The Craftsman CM1800 is an excellent pressure washer in terms of cleaning performance, and it is very easy to use. In many ways, it's a better machine than our top pick, the RYOBI RY14122, particularly regarding assembly and power cord management.
The Portland 63254, available exclusively at Harbor Freight, is a capable, if average, electric pressure washer for budget-conscious homeowners.
We chose to test the RYOBI RY14122 because of its overwhelmingly positive customer reviews on the RYOBI and Home Depot websites. Through our own tests and experiences, we found that it excels in several ways, particularly its ease of use and cleaning performance.
The Karcher K 3 Follow Me is a compact electric pressure washer with great cleaning performance, but it was more difficult to use than most other models we tested. It cost around $120 at the time of testing, which is the average price among the electric pressure washers we reviewed.
The battery-powered WORX Hydroshot WG629 is unique among the electric pressure washers we tested, as almost every one of its features leans toward maximizing portability.
The Greenworks GPW1501 is the only pressure washer we tested you can buy for under $80 – about half as much as the RYOBI RY14122, the top performer in our tests.
The AR Blue Clean is a clear example of what you get when you buy a good, albeit average, pressure washer. While it does a fine job cleaning, it was more difficult to handle than half of the units we tested. It has good accessories, though its warranty is shorter than we'd like.
During our evaluation, SMARTBOX had lower prices than more well known services like U-Pack. Its one container size is on the smaller side, though, so for larger moves you need to reserve multiple containers.
After comparing moving containers on a variety of factors, including price, speed and availability, we determined that U-Haul is the best option for moving containers. U-Haul is most well-known for its moving trucks, but it also offers containers, which are called U-Boxes.
1-800-PACK-RAT has a broad service range and container options for moves of all sizes. Price is about average though, and there are no substantial bargains.
If you’re planning a local move within the same city or metro area, Go Mini’s is well worth considering.
When looking for a moving container, price is one of the most important considerations. While Zippy Shell has a few helpful features, it is one of the most expensive container companies we reviewed.
PODS is one of the most well-known moving container companies. It has locations in over 20,000 cities and even offers service in Canada and Australia.
The Gama Sonic Barn Outdoor Wall Sconce is solar outdoor lighting with a body cast of rust-proof aluminum and a stylish matte-brown finish to match many exterior decors. Because it mounts on a wall, it takes up no space and can provide needed lighting for dark areas around a home, garage or barn.
