How Rental Trucks Help Real Estate Agents and Movers Alike
Moving is a hassle. Few like it because of the constant frustrations that can pop up.
On the Move works to make sure a rental truck isn’t another thing causing a headache during the moving process. Its trucks are specially designed for easy transport of cargo, with subtle touches like the wheel well not extending into the back portion of the truck, making for a more pleasant experience.
And the ramp up the truck won’t be stolen – like many were during the recession when they caught the eye of desperate scrap metal resellers – or misplaced thanks to an extended rear door that also allows for more real estate for marketing or advertising messages.
“My grandpa thought of the solution. He thought, ‘Well, let’s cover the ramp up.’ He was able to extend the door over the ramp and (box truck partner) Unicell was able to comply with that and make it work for us,” said On the Move Marketing Director CJ Stratte, whose grandfather founded the company after years of experience with Ford.
While the trucks’ graphics pop thanks to a lack of exterior rivets or other things that could mar the wrap, they’re also designed with efficiency in mind.
“Our trucks are aerodynamic and designed this way, because it makes it more fuel efficient,” Stratte said. “(This design) is actually 20% more fuel efficient for these trucks. It’s a little bit more economical.”
On The Move’s rental solutions also serve realtors, who can offer them to movers to provide these benefits – and advertise their services.
In addition to being friendly on the wallet, the trucks also are designed to be easier to drive, with extra mirrors to aid drivers who may be more used to piloting a sedan or an SUV than a 15-foot machine with all their possessions inside.
That, along with many of the other features setting On the Move apart, provide movers peace of mind in a stressful time.
