Columbus Ohio Cargo Van Rental

Looking to Rent a Cargo Van in Columbus, OH?

A cargo van can be very useful to help move items across town or country? We’ve got you covered with over 20 rental locations in Columbus.

Columbus is an interesting place. It’s Ohio’s second largest city, with some of its biggest attractions: the Ohio State Fair, the Columbus Zoo and Aquarium, The Ohio Stadium.

That’s not even including Ohio’s sports teams, which include two professional sports teams with The Columbus Blue Jackets and the Columbus Crew of Major League Soccer, as well as Ohio State University’s Buckeyes.

You’d probably do best to avoid these major attractions when planning a move, because they’re big enough to really slow down traffic.

Why Rent a Cargo Van? 

When it comes to moving things, cargo vans are a happy medium between moving trucks and a car.

Moving trucks can be expensive. They can be loud, unwieldy, and just too big for your purposes. A car, on the other hand, will rarely fit everything you need to move somewhere.

They’re smaller, cheaper, and easier to maneuver, but they just can’t always get the job done.

Typically, cargo van rentals cost $35 per day. However, there are all sorts of factors that can change that price, for better or worse: coupon codes, unlimited miles, one-way rental, etc. We cover some of the most common types of rentals in the next section.

Types of Rentals 

Depending on your plans, there are two special types of rental that you can get: one way rental and unlimited miles.

If you’re traveling a long distance, there’s a pretty decent chance you’ll want a one way rental. Moving is stressful enough. Driving a cargo van across the country twice? It’s just unappealing.

One way rental allows you to take a cargo van from one dealership and bring it to another. If you’re looking for a one way rental, your best bet is to go with a big brand, since they tend to have the largest number of dealerships.

Unlimited miles is also worth considering if you’re traveling a long distance. Regular rentals give you a certain amount of miles per day for free, then add an extra fee for every mile that goes over that amount.

If you’re going to be traveling hundreds of miles, unlimited miles may very well be the best way to go.

Types of Vans 

There are three different types of vans you might be looking for.

A normal cargo van is a full-size van with room in the back for moving goods. A panel van differentiates itself by not having windows in the back. There are also passenger vans, which transport passengers instead of cargo.

Passenger vans come in several sizes, based on how many passengers you’re potentially transporting. Popular sizes are the 12 passenger van and 15 passenger van.
