving  & Storage- offers Pensacola residents local, in-state, and out-of-state moves.

  • Bayside Moving- is located and Gulf Breezes and serves Navarre, Pensacola and beyond. They offer both local and long distance moving assistance. They also offer a load/unload only option which allows you to pay for only assistance for loading or unloading should you desire. 

Moving Truck Rentals in Pensacola
Need to save money with your move? Rent your own moving truck to easily relocate your family and possessions. 

  • U-Haul Moving & Storage- By far, U-Haul has the largest number of stores in Escambia and Santa Ros counties, making it the most convenient choice for a do it yourself move. They also offer storage, boxes and packing supplies, and moving labor. 
  • Budget Truck Rental- Budget Truck Rental has two locations in Pensacola. With one location in West Pensacola on Fairfield Drive and one location in Northeast Pensacola on Davis Hwy., it is another great option to consider for your Pensacola move. 
  • Penske Truck Rental- Penske Truck Rental has three locations for truck rentals in the Pensacola area. They also offer storage and packing supplies. 
  • Enterprise Truck Rental- Entprise Rent-A-Car features several options for vehicles to assist with your Pensacola move. 

Packing Tips

  • Start early! Begin packing away non-essential items a month before your move.
  • Put saran wrap over your utensil trays so items don't fall out when moving.
  • Put trash bags around your hanging clothes so you don't have to take them off the hangers.
  • Label everything! You will forget later, we promise.
  • Take a picture of the back of electronics so you know exactly where the wires go when you hook everything back up.
  • Pack the items you will need first in a clear plastic bin so you can easily find them.

Moving Advice
Two of our team members just made a move and they have some advice for you.

  • Start early. Secure your new property weeks in advance of your move out date so you can have a stress free, easier moving process.
  • Make sure to transfer your utilities in time; don't procrastinate. Consider weekends and holidays when planning.
  • Make a checklist of who you need to change your address with and do not forget your driver's license.
  • If you have a yellow star in the corner of your Florida license, you can change your address online. If not, you must change your address in person at the DMV.
  • Make sure you know which day the last day of the month is so you can plan accordingly.
  • Line up your moving help or truck in advance as availability is low in spring.

New Year's Resolutions for Tenants and your Home

A new year is the time to start new habits. Remember that leasing a home is a tool to help you become prepared to one day own and care for your home. Building good habits now can help you in the future. Here are a few suggestions to be sure you and your home are ready for the new year!

  • Make sure rental insurance policy up to date or start a policy! You can insure your personal property for as little as $20 per month.
  • Work on a family budget. Review your expenses from 2018 and see how you can cut back to establish a savings, build your credit, and ensure you can make payments timely.
  • Don't forget- you can pay your rent online with RentTrack and opt-in to credit reporting. As long as you make payments on time, you can build credit while you are renting through us! Are you taking advantage of this?


Inside your home

  • Pick up a year's supply of air filters for the A/C system, then you can have one to change out every 30 days, and can date them to remind yourself.
  • Check batteries in all of your smoke detectors and change them if you have not in the last 6 months. Report any concerns about detectors to our office.
  • Check all water sources for leaks inside, especially those that are not seen often! Open sink cabinets and check for dripping pipes under the sink. Inspect the hot water heater. Look at the water pipes going to your washing machine. Open the toilet lid and inspect the inside to see if the flapper is sealing properly.


Outside your home

  • Walk the yard and check for areas of concern! Are there any soft spots in the yard? Is there debris on the roof? Report to us any safety concerns.
  • Inspect the exterior pipes, faucets, hoses, and sprinkler heads for any damages or leaks.
  • Clean up any pet debris in yard!
  • Trim back shrubs, bushes and low lying tree branches to be sure they will grow back healthy in spring.
  • Rake leaves in the yard and remove all excess debris to ensure grass can grow back in spring.

Is becoming a homeowner on your list of resolutions?
