Relocation - The Essentials Of Moving Truck Services!

Mar 8, 2008
The nature of your goods often determines how the consignment would be moved. If you are moving premises to just around the block, you will probably move most of your stuff in a car - maybe your own vehicle doing about two or three trips. On the other hand you will require the services of a truck if you are moving cross country. At the same time that would be a waste on money for you if you are moving just a street away. So it really varies situation to situation.

Rather than go for a packers and movers, you may simply use a truck service, where you do all the packing and they do the transportation. It works out cheaper for you - they take care of the fuel and you just pay for the space you use in the truck. By far the most difficult part here is to get your good packed in time for the dispatch. Truck companies do not like being asked to wait because they may have a few more deliveries to pick up. So plan well ahead for this.

On finding about the costs involved in moving truck companies, you will see prices varying with the day of week for the same distance and goods. Sundays are a little more expensive since many people wish to dispatch on the weekend. Keep in mind that when you are using the services of a moving truck rather than a packers and movers, the company does not send a helper to load the truck. You will probably have to ask a friend to help you with this, as drivers do not like loading and unloading - that is not a part and parcel of their job, though some may help you here and there.

Make a list to make sure you have loaded everything that needed to go. When moving, it is a great way to lose your excess baggage as well - maybe have a garage sale to get rid of the odds and ends you don't want in your new premises.

Finally, make sure there is enough space to take the goods out before the truck arrives. It is quite a strenuous process to stat moving furniture around after the truck arrives. To be on the safe side, you should aim to have the goods in the yard about half an hour before the truck's scheduled arrival time. The presence of a trolley will definitely make things easier when you have to load your goods.

It is always better to pack important documents in a brief case that you carry with you on flight or however you are moving yourself. Passports, dental and medical records and academic certificates are best kept in your own hands.
