MOVING TRUCK RENTAL IN VANCOUVER VS MOVING COMPANIES

picture of moving truck rental
It is moving season, and many people plan to consider renting a moving van, sometimes even a cargo van. However, some people prefer to hire professional moving companies in Lower Mainland, Fraser Valley BC, Vancouver Island, or other surrounding areas.

But, which one do you think is a better choice for a stress-free move?

Why do we hire a moving company?

  • Rental moving trucks or,
  • Hiring a reputable moving company on your moving day?

The answer depends on your plan and preparation. There are many different reasons to favour either the “moving truck rental” or the “moving companies” option. It all depends on the following questions.

  • How much is the cost of moving truck rentals in Vancouver and surrounding areas?
  • How much does it cost to rent a truck per day?
  • What is the cost to rent u haul (as the cheapest example of a rental truck company) for one day?
  • Do you know about packing your moving truck?
  • Do you know about preparing your furniture for loading as much as a professional mover?
  • Is your move a residential move or a commercial move?
  • Is your move a local move or a long-distance move?

and many more questions

scenario 1:moving equipment at your rental moving truck, and movers

In the Lower Mainland, you have a huge rental truck selection. For example, you can choose your moving truck rental in North Vancouver or Driving Force in Burnaby.

The price of rental moving trucks such as U-haul, Penske, Driving Force, Budget, Discount, seems cheaper than the moving companies. However, none of these rental trucks come with moving supplies or moving equipment. On the other hand, while moving companies’ price seems more expensive, they come with all the required moving supplies and equipment.

Also, moving companies come with professional movers, the biggest difference between the two options. In other words, when you rent a moving van or moving truck, you still need to obtain supplies, equipment, and professional movers separately.

scenario 2:long trip with your moving van rental

Imagine you want to move from Vancouver, Lower Mainland to Vancouver Island, Victoria, Nanaimo, Sechelt, in British Columbia. In fact, you have two choices of “rental moving truck ” or “moving companies.” Rental trucks are cheaper. Also, BC Ferries charges less when you use a rental truck rather than a commercial vehicle.

In a large move, you need to know how to load the rental truck efficiently. You will still need to rent moving blankets and other equipment. Besides, it would help if you gathered a team to assist you in loading the truck.

You will also need the second moving team to unload the rental truck in Victoria. Needless to say, the second team has no idea how your belongings were loaded in Vancouver and increasing the chance of damages during the process.

Driving Skills

If you plan on using a rental truck, you will have to drive a large moving van. In some circumstances, special skills are required. Otherwise, you may end up paying hefty damages for your rental truck.

conclusion

in conclusion, choosing between “moving truck rental” or “moving companies” depends entirely on your plan, budget, and many other factors. Either way, our moving company can assist you either as a full-service company or by providing a moving team to assist you in loading your rental truck. Particularly when you have an item such as a piano that needs skilled movers.

Also, You prefer to make most of your move with your friends and family, instead of using a moving truck rental in Surrey, BC, for example.
