U-Haul Truck Rental
U-Haul rates are affordable for local moves—but the $19.95 rate you see advertised on its trucks rarely matches the final price.

What you need to know about your U-Haul quote
U-Haul rates for one-way moves are affected by these factors:
The price per day for any truck, cargo trailer, utility trailer, or car carrier is good for up to five days. After that, U-Haul will charge you $40 for every additional twenty-four hours.
So if your move takes six days instead of five, U-Haul will charge you roughly double for that extra day. Pretty annoying if you ask us, but at least it discourages the renters ahead of you from going over their time and dipping into yours.
This is where we’ve heard the most complaints about hidden fees. U-Haul’s known for hitting customers with excessive mileage charges after the fact. Ask clarifying questions before your move. Like, will you pay (literally) if you make an out-of-the-way pit stop on your road trip?
The cost of refilling your tank multiple times throughout your trip is easy to forget about when budgeting—especially since some trucks get as little as ten miles per gallon
What are U-Haul's rental services?
Don’t get us wrong: availability in all fifty states is a big deal.
But make sure you read your location’s Google reviews to see if it offers the services you need and if its customers are leaving happy. After all, moving companies aren’t like McDonald’s—the experience won’t be consistent at each location.
