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.

The rental truck alternative

The budget-friendly, no rental truck driving way I’m talking about is called U-Pack®. Just like truck rental, you’re responsible for packing, loading, unloading, and unpacking all your stuff. But unlike truck rental, U-Pack takes care of all the transportation. It’s a happy medium that’s changing the way people move.

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. When you’re preparing to move, you’re going to have to figure out how much a moving truck can hold so you know what size truck to use. 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.

Does gas mileage does have an impact on your Budget rental truck price?

If you’re trying to decide whether it’s more economical to drive a Budget rental truck or go another route for your move, then you'll want to determine your fuel costs before reserving your truck. Fuel costs can really add up, and in some cases, you may pay as much for gas as you did to rent the truck! This post focuses on the gas mileage you can expect from a Budget truck along with some affordable moving alternatives.

When You Plan Your Budget Plan for Fuel

If you ask friends who’ve used a U-Haul® for a local move, they may tell you that they didn’t have to spend too terribly much on fuel. But, of course, moving down the street is a whole different ball game than moving across the country. If you’re planning a long-distance move, and you're considering a U-Haul rental truck, you’ll definitely want to plan for fuel. 

The truck size

U-Haul offers 6 different rental truck sizes.

Each U-Haul truck has a different tank capacity. Because each tank size varies, the MPG and Miles Per Fuel Tank also vary.

Comparing Truck Rental Rates to U-Pack

Rates That Compare to Truck Rental, But You Don't Have to Drive!

If you’re moving long distance, there’s a good chance you can do a “you pack, we drive” move—where you pack, load, and unload your belongings, and a professional driver moves it across the country—at rates that are very comparable to renting a truck and driving it yourself.

Even if intuition tells you that truck rental rates are cheaper than U-Pack (because doing everything on your own just feels like it would be the most affordable way to move), others who have used U-Pack would tell you that it’s definitely worth comparing.

A good place to start is with an online quote from U-Pack. It’s as simple as entering where you’re moving from and to, how much you’re moving, and when you’re moving. You’ll see the price online instantly.

How do I find a U-Haul location?

To locate your nearest U-Haul store, you’ll need to visit U-Haul’s website. But, before you go, take a second to learn about getting a cheap move without having to drive. 

You might automatically think that renting a truck is the easiest and cheapest option for your move—which may be true for local moves. However, if you are moving long distance, you might not realize that you can move cheap without having to visit a local office, pick up a truck, or drive. U-Pack is a great alternative to truck rental because you can get discount moving without having to drive at all.

Before you visit a neighborhood U-Haul location, learn how U-Pack compares. You can get a move at a comparable price without the hassle.

Do you want to rent a truck?

If you're trying to save money on a cross-country move, intuition may tell you that you have to rent a truck. And that thought may cause concerns that make you dread moving. Am I choosing the right size rental truck? Can I drive that far in a huge vehicle that I’m not familiar with? How am I going to drive it through large cities? How difficult will it be to tow my vehicle? Will my stuff be safe parked in a hotel parking lot overnight? Once I pay for gas, taxes and insurance, how much will it really cost to rent a truck? Is there a better way to move?  

Your concerns are legitimate.
