1 Very Full Truck or 2 Half-Full Trucks?
Recently, we here at College Muscle Movers have come across a variety of estimation situations where a customer has so many items that it might require a second truck. If you have spoken with us before, you know we favor a “better safe than sorry” approach, and subsequently always suggest a second truck in these situations.
And so, we often get asked, “If you think that everything might fit into the one truck, why not just try for that?” To which we have a few answers.
First and foremost, efficiency. With two trucks, the movers are able to waste less time trying to make absolutely everything fit and put more focus on the overall move. We’d rather get your move done as quickly as possible than waste time puzzle-piecing your items into the truck.
Secondly, there is a lowered risk of higher costs. With two trucks, the chance of needing to make a second trip is virtually eliminated. With one truck if not everything fit and a second trip is required, the time increases greatly and the cost along with it. This is especially likely to happen if there are additional items that were not on the original inventory given. With two trucks, there is plenty of extra space.
Finally, and possibly most important there is an increased amount of item safety. With more space we can pack your items into our truck with their safety in mind, rather than use of space. In other words, we always pack your items as safely as possible, but with limited space we may need to prioritize getting it all in one load over the safety of certain items.
So what does this mean for price?
We hope that this helps in your decision making process when not only considering the logistics of your move, but also the professional moving company you decide to hire.
