1. When is a One Way Cargo Van Rental Useful?

When moving long distance, most minds instinctively jump to the cost of a moving truck rental. If I had a dollar for all the times I've talked to people about other options, I could be well into early retirement by now. As full-size moving trucks lead the industry, it's difficult to see another way to get the job done.
 
The fact is that even the smallest of these trucks may be far too large to transport a single person's items. Additionally, it's illegal to transport things such as plants and pets in a moving truck. If you have family heirlooms or other fragile items, you'll be reluctant to hand those over to movers. And sometimes, it's difficult for a bulky moving truck to reach a destination on a narrow street. So, what's the solution? Renting a one-way cargo van.

2. Affordability is Beneficial

Renting a passenger van moving truck could prove costly if you don’t have the knowledge of how to operate it. Trucks and cargo van rentals can be cost-effective if you know how to pack it for a one-way trip. If you want to share the space with others, it's ideal to combine your van with a cargo trailer, if necessary. For those relocating an entire family or moving away to college, a long-distance cargo van rental is the way to go. Even if you're staying local, a moving truck rental is ideal for your relocation. It is also an excellent choice and affordable for those who are moving items within city limits obviously with the correct truck license.

3. Small but Mighty

Despite the small appearance, cargo vans can hold a ton of stuff! A single cargo van can fit around thirty individual boxes ranging in size from large to medium to small. With efficient van loading, you're insulating items together to shield them from damage in transit.


A one-way cargo van rental is the perfect option for smaller items that can't fit into a regular vehicle. Many people ship their cars via an auto carrier so they don't put miles on the vehicle. Want points for miles vouchers to any state in the country? Fill in the form on the page and choose your vehicle, then manage your move on our site.


Although its purpose is moving cargo, this van is versatile. Customers can move a small apartment or even the contents of a small office. Keep in mind, though, that only two adults can fit in the front seat, and plan ahead. The back of the van will transport your items, so there's no room for passengers.

4. Know the Size and Date You Need & Book It

When it comes to a one-way cargo van, the vehicle’s size is of utmost importance. Most of these vans are standard size, providing the customer with up to 300 cubic feet of space. Before renting one of these vans, be sure you know how much space you need. Compare the van's space with the boxes that you have to carry to see if all can fit in the van to accommodate a one-way move.

Make sure to find a one-way cargo van or rental truck that is available for your scheduled move. Most likely, a proper reservation is the only way to secure a vehicle. For example, at a car rental company, there are no promises that they'll have one of these vehicles when you need it.

You don’t want to assume anything.


5. Before Using One Way Cargo Rentals, Be Informed

Using a one-way company is the easiest way to move small items from one city location to the next. For your long-distance or state to state move, you may need a one-way cargo trailer.

It is always safer when you are well aware of the quantity of goods you intend to move before going ahead to rent a cargo van. You don't want to rent a cargo van, pack up, attempt to put your properties inside, only to find out that the space is inadequate. Furthermore, when you are renting a cargo van, you might also want to hire some expert to help with parking your goods. This is because it requires a lot of effort to arrange park and move your goods into a cargo van, except you have a lot of friends and/or family members that are willing to help you. Furthermore, the experts will know how to properly arrange your goods to save space and prevent breakage.

One way cargo van rental is essential especially when large families carry large amounts of possesions that are extremely fragile and expensive. Typically, you'll want to load one way cargos last (and isolated) to be sure each piece is loaded safely and sure to hold for the duration of the ride.

Garry thanks for that tip. I can see how having a cargo van helps when you need to transport a good amount of valuable goods. They work great for that application as you get to drive it around yourself and you won't have to worry about someone driving off with your valuables.

I’m planning to move but not sure of the exact time yet. I never knew it could be this easy to rent a cargo van. As a means to cut down the cost of hiring movers, I think it’s perfectly ideal for me to go for a one way cargo van rental. I have a few fragile items and my entire property is not much. My only worry now would be how to ascertain if the van can contain all items at once coz that would be the most appropriate deal for me. This is interesting! I’d hope to be allowed to hire just one expert to assist with the packing just to enable me to have a taste of professionalism in the packing while my friends and I help in our own way.

Does one way van rental companies supply insurance for the furniture move? And if we share a van, do we have to take each our own insurance?

