What is the cheapest truck rental moving company?
This is a great question, and one asked by a lot of customers. The trouble is, it’s difficult to answer universally because prices can differ so much from location to location and situation to situation. The only way to figure it out for your specific move is by getting quotes and comparing. Now that online quotes are available for most services, this is easier than ever.

If you’re moving long distance and searching for an economical yet easy way to move across the country, Budget Rental Trucks vs. U-Pack is a great comparison. It’s good to note at the get-go that while Budget and U-Pack prices are comparable (for long-distance moves), the services do differ. Budget is a “do-it-yourself” service—you pick it up, load it, drive it, unload it, and return it. U-Pack is a “you pack, we drive” service—U-Pack delivers it, you load it, U-Pack drives it, you unload it, U-Pack picks it up.

Despite the fact that U-Haul is obviously different from U-Pack (you get a professional driver with U-Pack, you do the driving with U-Haul), customers still often compare the two when they’re moving long distance. And it’s all because of one BIG similarity—PRICE. U-Pack rates are comparable to truck rental—even though you don’t have to drive. I’ve compiled some frequently asked questions and helpful links about U-Haul below. Check them out, then compare to U-Pack!

Whether you’re new to moving or you’ve got some moves under your belt, you’ve probably heard that truck rental is the best way to move. If you’re moving locally, yes. If you’re moving long distance, not quite.
In this blog post, you’ll see why more customers prefer U-Pack over Penske® for moving long distance.
Moving Concept. U-Pack’s moving concept is a win-win—you do the loading and unloading, but you don’t have to do the long distance driving (the worst part of moving in my opinion).

Picture this: you are moving from Boston to Dallas. You rent a Budget truck. You have to fill it up before your trip. It is a 35 gallon tank. You spend $130 on your first tank of gas. 280 miles down the road, you have to stop and fill up again. Repeat every 280 miles. That is about 7 stops on your 1768 mile route! That is almost $1000 in gasoline!
Before you embark on your rental truck journey, find out what to expect for the gas mileage of your Budget truck.
