What to pay attention to when renting a moving truck – 2020 edition

A lot of people find renting a moving truck to be a much better option than hiring movers. We disagree. Nothing can beat hiring movers. But that is just what we think. If you are one of the people who prefer renting moving trucks when moving, we are all here for it! And that is why we decided to tell you more about the things that we think you should pay attention to when renting a moving truck. Some of the things are pretty obvious but some are not.

Make sure that the company is reliable

The same way people are searching for a reliable moving company you also need to search for a reliable service provider. There are plenty of companies out there. And not all of them are going to give you the same moving experience even if you are just renting a truck. Some companies purposely give bad trucks to people and then they blame them for “damages that they made” when in fact these damages were made by them. This has happened more often than you would think. And it is why you need to find a reliable company.

The truck size

When renting a moving truck you also need to pay attention to the size of the truck you are renting. A lot of the time people pay for a very big truck and they end up not using even half of it. There are trucks of different sizes for different types of moves. It is best to have someone from the company come to your home and tell you which size is the best for you. Having a truck that is too big can also be very risky. This leaves space for your things to tumble around. This means something might get damaged during the moving process. And that is something you definitely don’t want.

People have also had issues with renting a truck that is too small. And 90% of the time it was because they wanted to save up some money. But this is just how you are going to lose a lot of time. You’ll probably end up having to take two trips. And you know what they say, time is money. It is definitely the case with this too. So if you want to speed up your moving process, make sure the truck is the right size.

Make sure that the truck is clean

When renting a moving truck in 2020, you also need to pay special attention to hygiene. With the deadly virus that is going around, you want your truck to be clean and disinfected. If it doesn’t seem to be and you will most definitely notice if it isn’t, maybe searching for another company is a better idea. This is very important for those moving with toddlers and elderly people.
