One Way Truck vs. Round Trip Truck
Simply said, a one way truck is a rental method that allows you to rent a truck in a given state and return it at the destination state to a branch of the same company in that area. These rentals are very popular among people whom will move far away from their current location and find it illogical to drive all the way back to the original location to return the truck. If you think about it, it does not make any sense.
One way truck rentals have become so popular that some moving companies even have representative branches in nearly every single state. Round trip rentals besides making you waste more money on the renting of the truck itself, will make you lose time unnecessarily and spend more money in fuel when you see yourself forced to return the truck to the original location, and then even have to spend money again purchasing a plain or bus ticket.
It is a very simple procedure to rent one way trucks. First, you will need to show a picture id and make the agreed payment along with a deposit in order to get the keys of the truck. It is advisable to pay for the insurance plans some companies offer in case you accidentally dent, scratch, or damage the vehicle somehow. That way you will be covered and will not have to pay for the damages. Once you return the truck at the destination, you will get your deposit back. Have in mind that if you do not return the truck on time, they may hold some money off your deposit. Usually things run smoothly as long as you return it on time and take the insurance fee.
Since this is a growing business and there more companies that offer this service each year, it is important to do some research in order to get the best deal possible. Some things to consider are for example, having to return the truck in a location that is not that close from your destination. Sometimes it may be a different city within the same state, which is still closer than having to go back to the previous location. Try to look for a company that has a representative as close from your destination as possible in order to save yourself time. Some companies agree to give huge discounts when the return location is too far away from your destination, this can be used in your own advantage.
One way moving trucks rentals offer prices based on your original location and your destination. That is why it is important to browse through many companies and find the best deal possible. The numbers of vehicles they have available in that moment will also have an enormous influence in the final price. These are small but important things to keep in mind when you are comparing one way rental versus round trip rentals.
There is nothing more gratifying than making a single trip with all your things, returning it and taking a cab back to your new home.
