How to Compare Rental Trucks for Moving One Way


If you're planning a long-distance move, begin your preparations early and explore renting a moving van or truck with a one-way option. You can rent the truck and drop it off at your destination. Comparing prices among many companies will help you save money during your move.

  • Calculate the number of miles between your current city and your destination. This is important because some moving companies charge a flat rate to rent the truck and an additional cost per mile.

  • Call and ask for quotes at different moving companies. Be sure to ask for the flat rate charge of the truck, mileage fees, insurance and additional charges for the one-way option. Some rental companies also have an extra fee for each state you'll be driving in. Compare prices among at least five companies. Calculate the total cost for each company.

  • Ask if the rental truck company offers things such as free boxes, furniture pads and moving dollies. Factor these things into the total cost of your move before making a decision.
