Please think about this rationally.

You can either hire a moving company to move all your things across the country, which of course is more expensive, but also is perfectly normal, people do it all the time.


or, you can drive the truck yourself, and trust me, you CAN do it. just take it one step at a time.

Tell them you never drove one before, say you want to drive it around for 5 minutes with them in the passenger seat, and have them "coach" you on what to do ...

it is possible, just a matter of checking your mirriors more, and turning different.

This is good advice. BUT, if you are like some people and don't like to drive or are afraid to drive even a car, don't do this. I love to drive and am pretty fearless on the road. I drove a rather large U-Haul before, but my last move would have me pulling my car. I've never pulled anything before and I wasn't about to have my first attempt be through the mountains, so I hired someone.

All I'm saying is, Know your limitations.

They definitely have packing, loading, and unloading help. But I have never seen any driving help listed on their pages.
