Budget Truck Rental
I rented a truck a few weeks ago. Initially I walked in and met Lee, I think he's the manager. I wanted to use a coupon I had received in the mail. He was more than happy to help me and answer questions but told me that I could also get 25% off on the dolly rental if I made the reservation online. He even showed me where it said so on the coupon. I would have never known, I was in that hurry up and move mode. So he saved me quite a bit of money even when all he had to do was take my reservation & be done with me. I'd say that was excellent customer service. When I picked the truck up, I don't recall the woman's name, Valerie or Victoria maybe, but she was great. She was helpful and efficient and friendly.When I returned the next day I was back with Lee again and he was still the same super great guy, always smiling and in a good mood. Moving sucked but the moving truck rental company was great. The truck was clean, it was easy to drive, everything worked. I had the best possible experience, as best as moving can be anyway. I would highly recommend them to everyone.
Tips & Advices
Although special insurance isn’t always legally required for a moving truck, all auto insurance providers and moving specialists suggest you buy the special policy from the moving truck company. This is because most auto insurance policies have exclusions for covering vans and trucks over a certain size, and also because auto insurance will not cover the personal property inside a moving truck.
In order to drive a rented moving truck, a person must be on the rental agreement. Just as with rental cars, getting another driver put on your rental truck agreement may carry an additional fee per day.
Moving truck rental cost does not include the fuel cost. Make sure to find out from the rental company if there is anything to know about the type of gas the truck requires, as well as the location of the gas tank.
The rules about moving trucks and weigh stations vary somewhat by state. Some states do not require trucks to stop if the occupants are doing a personal move, not commercial moves. Others require all commercial trucks to stop, regardless of what they’re calling. When in doubt, stop.
Yes, pets are allowed in some moving trucks. However, all moving companies clearly state that renters should not put pets in the cargo area, and that pets should be in a transport carrier or properly harnessed for everyone’s safety. Moving truck rental companies all have clearly posted pet transport safety tips that you should review before moving day.
