If you’re looking to cut costs when moving home, you may be toying with the idea of moving alone instead of engaging in moving truck hire.

While this seems like a good idea in practice, avoiding hiring some kind of truck or van will only lead to further stress. After all, it means that you’ll have to play a real-life game of Jenga when trying to fit all of your belongings into your car or repeat the journey from one property to the next multiple times over! 

As a result, if you’re moving to a new city or down the road, you’ll likely benefit from our moving truck hire.

Reasons you should hire a truck when moving. 

There are many reasons why you should consider moving truck hire when moving house over trying to go solo! 

Peace of mind.

According to a recent study, 84% of people find moving house to be an incredibly stressful experience, and trying to do everything alone will likely increase the levels of stress you are dealing with during this time. After all, you’ll have to think carefully about the logistics of moving all of your items in your car, including heavy, bulky furniture and fragile items. 

Reduced chances of damaged property.

When you are using a moving truck for your move, as opposed to your own car or vehicle, you are drastically reducing the chances of something getting damaged during transit. After all, this ensures that you have plenty of space to safely and securely store your belongings so that you can take everything to your new property in one piece. We can also provide you with access to essential moving supplies to help make loading and unloading your van easier. 

While using a van to move home may seem more expensive, having to repair and replace your furniture or belongings because you’ve not made the effort to transport them safely could end up costing you a lot more! 

Less back and forth.

If you were deciding to move using your own car or were considering enlisting friends and family to help take your belongings from A to B, you’re going to be dealing with a lot of back-and-forth travel. 

After all, you cannot pack away everything you own into the boot of a car, especially when you’re also moving furniture. This means you’ll also spend a lot of time behind the wheel and likely a lot of money on fuel too, depending on how far you are travelling. 

However, you can hire a van that is big enough to transport all of your belongings in a single trip. This way, you can save yourself a lot of time come moving day by carrying out all of the work at once. This way, you can focus on enjoying your new home (and unpacking).


Hiring a van when moving, as opposed to a full removal team, also gives you greater flexibility. For example, you are then free to move on your own schedule, as opposed to having to deal with their availability. Again, this can be a great way to reduce your stress during this time, especially if you are unsure as to which date you’d like to move or when you can pick up your keys for your new home.

This added flexibility will also make loading and unloading your van a lot easier, as you’re not necessarily dealing with a time crunch and can work at your own speed when unpacking and settling into your new home.
