How to Save More Than Just a U-Haul Discount

August 4th, 2017 - 1:16 PM
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.

Compare U-Haul Rates to U-Pack Rates

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? Truck rental has a reputation for low rates, so companies like U-Haul® are often a consideration when looking for cheap ways to move. But truck rental isn’t the only money-saving option. U-Pack® was designed as an affordable alternative for long-distance moves. You pack, load and unload, but you don’t have to drive. Compare what you get with U-Pack to what you get with a U-Haul, then check prices to determine which is the best value for your move.

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.

Details about Hertz® moving truck rental

If you’re looking for a truck to rent for your move, you may be considering Hertz.

How U-Haul rates affect moving costs

When considering moving long distance in a U-Haul truck, it’s important to understand what service options are built in to the advertised rate. Unless you’re getting everything you need, you may end up spending more than planned. While mileage, days and equipment are accounted for, they’re limited. And things that aren’t included can significantly add to overall costs. Staying within budget is important, so make sure you understand what’s included before reserving a move.

U-Haul speed limit

Are you planning to rent a U-Haul® truck or trailer for your move? If so, you’ve probably wondered how fast you can drive their equipment. While there’s no set speed limit, U-Haul does provide maximum recommended speeds that renters should be aware of before getting behind the wheel. And when traveling cross country in a large, unfamiliar vehicle, it’s important to drive cautiously so that you keep yourself, your belongings, the equipment and other drivers safe.

If you’re moving from a large house, you most likely have a lot of boxes and furniture to pack and load — which may have you wondering if there’s a rental truck big enough to hold everything. The largest available rental truck size is the 26-foot truck, but will all of your belongings fit inside? U-Haul®, Penske® and Ryder® estimate their equipment to hold different household sizes, so it’s important to look into your options before making a decision. The information below can help you decide if a 26-foot truck is a good solution, or if an alternative like U-Pack® is the better way to move.

What is the cheapest moving truck rental?

What is the cheapest moving truck rental?

Finding cheap moving trucks​

For local, in-state moves, U-Haul®, Budget® and Penske® have a variety of cheap rental trucks available. But, because rates change constantly (due to location, truck size and the time of year you’re moving), it’s difficult to determine which company offers the cheapest moving truck prices. And, if you’re moving one-way, truck rental may not be the cheapest option.
