What are the things you should inquire on when you call the truck rental service?
1. Inquire about how big their trucks are. Upon looking at all your packed things and appliances, you will have a gauge on how much it will take in terms of space. You can ask the customer service of the company to assist you on which truck should fit all your things in just one ride. In this way, you will not need to return and make back trips again that will only take too much time and effort.

This may be quite a hassle for some but it is better to be safe than sorry. It is okay if you are extra protective of your things. If you will be checking, make sure that the trucks are well maintained. They do not necessary have to be new, as long as it is adequate still and maintained well.
3. Get to know the driver and the assistants as well.
