When planning a move in the Los Angeles area, there are some helpful tips that will make the process much easier for you and your family. 5 Star Truck Rental recommends following the guidelines below for renting a moving truck that is perfect for your needs.

4 Helpful Tips When Renting a Moving Truck

1. Moving Truck Size

Before you reserve a moving truck rental, find out what size you’ll need for hauling your household goods. You don’t want to rent a truck that’s too small, but you also don’t want to spend more than needed on your rental. Our staff can help you estimate what size truck you should reserve based on the number of rooms in your home and the number of goods and furniture you are transporting from one place to another. 

2. Quotes & Reservations

Once you know the best truck size for your needs, call us for a quote or you can conveniently reserve online. The busiest time for moving tends to be May through September, so it’s especially important to reserve a moving truck as soon as possible if you’re moving during these months.

3. Fine Print

When completing the rental transaction, be sure to read the fine print. You want to understand the complete cost of the moving truck rental and what the rental includes. At 5 Star, we pride ourselves on being completely up-front with all of our pricing and included amenities. If you have any questions before making the final reservation, simply ask. We’ll be more than happy to answer them all.

4. Truck Condition

Before you drive off the lot, give the truck a solid inspection inside and out. Our trucks are well-maintained and cleaned between each rental. They come equipped with power steering and air conditioning. Feel free to check the brake lights or make sure the air conditioning is working before you drive it off the lot. We want to be sure you are completely satisfied with your truck rental.
