Enterprise is one of the biggest car rental companies in the United States, but what many may not realize is that it also offers truck rental services. You can rent a moving truck rental locally, but Enterprise only allows round-trip rentals, so you have to return your truck to the location you picked it up at. If you're making a big cross-country move, it's better to go through one of the bigger truck rental companies that offers one-way truck rentals.
Although Enterprise only offers local rental trucks, it gives you four options: a 15-foot parcel truck, a 16-foot cab-over truck with a lift gate, or a 24-foot or 26-foot straight truck with lift gates. The lift gates help save your back a little as you move heavy furniture to and from the truck, but this also means you cannot tow a trailer or a vehicle with the rental truck. On the plus side, you don't have to make a reservation for a truck far in advance – Enterprise works quickly to get you a moving truck when you need it.
Renting a truck with Enterprise means you pay more than just the per-day charge. There's a vehicle license fee, tax and mileage. Also, if you include another driver, you have to pay a fee for that convenience. Be sure to read all of the fine print before you sign a rental agreement with Enterprise, because some policies could specifically exclude you from renting. Drivers must be 21 years or older, and you must pay with a credit or debit card. A deposit is also required when you rent a truck with Enterprise.
To tow your vehicle, you need to have your own tow dolly or car carrier and rent a 0.75-ton or 1-ton pickup truck from Enterprise. The larger moving trucks have lift gates, which prevent towing. You don't need a special license to rent a truck from Enterprise, because its moving trucks weigh less than commercial trucks.
According to the U.S. Census Bureau, almost 15 percent of Americans move every year – more than 40 million people. And because more than half of those people move within the same county, local moving truck rentals are needed in almost any major city. Enterprise Truck Rental is available in 39 states and Puerto Rico.
Like other truck rental companies, Enterprise allows you to rent a truck for a day, week or month. The longer you rent a vehicle, the less it is likely to cost you in the long run. To get a cheap truck rental, be sure to check online for any promotions Enterprise may be holding so you can save money with your reservation. If you're a AAA member, you can save with Enterprise.
Enterprise offers 'round-the-clock roadside assistance, so you can contact the company through its toll-free number for help at any time. You can also call the same number or email the company if you have any questions about your reservation, rates or anything else regarding Enterprise rental trucks.
