If you’re moving a distance that requires a moving truck and a long drive, then you have a lot of planning to do. In addition to reserving and picking up your rental van or rental truck, you may also need to hire movers, start packing, and plan your route. During the drive, it’s important that you’re comfortable and focused. Here are some tips for staying comfortable in a rental truck during your move–
One way to really make a road trip uncomfortable is to try to fit too much in too small of a space. At Elite Truck Rental, our rental trucks have cab seating for three. If you’re going to be using all three seats, we recommend that you put additional items, such as a personal bag for an overnight stay at a hotel along the way, in a separate location (i.e., the back of the rental truck).
Snacks and road trips go hand-in-hand, so make sure you stock up before you hit the road. While you may be tempted to go for unhealthy snacks and beverages, like soda, try to limit yourself and choose healthier options instead. When you’re driving, maintaining consistent energy levels is much better (and safer!) than getting a sugar or caffeine spike. And don’t forget to drink plenty of water!
Not all discomfort is physical – if you get lost, aren’t sure where you’ll stop for gas, or haven’t mapped out food and overnight rest stops, you’re likely to be pretty stressed. Fortunately, these concerns can be mitigated simply by taking the time to plan your route in advance.
Do you have a favorite podcast that you’re ready to listen to? Or a book on tape you’ve been dying to hear? Or a favorite music artist? Stay comfortable and content throughout your drive by getting your music ready in advance. The last thing that you want to do is be fiddling with dials and Bluetooth while you’re in motion.
Finally, for extra comfort and peace of mind, choose a van or truck rental from Elite Truck Rental. Our rental trucks and vans are designed with our customers in mind, as are our policies.
