How much does Enterprise cost?
In general, moving truck rental prices include a daily rate to rent a truck plus a small fee for every mile you drive.
Depending on the Enterprise location, we’ve seen truck rental rates vary anywhere from $89 to $475 per day and price-per-mile range from $0.20 to $0.69.
Because of this, you'll want to factor in the distance you're driving. While some companies include mileage estimates in their quotes, Enterprise doesn’t—you’ll have to pull up your phone’s calculator and calculate the mileage cost yourself.
To get an idea of how much renting a truck with Enterprise would cost, we crunched the numbers on a 60-mile move with a 24-foot box truck over two days. For our quote, we went with the bare minimum plan and didn’t include any insurance.
Here’s what we found:

We’ve seen cheaper prices from some of Enterprise’s competitors, but some of these companies are notorious for slapping last-minute fees on your bill.
Enterprise, on the other hand, doesn’t have a reputation for hidden fees. So even if its rates seem steep, there’s a chance you’ll pay more with another company solely due to surprise fees.
Enterprise scores major points for not making you call to get a quote. Instead, all you need to do is enter some basic information online:
- Your move dates (pickup and return)
- The type of truck you want to rent
- Your starting location and final destination
- The renter’s age (must be at least 21)
While you’ll probably need to call your location to nail down your reservation, having online quotes available at the ready is peak convenience—especially if you’re shopping around.
What protection plans does Enterprise offer?
Enterprise offers four types of coverage on its rentals: damage waiver, personal accident insurance, roadside protection, and supplemental liability protection.
The cost is based on set rates per day. So the total cost of your protection plan will depend on the coverage you choose plus the number of days you rent your truck.
There’s really no cut-and-dried price for each protection plan because—like we’ve said before—it’ll all depend on the location you’re working with.
That said, your online quote can give you an idea of how much insurance coverage will cost. For our move, supplemental liability protection was an additional $25.99 per day.
Here’s the breakdown of Enterprise’s protection plans:
This waives or reduces any loss or damage that happens to the rental truck. The fine print is vague about how much is covered, which is another reason to call your Enterprise location directly.
Personal accident insurance
This option covers any medical expenses that could crop up if the renter is injured while driving the truck (or if there’s an accidental death).
Roadside protection (24/7)
This covers jumpstarts, lockout services, lost key replacement, flat tire changes, and fuel deliveries. So if you’re stranded on the side of the highway in the middle of the night, you won’t have to call your friend with an IOU—Enterprise will send someone your way.
Supplemental liability protection
As the most comprehensive plan on the list, supplemental liability covers up to $1,000,000 for any third-party liability claims (e.g., if you cause an accident and need to cover the other party’s expenses).
Enterprise typically requires renters to be at least 21 years old. There are a couple notable exceptions. First, you only have to be 18 if you live in New York or Michigan (although it costs extra). Second, Enterprise suggests other exceptions can be made if you're under 21 but doesn't go into detail. We recommend you give the company a call to see if your situation applies.