Hi Paige,

The providing of insurance definitely depends on the company supplying the insurance. This also goes for the insurance when two people are sharing a van. It depends entirely on the provider of the rental cargo van. Some cargo van rental companies need you to purchase your own insurance for your move while other companies may provide them with the cargo van itself.

This is great except no one rents cargo vans for long distance moves. I have just the right amount of stuff for a van. The smallest truck is too big. But, no company rents a cargo van. What van rentals were you referring to?

I couldn't find any companies that rent one way cargo vans, so I was excited when I came across this article. Did I miss something? I thought this article would lead me to companies that rent one way cargo vans. But, that is not the case. As some others have already commented, there seems to be no companies that do. So what was the goal of this article? I think I missed it.

Did You Know

Question In the United States, the term 'full trailer' is used for a freight trailer supported by front and rear axles and pulled by a drawbar. This term is slightly different in Europe, where a full trailer is known as an A-frame drawbar trail. A full trailer is 96 or 102 in (2.4 or 2.6 m) wide and 35 or 40 ft (11 or 12 m) long.

Question

Very light trucks. Popular in Europe and Asia, many mini-trucks are factory redesigns of light automobiles, usually with monocoque bodies. Specialized designs with substantial frames such as the Italian Piaggio shown here are based upon Japanese designs (in this case by Daihatsu) and are popular for use in "old town" sections of European cities that often have very narrow alleyways. Regardless of the name, these small trucks serve a wide range of uses. In Japan, they are regulated under the Kei car laws, which allow vehicle owners a break on taxes for buying a smaller and less-powerful vehicle (currently, the engine is limited to 660 ccs {0.66L} displacement). These vehicles are used as on-road utility vehicles in Japan. These Japanese-made mini trucks that were manufactured for on-road use are competing with off-road ATVs in the United States, and import regulations require that these mini trucks have a 25 mph (40 km/h) speed governor as they are classified as low-speed vehicles. These vehicles have found uses in construction, large campuses (government, university, and industrial), agriculture, cattle ranches, amusement parks, and replacements for golf carts.Major mini truck manufacturers and their brands: Daihatsu Hijet, Honda Acty, Mazda Scrum, Mitsubishi Minicab, Subaru Sambar, Suzuki Carry
 
As with many things in Europe and Asia, the illusion of delicacy and proper manners always seems to attract tourists.

These are very popular for use in "old town" sections of European cities, which often have very narrow alleyways.

Yet, in Japan they are regulated under the Kei car laws, which allow vehicle owners a break in taxes for buying a small and less-powerful vehicle. Currently, the engine is limited to 660 cc [0.66L] displacement. These vehicles began being used as on-road utility vehicles in Japan. Classified as a low speed vehicle, these Japanese-made mini trucks were manufactured for on-road use for competing the the off-road ATVs in the United States. Import regulations require that the mini trucks have a 25 mph (40km/h) speed governor. Again, this is because they are low speed vehicles.
 
However, these vehicles have found numerous amounts of ways to help the community. They invest money into the government, universities, amusement parks, and replacements for golf cars. They have some major Japanese mini truck manufacturarers as well as brands such as: Daihatsu Hijet, Honda Acty, Mazda Scrum, Mitsubishit Minicab, Subaru Sambar, and Suzuki Carry.

Question As most people have experienced, moving does involve having the appropriate materials. Some materials you might find at home or may be more resourceful to save money while others may choose to pay for everything. Either way materials such as boxes, paper, tape, and bubble wrap with which to pack box-able and/or protect fragile household goods. It is also used to consolidate the carrying and stacking on moving day. Self-service moving companies offer another viable option. It involves the person moving buying a space on one or more trailers or shipping containers. These containers are then professionally driven to the new location.

Question In 1978 Sylvester Stallone starred in the film "F.I.S.T.". The story is loosely based on the 'Teamsters Union'. This union is a labor union which includes truck drivers as well as its then president, Jimmy Hoffa.

