How to estimate gas costs for a rental truck

Did you know that when moving long distance in a rental truck, it may cost more for fuel than it does to rent the truck? It’s true! While truck rental may seem like the most affordable option, adding in the cost to fill it up may make it more expensive than you planned. To help you check this cost in advance, U-Pack has an easy-to-use gas cost estimator. Find out how to use this online calculator, what factors contribute to fuel costs in a rental truck and how to move without paying extra for gas.

Moving Calculators, Resources, and Estimators

No matter what you’re tackling, you need the right tools for the job. If you’re digging a hole, you need a shovel. And if you’re changing a tire, you need a jack. It’s the same with moving; you need the right moving tools. The US Census Bureau reports that the average person moves 11 times in their lifetime – so though you may not need moving tools often, it’s always good to know where they are when you do!  To make it easy, we’ve gathered all the moving resources you’ll need to plan for your move. Check them out below.

Don't Drive a Rental Truck - Let U-Pack do the Driving

August 1st, 2008 - 3:37 PM

Wow, talk about a can of worms! When I started researching fuel calculation so that you, our customer, would know how much better you can budget when using U-Pack, I got more than I bargained for. I was looking for information about the size of rental truck gas tanks and ran across a web site that discussed how driving a rental truck is so much different than your own vehicle. It is definitely something to think about when weighing your options.
