You finally got the time for that DIY home renovation project you’ve been itching to work on. But then you realize you don’t have the right kind of vehicle to haul all your supplies and furniture from the store to your home. This is where Short Term Pickup Truck Rentals come in handy.
We listed down a few of Omaha’s Go-To shops for short-term pickup truck rentals. Checkout the 3 R’s for each store: RATE - what it costs REQUIREMENTS - what you need to provide RESTRICTIONS - any restrictions that the shop or rental company has regarding the pickup rental
Sometimes a car just won’t do the job. Certain Lowe’s stores offer truck rentals on a first-come, first-served basis. Call a store near you to see if they can help. Pick it up and drop it off at Lowe’s. No purchase required to rent a pickup.
Rate: - $19 for 90 minutes plus $5 for every 15 minutes in excess - $89 for All-day rental
The Menards Pick-Up & Go Truck is available for rent, so you can have the option of bringing your larger purchases home yourself instead of waiting for them to be delivered. No purchase is necessary to rent the truck. They also offer the option to rent a Cargo Van instead of a pickup.
Rate: - $18.95 for first 75 minutes plus $5 for every 15 minutes in excess - A charge of $0.40 for each mile driven - A weekend surcharge may apply
Requirements: - Driver’s license - Proof of insurance (insurance card must show effective dates, company name and policy number) - Credit card - A Rental Deposit (amount determined at time of rental) will be collected at the time of rental
Restrictions: - Renter must be at least 21 years old - You must return the vehicle to the store by the end of the business day.
Originally intended for helping you haul all your stuff as you move from one house to another, U-Haul offers Pickup Truck and Cargo Van rentals for a daily rate with a mileage charge. You can rent the vehicle for just a couple of hours but you would still pay the rate for the entire day with the mileage charge. But unlike the other stores, you can make an online reservation with U-Haul. They even have a Reservation Guarantee.
Rate: - $19.95 per day (same rate even if you rent it for less than 24 hours) - A charge of $0.79 for each mile driven - Environmental Fee ( varies depending on the number of days you are renting; for 24 hours or less it’s usually $1 only)
Requirements: - Driver’s license - Credit card (or a Debit card with a Visa or Mastercard logo) - Rental Deposit (only if you use a Debit card)
Restrictions: - Renter must be at least 18 years old
