How much does it cost to hire a truck?

There are three main costs associated with hiring a truck that are standard across the hire truck industry. These are daily hire rate, excess reduction & milage/kilometre charges.

Daily Hire Rate

The daily hire rate refers to the cost of hiring the truck itself for a 24 hour period. Typically the daily hire rate is more expensive in the weekends and lower mid-week - this is because there is significantly more demand for truck hire on the weekends than during the week.

For u-save, you can see our base daily rental prices for truck hire are listed above, however please note these are subject to change. Our truck hire rates are generally higher than the prices listed in the weekends (depending on demand for that specific weekend. If you book with us midweek, you'll enjoy a 15% discount on the rates above!

Excess Reduction

All truck hire providers will offer a base level of insurance which limits your liability for damage caused to the truck during your hire period to a set amount.  You may additionally opt to reduce your excess buy paying for excess reduction cover.

At u-save, we offer two excess reduction options. For an additional $65 per day, your excess can be reduced to $0 (vs $3,500) with no security bond required. Alternatively, you can reduce your liability to $500 ($500 security bond required) for an additional $45 per day. 

Kilometre Charges

All truck hire providers also charge a fee per kilometre to help cover the Road User Charges & maintenance required for trucks. 

At u-save, our kilometre charges differ depending on the size of the truck you hire - you can review these charges above.

Truck Hire FAQs

Can I hire a truck for half a day?

I don't know

Can I hire a truck for business use?

Absolutely, we offer hire truck to business customers. If you are using the truck as a one-off - please ensure that a credit card in the name of the hirer is provided, otherwise we will not be able to provide the truck.

For repeat use business customers, contact our team to set up a business account with us. This will make hiring the truck repeatedly a breeze for your team, with no credit card required and invoice payment.

Do you offer one way truck hire?

Yes we offer one-way truck hire between any of our depots. Please note, additional charges may apply for one-way hires.

If you are moving from Auckland to Christchurch, or Auckland to Queenstown, you can easily hire a truck and get yourself down to the South Island. Our vehicles are insured for ferry travel so cross island travel is not a problem. Hiring one of our trucks and moving yourself is significantly cheaper than hiring a moving company to facilitate this for you.

Similarly, if you are moving from Queenstown or Christchurch to Auckland, our one way truck hire is an option for you. We often offer specials for one way hire from Christchurch to Auckland, so keep an eye on our specials page!

What is the benefit of hiring a truck with a tail lift?

A tail lift is a mechanised device that can lift very heavy items from the ground to the truck's storage area.

Hiring a truck with a tail lift is highly recommended if you are moving heavy items as the truck's storage areas can be at an awkward height for lifting. Using the tail lift, loading heavy items into the trucks storage area will be significantly easier on you and your back!
