Do you dread driving a rental truck across the country?

Most people do. If you had it your way, you’d hire someone else to do it all. But that’s pricey, and your number one priority is saving money. So truck rental it is, right? It doesn’t have to be. There’s a way to make the same budget-friendly move without driving a rental.

What is the Capacity of a Moving Truck?

Homes come in all shapes and sizes, which can make moving difficult because moving trucks only come in a few standard sizes.

It can be frustrating to try and figure out your needs before moving.

U-Pack actually has a great solution to this problem that allows you to be flexible with your space. But how much space will you need?

Are you considering a rental truck for your one-way move?

My experience is that most people assume that if they want to move quickly and affordably, one-way truck rental is the way to go. But, fortunately, that’s just not the case anymore. Now there are low-cost options that allow you to do the packing, loading, and unloading, but have a professional drive the moving truck across the country.

Today let’s take a look at what you can expect from one-way truck rental, and then check out an alternative.

Car seats and moving trucks. How does that work?

Moving long distance can be hard to do, especially if you have an infant or small child who rides in a car seat. If you’re considering truck rental because of the low price, you should be aware that some companies are OK with you putting a child in their trucks, while others are not. You might even be a little uneasy about putting your child in a moving truck yourself.

When You Plan Your Budget Plan for Fuel

If you ask friends who have used U-Haul®rental trucks before for local moves, they’ll probably tell you the gas mileage was great. Of course, they were just moving down the street. What about long-distance moves (if that's what you’re about to do)? Do U-Haul trucks still get great gas mileage? That’s a good question, and certainly something to think about as you plan your moving budget. You can determine the gas mileage of a U-Haul rental truck for your move by comparing the following:

Which truck rental company is the cheapest?

If you’re moving locally, you’ll probably find that most of the DIY truck rental companies you’re familiar with (like U-Haul, Budget, and Penske) offer very similar pricing, and the cheapest one often varies by location and truck size. But, if you’re moving long-distance, the cheapest moving truck rental may not be at a truck rental service at all.
