Renting a truck is generally something that you will need to do if you are moving.
Sometimes your friend's pick-up truck or your own minivan just won’t cut it! Is it possible to get a cheap van rental or cheap truck rental?
Cargo van rental or moving truck rental can be made easier if you do some research on your needs:
What size truck do I need?
The size truck you need will depend on the amount of cargo that you need to carry; you must take in to consideration both weight and volume.
The most common types of moving vans are:
Budget truck rental offers local and one-way rentals, with nearly 2800 U.S. locations and 30,000 trucks nationwide.
They also offer Moving Equipment such as furniture pads, car carriers, boxes, pre-packaged box kits and moving supplies.
As with any rental, make sure to carefully research all policy requirements of renting a truck, such as age requirements, credit card requirements, additional driver policies and mileage restrictions (most cargo van rentals have a pay per mile plan as opposed to unlimited mileage, which is common with a car rental).
Check carefully about insurance coverage, either those that are offered by the truck rental company or coverage that may apply through your own insurance policy.|
Booking in advance is key to availability when it comes to renting a truck. Keep in mind that the majority of truck rentals (and moves) occur at the end or beginning of the month and weekends are always booked first!
