Moving Truck Driving Safety

For anyone thinking about moving truck rentals, there are some important driving safety tips to consider:

  • Check to make sure your driver's license is valid.
  • Before driving, inspect the truck. See if it's in good working order.
  • Make sure the truck is packed evenly and the door is secure before leaving.
  • Wear your seatbelt. Avoid using the phone while driving.
  • Leave a gap between the truck and other vehicles to allow time to stop quickly if there is an emergency.
  • Do not tailgate other vehicles.
  • Avoid driving on shoulders and ditches to keep the truck from overturning.
  • Trucks have blind spots - be sure to use the horn when you back up.
  • Take regular driving breaks to avoid accidents from being sleepy.
