Truck Renter’s Guide


Is it your first time renting a truck or van? A little rusty since your last rental? Our Renter’s Checklist will walk you through the need to-do’s and must-know’s for your rental.



Select a rental truck or van


Renters typically measure the dimensions of their cargo as the first step to selecting a vehicle. Compare your dimensions to the ones we have listed for our vehicles. If you’re moving, we have helpful notes next to our vehicles estimating how many “rooms” they will hold. Check out our vehicle details before making your reservation.



Driver’s age and adding drivers




Payment for your rental


Most of our locations require you to pay with a major credit card in your name, with the exception of NY and CT, and may require a deposit. Amounts vary by location.

Some locations will accept a debit card linked to a checking account, but might have restrictions.

It’s best to contact your local branch.



Protection for you and your vehicle


We want you to rent with confidence. That’s why we offer a variety of protection products from roadside assistance to coverage for our vehicle and your passengers and belongings. Click to see all of our protection products and services.




Moving supplies and accessories


For your convenience, our branches have various pads, straps and hand trucks available to buy or rent to help your job go smoothly. Click review our moving supplies.






Need to tow? Our locations rent towing capable pickup trucks. Towing is available for ¾ and 1 ton pickups. Additional towing charges may apply. Contact your local branch for details.




Rental Safety


Safety first! Driving a truck or van may be very different from a regular car. Our staff will walk you through vehicle features, but before you pick up your rental, it will be helpful for you to think about the following: Are you going to need to back up your large truck? Does your truck have a lift gate? Are there rules about where you can park your rental vehicle?



We’re here to help answer any and all questions you have to ensure a safe, enjoyable rental experience.
