Four stars only because the pricing could be a lot better. Otherwise it is a good company. If they beat the prices of other moving trucks I would recommend!

I used Budget trucks on a couple of moves and had a great experience each time. The price I paid was fair and competitive. The trucks were always clean and safe. I would definitely use them again.

Unfortunately the only experience I had had with budget wasn't a good one. Granted, this was 5 or so years ago but my mother in law passed away and my husband and I had to go from Illinois to Florida to gather her belongings. On the way home we rented a Budget truck. Well, a few hours in, the truck broke down. Instead of getting us another truck we had to wait 9 hours for them to fix it! We had to ride with the tow truck driver, then sit at a diner for hours! It was a miserable experience especially considering why we were there.

Whenever I have had to move I have always rented a truck from budget. The location in Napa, ca has been my go to for years. Thankfully I haven't had to move in 5 years but if i do in the future they will be the ones I use. I also has rented cars from them and always receive great service and pricing.

If I could give a company NEGATIVE stars, I would. We reserved two vehicles to move from one location to a house approximately an hour away. The vehicles each had a specific purpose. When the day came to move, they did not have one of the vehicles, a van, available, and instead tried to offer a 12 ft truck. That did not work for us, because we needed a van to safely carry specific cargo. Due to this issue, we suffered significant loss during our move. ALSO, the charges made to our credit card, were fraudulent, and supposed deposits were not returned as per their policy. It took multiple complaints and a complaint to the BBB to get the charges reversed. I will NEVER use this company again for ANY reason, and I recommend no one else use them either.

I've only used once - it was super cheap and got the job done. It was also in a really convenient location. The office I went to when I picked up my truck was a little slow, but that's really a minor complaint. I used the one way option and it was perfect.

I love Budget Truck! Their service is pretty great, but more importantly they're a great value. Whenever I need to move something they are my go-to. Although they aren't located in as many places as some other companies, it is worth a little bit of an extra drive to get the deal!

I used Budget due to the better rates advertised. However, they held my deposit longer than they were supposed to, and tacked on tons of extra fees that wound up costing more than U-Haul. Customer service was mediocre.

Budget rental trucks have been great for my needs. I have used them with my son and his move to college and the truck was perfect for our needs. The size of the truck was good and the truck was clean and drove perfectly for us as we had to travel hundreds of miles away.

I have used Budget trucks for multiple cross country moves. Their trucks are awesome and always operate as needed. I especially like that their bigger trucks are usually diesel trucks vs gas powered. This provides plenty of power over some of the large hills in the west.

I have used Budget Truck before for moves and they were easy to schedule, the price was reasonable, the truck was big enough to get the job done and easy to drive and I liked the lower loading ramp. Easy to return as well.

Super cheap option, but also misses out on some of the more desired moving features I've been accustomed to. For large hauls wouldn't recommend, but for anything small they're easy on the wallet.

The prices here are great, however the company could do a better job at making sure their trucks are in great condition. When I received my truck it was very dirty. I had to throw out the last customers trash. With Covid-19 on the rise you'd expect them to be more sanitary.

The title of the Company is what wins me over. If you're looking for a great price on a moving truck, and you're on a budget, this is the company to go to. And there's usually a promo code that can be applied on the purchase.

Hands down the lowest price in the area. Every time I reserve a truck there's always one available and the man who runs my local shop is the nicest man on Earth. I wouldn't think of using any other service.

Pretty nice and reliable product and company. Better condition on vessels and vehicles than some rental places. Need to use fragrance free cleaners and methods for keeping vehicles clean, though, as they can be aggravating to health.
