Important Questions to Ask When Renting a Moving Truck
Moving is not something that you do everyday! It can be an intimidating process filled with endless checklists. When you add in the emotional upheaval of leaving behind an old life and place to start a new chapter, you can expect to be stressed and not in your best decision-making mind!
Check out some rental questions to consider as you move forward with your move:
- Are there any special or specific requirements for renting a truck or van? You want to go into any type of lease or agreement with your eyes wide open. Take the time to read any documents and ask us questions, so you are good to go.
- Who can get behind the wheel when I am out on the road? Driving can get exhausting, especially as you are maneuvering a larger vehicle weighed down with stuff. If you are concerned about being the only person on the rental, talk to us about adding an additional driver. Then you can take turns behind the wheel as needed for breaks and down time. Please bring your driver’s license with you and any other drivers as well.
- What do I need to do in terms of insurance? First and foremost, check in with your own insurance company, so you understand what is included for moving truck rentals. If you would like additional coverage or are not comfortable with what your own insurance company provides, talk to us about our offerings.
- What size trucks are available, and can I rent a specific size for my move? Different sizes fit different moves. A large 24-foot truck is perfect for homes that have nine rooms or more. 16-foot and 15-foot trucks are best for three to 5 rooms. At Elite Truck Rental, we have a fleet of 150 vehicles, and we understand and know all about our trucks and what fits what. We are happy to offer our advice as needed.
- Do you also have supplies available? You can pick up moving boxes in a variety of sizes to help you pack up your belongings before your moving day. We also tape and E-track straps. You can rent a pallet jack, appliance dolly, 4-wheel dolly or furniture pads as well.
- How long can I rent a moving truck for? Our team understands that moving is a process. We offer flexibility, depending on your needs. You can rent a moving vehicle for just one day, a week or even more. Just let us know and we will try our best to make it work.
