- 17-foot: three-bedroom apartments or houses

If you are only moving a couch, the smallest moving truck or van shoud accomodate your needs. Ask the truck rental representative what their options are and which truck would be best for your move.
How much does a rental truck cost?
The cost of your rental truck depends on several factors. Most truck rental companies will charge a flat rate based on the size truck you need, then charge an additional fee for every mile traveled during the move. You may also be charged a per diem rate for each day you have the truck. You'll also be responsible for refilling the gas tank to required fuel levels, purchasing insurance and may have to pay rental tax and other fees. When speaking with an agency representative about your quote, ask detailed questions about the pricing and extra fees to receive the most accurate estimate possible.
