3 Ways to Use a Rental Truck or Van Before the End of Summer

July 23, 2019, 1:34

As summer comes to a close, now’s the perfect time to get in all of those last minute to-dos before fall settles in, temperatures cool, and you prepare for another long, cold Indiana or Illinois winter. Fortunately, the weather is still nice right now, and there are plenty of things to do to bid farewell to the summer season. Here are three ways to use a rental truck or rental van before the days begin to shorten again:

1) Plan a Big Family Outing or Group Event

When was the last time you got the whole family together–grandma, grandpa, and extended relatives included–for a big get-together? Or how about all of your closest friends, even the ones who you hardly keep up with anymore? Before summer’s over, why not plan a big family outing or group event, such as a field day or picnic, or even a trip to a location that you know everyone will enjoy? To help with the logistics, consider a passenger rental van from Marcus/Allard Truck Rental – our vans can seat up to 15 passengers!

2) Go Camping

Spending time in the great outdoors under the stars and open sky is one of the best ways to get in touch with yourself, reset, and prepare for the change of seasons. (A camping trip could even double as your big family outing.) In order to get you and all of your gear where you need to go, including any bikes or motorized equipment (four-wheelers, anyone?) that you plan to take, consider renting a 4×4 pickup truck, which is great off-road and has the hauling capacity you need. 

3) Take a Road Trip Somewhere New 

Finally, before summer’s over, why not take a weekend–or longer–to take a road trip somewhere new that you’ve always wanted to go but haven’t? Our passenger vans are perfect for such outings, especially if you want to bring the family – with a rental van, you’ll have more room for everyone, increasing comfort during the drive.
