Here are some guidelines to select the best van for your move. Often the fridge and freezer are built in now, so this is a tip only for those that you are moving to your new house. Switch them off the day before your move, defrost and unplug so that they can be moved easily and safely. Put anything you want to take food-wise into cool bags or an ice box for the move itself – and always allow the fridge/freezer to stand for a while in its new home before switching it back on.
Moving house costs. A lot. Why would you want to add to this cost by paying to move things you don’t use or need? We all have items in our house that have long been forgotten – usually ending up in the garage, loft or shed, but they could be lurking anywhere. Before you start your packing is the perfect time to go through everything and have a good sort out. Moving is a fresh start, so the last thing you want to take with you are things that you don’t need or use any longer. Decluttering before you sell means that you only move what you really need – and you will not only save money by doing so, but you will also save time in the new house by not having to unpack and deal with all that stuff in the future. I call that a win-win!

Frequently Asked Questions : What is involved in renting a car? The Abel rental experience is something that we’re particularly proud of, we even have a quick 2min video that you can watch by clicking here. You simply place your booking via our website, phone the reservations centre or visit one of our locations. Once your booking is made all the main driver needs is a credit card in their name with enough funds for the pre authorisation and an open driving licence. The Abel customer service officer will walk you through the rental agreement and options available. Once the rental agreement is signed we will walk around and check the vehicle for damage and you’re on the road! Once you return we check the vehicle is the same condition as it went out and we’re done. Easy. More info on truck rental Brisbane can be found at our website.
What is the bond / pre authorisation and how long is held for? The bond (which is $500 for all vehicles) is required for every rental, it is not held by Abel. It’s simply verification to us that there are funds available and the credit card is legitimate. The amount is held by your bank and is released depending on their release schedule. Abel is never in control of the location or the release of these funds. The release time is within 7 business days if you bank with NAB, CBA, Westpac or ANZ; within 14 business days if you bank with BOQ, Suncorp, St George, Citibank, Heritage, BankWest or Bendigo. All credit unions or international banks can take up to 21 business days.
