Our roots are strong in the Northwest Indiana and Chicagoland region! The Marcus/Allard Truck Rental team began in 1958 with a Highland location and continued in 1995 with the merger of our two sides: Marcus and Allard. We continue to stay connected to the community through service and impactful activity and connections. Our fleet of rental trucks and vans can accommodate all types of events, projects and moves. Most of our vehicles are the current model year and have features such as rear heat and air conditioning and hitches to help haul your load.
As a business owner, you may have a special event once a year – whether that is a holiday celebration or customer appreciation event. Both of these types of events would definitely benefit from a vehicle to transport supplies to and from your event space. For instance, a customer celebration event may need chairs, tableware, giveaway gifts and decorations taken from your offices to your event space. A cargo van can help, especially during inclement weather where you do not want to tuck items into a truck bed.
Our vans have up to 149 cubic feet of storage and up to 1,515 pounds payload. Our team also has passenger vans available for renting. We have passenger vans for either 12 or 15 individuals and with extended height available. Passenger vans can help if you and your workers, church group or family are ready to pile in together for an exciting excursion to a special event.
Beyond vans, our Marcus/Allard crew can also assist you with renting trucks as part of our fleet offerings. We have a mix of trucks that can fit a variety of events and home improvement projects. Our crew cab pickup truck can fit up to five passengers and 2,500 pounds payload with a towing capacity up to 12,000 pounds. Our extended cab pickup has similar amenities and you can select a short or long bed. While our 4×4 pickup truck has less room inside for people, it does have a towing capacity up to 14,000 pounds to haul even more. Outside of a typical pickup truck, we can also rent out a box truck and stake truck. Box trucks have a lot of room in the back for stuff and a lift-gate. A box truck can be a great vessel to move a small home or apartment. A stake truck is available in sizes that are anywhere from 12 feet to 22 feet long and they all have lift-gates.
We are ready to talk to you today about your van or truck rental! All drivers need to be at least 21 years old and have a valid driver’s license. Reach out to us through our online contact form.
