2 Reasons To Rent A Moving Truck For Your Move

When you are getting ready to move locally, there are a lot of things that you need to think about. One of them is whether or not you are going to rent a moving truck. You may think that you really don't need to rent one because you have a friend with a pickup truck, but there are good reasons for you to rent one. 

Fewer Trips

One of the biggest reasons to rent a moving truck for your short move is that you are only going to have to do one trip. That is going to be a lot easier on you and whoever is helping you move. All you need to do is to load up the truck, drive it to your new house, and then unload it. Not only are you going to have to deal with fewer trips, but it is also actually going to save you money because you aren't going to have to spend a lot of time driving back and forth. The less time and the fewer trips you have to deal with, the quicker and easier your move is going to be. And you want to do everything you can to make your move easier. 


Renting a moving truck for a local move is generally relatively inexpensive. You have to pay a rental fee, and if you go over a certain amount of miles, you have to pay for mileage, as well as making sure that you refill the gas to the same level it was when you rented the truck. If you were to hire movers to do the moving for you and have them do all the work for you, you would be looking at a lot more money leaving your pocket. But, renting a truck and talking to a few friends to help you move will save you money, and let you get moved from one place to the next relatively inexpensively. Of course, you may have to buy some pizza and drinks for your friends while they are helping you move, but overall, that's going to be less expensive for you. 

If you are getting ready for a short distance move, within your town or to a nearby town, you should consider renting a moving truck to help you get all your stuff from your old house to your new house. There are a lot of really good reasons for you to do that.

Learning About Your Move

One day a few years ago, I was sitting in my office wondering how to make more money. Fortunately, my questions were answered when my boss pulled me in to talk with me about moving to a new place. I was a little apprehensive at first, but after he explained the perks, I couldn't turn him down. I was really pleased with how things were going, so I took the job and started focusing on my move. We transferred to a new country, and it has been an adventure ever since. Read more on this website to learn about moving the smart way.
