Benefits of using DIY moving truck rental companies
Moving isn’t usually a fun time, because even if you’re looking forward to relocating, it’s the moving that’s often the sticking point. So one of the biggest decisions you’ll need to make is whether to choose a regular transport company or one of the DIY moving truck rental companies.
An increasing number of people are opting to manage their own relocation for three very simple reasons. First, you have complete control over your move, second, you can save a lot of money, and third, you have much more flexibility and options for your move.
Keep control of your move
One of the big benefits of DIY moving truck rental companies is that your relocation is under your control. This means that you can pack everything yourself and know where it’s located on the truck, even selecting the best spots on the truck for specific items. When you unload the truck you can place everything straight into the right rooms instead of trying to sort it all out afterwards.
Save lots of money
If you are on a budget, then a DIY move is your best option and hiring your own truck will save you a significant amount of money. All you need to pay for is the hire of the truck, not the labour involved in loading and unloading the truck. So it’s a very popular option with many people in south-east Queensland.
More options & flexibility
With DIY moving truck rental companies you decide when you want to move, because you don’t have to fit into a transport company’s schedule. You can even stop off on the way to break up a long trip and take as long as you want to drive to your new destination. Then you can take a day or two to unload the truck, giving you time to recover and make sure that all your belongings are in the right place before returning the truck.
3 Tips for finding the best moving truck rental company
Next, let’s take a look at some of the factors you need to consider when comparing moving truck rental companies, so you find the one that’s best for your needs.
What types of trucks are available?
Now it’s time to decide on the type of truck you need for your move. There are a few choices on the market and at Andy’s Auto Rentals, we have a great range of vans and trucks that are perfect for a DIY move (we are one of the best moving truck rental companies in south-east Queensland!). In general these are split between utility vans and trucks, but let’s take a closer look at what we have on offer.
Don’t forget to compare prices
Once you have decided to opt for a DIY move, you are already ahead of the game as far as saving money is concerned. However, there are still significant differences in the costs charged by moving truck rental companies, so you need to be on your toes. At Andy’s Auto Rentals we make sure that our prices are very competitive and consider ourselves the best value hire company in south-east Queensland. If you want to check out our prices, either fill in the availability form on our website, which also gives you our prices for that vehicle or give us a call.
Pickup and drop off points
If you hire a truck at Logan because you’re moving to Tweed Heads, the last thing you want to do at the end of a long day of loading and unloading is to drive the truck all the way back to Logan! So we make it easy for our customers by giving them the option of dropping off their hire vehicle at one of our other offices. Sometimes you need to pay a small additional fee for this service, but it’s nothing compared to the convenience of dropping the vehicle off close to your destination.
