Are there rental trucks that seat 4 people?

Are there rental trucks that seat 4 people?

Can four people ride in a rental truck?

Have you been searching for a rental truck that seats four people? Wonder why they’re impossible to find? Because they actually don’t exist. Well, at least not if you’re looking at the leading truck rental companies like U-Haul®, Penske® or Budget®. The rental trucks from these companies have, at most, three seats — with no back seats. That means no traveling with small children in car seats. And if you have three passengers, you won’t all fit.

The good news is you can move long distance without having to concern yourself with fitting four people inside a rental truck. Here’s how to move without having to drive a rental truck.

Are moving truck rates always cheaper?

One of the biggest misconceptions surrounding long-distance moving is that truck rental is the cheapest option. While that may be true for some moves, so many factors contribute to pricing that rates can widely vary. Before you choose a moving company, take a closer look at the components that determine moving truck pricing, see how U-Pack® is different, and then compare rates.

Determine U-Haul®gas costs

When preparing for your upcoming move, it’s wise to define your expenses so you know what to expect to spend. Along with the costs associated with renting moving equipment and travel expenses, another expenditure that can impact your moving price is fuel — especially for long distance moves. Before you hit the road, prepare for the trip by figuring out your U-Haul fuel costs. With so many miles and lots of stops along the way, being prepared before you pay at the pump is important. And if you find that the cost of fuel is more than you expected, it may be worth exploring alternatives.

How to Save More Than Just a U-Haul Discount

Looking for U-Haul discounts?​​

As a smart shopper, you’re probably in the habit of searching online for coupons before making a big purchase. And since the equipment is one of the biggest moving expenses, looking for a discount makes sense. If you’re able to track down a U-Haul® coupon, promo code or discount, make sure you do some research before booking — it may not make the exact impact you’re wanting. Before searching much further, take a closer look at what it’s like to use a U-Haul coupon (what it covers and doesn’t cover) and other ways to save money on your move.

Which self-moving service offers the best value: U-Haul® or U-Pack®?

You know that keeping costs low likely means choosing a DIY moving service, but with all the options available, how do you decide which company to go with?

U-Pack® was designed as an affordable alternative for long-distance moves. You pack, load and unload, but you don’t have to drive.

What moving truck size do I need?

What moving truck size do I need?

Trying to choose the right size moving truck?​

Look around your home and try to imagine all of your belongings stacked inside a moving truck. How much space will you need? Since moving in a rental truck requires you to determine space needs in advance, this is an important thing to figure out before making a reservation. If you rent a truck that’s too small, you’ll run out of room. But, getting one that’s too big means paying for unused space. To avoid these situations, take a closer look at different trucks to determine how much they can hold.

How to move without driving a rental truck (and still save money)

DIY moving without a rental truck

While most people immediately think “truck rental” when they think of self-service moving, there are other options available. Small, local moves can be done with cargo trailers or multiple trips in a personal vehicle, but those options aren’t ideal for every situation. If you want to save money on a long-distance move, but would like to avoid long hours behind the wheel of an unfamiliar vehicle, a method that doesn’t involve driving may be best. Compare truck rental to a DIY moving service like U-Pack® to see how you can save.
