Using the Uncle Bob's Truck
Moving Truck and Van Rental
Why pay the pros when we have a convenient do-it-yourself option? This Uncle Bob's location offers a van or truck you can use for your move! While we reserve our moving vehicles for our new customers moving into storage, we will rent them out for other things when they're not being used. Ask your Uncle Bob's Store Manager for details.
The fine print - isn't that always the case?
We're sorry to bog you down with all the rules, but we know you're likely stressed-out with your move and all, so bear with us while we make sure we're all on the same page:
- Vehicle - Uncle Bob's carries moving trucks AND moving vans. The vehicle varies by store so be sure to check with your store about which is available. Both the trucks and vans are spacious and easy to use.
- Rental Time Slot - Our team at the storage facility will provide you with a rental time slot. You'll need to pick up and return the Uncle Bob's Truck during those hours, or our next customer will be really mad! If you are late, we reserve the right to charge a late return fee and possibly an extra time slot.
- Gasoline - we'll have the gas tank full when you pick it up, all we ask is that you replace what you use before returning it. Remember, re-fueling fees are not your friend!
- Mileage - as with all vehicle rentals, we do charge a mileage fee, but people tell us we're less expensive than most!
- Accidents - nobody likes to think about it, but accidents do happen. If you get into an accident using our truck, you are responsible for any damage. With that said, be sure you review the safety precautions prior driving the truck!
Documents you'll need prior to renting the moving truck
Rules are rules, and Uncle Bob's takes them seriously! We can only rent to licensed drivers over the age of 21. The driver of the truck will need bring the following documents to complete the rental agreement:
- A current driver's license (sorry, a learner's permit won't cut it!)
- A valid insurance card in your name. If you don't have insurance, or cannot produce an insurance card, you'll need to take our Collision Damage Coverage at a nominal additional cost.
- A deposit by credit card or cash - please contact us for details.
