About Enterprise Truck Rental

Enterprise Truck Rental is a department of Enterprise Rent-a-Car, one of the largest rental car companies in the U.S. The company, which was founded in 1957, has around 350 truck rental locations distributed across the country. Their locations for car rentals are much more than that, though, with over 9,000 standard locations and 420 airport locations countrywide.

While the 350 truck locations may be a bit limited, Enterprise makes up for it with nationwide availability. Irrespective of where you are in the U.S., there is always an accessible Enterprise location.

Another thing that stands out about Enterprise is its wide variety of options when it comes to truck sizes. Currently, the company has 14 truck-size options, meaning you're likely to find a truck that suits your needs when planning a move.

How Much Does Enterprise Truck Rental Cost?

Enterprise charges a base rate for trucks plus a per-mile rate. On average, the base rate is about $129 per day, while the mileage rate is about $0.33 per mile. Kindly note that these are just averages, and costs may vary depending on your needs.

We've seen the base rate go as low as $39.99 a day to as high as $228 a day, with per-mile rates going from unlimited miles to $0.99 per mile. The only way to know your exact rental costs is to request a quote.

Besides, just like with other truck rental companies, costs may fluctuate due to various factors like your location, how long you need the truck, distance of your move, truck availability, and time of the move. The good thing is that Enterprise maintains a high level of transparency in its pricing, so you won't incur unexpected costs on your final bill.

Additional costs you may incur

On top of the base rate and the per-mile rate, you may also incur the following costs:

  • Deposit: Depending on your location, a refundable deposit may be required before getting the truck.

  • Insurance coverage costs: Enterprise offers four main coverage options: personal accident insurance, roadside protection, damage waiver, and supplemental liability protection. Your total rental costs will increase depending on the protection plan you’ve chosen.

  • Fuel costs: Enterprise expects you to return the truck with the same amount of fuel as you picked it up with (i.e., a full tank)

  • Extra time costs: If you’re late returning the truck or need additional time with the truck, you will incur charges for the extra time you take.

  • Taxes: Taxes will depend on your location, so call your nearest Enterprise location to determine how much you need to pay.

What Services Does Enterprise Truck Rental Offer?

Enterprise Truck Rental offers a variety of trucks and vans, all with varying sizes and payloads. This means there's something suitable for you when planning a DIY move. Here is a breakdown of their services.

Box Trucks

There are four main Enterprise box truck rentals. The smallest one is the 15’ parcel van, with a payload of up to 5,000 lbs, while the largest is the 26 box truck with a payload of 10,000 lbs.

Each box truck comes with a lift gate or a pull-out ramp, making it easy for you to load your belongings into the truck.

Stakebed Trucks

These types of trucks are mainly used for commercial purposes, like when doing a landscaping project or moving building materials. Enterprise offers 12", 16", and 24" stakebed trucks, with payloads of up to 5,300, 6,000, and 10,000 lbs respectively.

Pickup Trucks

A pickup truck may not be ideal for a full residential or commercial move. But if you’re looking to move some farm equipment, machinery, boat, RV trailer, or anything of that sort, a pickup truck is an attractive option. Enterprise rental pickups have capacities ranging from 0.5 to 1 ton, with all-wheel driving capabilities.

Cargo Vans

You may not need to hire a full truck when moving a few items. In that case, a rental cargo van may be what you need. You can choose a high-roof cargo van with a payload of 3,700 lbs or a compact cargo van with a payload of 1480 lbs.

How to Rent a Truck with Enterprise

With NearbyMovers, you can find Enterprise around you easily by entering your zip code or address.

Enterprise doesn't have an online tool to help you choose the right type or size of a truck. You have to go through all their options and determine what suits you best. Thankfully every truck option is accompanied by a description that can help you choose the right one. It also helps to do some prior research on the truck that may be suitable for your specific moving needs.

Upon determining the right truck for you, you'll find more details on rental costs, insurance, and other things on the next page. You can then commit to the price and date, although you aren't required to pay anything until your pickup.

On the day of pickup, you’ll be required to pay a deposit. Once you're done with your move, Enterprise requires you to return the truck where you picked it up. For this reason, Enterprise rental trucks may not work well with long-distance moves. You're also required to complete payment once you've returned the vehicle.

Pros and Cons of Enterprise Truck Rental

Below are the main pros and cons of Enterprise Truck Rental:


    • Multiple options for rental trucks

Enterprise has 14 options for rental trucks, which is probably the highest in the market. Each option has its size, capacity, and capability, making it easy to find something that meets your specific needs.

    • Wide reach

As already stated, Enterprise has about 350 locations for rental trucks throughout the U.S. No matter where you are or the city you’re moving to, you’re likely to find an Enterprise location there.

    • Easy online reservations

Unlike most moving truck rental companies, you don't have to make a reservation in advance with Enterprise (although it's recommendable to give advance notice). If you're moving in a hurry, this is good news for you.

    • Free Mileage

Enterprise may offer you free mileage for the first 300 miles.


    • Only suitable for local moves

The fact that you have to return your truck to the same location you picked it makes Enterprise unsuitable for long-distance moves. Imagine moving to a new city 900 miles away only to turn back the following day and return the truck. That can be a bit tiring.

    • A deposit is required

Many Enterprise locations require you to give a deposit before picking up a truck.

    • No Additional Moving Assistance

Sure, Enterprise provides some furniture pads and a hand truck to help when loading the truck. However, you won't get any packing materials or even packing and moving assistance.
