Situations are different: you bought a house or decided to move to live in the village. But the need in these situations is one – you need to transport things. And then the question arises whether you need to use the services of a car transport services or rent a car yourself.
We all know how good it is to rent a car when traveling, because you are not dependent on the public transport schedule, and the rental company will pay for breakdowns through no fault of yours. Another significant advantage of renting a car is that you can use the weekly car rental service. This will help you save money.
So what to choose in the case of moving, renting a car or still the services of a transport company?
Speaking of car rental, we are not talking about exclusive cars or even SUVs, we mean the rental of trucks with a large trailer that can fit part or all of your belongings.
Choosing this method, should be said that it is more economical. Since you can find companies where you pay only for rent per hour, excluding gasoline. If you have a few things, then loading all things should not take more than 2 hours. Also, if you are going to move within the same city or its environs, then it will not take you much time either, therefore, renting a truck will be cheap.
When renting such a car, you should pay attention to its capacity and the dimensions of the furniture/things that you want to transport. We advise you to think it over in advance, on the website of truck rental companies, all the parameters and the maximum weight that they can carry are often written.
It will not be very pleasant if suddenly you are already renting a car, and during the loading of all things for transportation, it turns out that your two-meter cabinet, which cannot be disassembled, does not fit there.
Services of transport companies
This method is not cheap. Yes, you can find companies with a budget option, but we advise you to read reviews about this company on various forums, and, in principle, we advise you to look for more information about this company. So later it does not turn out that the company has not proven itself in the market and exists only because of unknowing people who rely on the cheapness of services.
The services of transport companies are perfect for those who move to other cities. Yes, the price of services of such companies is not small. But you don’t have to travel back and forth a million times, transporting things, while wasting your personal time.
Moreover, you can set a specific time by which you would like the car to arrive at its destination. Among other things, you can also purchase the service of loaders. So you do not have to deal with loading all things and furniture alone or call friends. Special workers will do it for you.
If you compare what is better for moving – renting a truck or the services of a transport company, then you should say so.
At this point, renting a truck wins, since you pay by the hour and do not pay extra for the work of the driver and loaders.
It all depends on how far you’re moving, of course. If the transfer point is close enough, then of course this is a truck rental. If you move to another city, then, of course, the transport company wins here, thanks to which you will not have to go to another city after hard work (loading things and furniture). But one more plus in the direction of the companies is the movers.
Thanks to truck rental, you will not be dependent on the time when employees will be free to load your furniture and things, as well as the driver, who will not have other orders.
We hope this article will help you make your choice.