Question Trailer stability can be defined as the tendency of a trailer to dissipate side-to-side motion. The initial motion may be caused by aerodynamic forces, such as from a cross wind or a passing vehicle. One common criterion for stability is the center of mass location with respect to the wheels, which can usually be detected by tongue weight. If the center of mass of the trailer is behind its wheels, therefore having a negative tongue weight, the trailer will likely be unstable. Another parameter which is less commonly a factor is the trailer moment of inertia. Even if the center of mass is forward of the wheels, a trailer with a long load, and thus large moment of inertia, may be unstable.

Question AMSA wanted to help consumers avoid untrustworthy or illegitimate movers. In January 2008, AMSA created the ProMover certification program for its members. As a member, you must have federal interstate operating authority. Members are also required to pass an annual criminal back check, be licensed by the FMCSA, and agree to abide by ethical standards. This would include honesty in advertising and in business transaction with customers. Each must also sign a contract committing to adhere to applicable Surface Transportation Board and FMCSA regulations. AMSA also takes into consideration and examines ownership. They are very strict, registration with state corporation commissions. This means that the mover must maintain at least a satisfactory rating with the Better Business Bureau (BBB). As one can imagine, those that pass are authorized to display the ProMove logo on the websites and in marketing materials. However, those that fail will be expelled from the program (and AMSA) if they cannot correct discrepancies during probation.

Question “Writer-director James Mottern said he was influenced by nuanced, beloved movies of the 1970s such as "The Last Detail" and "Five Easy Pieces." Mottern said his female trucker character began with a woman he saw at a Southern California truck stop — a "beautiful woman, bleach blonde ... skin tanned to leather walked like a Teamster, blue eyes.” - Paul Brownfield

Question The United States Department of Transportation has become a fundamental necessity in the moving industry. It is the pinnacle of the industry, creating and enforcing regulations for the sake of safety for both businesses and consumers alike. However, it is notable to appreciate the history of such a powerful department. The functions currently performed by the DOT were once enforced by the Secretary of Commerce for Transportation. In 1965, Najeeb Halaby, administrator of the Federal Aviation Adminstration (FAA), had an excellent suggestion. He spoke to the current President Lyndon B. Johnson, advising that transportation be elevated to a cabinet level position. He continued, suggesting that the FAA be folded or merged, if you will, into the DOT. Clearly, the President took to Halaby's fresh ideas regarding transportation, thus putting the DOT into place.

Question

The Federal Bridge Gross Weight Formula is a mathematical formula used in the United States to determine the appropriate gross weight for a long distance moving vehicle, based on the axle number and spacing. Enforced by the Department of Transportation upon long-haul truck drivers, it is used as a means of preventing heavy vehicles from damaging roads and bridges. This is especially in particular to the total weight of a loaded truck, whether being used for commercial moving services or for long distance moving services in general.
 
According to the Federal Bridge Gross Weight Formula, the total weight of a loaded truck (tractor and trailer, 5-axle rig) cannot exceed 80,000 lbs in the United States. Under ordinary circumstances, long-haul equipment trucks will weight about 15,000 kg (33,069 lbs). This leaves about 20,000 kg (44,092 lbs) of freight capacity. Likewise, a load is limited to the space available in the trailer, normally with dimensions of 48 ft (14.63 m) or 53 ft (16.15 m) long, 2.6 m (102.4 in) wide, 2.7 m (8 ft 10.3 in) high and 13 ft 6 in or 4.11 m high.

Question Advocation for better transportation began historically in the late 1870s of the United States. This is when the Good Roads Movement first occurred, lasting all the way throughout the 1920s. Bicyclist leaders advocated for improved roads. Their acts led to the turning of local agitation into the national political movement it became.

Question The term "lorry" has an ambiguous origin, but it is likely that its roots were in the rail transport industry. This is where the word is known to have been used in 1838 to refer to a type of truck (a freight car as in British usage) specifically a large flat wagon. It may derive from the verb lurry, which means to pull or tug, of uncertain origin. It's expanded meaning was much more exciting as "self-propelled vehicle for carrying goods", and has been in usage since 1911. Previously, unbeknownst to most, the word "lorry" was used for a fashion of big horse-drawn goods wagon.

Question

Compliance, Safety, and Accountability (CSA) are fundamental to the FMCSA's compliance program. The purpose of the CSA program is to oversee and focus on motor carriers' safety performance. To enforce such safety regulations, the CSA conducts roadside inspections and crash investigations. The program issues violations when instances of noncompliance with CSA safety regulations are exposed.
 
