Requirements to rent a U-Haul
There are three main things required to reserve and rent a truck. These are:
Be 18 years old or older
Having a valid driver’s license
Having a credit/debit card
What type of license is required?
A valid driver’s license is required to rent a truck. It can be from:
One of the 50 US states
The District of Columbia
A Canadian province
A foreign country
The only special license requirement is for moves in Quebec, Canada, where a Commercial Driver’s License (CDL) is required to rent a 26-foot truck.
Why do you need a credit card?
A credit or debit card is required to reserve a truck online (no deposit is required). If you don’t have a credit card or prefer to use cash, you can reserve the truck in person. In-town rentals need a deposit of $100 or the estimated charges (whichever is greater). One-way moves require $100 plus the rental rate. The total estimated charges will be due when you pick up the equipment, whether paying by cash, debit or credit.
Note: The cardholder has to be present at pickup, or whoever else signs the contract will be held responsible for the equipment (if someone else picks up the truck, they will be required to provide a credit card, driver’s license and phone number).
Do you need insurance to rent a U-Haul?
U-Haul offers optional damage coverage since in most cases credit cards and auto insurance policies do not cover the trucks or trailers. If you opt out of purchasing additional coverage, you would be financially responsible for the equipment and any damages.
