About your Estimated Fuel Costs

Our formula utilizes a MPG range for each rental truck size. We do this because the truck size is not the only factor in your fuel economy, other variables like the age of the truck, maintenance history, terrain and fuel type (unleaded or diesel) all play a role.

On average, you should expect your rented moving truck to fall within these mile per gallon ranges:
10'-12' Truck: 8-12 MPG, 14'-16' Truck: 7-11 MPG, 17' Truck: 6.5-10 MPG, 20'-22' Truck: 5-9 MPG, 24'-26' Truck: 4.5-6.5 MPG

A zip code must be entered.
