When it comes time to either move to your new college or you want to move back home, you may find that you’re going to need a lot more than just your car. This is when the moving truck companies come in. No, you don’t have to bring it back to the college area nor do you have to hire any professional help. You’ll be able to do it all on your own.
Start researching the rental truck companies
You’ll be surprised at how many rental truck companies there are out there when it comes to moving. Many people just think of U-haul when it comes down to renting a truck but there’s so much more than that. When it comes time to reserve, I always recommend that everyone checks out the following companies:
Look for online coupon codes
Every one of the websites mentioned above will enable you to get a quote directly on their website. When you compare the four companies, don’t reserve just yet because there are other ways to save. The next step that you want to take is to look for coupon codes online. When I was looking for a rental truck for one move, I found a nice 20% off coupon online. Simply search for “<company name> coupon codes”. Sites like RetailMeNot.com, etc will have codes for you to use.
It never hurts to ask
If you feel you want to work with one particular company but they don’t have the cheapest rates, call them up. Many of the above companies will match or beat the quote you get from another carrier. As long as you have it in writing, you should be able to get it for the same price you can get elsewhere. Also, when getting prices matched, ask for the AAA discount. If you don’t have a AAA card, see if one of your friends or family have one so that you can save even more.
These tips are great ways for you to save money on your rental truck rental. With so many people moving in and out each year, it makes sense to spend $100 or so to get a truck to tow away your belongings. Try some of the tips above and see how much you can save on your next move.
