Decorating a house can take a lot of time and also be quite complicated. There are many aspects that need to be considered for you to get the home you've always dreamed of. One of the aspects that many people tend to overlook is the transportation that has to be done to get the furniture from the shop to your new home. There are many transportation options, all with their own advantages and disadvantages. To choose what transportation option fits your purposes the best, there are a few things you should think about.

Ute rental

Renting a Ute for your furniture transportation needs is one of the simplest options. It's a rather small vehicle that won't demand a lot of you to drive it. It also won't take up a lot of space, meaning you can park comfortably close to the store and to your home to unload the furniture. Another advantage of Ute rental is that it can be cheaper than other forms of furniture transportation vehicles, as it's not as large and complicated as other options. You will, however, only be able to freight single items, or many small items with Ute rentals.


Another option is to rent a trailer. They come in many sizes and can therefore allow you to transport many pieces of furniture at once. They are also fairly simple to manoeuvre, meaning you can do the transportation yourself if you have some experience with driving with a trailer. However, you need to be aware of the weight of the unloaded and loaded trailer in comparison to your car. You also need to know about the laws in your state. Heavy trailers in combination with heavy vehicles might demand that you have a certain driver's license.

Moving truck

You could also rent a moving truck to transport your furniture. This option usually includes hiring a moving firm, meaning you won't drive the truck itself. That makes this option more expensive than other options, as you will have to pay for labour as an addition to paying for the vehicle itself. This option is preferable if you've bought a lot of furniture at the same place. Hiring a moving firm to take one trip can turn out to be less expensive than Ute rental or trailer hire, as you most likely have to take more trips than one with those options. More trips mean more money for gas and also more hours on the rental agreement that you have to pay for.
