Top 5 Reasons for Renting A Truck

in Truck

There are five main, proven reasons why an individual would want to be involved in a truck rental arrangement. A truck rental is usually considered solely for a variety of business and commercial purposes, but there can be personalized, noncommercial reasons as well.

1. Moving

When most people think of truck rentals, their mind goes to renting one of those major brand name moving trucks when a person or family is involved in relocating from one house, apartment or condominium to another. In fact, this is a substantive part of the big business, truck rental industry. Families pack up their personal household belongings in boxes and then call in and hire a moving crew to both load and drive the rented truck to their new destination, which could be right across town or across the entire country. Without such a rental, most of these types of moves would be impossible.

2. Business Hauling

Many highly successful businesses in all different types of industries don't ever own any of their trucks. But their businesses dictate the fact that certain types of trucks are absolutely necessary. So they choose to rent them instead. Some reasons they might decide to do this is so they don't have to pay either truck repair costs or truck insurance premiums or they simply don't have the space to park trucks on their property on a daily basis.

3. Large, Personal Transportation

Some individuals rent trucks because they don't own one but need a truck to transport particularly huge items from one place to another. They're not specifically moving their families to another location, they're just moving one of more very large things. These things could include a grand piano, horses, cows and other farm animals, or even a gigantic dining table or colossal size TV set that they're delivering to someone after placing a classified ad online to sell it. These things happen every day by using rented trucks.

4. Refrigeration Capacity

Many businesses either manufacture, sell and transport perishables. Food especially. Fruits, vegetables, meats and dairy products such as milk, cream, eggs and cheese require 24 hour refrigeration, so just any type of truck won't do. So these businesses rent refrigerated trucks either by the hour, day, week or month because it can be less expensive than owning a fleet of them. These refrigerated trucks are an absolute necessity for their products to be delivered fresh and free of any harmful bacteria or other types of contamination that can occur at normal room or hot, outdoor temperatures.

5. No Other Vehicle Will Suffice

It's just a plain and simple fact: sometimes no other vehicle but a truck of a certain size and internal capacity will be adequate to transport specific products. A small businessman who owns an appliance shop, for example, will require at least one delivery truck of a certain length and width to adequately and safaely transport his sold refrigerators, freezers, ranges, washers, dryers and dishwashers. It's highly likely such an individual who operates on a tight budget can't possibly afford to own a business delivery truck so he must rent one. The same philosophy holds true for such small business operations such as some furniture stores, antique shops, many art galleries, and a multitude of contractors such as carpenters, electricians, plumbers, carpet and flooring companies and roofers.
