Budget Truck Rental
How much does Budget Truck Rental cost?
While Budget’s base rates are cheaper than its competitors—especially for local moves—it’s not necessarily the cheapest rental truck company for every situation. Budget is no stranger to last-minute fees, so you may end up paying more than your original quote suggested.
Tons of discounts
Low one-way costs
Lots of locations
No guaranteed reservations
Only 3 truck sizes
Budget Truck Rental cost factors
Here’s the full breakdown of the cost factors to rent a truck from Budget:
The $150 deposit is fully refundable as long as you don’t bring the truck back dirty, with less gas than you started with, or past your allotted time. Plan accordingly, though: Sometimes the deposit can take weeks to hit your bank account.
Budget Truck Rental fees
Here are some of those hidden fees.
For local moves, you’ll pay a rate per mile, which we’ve seen as low as $0.60 and as high as $1.00. Our recommendation? Talk with your location to see if a little negotiation is possible—some customers in the past have been able to talk down higher rates.
Heads up: You can cancel your reservation up to 48 hours before your pickup time. After that, it’ll cost you up to $75.
Every day you extend past your drop-off date, Budget will charge you your truck’s daily rate. For long-distance moves, you’ll pay $85.00 for each additional day, plus $0.85 per mile.
Budget Truck Rental coverage options
Budget’s customer service is pretty on point, though, so the representative you’re working with should be able to tell you your options.
