Truck Hire Cape Town Tips

Iron Horse Relocations has recently added the option for our customers to request a 6-ton enclosed panel van for daily hire with driver. Whether you need a truck for moving house, delivering goods, or transporting equipment, we have the perfect solution for you when looking for truck hire Cape Town.

If you are planning to move or transport a lot of items, you might need to pack your truck efficiently. Here are some tips to help you do that:

Plan ahead. Make a list of the items you need to pack and sort them by size, weight and fragility. This will help you decide how to arrange them in the truck and what kind of packing materials you need.

Load the heaviest items first. Place them in the front of the truck, near the cab, and distribute them evenly across the floor. This will help balance the weight and prevent the truck from tipping over or swaying.

Use furniture pads, blankets, bubble wrap and other cushioning materials to protect your items from scratches, dents and breaks. Wrap them around your furniture, appliances, electronics and other delicate items and secure them with tape or straps.

Fill in the gaps. Use boxes, bags, pillows, towels and other soft items to fill in the empty spaces between your items. This will prevent them from shifting or sliding during transit and reduce the risk of damage.

Stack your items carefully. Place the heaviest boxes on the bottom and the lightest ones on top. Avoid stacking items that are fragile, irregularly shaped or have loose parts. Make sure nothing is sticking out or blocking the rear door or windows.

Secure your items. Use ropes, bungee cords, straps or nets to tie down your items and keep them in place. Check that everything is stable and secure before you close the door and drive away.

We used Iron Horse Relocations to move furniture from Atlantic Beach up the West Coast. The team were punctual, professional and put special effort in to protect and secure our furniture in transit. We would highly recommend Iron Horse Relocations.

What an amazing team. Phillip was prompt with the quote, and accommodated my change of date numerous times with no issues. The team arrived on time, were quick and professional and had our entire 3 bedroom house packed up in less than 2 hours. The move went seamlessly, and we couldn't be happier. Worth every penny! Would definitely recommend.

Best service. They check all the boxes, from booking, communication, arrived on time on the day of moving, very professional and good customer service. I had a table that was not in a good condition, which I thought wouldn't make it :), I was wrong they handle your things with such an amazing care. They know all the tricks of the stairs and corners. You worked for this 5 stars, will definitely recommend you. Thank you so much for a stress free move.

After a terrible move 10 years ago were I had many damages I was concerned around moving again but Iron Horse Relocations did a brilliant job. Arrived on time, great attitude, polite, strong (including moving a grand piano) moved everything to where I needed it and the service was truly outstanding. Will be using them again when I move into my permanent house.
