Ryder Truck Rental
Feb 1, 2023
Can you use Ryder trucks for a personal move?
In the past, Ryder® offered rental trucks for personal moves, but that’s not the case anymore. Since 2019, their equipment has only been available for commercial business customers for round-trip use. If you used Ryder for a personal move in the past and were hoping to rent from them again, don’t worry. U-Pack® can help with comparable DIY moving options for your out-of-state relocation.
How does Ryder equipment compare to U-Pack?
While the equipment sizes are not identical, U-Pack can offer similar or larger loading space to Ryder trucks and enclosed trailers with our ReloCubes and moving trailers.
|Ryder Trucks||Equivalent U-Pack Equipment|
|Sprinter van||1-2 ReloCubes or 5-10 linear feet in a moving trailer|
|Box Truck||3-4 ReloCubes or 12-13 linear feet in a moving trailer|
|Straight Truck||5-6 ReloCubes or 21-22 linear feet in a moving trailer|
|Enclosed Trailer||1-2 28-ft moving trailers|
Here’s how those loading spaces break down:
Ryder 14-ft sprinter van vs. U-Pack equipment
- 547 cubic feet of loading space
- 2 ReloCubes = 618 cubic feet or 8 linear feet
in a moving trailer = approximately 600 cubic feet
Ryder 16-ft box truck vs. U-Pack equipment
- 960 cubic feet of space
- 3 ReloCubes = 924 cubic feet (4 = 1,232 cubic feet) or
13 linear feet in a moving trailer = approximately 975 cubic feet
Ryder 26-ft straight truck vs. U-Pack equipment
- 1,600 cubic feet of space.
- 5 ReloCubes = 1,540 cubic feet (6 = 1,848 cubic feet) or
22 linear feet in a moving trailer = approximately 1,650 cubic feet
What about an alternative for Ryder enclosed trailers?
Ryder also offered 53-ft enclosed trailers that had to be hauled by a commercial tractor. If you need that size equipment, U-Pack moving trailers would be the best fit for your move. Our 28-ft trailers offer flexibility — just use what you need and only pay for the space filled (down to a minimum of 5 linear feet). The price will be adjusted up or down based on the per-foot rate listed on the quote. It’s that simple! You can reserve more than one U-Pack trailer to ship your belongings if you need more than the 1,944 cubic feet of loading space available in one trailer.
