U-Haul

U-Haul

4.1 How much is a U-Haul?

That will depend on a few things.  Are you returning it back to where you rented it? Or are you taking it One-way to another city?

U-Haul does not offer unlimited miles.  However, if you are taking the truck One-Way, a certain number of miles is given in the price that you are quoted.  Any miles above that would be $0.40 per mile (as of 3/25/2020).

In-town truck costs:
10' truck is $19.95 per day
15' truck is $29.95 per day
20' and 26' trucks are $39.95 per day

and $0.79 a mile if you start your rental Sunday through Thursday.  It bumps up to $0.99 a mile if you rent the truck on Friday or Saturday. Mile cost is the same no matter the size of the truck.

In addition, there is tax, environmental fees, and Insurance.  Insurance is optional, however, please be aware that if something happens to the truck or trailer, U-Haul expects full payment for the damage when it is returned.  

We are asked often for a pickup truck or van.  We do not have any at this time.  

Trailers costs:

As with the trucks, if you take a trailer one-way, depending on where you take it will depend on how much it costs.

In-town trailers range from $14.95 - $54.95 (as of 3/25/2020) per day, depending on the size.  As with the trucks, there is tax, environmental fees, and insurance on top of that price.  Insurance is again, optional, but the same rule applies to pay for any damage when it is turned it.

For the most up to date pricing and any pricing for one-way usage, please go to uhaul.com or call us directly for a quote.  

As well, we can make a reservation for anyone across the US.  You don't necessarily have to live in our mountain communities.  We'll be happy to make the reservation for you.

 

4.2 Can I rent a pickup truck or van?

No, we're sorry, but we do not have any pickup trucks or vans.  However, we'd be happy to set up a reservation for you at another U-Haul that does.  Please be aware that all pickup trucks and vans are in-town rentals only.  This means that wherever you rent the truck from, you must return it to the same location.

4.3 Why is it more expensive to rent on Friday and Saturday?

U-Haul considers Friday and Saturday peak rental days and does charge $0.20 more per mile.  This is standard for all U-Haul locations.

 

4.4 Do I really have to refill the gas tank?

Yes and No.  By signing the contract, you are agreeing that you will return the truck with the same amount of gas as when you received it.  So, in that sense, yes, you do.

But we are going to advise you to do it for another reason.  Besides it being the right thing to do, trucks that are returned with less gas than when it went out, will be charged heavily by U-Haul.  They charge approximately $8.00 a gallon to refill it to where it was when it left. Compound that if you bring it back at less than a quarter of a tank, they add an additional $50 to your bill.  These prices are set by U-Haul, not by us.  (Prices are subject to change)  

4.5 What is a cleaning fee?

U-Haul requests that we charge a cleaning fee if the truck is returned dirty.  For our location, if the truck is a little dusty, we won't charge that fee.  If the truck will take more then a quick blow out with a leaf blower, we need to start charging for our time to clean the truck. The cost starts at $25 and we have seen it go up as high as $1500.  Normal dirt from dirt roads on the outside of the truck are not subjected to the cleaning fee.
