When it comes to a time when people have to relocate for any reason, although they may often pay attention to the details of how they will move their belongings from their house, they perhaps some times do not give enough consideration as to what they will do with their car. Too often people think, no problem we will drive it there, even if it is a considerable distance, perhaps even if it is between states. Although of course, it is always possible, is it the right thing to do though?
When you have looked at your moving interstate options, you would have probably taken great care in insuring that the company you use will be one that is reliable. You will probably ensure that the removal company has adequate insurance cover for your belongings, even if it was as an optional extra. If the company did not provide any, you may have even taken out independent insurance to insure you were fully covered but, when it came to the car; you just thought, let’s drive it.
Once you have ensured that all your belongings have successfully been loaded into the removal truck, you will probably intend to wish your old home a fond farewell and then get into your car to drive the hundreds of miles to your new one. You will probably be confident that you will be able to overtake the removal truck and be at the new location in time to meet its arrival. That always sounds like a good plan but, what if your car gives trouble on the way? If your car does develop any sort of problem during the long drive, even I it is fairly minor, it may cause you a delay causing you to miss the delivery time of the removals truck and what happens then? There will certainly be extra charges to pay and those charges could be quite extreme if your belongings had to be placed in a storage facility. If that is the case, which is very likely, you will find yourself not only having to pay for the storage but also another delivery charge to get your belongings back to your new house. You will then think; was it all worth it just to drive your car between homes;probably not.
If you had thought things through though, you may have considered the facts that by doing the driving yourself, you will arrive at your new home tired and exhausted, hardly in the best of states to organize your furnishings. You will have added many miles of wear and tear on your car which, even if it didn’t result in problems during the long journey, may at a later date, perhaps on your way to the first day of work at your new job.
An alternative option that should possibly be considered is, having your car moved by interstate car transporters whilst you take a different means of transport, one that will ensure you are your new house in time to meet the delivery truck.
