Renting a one-way moving truck will save you a lot of money when you consider the massive cost of hiring moving professionals. Based on the location of your new home, you could save a substantial amount of money by taking this option.

Fortunately, there are several one-way moving trucks to choose from whenever you are relocating to your new home. Regardless of the location of your new home, there are one-way moving companies that will meet your needs. Below are some about one-way truck rentals that you need to know: 

U-Haul 

The U-Haul rental truck provides a wide range of options to make the truck efficient, easy to load, and drive. The vehicles from U-Haul are lined with ‘rub-nails' for extra protection of your furniture when in transit. The rental rate of U-Haul depends majorly on truck size, the point of origin, place of destination, and the moving date. You are expected to complete your move within a specified number of days. If you have not completed your packing within the set number of days, you can purchase extra days at $40 per day. 

The U-Haul's 10 ft moving trucks are the ideal choice for smaller moves. Students, young couples, and singles moving from one tiny apartment to another can make use of this one-way truck. Some features of U-Hauls rental trucks are:

- Air conditioning

Anne Graffy

When explaining to clients why I am the best fit for their real estate needs, I like to tell them that I am not only their real estate agent, but their business representative as well. With more than three decades of experience working in the corporate world and as an entrepreneur, I have extensive knowledge of how business works and what needs to be done to succeed. Not only has this experience informed the way that I research and keep track of information, it has also taught me everything that there is to know about negotiating and closing sales. For you, as the client, this experience means that I know how to get you the best deal possible on that property you are buying or selling in the Tampa Bay area.

As a successful real estate agent, I pride myself on being an active member of the community. I am dedicated to providing every client with unparalleled customer service and utmost professionalism. I have been a licensed real estate agent serving Pinellas, Hillsborough, and Pasco county since 2002. During this time, I have had the pleasure of working alongside some of the most influential developers and investors in the industry. This working experience has also given me an advanced level of market knowledge when it comes to luxury homes in the Tampa Bay area. I am able to understand and predict changes in the market, as well as help you track down that luxury home that you have always wanted and help you purchase it for a fair price.

Over the course of my time working in real estate, I have been awarded the following accolades:

2003 ReMax Sunset Rookie of the Year

2003 Million Dollar Producer

2003, 2006 ReMax Executive Club Award

2004 and 2005 ReMax 100% Club Award

I have also been a licensed interior designer from 1984 to 1998. This experience has proven itself to be invaluable when it comes to helping clients get an idea of how they want to decorate or renovate the inside of a home. And coincidentally enough, many of the homes that I sold to clients over the years were some of the same houses that decorated and designed nearly two decades ago.

In addition to working real estate and in the corporate sector, I (have been) a member of the following organizations and volunteer groups in the community:

Membership Director of the Gulf Harbors Civic Association

Design Team of Main Street New Port Richey

Eco Broker

On the Green Business Committee of the Florida Green Building Coalition

Member of the Habitat for Humanity Women Build Team

Fundraised for New Directions, an organization dedicated to cancer research

Volunteer at the American Diabetes Association

Big Brother/ Big Sister program

I believe in working closely alongside the community to build better neighborhoods for all, and this is evident in my real estate practice.
