Rental Truck – Palmerston North, Auckland, Christchurch and Dunedin

Moving Tips

An increasing number of budget conscious people are opting to move themselves rather than hire an expensive removals company, and with more eco-consious Kiwis downsizing their cars, hiring a rental truck or van is an increasingly popular and economical way to move larger items when needed.

If you’re planning on moving house, whether it’s from a small apartment or a large family home, our moving tips, advice and checklists should help you plan your move and make sure things run smoothly.

Planning your move

Book your rental truck well in advance

To ensure the best availability for your van or truck rental, make your booking with USAVE Van & Truck Rentals as far in advance of your move date as possible. We have convenient rental truck locations in Auckland, Palmerston North, Christchurch and Dunedin to make moving easier.

Select the right rental truck for your needs

Take a look at our range of different size truck hire vehicles to select the most suitable van or truck rental for your needs. Pick a vehicle that is large enough to complete the entire job in one or two trips, but don’t try to squeeze too much in as your possessions may get damaged.

Also, don’t forget, driving a van or truck is a lot different to driving a car. Read our New Zealand rental trucks driving safety tips for more information.

Vehicle insurance

Our vans and trucks are covered by full comprehensive insurance with an excess payable. The excess may be reduced with an additional payment – please refer to our terms and conditions for further details.

Packing materials

Buy good quality boxes and packaging supplies to protect your belongings. USAVE has hand trucks, furniture blankets and trailers available to help you with your move. Read our moving truck hire packing tips for more details.

Organising help

Ask your friends and family to help if it’s a large move, and give them plenty of notice. Have everything packed and ready to load before helpers arrive, and keep everyone happy with snacks and refreshments. Read our moving day advice for more information on planning your big day.
