3 Reasons a Pickup Rental is a Service You Didn’t Know You Need
If you are planning to move or your job requires you to transport around heavy or bulky equipment like for example, working in production or theatre to bring around props or filming equipment, hiring a moving company to ease the physical burden can definitely be tempting.
However, will the extra costs incurred be worth it as compared to renting a moving truck where you can be more in control of everything and ensure a safe and smooth move of your things?
Here are three reasons why a pickup rental is a service you did not know you need:
Convenience of Renting a Pickup Truck
Other than the reasons shared above, renting a pickup truck can be very convenient if you only need it for a minimal and specific times and if you are facilitating a move that is on the smaller scale.
You should first set aside the number of items you plan to move and ascertain how much space each of these things takes. You might find yourself stuck in the dilemma of not being able to fit all these things into your car or renting a lorry that is too big.
If you cannot fill half of the space of the lorry then it may not be the most economically sensible choice. A pickup truck will be the more appropriate choice to help you move your load safely and within your budget.
Cost Efficiency in Renting your own Pickup Truck
If you are on a tight budget, renting your own pickup truck to facilitate the move will be a more cost-effective choice as the expenses incurred from hiring movers can quickly escalate and exceed your intended budget.
The average cost of moving the contents of an average-sized home of 3-room HDB flat is around S$500. However, this is based on an accurate estimate of the number of items you have to minimise the number of trips the moving company has to make. If the van has to make more than five trips, or if you have a substantial amount of things to move, the cost can shoot up to as high as S$3,000!
Thus, if you do not have that many bulky items to move, it will be much more cost-efficient to move everything on your own. If your furniture can be dismantled, you can also do it on your own and independently transport it with your pickup truck. As the cost of renting is normally per day, the number of trips you will have to make will not have to incur any additional costs to complete your move.
Cross-terrain Capabilities of a Pickup Truck
Pickup trucks have cross-terrain capabilities which lets you travel across uneven grounds or steep slopes like mud or sand, without much difficulty. This makes it a good choice for a road trip with friends or family when you need additional space to load your belongings without worrying about your vehicle getting stuck anywhere on the road.
It is also important to take note that even the smaller lorries might not be able to fit the height limit of entrances to buildings and houses. Therefore, you should check the height requirements of the place you are transporting the items to and to be safe, get a pickup truck which is smaller and likely to fit in these spaces instead.
