Moving trucks have been around in one way or the other for many years. As a matter of fact, many of today’s giants of the moving truck rental industry have their roots in small family owned local moving truck rental or moving companies of the past that have developed into nationwide and even multinational moving truck rental companies through the years. In the search for better services to offer their costumers, many of those relocation and transport companies have decided to hire their moving trucks as part of the services related to the self-moving phenomena that has gained so much popularity in the past years.
Depending on the size and the features of the moving truck rental you are considering to hire, the moving truck rental company will be able to begin estimating a price for your self-moving truck journey. Moving truck rental prices will also depend on the time of the year, of the month and of the week you will be transporting your belongings. The distance you plan to cover, as well as on the foreseen location for the drop off of the moving trucks to rent is also part of the considerations. In addition to this, moving truck rental prices will be higher if you decide to add to the contract some sort of insurance coverage (highly recommended), or a special service/convenience (such as padded walls, low loading decks, towing service, etc). Another factor that will affect the price for moving rental trucks is the kind of deal you will settle for. Some moving truck rental companies will offer unlimited mileage covered by a global set price, while most of them will give you a quote based on a standard pay-per day rate on moving truck rentals. The so-called one way moving trucks could also result less expensive to rent in a particular direction in relation to moving rental trucks you pick up and drop off at the same location; but do not give it for granted and ask your prospective moving truck rental company about these kinds of deals.
Moving trucks, just as moving truck rental companies, come in varied sizes and shapes. A local moving truck Rental Company is most likely to cover domestic relocations based within the same geographical area or state limits. Therefore, the moving trucks they will rent will be more suitable for small distance domestic moving. On the other hand, nationwide moving truck rental companies will offer a wider a more readily available variety of moving trucks that will undoubtedly be more efficient, safer and convenient for long distance self-moving truck driving. Determine your needs, buy around and drive safely!
