Truck Rentals in and near Bonita Springs, Florida

Truck Rentals in Bonita Springs

Truck Rentals are especially helpful if you are embarking on your moving endeavor all on your lonesome.  Be aware that some trucks are solely for local moves and need to be returned to the same location from which you rented it, and other truck rentals have programs designed for you to drop off your rental truck in different locations, or even in different states.  At Beach Storage LLC, we offer our clients a Free Truck Rental when you move into your storage unit.  This is extremely beneficial for your storage move, and it really is a great deal.  Please call us any time for more details.

Truck Rental Costs

Be sure that you ask your truck rental company to disclose all of the costs.  There is nothing worse than finding out all the hidden charges in the middle of your move.  Many truck rental companies charge extra for you to rent essential moving equipment such as furniture pads, appliance and furniture dollies, tie down straps and other items you may find useful.  There may also be hidden fees for mileage, gas, exceeding a certain number of miles, etc.  Lift gates are great for heavy items, but they can be pricey and sometimes they may be in limited availability.  Be careful using them around your children as they can be dangerous.  Some companies also offer hitches and carries for your car if you need to move your car as well.

Insurance on your Truck Rental

Check with your car insurance company first.  Many large insurance companies will cover a rental car, but not a rental truck.  Nearly all truck rental companies will offer damage waivers to you for an extra fee.  Be sure to include insurance questions with your inquiry as you research truck rental companies.

Rental Truck Driving Tips

Like switching cars with your spouse for the day, any car takes time to adjust; and driving a rental truck is not quite the same as driving the family car.  Below we listed some things you will want to be aware of while driving a rental truck.

-Reversing can be difficult without back windows.  Get familiar with your area and plan ahead to minimize the amount of reversing you will be required to do.  When you are required to put the rental truck into reverse, you may want someone to stand behind the truck and guide you into your spot.

-Turning your rental truck will take much more space than your normal family car as rental trucks are longer and wider than most family cars.  Be sure to take into account that the box on the back of the truck extends much further than the wheelbase so you do not cause any damage to buildings should you make too sharp of a turn.

-Braking will be different as well as it will take much longer.  Tailgating is dangerous in any car, much less a moving truck, so be sure to stay at least three car lengths behind the car in front of you.  The three second rule is a good rule to go by.  Pick a checkpoint, and when the car in front of you passes it, count the seconds until the front of your car passes that checkpoint.  If it is less than three seconds, you will want to brake to allow more time between you and the car in front of you.  This not only protects you and other people on the road, but you don't want to have to brake too sharply to protect the items in your truck.  Damage can occur to your belongings if they fall over in the truck.

-Overhead Clearance can be a topic of concern with large rental trucks.  You will want to be sure to check your clearance if you need to go through a drive-thru, ATM, parking garages, low hanging trees and canopies and other low clearance circumstances.

Loading Tips for Truck Rentals

Loading your truck properly will minimize the risk of damage to your belongings as well as maximize your space and possibly save you money by saving you trips to your new destination or storage.  Remember to check our Lifting Tips page, and always practice safe lifting techniques.

-Parking as close to your front door as possible without causing damage to the building and without blocking other driveways or roads will minimize your carrying distance.  Just be sure to always leave enough room for the loading ramp.

-Lift Gates can be great for your heavy items; however, they can also be dangerous if they are not used properly.  Be sure to ask your rental company for a tutorial or thoroughly read the instructions before operating your lift gate.

-Large or Bulky Items should always be loaded into your rental truck or storage unit first.  Remember that you can stack your lighter items above, below, or on top of your large items to maximize the space you are using in your truck.

-Boxes should be stacked with the largest and heaviest at the bottom.  If you are able to stack everything to the top of your truck or storage unit, you can prohibit damage causing movement during transit and maximize your utilized space in your truck and storage unit.

-Sofas, mattresses, and table can be set on edge to maximize your space and tied to the inside wall of the truck.  You can put artwork, mirrors, and picture frames between mattresses to secure and pad them during your move, and you can use lightweight boxes to fill open spaces left by the curve in sofas.

-Protect your load to ensure that it doesn’t bounce and shift during transit.  Using tie down rope and bungees will secure your large items to the walls, and packing your items tightly will secure your boxes and other items so nothing falls and breaks during your move.  Also be sure to securely put the ramp back in place and latch and lock the doors before you drive away.
