DIY Move

Do Rental Trucks Need To Stop At Weigh Stations? - We have all seen them, interstate weigh stations carefully taking readings on semi-trucks from across the country and making sure they fall within a given state’s weight parameters, helping to ensure safe travel along those highways and byways. Are rental trucks required to stop at these checkpoints as well? Learn what may be expected of you as you cross cross the country on your long-distance move, and how to plan for those eventualities.

How To Load A Moving Truck - Knowing beforehand how to load the moving truck as well as what size moving truck you should utilize is especially important as it will maximize the space you have and minimize any damage from occurring. Take a few minutes and learn the ins and outs of loading a moving truck. A successful move will mean taking the time to plan your packing and making sure there is no wasted space in the back of the truck.

Rental Truck Safety - Most of us have never driven anything like the truck you will be using for your upcoming long-distance move, so take a few moments to learn the ins and outs of rental truck operation. This will allow you to manage the vehicle as safely as possible, with the reward being an efficient and successful moving experience.

What Size Moving Truck Should You Use - Know your requirements before deciding what size truck you need to rent. Doing so allows you to maximize both cargo space as well as your wallet or pocketbook, and will make the moving process that much more efficient. If you are moving a five thousand square foot house, you are going to want something a bit more than what you used to move into that first apartment years before.
