Where to Start the Search: One Way Moving Truck Rental

If you are moving somewhere and plan to never look back, (at least with all your belongings that is), one way moving truck rental may be the way to go. Just like booking a one way plane ticket, one way moving truck rental transports your belongings from point A to point B, but does not return to its original storage facility.

Just like standard two way moving truck services, one way moving truck rental services typically come with fixed rates depending on the length of time you need them, the mileage they will travel, and the size of the truck itself. There are few moving services that solely offer one way moving truck rental, so shop around at multiple locations before making your decision.

A few tips when searching for a one way moving truck rental (or two way, if need be):

First, determine the size truck you will need.

Assess how many larger pieces like dressers, beds, or desks you will need moved, how many boxes you have, etc. Some agencies use a fixed rate based on mileage, others based on size, so be sure to search around for an appropriate fit for both your budget and your belongings.

Call between 3 to 5 agencies.

Calling an agency for a quote does not marry you to them, so explore all of your options. Use recommendations from friends or customer review websites, and call to get a quote. Be sure to include specifics and details of your move, such as distance, time of the week, and things that will need moving. Some agencies charge more on weekends than week days, by the mile, or amount of man power needed. The more they know, the easier it will be to quote you.

In one way moving truck rental, or two way, be sure to thoroughly inspect your vehicle before signing the agreement. Assess for any previous damage done to the vehicle, the amount of gas and mileage that it already has, and record it. Taking the time to do this will protect you against any unwanted insurance or damage issues.

Wherever the move, be sure to put some extra research into the company you choose. Remember, these are your belongings, so the extra research will help ensure their safe arrival at your new destination.
