The value and cost of renting a cargo van depends on several factors, including the distance and duration of the rental, along with the return location. Companies such as Enterprise, U-Haul, Avis, Sixt and Penske offer cargo van rentals with promotions and discounts that also affect price.
One of the biggest factors affecting the price of renting a cargo van is the distance traveled. Most companies charge drivers per mile for long-distance trips. Some companies, such as Penske, offer unlimited miles on one-way trips, as of April 2015. This means that the van must be returned to a location in a different city to qualify.
