I got a rock. Lots of rocks, actually.

So! We bought a house, and it has a yard, and some of the beds are lined with 6-8 inch (15-20" cm) field stone. I would like more, and a friend says she has a lot more that I can have for free! Her land is about an hour from my place. We own cars, not trucks. How do I get the rocks from there to here?

Ok, here are all the relevant details I can think of:
The rocks are field stone, so they will be heavy. Maybe 10-20 lb each?
I don't know how many there are. It's "a pile". I'll take as many as I can without damaging the vehicle.
I need to move them this weekend (she is getting ready to sell the place and doesn't want difficulties with any buyers).
I own a car, she owns a car, we need a truck.
I am going to call Lowe's and Home Depot to see if I can rent a truck from them. I don't want to rent a "nice" truck because I don't want to worry about damages.
I have checked with all our friends who own trucks, and two aren't working (they're old trucks) and the other friend will be out of town.
If I can't rent a truck, do you think I could move them in a small UHaul type truck?
I live in a fairly urban area so I have options.
I am based in the U.S.
What are my options? Google isn't much help, but maybe it's just fail on my part. Thanks for your help!
