Comparing Moving Truck Options

Truck Rental vs. You Pack, We Drive

Looking for an affordable, low-stress moving option for a long-distance move? Go U-Pack®! We offer prices comparable to truck rental, but don’t require you to drive large, unfamiliar equipment. All you have to do is pack, load and unload, and we take care of the rest.

See how it works:


We’ll deliver a moving trailer or container to your door, give you three days to load, and then take it to your destination. And with transit times averaging just 2-5 business days, you’ll be able to get your new home set up quickly. No returning equipment or finding a local store — you’re free to travel in the comfort of your own vehicle.

Pay for the Space You Use 

Don’t worry about getting the right size rental truck for your belongings — use U-Pack and experience the flexibility and peace-of-mind our “pay for the space you use” structure provides. Our moving consultants will help you get an idea of the space you’ll need in the trailer, and then you’ll simply add or subtract your per-foot rate based on the space you end up using. The five-foot minimum is ideal for moving a small studio apartment, and the full trailer is enough space for a 3-4 bedroom home.

Truck Rental Price Comparison

Paying for additional things like fuel, sales tax, damage protection and highway tolls can make renting a moving truck more expensive than planned. Because our quotes include these fees, U-Pack rates are often very similar to the final truck rental price — and you don’t have to drive! Get a moving quote online or call 877-453-7274 to get a rate. Then, use our fuel calculator to see how much gas would cost for the same move in a rental truck.
