How to Save More Than Just a U-Haul Discount

Breaking down coupons for U-Haul®

It’s always smart to search for coupon codes and discounts when buying anything online. But while coupons are great for saving money on a particular item, they don’t always guarantee you the cheapest price on the product or service you’re actually looking for. This is especially true when it comes to moving: not all savings are created equal. If you’re looking to get the lowest rate on a U-Haul truck, take a look at some current U-Haul discounts and then see how those potential savings compare to an alternative like U-Pack®.

How to get a U-Haul discount

At the time of posting, we couldn’t locate any publicly listed U-Haul coupons or discount codes for the trucks. However, they do occasionally post some savings programs on their website. These are the current deals (note that these programs could change at any time):

  • Free towing inspection 
  • Unlimited lifetime hitch warranty if your hitch is installed at a U-Haul location
  • Free shipping on moving supply orders over $99
  • Discounted rates on cargo vans and pickup trucks
  • Free month storage at a new facility in Nashville, TN
  • Discounted trailer rentals for moves going into California

Most of these are small savings or only available in specific locations. If you do happen to find a different U-Haul truck coupon that takes a portion off the truck rental rate, it’s important to note that it won’t affect fuel, damage coverage, towing or travel costs, which can add up on a long-distance move.

Comparing moving discounts

While rental trucks are a viable option for local moves, they’re not always the most economical choice for long-distance moves. U-Pack is an affordable self-moving service that delivers your belongings door-to-door, and rates are often comparable to U-Haul.

While U-Haul rentals come with extra costs like fuel and damage coverage, U-Pack rates include everything: the moving equipment, transportation, fuel and liability coverage. And U-Pack offers several savings programs to help make the price even cheaper:

  • $25 off with promo code BLOG25
  • $25 off when reserving your move online
  • Coupons for military members (active duty and retired) and students
  • Discounted moving “lanes” depending on market demand
  • FREE shipping on all moving supplies from the U-Pack Box Store

You can stack savings, so everyone can save at least $50 on a move by combining the BLOG25 code and reserving online. And when you consider that there aren’t additional charges to budget for, it’s often the better value. Sometimes, finding the best moving deals means getting a great service at an affordable price to begin with, then using any savings codes to cut costs further.
