We’ve all been there at one time in our lives – moving from one place to an other and not knowing where to find a decent moving truck rental location. Is there one close to you? Or do you have to truck halfway across the state or your city to find a moving truck rental outlet? Then of course, you need to figure out your moving truck rental budget.

There are so many things to try and keep track of when you are moving, that you would like to be able to just find a moving truck rental place that offers lots of choices of vans for your move and is reasonably priced as well. Too much to ask? Not if you know where to look and what you actually need to make your move a success.

Here’s a really great idea for locating a moving truck rental outlet and comparing prices while you’re at it. Get online and hunt for moving truck rental prices and lo and behold you will find some valuable pricing information that will make your day.

Another thing you should consider is whether you need to rent one way or return. Ask the moving truck rental outfit about drop off locations at your destination. Many will charge a small fee for this, but it might be well worth your while to do that rather than return the truck. This of course makes the most sense if you are moving intercity rather than interstate.

By the way, a lot of moving truck rental locations will also sell you packing boxes for your move. So if you are going to be renting a van from them for your move, then it makes sense to get the boxes from them. These boxes are the easy to take down and can be re-used or recycled.

Know what size van you want to rent before you go to pick it up. If you get one that is too small, you’ll wind up making more trips than you had intended to make. So rather than go for size efficiency and cost efficiency, check out what size van would work for your move. Better to have one that’s a bit too large than one that is too small and won’t take all your belongings with out them being smushed into a space way too small.

Another idea for your move would be to rent a van from a company that drives for you and brings you the truck, dolly and furniture blankets. You load, they drive. Not a bad alternative if you don’t have experience steering large trucks around.
