Questions To Ask Before Renting A Moving Truck

by Tom James Bargain Car, Truck & Van Rentals

If you’re relocating your office or simply transporting your essentials from one place to another, you need to hire truck rental in West Chester. 

The thought of renting a truck might seem too big of a deal, however, it is not that troublesome as it seems. 

You can make yourself a good deal if you just know what nitty-gritties to keep in mind while talking to a rental dealer.

3 Questions To Ask While Renting A Moving Truck 

  1. When do I need a truck?

The first question to ask is one for yourself. Yes, you need to plan for a rental truck way ahead of time, as getting one last minute might be a hassle. 

Summer is usually the most common time of the year to move, which is why booking between Memorial Day and Labor Day might be highly impossible. 

If you’re planning to move sometime during the end of the month, you should know that this is a particularly busy time and booking at the last minute will land you nowhere.

 Thus, booking weeks in advance may seem like a safe bet. 

  1. What are the logistics I need to consider?

If you’re renting a truck, you need to be clear about certain requirements and prohibitions such as the roads you’ll be driving on.

Some roads do prohibit trucks, so you’ll need to be careful not to include them in your travel route. 

Moreover, be sure to carry your driver’s license and major credit card(s) along on the day of the rental. 

Before you take off, you should run a thorough check for any damages, so that you are not blamed or charged for them later on.

Finally, you should check the loading ramp of the rental truck. Ensuring that it slides out easily - is important for a successful moving day. 

  1. Am I insured?

What if you met with an accident with another vehicle while driving the rental truck or got mugged off your belongings?

We hope the very best for you, but we also want you to be prepared for the worst of conditions. 

Here’s when renting truck using a credit card won’t be sufficient, as your card issuer does not provide insurance on a rental moving truck even though it does on a rental car. 

More often than not, your home and auto insurance policies would provide you some coverage. However, you should check with your insurance company if you need any supplemental coverage just to be on the safe side.

Although your car insurance policy covers a moving truck, be careful for any exclusions based on the size. 

If the vehicle you’ve chosen isn’t covered under any other insurance, then you always have the truck rental company to turn to.
