At 5 Star Truck Rental, we do our best to make the moving process simple and uncomplicated for our customers. Whether you’re moving to a new home or relocating your business to the Burbank area, we understand the logistics involved. With this in mind, we offer five features with each of our moving truck rentals that may be helpful when planning your next move.

5 Features to Consider When Renting a Moving Truck

1. Rear Roll-Up Doors

Our moving trucks feature rear roll-up doors rather than traditional swing doors. Roll-up doors open and close quickly and are easy to operate. They also allow for more secure storage of personal or commercial belongings. Swing doors can unlatch while driving if not properly locked and secured.

2. Forklift Package

If you are using a forklift to load contents in one of our lift-gate truck rentals, ask about our forklift package. We can add cross-members, scuff boards, scuff rails, and a steel rear-end plate to any of our moving truck rentals. Not only do they help in reinforcing the truck while loading with a forklift, but they also assist in using the space wisely by efficiently packing furniture and equipment.

3. Tie-Down Slats

Tie-down slats can make a huge difference in safely securing your contents while transporting them to their new location. We also have tie-downs and straps that can be used to secure appliances, furniture, or heavy boxes to the slats. Your cargo will remain secure while loading and driving which can minimize damage to your belongings.

4. Load Capacity

5-Star Truck Rental stocks two sizes of moving trucks in our inventory — 16-foot and 26-foot trucks. Our 16-foot trucks carry up to 3,500 pounds and our 26-foot moving trucks boast up to 10,000 pounds of load capacity. You can easily fit up to three rooms of furniture in each truck, which can greatly reduce the time spent relocating from one place to another.

5. Lift Gates

Many of our customers rent our moving trucks because of the mechanical lift gates. This added accessory makes it easy to load and unload refrigerators, couches, dressers, washers and dryers, and much more. Plus, they are a lifesaver if you have reduced physical capacity and struggle to move heavy items.
