What do you need to move and to where? Storage places have them sometimes and are usually a lot cheaper then U-haul, especially if you are a customer or new customer.

i've rented twice with U-Haul and didn't have any troubles. Priced Penske and they were really expensive. At least 50% higher than U-Haul. I have a friend that rents from them (Penske) all the time and loves them but I couldn't justify the extra cost.

Hey stranger.

I'm moving to Gulf Breeze, Fl. Moving the entire house. Uhaul won't rent a trailer to me because they don't like truck apparently. I enter my truck on the website, and it says don rent to that truck type.

WOW! My experience has been just the opposite. Not only was U-Haul a lot more expensive, the trucks were a piece of crap. I would not drive them across the lot, much less across town.

Word I got, one flipped while towing a U-Haul. The people won in court and from then on, a ban by U-Haul.

WHy don't you just rent a moving truck from them and make get someone to drive your car? Pensacola isn't that far.

Yea, I'm thinking of that. My wife will be driving her vehicle back with my 8 month old son.

I guess I could drive someone back, but then back to Pensacola with my son riding by himself in the back seat for four hours is not going to cut it. He HATES it back there by himself.

So I don't know.

hmmm...that makes sense now. Well guess that clears that up.

My wife has a Honda passport with no hitch and no where to put one.

Or rent a truck and pull your vehicle behind it.

I don't want to do this, but it's looking like my only option.

Visions of my car going by me on the interstate with no one driving it would def. make this a hard option to go with. I guess we are dad's and shite now so doing this type of stuff is expected.

I have a deal for you. Find out what it costs to rent a truck for Pensacola trip (I think they charge like .69 a mile). Then rent the trailer. Give me 1/2 of what the Truck rental would have been to cover my costs. I will hook up my truck to your trailer rental and drive to Pensacola on a Saturday.

Problem solved.

Seriously.
