One Way Truck Rentals
One-way rentals are often not an option in the truck rental business. But with Southern Cross Truck Rentals we can arrange for you to pick up or drop off the truck in most major Australian capital cities.

Save money when you move interstate

Moving interstate is easier and cheaper with a one-way truck or van rental. It’s the ideal solution for when you’re changing home or office over a long distance. Southern Cross Truck Rentals, based in Western Sydney, is one of the few vehicle hire companies to offer this option.

Everyone knows moving house or premises is stressful. There’s a lot to do and so much to organise, but when you take charge of your own trip you will:

  • Save time
  • Save money
  • Save hassle

Interstate truck hire with your car licence

Not many people know that your standard car licence (also called a C-class licence) allows you to legally rent and operate a moving truck large enough to fit an entire houseload of furniture. (Avaliable only for 3T Pantech Models)

We are happy to advise on which moving truck or van in our fleet will best suit your move. The rule of thumb is to choose a vehicle big enough to take all your furniture, boxes and belongings in one go. Generally, a C-class truck can carry enough to fill a 3-bedroom home plus garden shed, while moving van rental suits people living in apartments.
Use our handy Moving Truck Volume Calculator to work out exactly how much space you’ll need.

When you’re on the road

Yes, a moving truck or van is bigger than a car, but they are still very easy to drive. Our one-way rental fleet is made up of trucks and vans that have air-conditioning, power steering and economical diesel engines. A choice of manual and automatic transmissions is available. Whether in the city or on the open road, our vehicles are comfortable and easy to handle.

In the unlikely event of a mechanical breakdown, 24-hour roadside support is only a phone call away.

Save on hassle

A one-way rental gives you greater flexibility. When you’re moving interstate with a dedicated removals company, you pay not just for the truck but also for 2 to 3 staff to journey out and back.

Also, when you drive yourself you also control the schedule. It means dealing with the inevitable delays in packing, travel and unloading doesn’t cost extra. All you have to do is meet the agreed handover conditions. Plus, no one will take better care of your belongings in transit than you will.

So, choose the option where you know the costs upfront and which gives you full control of the when, where and how you move.
