    Thinking about renting a truck occasionally to make deliveries that I don’t have time to do with the semi. Non Hazmat. One day rental per week, at most.

    I know I’ll need a driver qualification file, log book, med card, etc. no CDL, so no drug consortium or clearinghouse.

    So far, so good.

    How do I deal with the truck paperwork? Annual inspection, maintenance records, pre / post trip inspection? Triangles, fire extinguisher? Magnetic sign with DOT# and name on the doors?

    Since we’re dealing with Arizona and over 10K, trip permits or?

    What else am I missing?

    Rental, they take care of it. A Ryder or Penske truck is ready to go with their DOT numbers on it. Just keep the rental contract in the vehicle.

    I'm not sure you even have to have a medical card and driver file for that driver.

    The semi’s, yes, but not their under 26K “household goods” type vehicles.

    There are still a few $89/day, unlimited miles, “local” rental deals to be found for smaller trucks.
