A box truck rental can be used for much more than carting your furniture and boxes from your old home to your new one. With the spacious cargo area, there are lots of interesting ways you can put a box truck to work for you. Consider one of these unique options for moving truck rentals to see which one might work for you.

Create A Furniture Showroom At Your Yard Sale

Keeping furniture in your yard at a yard sale means that the items might be exposed to rain if the weather turns bad. Consider renting a box truck and displaying your furniture items in the back of the truck. Arrange them to create a showroom-like look, and tag each item as sold upon purchase. After the sale is over, wrap the items in moving blankets and deliver the items to each customer. You can tack on a delivery fee for this to cover the cost of the truck rental, or you can offer it as a free service for anyone wishing to make a purchase at your sale.

Create A Redecorating Mobile Command Center

Instead of having new furniture delivered to your home for a room redecorating project, rent a box truck and pick the items up yourself. This is especially handy if your furniture is coming from different stores, as you can avoid paying several separate delivery fees for the items. Take the truck with you when you go shopping for decor pieces, such as throw pillows and lamps. This way, you can pick up all the items you need in one day without cluttering your home in the days ahead of the redecorating project. When you are ready to begin the project, you can simply remove your old furniture, stage it on your lawn, and transition the new items from the back of the box truck into your home. After the transition is complete, load up your old items in the truck for delivery to a local charity.

Create A Mobile Recycling Program

Recycling old electronics, paper and metal can be a great way to raise money for your child's school trips or to put extra money in your pocket. Network with family and friends to have them save recyclable materials for your project. Arrange to rent a box truck on a specific date and pick up the items from your recycling friends. Once everything is collected, drop the items off at your local recycling center where they can be weighed to determine your payment.

Box truck rentals can provide lots of great uses other than moving. Consider these ideas or use them as inspiration to create your own box truck rental ideas. Reach out to a service like Del's Truck Rentals to learn more.
