How to Save Money When Renting a Truck from Budget Trucks

How to Save Money When Renting a Truck from Budget Trucks

If you are planning to rent a truck because you are moving, we know how expensive moving can be and saving money is one of the top priorities. Of course, moving trucks are not all that we have available for hire. You can save money on renting a commercial vehicle too. In addition to hiring out moving trucks, we have different rental trucks available that you can use for a number of different tasks including transporting employees, moving merchandise from one location to another, or towing a trailer. We are featuring 5 ways to save money on your next truck rental.

Plan in Advance to Take Advantage of Special Offers

Moving Truck Special

Since you normally have to plan out a rental in advance, check out the Budget Trucks deals and specials page in advance of your rental. You will see that there are special deals, coupons and discounts if you rent a truck during a certain time of day, certain time of the week, or with certain conditions. If you can make some changes to your truck rental, it can mean big savings on your truck rental.

  • Rent a truck overnight: If you can make your move over one night, enjoy some deep discounts when you pick up the truck rental late in the afternoon and return it by the next morning. This also can work for you if you need to hire a truck to move merchandise or contents of your office or other business assets.
  • Choose a weekday deal: We often have different deals available for rentals during the week. Some specials are for Monday and Tuesday, some are Monday through Thursday specials. If you can avoid renting on the weekend, when demand and prices can be higher, then a weekday truck rental deal are just for you.
  • Weekend rental specials: Don’t think that weekend deals aren’t available either. Even though demand might be higher for moving truck rentals on the weekend, we have a special offer available for a whole weekend package.
  • One way truck rental offer: In many cases, truck rental companies want you to return the truck to the same location you rented it from. However, that is not always very practical when you are moving to a new city. We offer one way truck rental specials that don’t have to be returned to the origin city. Our one way specials run between all major cities.
  • Hourly truck hire special deal: In some cases, you may only need to rent a truck for a few hours to get the job done, transport what or who needs to be moved and then can return the truck. We offer special hourly rates at many of our locations; they are less than the daily rate, so it means savings for you.

Budget Truck Rental Discounts in Every State of Australia

Location - Truck Rental Discounts

Don’t worry if you live in a remote area or even a busy city that might normally mean high prices. Truck hire discounts are available in every state and territory in Australia. Check the following links for truck rental discounts in each location:

Many of our locations are unable to obtain insurance for under 21 year old drivers who are therefore required, prior to the start of the rental, to present an original Insurance Certificate of Currency - not a cover note - that indemnifies the replacement value of Budget's vehicle and third party property damage up to $20 million for any one occurrence. The certificate must be issued by a reputable insurer (as opposed to a broker) and is accepted at the discretion of the prospective location with which arrangements should be made directly.
