Home Depot Truck Rental

With up-front hourly pricing and no hidden fees, Home Depot makes its truck rental costs clear, so you know exactly how to budget for your local move.

Home Depot’s rental trucks

Home Depot has more than just hammers and home appliances—it also offers moving truck rentals for local moves. Home Depot’s rental trucks come in several sizes to fit your needs, whether you’re moving a studio apartment down the street or a 3-bedroom house across town or simply hauling equipment for your latest home improvement project.

Of course, Home Depot’s truck rental services aren’t perfect. Local truck rentals can get pricey fast with surcharges added every 15 minutes you go over your base rental time, and you can’t pre-book a truck for local moves.

But the flexibility to pick up a truck when you need it and pay only for the time you use it is convenient, especially because it’s hard to always estimate moving time perfectly.

How much do Home Depot truck rentals cost?

Home Depot offers three different types of moving trucks for local moves:

Home Depot’s pickup trucks and cargo vans match in price and capacity, so it’s more of a matter of if you want a roof over the things you’re moving. If you have lots of oddly shaped furniture, you might choose the pickup truck, but if you’re moving boxes of clothes and fragile items, the cargo van might be a better fit.

The Home Depot box truck is slightly larger, making it $10 pricier at the outset. But all three trucks cost the same additional $5 per 15 minutes after your initial 75 minutes, so that’s not much more money for the extra space.

Plus, your deposit is totally refundable when you bring the truck back in good condition.

The nice thing about the Load ’n Go option is that, unlike other moving truck rental companies, rental rates are hourly. So you don’t have to pay for a whole day if you only need a truck for a few hours.

Home Depot truck rental cost factors

Unlike many other local truck rental options, Home Depot gives you unlimited miles (we love that freedom!). However, you still have to consider gas costs for the distance you’re driving. You must fill the tank before you return your truck to Home Depot.

Home Depot truck rental features

First things first: Home Depot has thought about driver safety with its rental trucks. All trucks offer help for reverse driving, whether through a backup alarm for the pickup, a rearview sensing system for the cargo van, or a rearview camera for the box truck.

Some trucks also include cargo tie-downs to secure your stuff and cargo lights so you can see where everything is if you’re still loading or unloading after dark (we’ve been there). The only extra security feature you may want is a pack of furniture pads, which Home Depot sells right in the store.

Plus, the box truck comes with loading ramps, so you don’t have to worry about breaking your back to throw stuff in the truck.
