It does not matter whether you are in America, England, China or South Africa. Truck transport is a common industry that every country makes use of. There is no better vehicle to have when you need to move medium to large payloads around your town, city or country.

A handy service to have access to in South Africa is truck hire. With a decent truck hire service, you are able to easily hire a truck on a short to medium-term basis.

In many cases, you may have a large need for a truck from time to time, but there is absolutely no need to own one. Examples of this would be once-off large order deliveries, collecting new equipment or moving homes or offices.

To help you out, we’ve put together 5 tips to consider when renting a truck.

  1. Don’t just get one truck rental quote. Shop around for the best price and service offering.
  2. Study your quotations. Many truck rental companies today tend to construct complicated quotations, so be aware of what you are in for.
  3. Be on top of your needs and requirements. If you’re looking to rent a truck, then be sure to know how long you will need it for and how many Km’s you will need to travel, also, find out if you are liable for any insurance excesses. Knowing all of these aspects will substantially affect the price and ensure you are not being over-quoted.
  4. Be on the ball with the capacity and payload of your delivery. There is a wide array of trucks, and many companies will quote you for a larger truck than is needed. This hikes up their profits!
  5. Understand the inclusions and exclusions of your contract, as many truck rental companies today tend to opportunely place hidden costs in their quotations.

There you have it! If you are looking to rent a truck from a reliable rental company such as Dial-a-Truck then call us on 0861 998 887 or email us at info@dialatruck.co.za.
