# Anyone know how much it might cost to drive a U-haul truck from Toronto to Vancouver?

For the truck, gas, etc alone (i have food and accommodations figured out already) Approximate guesses are fine. I'm planning this move next summer but have absolutely no idea how much to save up for this part of the planning

Update:

Also, my preferred route is through Canada

For a ten day rental that includes 5194km :

a 10 foot U-haul truck = \$3800 (approximate)

a 14 foot U-haul truck = \$3900 (approximate)

a 17 foot U-haul truck = \$4100 (approximate)

a 20 foot U-haul truck = \$4700 (approximate)

a 26 foot U-haul truck = \$5000 (approximate)

The route through Canada is approximately 4500km.

And the U-Haul web site has the mileage rates in miles per gallon for each vehicle type, so I had to convert them into kilometers per litre.

A 10 foot truck gets about 19.31km/litre which should require about 233 litres of gas.

At Toronto's current average of 131.56 cents/litre, the gas cost = \$307 (approximate).

A 14 foot truck gets about 16.09km/litre which should require about 280 litres of gas.

At Toronto's current average of 131.56 cents/litre, the gas cost = \$368 (approximate).

A 17 foot truck gets about 16.09km/litre which should require about 280 litres of gas.

At Toronto's current average of 131.56 cents/litre, the gas cost = \$368 (approximate).

A 20 foot truck gets about 16.09km/litre which should require about 280 litres of gas.

At Toronto's current average of 131.56 cents/litre, the gas cost = \$368 (approximate).

A 26 foot truck gets about 14.48km/litre which should require about 311 litres of gas.

At Toronto's current average of 131.56 cents/litre, the gas cost = \$409 (approximate).

Safemove insurance covers damage and theft of U-Haul trucks, damage to your belongings and includes medical/life protection for you and your passenger.= \$188

Who knows what the gas prices will be next summer? Also, I did not include taxes in any of my calculations.

What size truck/ makes a huge difference. do as suggested and look at their site for the info...or call them. Guesses are likely to be way wrong.
