If you are having to drive all of your furniture yourself to your new home, then start by researching moving truck rental companies in Montana. Montana is quite a popular state to move to because of its lower cost of living and beautiful wildlife, so begin by checking with many of the reputable Montana movers as to the best truck size and price for you.
Rental trucks come with their own form of agreement, so it is also important to read through all of your paperwork carefully. One of the first subject that will come into play when renting a truck is what type of insurance that you may need. These moving services vary in what they offer, but you want to make sure that you are covered wheel to wheel.
What if the worst were to happen and someone were to back in to the truck that you had written? You would be responsible for paying for it if you were not covered by insurance. It is possible for anyone to make mistakes, so to make yourself feel even more comfortable, try to insure this vehicle as quickly as possible so that you are not responsible for any type of unexpected damage when you are driving your furniture to your new residence.
Many Montana moving companies will be more than happy to give you free estimates on the services. You can start out by looking online, and there are websites available with contact forms that you can feel out for a quick estimate. This is something that will save you serious time instead of calling around based on the numbers that you find in the Yellow Pages. After that, take a clear plan of action in how you are going to pack. It is a great rule of thumb to pack larger boxes with lighter items, and also smaller boxes with heavier items.
If you pack a huge box full of books, then almost no one will be able to lift it without straining their back! It is a much better idea to pack a larger box with lighter items, like bedding, pillows, and other accessories around your home, and save the smaller boxes for books and denser items that are much heavier.
When you are securing your truck rental, also make sure to rent dollies from the moving service that you are working with. This will allow you to quickly pick up larger plasma televisions, entertainment centers, and stereos, and you can also stack items on top of each other on a dolly to move more at one time.
Consolidation is key if you want to be proactive in your relocation. You don’t want to waste time moving one box at a time, do you? If you are smart about the process, you can move quicker and cheaper than ever before!
Please leave us your contact information if you would like a free estimate on our services, which we will never release to another party without your knowledge.
