Weekly Cargo Van Rental

Ed asks:

I'm thinking of getting a weekly cargo van rental. live in the Hartford CT area. I really only need the vehicle for 4 days, but I'm thinking that it may be cheaper to rent for 7 days. Is this true and do you know of a place in Hartford where I could get a moving van rental for a week?

My Response: 

The pricing difference may depend on which few days you need it for.  A moving van

rental on the weekend may be more expensive than just renting for a few days during the week. (company links open in a new window)

I checked a truck rental company Budget Truck.com as an example.

I checked for a price for a cargo van for 4 days on a weekend, the price for 4 days through the week and then checked the rate for a weekly cargo van rental. The length of the rental made no difference... the daily rate was the same for each rental period. You may find a different result with another company.. the only way to know for sure is to check multiple suppliers.

The first thing that I suggest you do is research what weekly cargo van rental suppliers are in your area; then you can start looking for pricing for the type of truck rental you want for the dates you're looking for, checking the difference for each supplier for a moving van rental for a week vs renting for just the dates that you need.
