The In’s And Out’s Of Removal Truck Rentals

Jan 20, 2022

If you’re hoping to move house in Sydney, across New South Wales, or even interstate, you might need to rent a removal truck. However, it might seem like a daunting prospect: how long should you rent this removal truck for? Do you need a special license? How will you get everything stored correctly? Renting any type of vehicle comes with special terms and conditions as well as other need to know information, and you must be aware of these before you sign a lease contract. At Southern Cross Truck Rentals, we want you to have an easy moving experience, which is why we design our rental agreements with you in mind. Read this blog to find out everything you need to know about removal truck rental.

Southern Cross Truck Rentals (SCTR) is a rental company with a difference. We aim to provide reliable, clean, and fully-serviced trucks to people and businesses, seven days a week, for short and long-term hire.

What Type of Truck Would I Need for Removing Items?

At Southern Cross Truck Rentals, we have a wide range of vehicles available for hire. This is because we understand that you might be a single person living alone, or be moving an entire family. Different people need different sized hires, so our removal vans come in all shapes and sizes. Our most popular options are:

  • Moving and delivery vans
  • Pantech trucks
  • Tautliner Trucks

Moving and delivery vans are a great option for those with fewer items that need to be moved. This could be great for a single person looking to move flats, or a couple of friends moving either in the city or interstate.

Pantech trucks are a larger option for those that have more items they need to move. With different sized options available, you can make sure that your personal and professional items can move from one unit to another safely and securely.

Our Tautliner trucks are the largest option we have available at SCTR. These are ideal for those moving offices or business spaces or large families requiring ample space to move all their belongings.

Can I Hire Moving Items?

When leasing a vehicle with SCTR, you can also hire moving items such as boxes, ropes, blankets, and trolleys. You’ll likely need to secure everything in the truck and make sure your furniture doesn’t break on the journey. At Southern Cross Truck Rentals, we have a range of equipment to make your move easier. We have these items for hire:

  • Ropes for securing items
  • Blankets for protecting your fragile goods
  • Trolleys to make the heavy lifting easier

You can spend less on moving when leasing these items with SCTR because you’re only paying for how long you need them. It makes a lot more sense than buying these items to help with the move, only to never use them again once you have got to your new home!

Can I Hire Moving Items

I Don’t Know What Size Truck I Need

There are different sized trucks for different sized moves! With our handy volume calculator, you can work out what sized vehicle would be best for your move. Don’t hire out a bigger truck than is necessary: simply add up all your items and put them into our system, and we’ll let you know what size you should hire.

Do I Have To Drive?

No! At SCTR, we know that driving a larger vehicle can seem daunting. And in some instances, you might not have the right license to drive one of our trucks! This is totally fine because you can also hire a driver to help you out on moving day. They’ll get you and your items safely from one location to another. All of our drivers are licensed and insured, and you’ll be in the safest hands possible.

Can I Drive Interstate?

Yes! Our trucks are available for interstate hire. We can arrange a lease that suits your needs. Plus, we have 24/7 emergency roadside assistance for all of our rental agreements, so that you’re always protected should something happen.

Moving house can be stressful, but hiring a removal truck doesn’t have to be! With Southern Cross Truck Rental, we want your moving experience to be as pain-free as possible. Give one of our friendly team a call today to see how we can help with your removal truck needs in Sydney and beyond!
