How to Prepare for Your Move When You Are Renting a Uhaul Truck

Whether you are moving a far distance across the country, or you are doing a move across town, a Uhaul truck rental will make it possible to get your belongings from one place to another. You'll want to figure out what size of truck you need, and determine whether you are going one way and need to drop the Uhaul off at another location. Talk to your Uhaul provider about your options, as the smaller rental vehicles are to be used locally, while a large rental truck can be brought far distances.

No matter what you need to move or how far you need to do it, a rental truck is going to give you what you need to move successfully.

Discuss the Need for Additional Days

You may need to rent a Uhaul rental truck for more than a day or two when you are traveling a far distance. Talk to your representative about adding on days or mileage as needed. If you run into a delay while moving, make sure that you contact Uhaul during your trip to add on any additional time that you need. Problems come up, and you can extend your rental by calling the facility where your rental originated from.

Pack Your Belongings with Sturdy Boxes

As you get ready to move, pack as many of your belongings in sturdy, uniform sized boxes that you can. This makes it easier to pack up the truck and stack boxes in your home as you start packing. 

Know the Passenger Limit of Your Rental

Some moving trucks allow one passenger, while others have room for two. Check with your Uhaul truck rental services to determine how many people can fit in the truck you are renting so that you can plan your trip accordingly.

Make Your Move Easier

As you are packing up your rental truck, consider taking apart large furniture. Pack your biggest and heaviest items first. Use padding, straps, and blankets to protect your items whenever necessary. Place heavy items as close to the cab as possible. Any small items or boxes that you have should be packed last.

When you are getting ready for a move across town or across the country, finding the right rental truck will make all the difference. Figure out how much stuff you are moving, and don't be afraid to get a truck a little larger than you think you need.
