Does Hertz® rent moving trucks?
If you’re looking to rent a moving truck from Hertz, chances are you’re having a hard time finding what you need. That’s because Hertz no longer offers moving trucks in the United States and Canada. Instead, Hertz refers customers to Penske® Truck Rental.

Create the move you need
One of the benefits of moving with U-Pack is that we look at each move individually. In fact, we understand that there's no universal moving solution because everyone has different needs. Because of that, we offer options to customize your experience — from the equipment type and space you use to the way your items are delivered. If you need to unload on a certain day, have parking restrictions on either end of the move, or are moving to a city with lots of street traffic, you may need a special delivery option. Take a look at our delivery choices to find the one that works best.

What extra costs do I need to factor into U-Haul® prices?

Moving company reviews
Choosing a long-distance moving company is an important decision. How do you decide who’s capable and trustworthy? A good way to start is to research and read consumer reviews from people who’ve previously moved with the companies you’re considering. Real life situations and their outcomes can help you determine whether or not a moving service is right for you.

Is a full-service moving company the best option for your move?
Like the name implies, full-service companies take care of everything for you. This means packing, loading, transportation and unloading are all done by a crew, and you aren’t responsible for managing the process. While this type of moving service is convenient, it doesn’t come without a price — full-service companies are typically the most expensive option. If you’re looking for a way to move without doing all of the work, but you don’t want to spend more than you budgeted (and maybe want a little more control over your belongings), consider a hybrid moving service like U-Pack®.

A close look at 26-foot box trucks
If you’re moving from a large house, you most likely have a lot of boxes and furniture to pack and load — which may have you wondering if there’s a rental truck big enough to hold everything.

U-Haul®, Penske® and Ryder® estimate their equipment to hold different household sizes, so it’s important to look into your options before making a decision. The information below can help you decide if a 26-foot truck is a good solution, or if an alternative like U-Pack® is the better way to move.

Small move solutions
Moving long distance with just a few belongings may not be as time-consuming as packing up an entire house, but it still requires some careful thought and preparation. Some possible small move scenarios could be:

Mobile storage options that fit your needs
It’s not unusual for people to need storage in conjunction with a long-distance move. After all, not all moves go directly from point A to point B. Many times people move out of their current house before their new one is ready. And others may take the time to go on vacation before settling in to a new location. No matter the reason, U-Pack® has portable storage solutions to fit your needs.

Comparing moving containers
Both U-Pack® and U-Haul® offer portable moving and storage containers that help make long distance moving more convenient. Each container type features ground-level loading and a lockable exterior, and each company can move you to and from all 50 states, Canada and Puerto Rico. While similarities are certainly present between the U-Box and ReloCube, differences in size, construction material and price can impact which service you choose.
