Moving isn't easy. Once you've found a new place to live in Marietta you are faced with the often overwhelming task of how to get your belongings to your new home safely. Generally, you can either rent a truck to haul your possessions yourself, or you can hire a moving company to transport your goods for you. Either of these options presents dangers of Marietta truck crashes both for you and others on Georgia roadways.

Dangers of Rented Moving Trucks

When travelling in or near a rented moving truck you should be aware:
  • That the driver does not know the truck well. The driver is not familiar with the truck's maintenance history or safety issues.
  • That the driver may not know how to drive a truck safely. For many people, the only time they operate a truck is when they are moving. They may not know how to safely load the truck, operate the truck, or stop the truck.

Dangers of Moving Company Trucks

Moving companies may also present risks of Marietta truck accidents. Specifically,
  • The truck driver may be unfamiliar with Marietta roadways.
  • The truck driver may be rushing to get the job done, may be tired, or may be inattentive.
