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.

Rental trucks are not able to carry four people.

Solutions for moving with four or more people

U-Pack® is a DIY moving service that works like truck rental — but you don’t have to drive. And since you don’t drive, you can travel without worrying about everyone fitting into a rental truck. Here’s how it works:

  • We deliver a trailer or container to your home
  • You load it
  • We’ll pick it up and deliver it to your destination
  • You unload it

U-Pack frees you up to drive to your new home in the comfort of your own vehicle — a much better situation altogether, especially when you’re moving with a family of four. You don’t have to worry about deciding who’ll ride in the rental truck and who’ll drive behind it. Instead, everyone can travel together while U-Pack handles the move.

How much does U-Pack cost?

The service isn’t the only thing that’s similar to truck rental. For many long distance moves, U-Pack prices are comparable, especially if you consider the truck rental extras like fuel, liability coverage and taxes — which U-Pack doesn’t charge extra for.

U-Pack prices differ based on where you’re moving from and to and how much you’re moving. Getting a quote is easy. Just call a U-Pack Moving Specialist at 800-413-4799 to get a quote over the phone, or enter the basic details online to get an instant quote.
