How does one even remember to get one day van insurance?
You’re moving, but not across the country, only across town, maybe just a few blocks. One of the growing certainties in this day and age is that most of us have more stuff than we can move in the back of a pickup. You could call up every friend you have and load all your stuff into their cars, strapping your mattress on one and your couch on another. The good news is that you traditionally only have to pay in beer and pizza. The bad news is that you might not have any friends after this. The worst news is what happens when your mattress falls off the car and gets dragged through the street.
A much more sensible way to get the job done is with a one day van rental. The cost is somewhat higher than beer and pizza, but it saves wear and tear on possessions and friendships. If you’re going to do a single day van rental, you want to get the best price, but you also want to make sure you have proper coverage.
There’s more than one way to save money
You want to get the best value for your money with your one day van. That’s a give and very wise. However, cheaping out on insurance is far more likely to cost you money than to save it. Rental companies will often offer insurance that seems to be exorbitantly priced and that’s because it is. That doesn’t mean you only have two choices: Pay too much or take your chances.
Paying a reasonable price for proper coverage will save you far more than it costs. Whether you’re using the van for moving or some other similar activity, there is substantial risk of damage to the vehicle or its contents. Sometimes homeowner’s insurance covers items during transport, but sometimes it doesn’t, or if you don’t have homeowner’s or what you’re transporting can’t be covered, you will be liable for any damage. The right policy will save you from that.
Insurance is meant for eventualities
One day van insurance isn’t like buying the long-term policy for your car or house. It’s a relatively inexpensive policy for what you’re getting in return designed to cover very specific situations that might happen during the one day you have the vehicle. Being properly insured means you can your property moved with the assurance that if the unforeseen happens, you will have been prepared anyway.
Most of the time you know you’re going to need a one day van and insurance sometime in advance. That gives you enough time to do it right.
