Enterprise Truck Rental

Enterprise offers more truck options than any other rental truck company out there. The catch? It does only local moves.

What features does Enterprise offer?

Thinking about going the DIY route for your next move? You probably know Enterprise best as a big-name rental car company, but it’s also a trustworthy rental truck option for local moves.

With locations in forty-six states and an impressive lineup of moving trucks to choose from, Enterprise makes it easy to find the right rental truck near you. You have to return the truck to the same location you picked it up at, so if your move is more than a few hundred miles, you’ll probably want to get a truck from somewhere else.

Enterprise’s moving services

One downside, however, is that Enterprise doesn’t offer truck rentals for one-way moves, which eliminates a lot of potential customers and bumps it down our rankings.

How much does Enterprise cost?

In general, moving truck rental prices include a daily rate to rent a truck plus a small fee for every mile you drive.

Depending on the Enterprise location, we’ve seen truck rental rates vary anywhere from $89 to $475 per day and price-per-mile range from $0.20 to $0.69.

Because of this, you’ll want to factor in the distance you’re driving. While some companies include mileage estimates in their quotes, Enterprise doesn’t—you’ll have to pull up your phone’s calculator and calculate the mileage cost yourself.

To get an idea of how much renting a truck with Enterprise would cost, we crunched the numbers on a 60-mile move with a 24-foot box truck over two days. For our quote, we went with the bare minimum plan and didn’t include any insurance.

What protection plans does Enterprise offer?

Enterprise offers four types of coverage on its rentals: damage waiver, personal accident insurance, roadside protection, and supplemental liability protection.

The cost is based on set rates per day. So the total cost of your protection plan will depend on the coverage you choose plus the number of days you rent your truck.

There’s really no cut-and-dried price for each protection plan because—like we’ve said before—it’ll all depend on the location you’re working with.

That said, your online quote can give you an idea of how much insurance coverage will cost. For our move, supplemental liability protection was an additional $25.99 per day.
