March 28th, 2011 - 2:19 PM

How much do truck rental discounts really save?

Let's be honest, everyone loves a discount.  If you're moving, you're probably no exception!  While truck rental discounts may seem like a good deal, keep in mind the extra costs in addition to the basic rental rate when you're getting moving quotes.

Even with a truck rental discount, what's the full price?
Truck rental prices typically will not include fuel, taxes, or a collision damage waiver to protect the driver of the truck.  Make sure to add these costs in, so that you can determine your overall cost.
