Whether you’re moving across the road, or across the Sunshine Coast; a rental truck can provide an affordable and effective solution. With an abundance of rental company options on the Sunshine Coast, the choice is often difficult. Find a price that suits your budget, and stick to it. You will want to book the truck well in advance to avoid any hassles or availability changes.

Your ideal truck size will depend completely on the number of rooms of furniture you intend to move. The smaller trucks can be utilised if you intend on moving office furniture or equipment, while the larger trucks should be utilised if you intend on moving furniture from multiple rooms. Be sure to ask the rental provider if you are uncertain or concerned about how much you will be able to fit in the truck.

There can be a variety of insurance options available, including cargo insurance, accident insurance, loss insurance and damage insurance. Rental trucks are a convenient and affordable method of shifting your furniture. Rental costs will ultimately depend on the size of the truck you require and the distance travelled.

Usually the rental provider will walk through the vehicle inspection with you, addressing any damage to the vehicle with you. This practice is to ensure ultimate transparency and a mutual awareness of the dents, scratches and faults the vehicle has prior to usage. There are a number of crucial accessories that will make your moving process run smoother and faster:

  • Storage boxes
  • Blankets
  • Hand truck (or dolly)
  • Packing tape
  • Bubble wrap
  • Ropes

You have the ability of browsing directories and search-engines for local Sunshine Coast rental providers, but it may just be easier to ask your friends and family. Personal experiences with rental providers will give you more insight and direction than any bias information you may find online. Once you have a sound selection of rental companies, research their pricing structure, reputation and range more thoroughly.

It is fairly important to note that like most thing, you do get what you pay for. If you have the budget to select the more expensive, higher quality car, it is recommended you do. The potential costs that pose a risk are not worth the trouble. The rental service is usually reflected in the service price.
