Truck rental insurance?

I am renting a 16' moving truck and moving across the US. I don't have car insurance. What are my insurance needs?

I don't have car insurance because neither my wife nor I own a car. Although I plan on paying with a VISA card I don't think the card's CDW covers trucks
. Budget (the rental company) offers a variety of protection plans
but I am not sure in my case which are prudent and which are a waste. I believe on my last move it was about $150 for a Limited Damage Waiver and I would like to spend less than that this time around.
I would like to be protected if someone hits me or if I hit someone else. I believe the contents of the truck are covered by our renters insurance policy already.
I've read a bit about non-owner car insurance policies, could I get something like that for a month and be covered? Is the LDW
If this sort of question is best asked to our renters insurance agent, what should I know going in?
