Why Choosing a Rental Truck Driving Service for Mid to Long-Distance Moves is the Wise Choice

October 11 20:15 2018

Greenwich, CT – National truck driving company Rented Truck Driver assists clients with their mid to long distance DIY moves by providing professional, thoroughly vetted truck drivers to handle the long drives. Having been in the business for many years, owner Frank Futie has plenty of experience with this type of move.

“Whether you just need to move a few belongings or need to relocate your entire home, it can be stressful,” says Futie. “And when deciding how to tackle your move, you’ll be faced with a variety of options.”

One such option is to use a full-service moving company. Renowned for being costly, there are a number of disadvantages to consider for those choosing this option. According to Futie, one major drawback is that the client’s property may be mixed in with other freight, or unloaded and reloaded causing damage and lost items. Additionally, the client has no control over when their belongings will be delivered, and most companies are inflexible if some of the items need to be dropped off at different addresses.

“Full service moving companies are notorious for many additional charges amounting to hundreds, even thousands more than your original quote,” adds Futie.

There’s also the option of choosing a container shipping company like PODS. This can turn out to be a good choice for anyone in need of storage, but it can be almost impossible to pin this type of company down to a delivery date.

Says Futie: “These companies are known to charge your credit card with unexplained weight, storage and delivery charges. Plus, their customer service agents are often very rude and unhelpful, and at times, even combative.”

An economical and efficient choice for most moves is DIY move to rent a truck and move yourself, but as Futie points out, driving a large moving truck long distance is not for everybody, for a variety of reasons:

  • A moving truck can be difficult to handle, especially if a car is being towed
  • Driving long hours can be tiring and dangerous – a moving truck is not nearly as comfortable as a car
  • City traffic in a large truck can be extremely intimidating
  • Safely driving through mountains or coping with bad weather is much more difficult in a truck
  • There are special highway rules that apply to trucks, along with height and weight restrictions
  • Trucks are excluded from most parkways and are not allowed on certain streets at certain times
  • In some states rental trucks have to stop at inspection stations
  • If the move exceeds one truck, an extra driver will be needed

“It makes total sense to use Rented Truck Driver,” concludes Futie. “Our drivers are thoroughly vetted with extensive background checks. They are trained professionals with years of experience driving large vehicles. And pricing is fair and transparent – you will never be charged any extra fees!”
