I have looking at prices to rent of these to bring down my things to charlotte. In the last month they have gone up 300$ what is the deal? Do they always changed prices this rapidly?

They want 962$ for the 6X12 from NY. How much did anyone else pay?

Thanks

You can buy one for about 1500 and sell it locally. They don't depreciate.

I just rented a 22 foot truck for $125 (one way), right now the in to Charlotte rates are high, while the out of charlotte rates are low. I think with the universities starting classes may have an effect on the spike in prices this time of year.

We spent double on the gas for the 22 foot truck though.

I bought a 6x12 enclosed trailer back when I had some hauling to do to NC from FL. I bought it used for $1300, used it twice to transfer stuff, and sold it when I got back INSTANTLY for $1200 cash. I never even titled it because I sold it so darn fast!

Definetly buy one new/used and turn around and sell it once ur done, would be tremendously cheaper!

I recently rented a 6x12 trailer on two occasions locally about two months apart. We were closing on our home so I had to put things in storage. Both times it was $29.95.

Just go ahead & buy yourself a used trailer or a van. Whatever fits your needs. At least when you get down here, you can sell it again & recoup most your money. Or keep it & have it to use again, odd jobs, etc.

We were able to get an old Chevy 3/4 ton van for $600 that had a nearly new motor in it & runs like a champ. Even at 10-12 mpg & incl insurance, it was significantly cheaper than a UHaul. And it's still running strong!

It is nearly twice as much to take them south than it is to take them north. When I rented mine 2 weeks ago, I had to drive over an hour to pick them up. I was told that they are so scarce in the Northern states, that UHaul actually had to send reps down to the Southern states to bring them back up north. That is why you have to pay extra $$$ to take them from the North to the South.

It was cheaper or about the same price for me to hire a mover to move me from NC to Colorado then get a Uhaul. Plus I won't have to load & unload the truck
