Can't Haul Your Belongings For An Out Of State Move? Hire An Owner Operated Trucking Company

Posted on: 21 May 2015

Moving out of state can be very stressful for you and your family. Trying to get your belongings to your new home can be a big expense. If you are not comfortable with renting a moving truck and doing the move yourself, you can opt to have professionals do it for you. If you are capable of packing up your things yourself, you can have an owner operated trucking company do the hauling. Here are a few reasons to choose this option for your move.

Save Money

A big tractor trailer will hold more than your belongings. When you use a big rig for your move, the company will only charge you for the amount of space your belongings take up in the trailer. They will find other clients to fill the rest of it. All the clients together will be paying for the fuel and wages of the driver instead of just you.

Keep Your Belongings Safe

Since you and your friends and family will be doing all the packing, you can be sure that everything stays safe and protected for the trip. If you have items you are not sure how to pack, you can take them to a packaging company, or hire professional packers to do some of the work for you. Either way, you are more in control of how your things are handled and prepared for the trip.

Take Everything

If you have some really large items, such as storage sheds, tractors or extra vehicles, trying to move them can be such a hassle you end up selling them instead. When you have all the space inside a tractor trailer to work with, you can take it all. You can even have them haul a camper for you to keep from having to tow it.

Since you are having personal, household goods hauled, you want to be sure that the driver will take the necessary precautions to keep your belongings safe. The best way to handle this is to find an owner-operated company. You will be able to sit down with the person who will be driving the rig and discuss the type of things that will be in his or her trailer. You can find out how many other clients' belongings will be put in the truck with your stuff too. This will give you an idea of how packed the rig will be and if you should ask for some type of barrier between your things and everyone else's stuff. Working with an owner operator means you will get all the personal attention needed to make sure your possessions get to you safely.
