Choosing a Moving and Dolly Rental Company
Moving dolly rental companies give you the option of renting from a local, national or international company. In case you need to rent something from a national or international moving company, make sure you check their rates first before renting a moving dolly.
When considering local dolly rental, go ahead and search the internet for local dolly companies in your area. These are the most common and easiest to find, though it is recommended that you hire a professional moving company. You can find them through Craigslist or through search engines such as Google.
Most local dolly companies have one wheeled trailers or can provide a large box trailer. Your rental company may offer a wide variety of rental options including air or car, single, double, or even triple dollies. Double and triple dollies are great when there are several items that need to be moved.
Some local companies may also provide limousines or an SUV for you to use when moving certain larger items or vehicles. This is a very popular choice when renting moving dollies because many larger vehicles can only be transported by a moving dolly.
International dolly rental companies are often not located in your state. Make sure you check with the United States Customs and Border Protection (CBP) for any policies on international dolly rentals. They have specific laws and policies that must be followed for international dolly rentals.
A quick check on the CBP website will show you the rules that all moving and rental companies must follow. Do not attempt to rent a moving dolly from any company that has policies that you do not agree with. This is because most moving and dolly rental companies will claim they have no formal policies on renting moving or dolly services.
Do not even consider renting a moving dolly from any company that has no documentation of any kind regarding their safety regulations. Not having a safety policy, is not an acceptable situation.
Look for international companies that provide a Certificate of Insurance before you accept a rental. They should also provide you with a service contract and insurance policy. You can obtain both from a State Insurance Department or you can contact a lawyer and get advice on insurance policies for dolly rentals.
Find out what form of payment is required when renting a moving dolly from any moving company. Most companies will require payment for the dolly in cash or check, however some companies may also accept Visa, MasterCard, American Express or checks made out to the moving company.
If you choose to pay using your credit card for a moving dolly, you should only use your credit card to make the payment. Be wary of companies that require you to have a debit card in order to rent a moving dolly. There is no reason to rent a moving dolly unless you plan to use it to move large items or appliances.
Don’t forget to do some shopping around in order to find the best rates and types of dollies to rent. The internet is a great way to find moving and dolly rental companies. The prices are not inflated and the selection is limited.
Choose a moving and dolly rental service that is legitimate and has a secure system for your belongings to be delivered. A reputable company will take care of your moving needs, including repairs and full insurance.
