💲 HOW MUCH DOES A UHAUL TRUCK COST?
The price varies depending on the size of the truck that you will be needing. Also, if it will be used in-town or out-of-town.
🚚 DOES THE SIZE OF THE TRUCK MATTER?
Yes, for example, if you’re moving from a two-bedroom apartment a 15-foot truck is a great start. However, if you’re going to be moving appliances too, a 20-foot truck is a great choice. Because if you get a 15-foot truck, that’s supposed to hold a two-bedroom home, but if you have more stuff than most people, or if you think you’re going to make multiple trips, you’re going to pay more money because of the mileage.
💰 DO I NEED TO PAY WHEN MAKING A RESERVATION?
If you pay with a credit card? No, there’s no deposit required. But if you pay cash there is a hundred-dollar deposit, only on trucks. On trailers, it’s a $60 deposit. So be sure to schedule your reservation as soon as possible.
🤔 WHAT OTHER EQUIPMENT DO I NEED FOR MY MOVE?
Consider renting additional equipment for your move; such as furniture blankets, box dollies, appliance dollies, etc.
📆 CAN I CHANGE MY RESERVATION?
Yes, but it is important that you let the U-Haul rep know as far ahead as possible.
🙄 WHAT IF THE LOCATION DOESN’T HAVE THE EQUIPMENT THAT I NEED?
Your U-Haul rep can help you find a moving truck at a different location without you having to call every single U-Haul in your area. They will help make the reservation on your behalf even if it’s in a different city.
⚠️ WHY IS INSPECTING THE TRUCK SO IMPORTANT?
If you don’t let the U-Haul dealer know about any pre-existing damages, you may be held liable even if it wasn’t your fault. A quick tip that helps me out is I get my phone, take pictures all around the truck so I know what it looked like before.
🚨 IS IT A REQUIREMENT TO PURCHASE U-HAUL’S INSURANCE?
You don’t have to, but it’s strongly recommended that you do. Fixing a commercial vehicle is very expensive, and if you are involved in an accident you will be held responsible for any repairs that are needed.😱
⏳ IS THERE A CUT-OFF TIME WHEN RETURNING MY EQUIPMENT?
Yes, if you turn in your equipment after working hours you may get charged a $20 fee. However, if you download the U-Haul app, you can return the truck or equipment even after hours to avoid having to pay the after-hours fee.
