Preparation is Key to Time Management While Moving

May 18th 2015 at 10:48 PM

Moving can be very stressful. In order to make it less so, it is important to plan ahead and be prepared. You will have the ability to manage your time efficiently if you know some of the ins and outs of renting a U-Haul truck.

Once you know you are moving, get a quote for your rental truck. You should understand that there are certain times of the year when moving companies are the busiest. Those times are usually during the months of May through September. Also, the last weekend of the month is always busy because apartment leases terminate at the month’s end. If your move falls during any of these times, you will save yourself time by booking the truck early and understanding that rates may be higher.

Book the truck with a major credit card, and don’t forget to print out the quote. You can use it as a reference when you pick up the vehicle. Be sure to read the rental agreement and ask questions if you do not understand the contract. You should make yourself aware of any additional costs that could be incurred. A good understanding of the rental agreement will free you of unwanted surprises and possible headaches when you return the truck. Being blindsided takes away the ability to you has to make the best use of your time.

When you arrive to pick up your truck, bring your driver’s license and the credit card that you used to book the rental. Find out about insurance coverage, and pay for additional insurance if you think you will need it. Most automobile policies do not cover renting moving trucks.

Before you drive the truck off the lot, be sure to inspect it. Check to make sure that the brake lights work. It’s a good idea to test the brakes. If you paid for blankets and a dolly, check to make sure that those items have been included.

Nothing is more frustrating than losing time by not being prepared or completely informed. Moving is hard enough, and wasting time just might be the worst part about the moving process. Preparation is time well spent and will make for a successful and pain-free move. Please visit this website for additional information on U-haul trucks in Salinas.
