One of the best ways to move your things inexpensively is to rent a U-Haul truck. If you rent a truck, you can save money by loading up your household items on your own. You can also save a considerable amount of money if you drive the truck to your destination. This can save you the hassle from hiring a moving company. All you need is a few friends you trust or family members to help you pack up your items. They can also help you load up your belongings onto the truck and help you unload the items into your house.
How to Rent a U-Haul Truck
Finding a U-Haul truck to rent is fairly easy. You can either search online or you can contact a storage company directly to see if they provide rental trucks. If you’re in the process of moving and you want to store items at a storage facility, this may be a good option for you. Many storage companies now provide moving truck rentals at affordable rates. If you’re renting a U-Haul truck, make sure you chose one from a storage company that is an authorized dealer.
When you decide to rent a U-Haul truck, make sure you find out the cost and if they charge per mile. There shouldn’t be any surprises or hidden fees involved when renting a moving truck. More importantly, make sure the company provides you with a written contract that outlines everything that you will receive – including the company’s terms and conditions. Make sure you save a copy of the contract for future reference.
Packing for Your Move
Packing can seem like a lot of work, but if you start early by purchasing boxes and other packing materials, you’ll be ahead of the game on the day of your move.
Finding the Right Truck Size
If you’re unsure of what truck size you need, make sure you contact the storage company to assist you further. Obviously, for a small move that contains just a few boxes, you’ll need a smaller sized truck. For a large move, you’ll need a large moving truck. The worse thing is renting the wrong size truck. So, make sure you reserve the right size truck well in advance before your moving day.
