moving truck rentalsA move can be a time of great opportunity and of great stress. Those who are able to physically move even the largest furniture pieces may not hire professional movers, choosing instead to take the time and effort to move their belongings themselves. For many people, moving truck rentals solve the problem of getting everything (or nearly everything) in one fell swoop. Here’s a brief checklist to help you evaluate if you need just a truck or if hiring professionals meets your needs better.

Knowing your particular needs in looking for moving truck rentals, you’ll be considering the following:

How much do you have to move? Moves can vary from a few pieces of furniture to an entire household. Consider the large items, such as beds, sofas, dining tables, pianos and other items that would require special consideration or protection when moving. This will also help you determine the size of the rental truck.

How long will you need the vehicle? For a cross-town relocation, moving truck rentals may only be needed for a day or maybe two. If you’re moving between cities, states, or cross-country, you’ll have to allow for driving time, the lower truck speed limits, and potential detours due to low overpasses en route.
