It depends on the delivery system you require for your goods and/or services. There are many of you out there who do not have the budget for carrying a fleet of trucks, let alone having one driver driving one truck owned by the company. The best alternative for many companies in a similar predicament is to outsource. And in so doing, you are required to take full advantage of the full truckload shipping service offering.
If the trucking company is accredited, it should be able to offer up sound advice on how you can make savings across the board. Of course, it goes without saying that its inventory and fleet must be more than appropriate to accommodate you and your goods and services in this time of need. Your budget may only restrict you to the hiring of a single truck. While it may have to make more than one short to long-distance trip owing to the load at your disposal, the shape but not necessarily the size of the truck counts in your favor.
It is not so much a case of cramming as much goods as possible onto a single truck. It’s just that the space is adequate. One factor that makes space extensive, even though the truck may only be ‘small’ is down to the expertise. The movers and packers are expert hands. While moving customers’ goods they are generally quite careful, making sure that nothing gets broken. And when the goods are loaded onto the truck, somehow or another space seems to be found for it.
The business owner, he who runs the trucking company, takes out specialist insurance so that in the extreme event that there is loss and/or damage not of his making, your business is covered too.
