How to Avoid Common Moving Truck Problems

On moving day, one of the most important elements you need to have complete confidence in is your moving truck. 

The moving truck is responsible for safely, efficiently and cost-effectively transporting all your household items to your new home. Without proper research, hiring a moving truck can easily become a headache. 

We’ve curated a list of easy ‘How to Avoid Common Moving Truck Problems’, in hopes your moving experience can be a stress-free one.

Choosing your Truck

One of the first things you’ll need to decide when moving is the size of the truck you’ll need. When looking at removalist companies, it is important to understand the different truck sizes they offer. 

You’ll need to take careful account for the size of your home, the number of bedrooms and the amount of furniture you plan to transport. Never underestimate how much stuff you have. When choosing a truck, we recommend selecting one with 10% more room than you think you’ll need. This way you will avoid extra fees and added stress if your items don’t fit.

Secure your Booking as Early as Possible

There’s nothing worse than having everything packed and ready to go, with no trucks available for use. It’s always a good idea to organise your moving truck as soon as possible, this allows plenty of time for your removalist company to help you select a truck best suited to your needs.

Hidden Extra Costs

Sometimes when you see something that is too good to be true, it really is. Some removalist companies will make their prices look smaller through concealing additional fees. It’s always important to do thorough research and ensure absolutely everything is up-front with your quote.
