U-Haul's Largest Rental Truck

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.

Compare U-Haul Rates to U-Pack Rates

September 29th, 2014 - 4:16 PM

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.

September 17th, 2014 - 3:30 PM

How old do you have to be to rent a truck?

In most states, licensed drivers can drive a car at 16. But, when it comes to renting a truck, the age companies normally require is 18.

Renting a Moving Truck at 18

Technically, 18 year olds are able to rent a truck from U-Haul®, Budget®, and Penske®. However, there are some things to consider.

How fast can I drive a U-Haul truck?

September 10th, 2014 - 8:56 AM

Moving in a U-Haul® – how fast can you go?

According to U-Haul…

There isn’t a specific answer to this question on the U-Haul FAQ page, so we placed several calls to the U-Haul Customer Service line. The answers varied. Some representatives told us the recommend speed is 55 MPH if you’re towing a trailer or car, and 65 MPH if you’re not. Others told us to abide by the speed limit signs in each state. In other words, there doesn’t seem to be a set-in-stone recommendation for how fast you can drive a U-Haul truck.

Are there rental trucks that seat 4 people?

September 5th, 2014 - 1:20 PM

Rental truck for four, please

Have you been searching for a rental truck that seats four people? They’re not easy to find. In fact, they’re impossible to find. Why? Because they don’t exist. At least, you won’t find them if you’re looking at leading truck rental companies like U-Haul®, Penske®, or Budget®. Three seats is the most each of those companies offer – with no back seats. That means no traveling with small children in car seats.

Can I use U-Haul Coupons with U-Pack?

June 23rd, 2014 - 2:50 PM

Looking for U-Haul coupons? Find out to save money on your move!

If you’re trying to track down a U-Haul coupon, you’re probably looking to save on your move. I don’t blame you – moving can be expensive! While U-Haul coupons can take a small portion off your rental cost, it’s important to remember the total cost of using a U-Haul. There are extra costs you may not consider when deciding on a moving company. These extra costs like fuel, meals, hotel stays, and road tolls are all expenses that can take a chunk out of your moving budget, especially the cost of fuel. What if there was a way to move on budget without using a U-Haul coupon?

24 Ft Truck - Just How Much Does it Hold?

April 24th, 2014 - 4:00 PM

Is a 24 foot rental truck enough?

If you're moving a three-bedroom home, maybe. But, it depends on how fully furnished your home is. Figuring out whether your belongings will fit inside a rental truck can be tricky, especially if you've never moved before. It's plenty of room for some three-bedroom homes. But, for others it's not nearly enough. U-Pack Moving solves that problem.  You pay only for the space you use, and if you need more, it's always available.

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?
