If you are moving houses, you are probably dreading the move itself given the amount of time and money that will be wasted during it. This is where you have another option i.e. hiring a moving truck and operating it yourself for the move. Companies like Gecko Logistics offers their services in trucks and carrier hires. However, before you make this decision, it is important that you ask yourself a couple of questions first to see if you are ready.
The first question to ask yourself or take into consideration is how far you are moving, this is important for numerous reasons. First of all, when you are renting a truck, you do not just pay for the rent, you also have to cover for the fuel, the toll charges, the mileage etc. So make your estimate first and then decide if you are actually saving any money by not choosing a moving company.
In case you need to cover long distances, you need to then ask yourself if you are equipped to drive and maneuver the truck through heavy traffic and the highway, so you need to be confident in your driving skills since you will have to cover all the damage.
Moving companies offer not just packing materials, but the packing itself, rental trucks do not; so, ask yourself if you have the experience to handle fragile items including loading and unloading them. If you are not, then debate whether you have enough social support to help you. If you are not sure about any two of these options, renting a truck might not be for you. However, if you are confident, you can contact the experts at Gecko Logistics so that you can get to know about their trailer and truck hire services.
