But, before you start looking at rental trucks, there are some things you may want to consider. And since almost everyone knows someone who’s rented a U-Haul truck, let's start with some important things you should know before renting a U-Haul.

Comparing U-Haul’s Rental Requirements to U-Pack

Because many of our customers are trying to decide between renting a truck to drive themselves and doing a “you pack, we drive” move, it’s not uncommon to get the question, “what do I need to use U-Pack,” and “how does that compare to U-Haul’s requirements.” So today, let’s first look at what you need to rent a U-Haul, then we’ll look at how that compares to moving long distance with U-Pack.

I’m thinking about renting a moving truck, but I’m not sure how much they cost.

You have lots of options for your upcoming long-distance move, including renting a moving truck. For local moves, moving trucks are usually easy on the wallet. But you can’t always say the same for long-distance moves. When you start adding on additional costs like fuel, damage coverage and sales tax, the price starts going up; sometimes even doubling your quoted price.

Let’s look at an example of how much moving trucks cost

Let’s say you’re moving 1,425 miles from Phoenix, AZ to Memphis, TN in a 20 ft. moving truck during peak moving season.

Compare U-Haul It vs. We Drive It Moving Services

When you think of cheap moving, do you think of a rental truck? No matter what company you picture, you probably think a do-it-yourself move is the cheapest way to move. One option that might not come to mind is U-Pack, a “you pack it, we drive it” moving option that is comparable in price to truck rental.

Let’s compare “U-Haul® It” services to a “We Drive It” service like U-Pack. The main difference is who does the driving.  If you don’t want to drive, then a “we drive it” service might be ideal for you. What else is different between these two types of moving services?

Are you looking for a trailer to pull behind your vehicle?

If you’re considering a trailer for moving household goods long distance, U-Pack® one-way trailer rental is a great option.  And though it may work a little differently than what you initially had in mind, I think you’ll find that it’s a much safer and more convenient option.

Instead of pulling a rented trailer behind your personal vehicle, U-Pack delivers it to your location, you load it, and we pick it up and drive it to your new location.

And you only pay for the space you use.

The trailer that comes to your home is 28 feet in length. It’ll look something like this:
