Most of us do not have a large vehicle or have access to one. That is where a box truck rental comes into play to help you with your personal or professional move or your big event. Our team at Marcus Allard Truck Rental has roots in the region since 1958. Our company is a merger of two long-standing businesses in the rental industry. Marcus Auto Lease Corporation was at our Highland location from the beginning leasing out vehicles. We took on Allard Truck Rental in 1995. This business was part of the steel and petroleum industries, helping with their truck rental needs. We now serve all of our friends and neighbors in the Chicagoland and Northwest Indiana region.
Our box truck rentals are an enclosed space that can hold belongings or supplies. We have two sizes of box trucks as part of our fleet: 14 feet and 16 feet. On the larger sized box truck, there is a lift gate, which is helpful when you need to load and unload heavy or awkward items. A box truck can ease your concern if weather is a factor during your trip. There is a lot of space to stack up your stuff in the back and room for three people to ride along in the cab. While you could not move a large house with a box truck, you could move stuff out of an apartment or smaller home. A box truck can also come in handy when you are hosting a special event, such as a graduation party, and you need to get tables, chairs, food and more to a different location.
If you need a different space to move stuff, you can rent one of our pickup trucks in a mix of sizes and types. We have available on our lot: F-150 pickup trucks, F-250 pickup trucks, 4×4 pickup trucks, extended cab pickup trucks and crew cab pickup trucks. These have varied benefits, and our team can discuss which option is best for you depending on what you are doing. We also have stake trucks in sizes from 12 feet to 22 feet and all of these have lift gates. Finally, our passenger vans are useful when you want to take a road trip with a large group. A passenger van rental allows you to all travel together and enjoy the trip.
We keep our fleet updated with newer models and maintain them, so they are good to go when you are. A driver needs to have a valid driver’s license and be at least 21 years old. For an additional charge, you can add another driver to your agreement.
