Looking for cheap moving truck rental?

It doesn’t take long to figure out that the cheapest way to move one way usually involves doing some or all of the work yourself. Rental truck companies cater to tight budgets, but despite that, it’s still sometimes difficult to get the cheap rates you’re looking for – especially when you add in extra costs like fuel, sales tax and insurance coverage. To help you find the cheapest one-way moving solution, we’ll spend some time comparing the rates and services of the big three (U-Haul®, Penske® and Budget®) and take a look at U-Pack Moving – a low-cost alternative to truck rental.

What does it cost to rent a trailer?

That depends on the type of trailer you want to rent. For a cross-country move, an enclosed trailer is best because it protects your items from the elements and can be secured with a lock. If you want to tow the enclosed trailer behind your vehicle or a rental truck, U-Haul® is the only national company that offers that type of trailer (they call it a cargo trailer). If you don’t want to tow anything behind you, the U-Pack® Trailer is ideal. We’ll take a look at the cost to rent both of these trailers and other costs you can expect with cross country trailer rental.

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.

U-Haul's Largest Rental Truck

(Post updated 10/7/14)

The largest truck you can rent from U-Haul® is the 26-foot truck. If you’re moving a large home and considering one for your cross-country move, there are a few things to think about: Is it large enough to hold your belongings? Is it too big for what you’re moving? Is there a better way to move? Let’s take a look.

Exactly HOW big is the largest U-Haul?

The biggest U-Haul truck has internal dimensions of 26’5” x 7’8” x 8’3” (lwh), and can hold up to 1,611 cubic feet. According to U-Haul, it will hold a four-bedroom home. But, as you probably know, not all four-bedroom homes are created equal. So will yours fit?

I’m Moving. How Much Will It Cost to Tow My Car?

The Price of Towing a Car

Moving costs can really add up when you consider all that’s involved – the truck rental, supplies, and fuel.  And if you need to tow a car, it can get even more expensive. The price to tow a vehicle varies based on the company you choose, the type of equipment you use, and how far you’re moving. Here’s an example: For a move from Tampa, FL to Sacramento, CA, a U-Haul® tow dolly would cost about $159 and a car trailer about $319. With Budget® the tow dolly would cost about $139 and the car trailer about $318.   

If you’re trying to decide whether towing your car is a good option for your move, there’s a little more to consider than just price. Towing a vehicle can slow you down and add extra stress to your move.

Are U-Haul® prices similar to U-Pack®?

(Post updated 9/29/14)

While U-Haul and U-Pack differ in service, they can actually be very similar in price when you’re moving long distance. Surprised? Some people are. With U-Haul, you do the driving; with U-Pack, you don’t. Since U-Pack drives, shouldn’t it cost more than U-Haul? Well, you might think it would, but it often doesn’t. Why? Because U-Pack offers a unique way to keep your long-distance moving rates low: price flexibility.
