5 Tips for Renting a Moving Truck

While we all have the stubborn spouse, friend, or family member that insists you can fit all of your belongings in a pick-up truck, you know better. Moving trucks are an essential to any big moving day, whether the destination is a new home or a new storage unit. Self-storage units are a great way to keep your belongings safe when you have run out of space in your home. Much like how picking your storage unit should be considered carefully, so should your choice in moving trucks to avoid being overcharged or your belongings becoming damaged. Next time you need to hire a moving truck company, consider the following:

  1. The size that you need, not too small and not too large
  2. Plan ahead and book early
  3. Compare prices (hours vs. mileage)
  4. Consider logistics of driving the truck
  5. Insure your belongings

There are many things to consider when choosing which moving truck option will work best for your needs. In some cases, it may be better to rent two smaller trucks that are easier to drive than one big truck. Finding the right fit for your situation will make for a smoother moving experience. It may even be good to consider hiring a moving company instead.
