Cost and Affordability

Renters must be 16 years old to rent trailers and 18 years old to rent trucks and both require a U.S. driver’s license. A credit or debit card is typically needed for renting a vehicle; however, the rental may be paid for in cash at the drop-off location. Most locations will rent to those without a major credit card for local rentals, but at least a $100 cash deposit is required.