Unfortunately, the CSA's number of safety investigation teams and state law enforcement partners are rather small in comparison to the millions of CMV companies and commercial driver license (CDL) holders. A key factor in the CSA program is known as the Safety Measurement System (SMS). This system relies on data analysis to identify unsafe companies to arrange them for safety interventions. SMS is incredibly helpful to CSA in finding and holding companies accountable for safety performance.  

Question There are many different types of trailers that are designed to haul livestock, such as cattle or horses. Most commonly used are the stock trailer, which is enclosed on the bottom but has openings at approximately. This opening is at the eye level of the animals in order to allow ventilation. A horse trailer is a much more elaborate form of stock trailer. Generally horses are hauled with the purpose of attending or participating in competition. Due to this, they must be in peak physical condition, so horse trailers are designed for the comfort and safety of the animals. They're typically well-ventilated with windows and vents along with specifically designed suspension. Additionally, horse trailers have internal partitions that assist animals staying upright during travel. It's also to protect other horses from injuring each other in transit. There are also larger horse trailers that may incorporate more specialized areas for horse tack. They may even include elaborate quarters with sleeping areas, bathroom, cooking facilities etc.

Question

In the moving industry, transportation logistics management is incredibly important. Essentially, it is the management that implements and controls efficiency, the flow of storage of goods, as well as services. This includes related information between the point of origin and the point of consumption to meet customer's specifications. Logistics is quite complex but can be modeled, analyzed, visualized, and optimized by simulation software. Generally, the goal of transportation logistics management is to reduce or cut the use of such resources. A professional working in the field of moving logistics management is called a logistician.

Question In 1986 Stephen King released horror film "Maximum Overdrive", a campy kind of story. It is really about trucks that become animated due to radiation emanating from a passing comet. Oddly enough, the trucks force humans to pump their diesel fuel. Their leader is portrayed as resembling Spider-Man's antagonist Green Goblin.

Question Released in 1998, the film Black Dog featured Patrick Swayze as a truck driver who made it out of prison. However, his life of crime continued, as he was manipulated into the transportation of illegal guns. Writer Scott Doviak has described the movie as a "high-octane riff on White Line Fever" as well as "a throwback to the trucker movies of the 70s".

Question The 1950's were quite different than the years to come. They were more likely to be considered "Knights of the Road", if you will, for helping stranded travelers. In these times truck drivers were envied and were viewed as an opposition to the book "The Organization Man". Bestseller in 1956, author William H. Whyte's novel describes "the man in the gray flannel suit", who sat in an office every day. He's describing a typical office style job that is very structured with managers watching over everyone. Truck drivers represented the opposite of all these concepts. Popular trucking songs glorified the life of drivers as independent "wanderers". Yet, there were attempts to bring back the factory style efficiency, such as using tachnographs. Although most attempts resulted in little success. Drivers routinely sabotaged and discovered new ways to falsify the machine's records.

Question The decade of the 70's in the United States was a memorable one, especially for the notion of truck driving. This seemed to dramatically increase popularity among trucker culture. Throughout this era, and even in today's society, truck drivers are romanticized as modern-day cowboys and outlaws. These stereotypes were due to their use of Citizens Band (CB) radios to swap information with other drivers. Information regarding the locations of police officers and transportation authorities. The general public took an interest in the truckers 'way of life' as well. Both drivers and the public took interest in plaid shirts, trucker hats, CB radios, and CB slang.

Question In today's popular culture, recreational vehicles struggle to find their own niche. Travel trailers or mobile home with limited living facilities, or where people can camp or stay have been referred to as trailers. Previously, many would refer to such vehicles as towable trailers.

Question A Ministry of Transport (or) Transportation is responsible for transportation within a country. Administration usually falls upon the Minister for Transport. The term may also be applied to the departments or other government agencies administering transport in a nation who do not use ministers. There are various and vast responsibilities for agencies to oversee such as road safety. Others may include civil aviation, maritime transport, rail transport and so on. They continue to develop government transportation policy and organize public transit. All while trying to maintain and construct infrastructural projects. Some ministries have additional responsibilities in related policy areas as mentioned above.
