An antique u-haul is definitely not something to love…

I vote Penske w/AAA discount.

ME TOO!!! THANKS EVERYONE, for all the feedback! I went to the u-haul location that I would be getting the truck from & was shocked. The smaller trucks were all brand new, but the larger ones....they all looked ancient. You're right about the bald tires...they all looked like they were ready to blow at any moment.

I made my online reservation with PENSKE. I got a larger truck, with unlimited milage, for less money than a smaller u-haul would have been.

I was somewhat inspired by this thread and decided to give Penske a call. Very friendly person on the phone here locally. I was thinking I could save a few bucks over my MoveEx quote of $2400 for a 24' truck, someone to drive, gas, tolls paid, etc. I have to arrange for loaders/unloaders on both ends. I was a little shocked when they told me to move from Boston to Charlotte would be like $2100- and that was the good rate. If I move at end of the month beginning of sept. it goes up like $300-$400. And then still have to pay gas!

Oh well...I think I've squeeked as much out of the actually delivery part as possible.

This same question was on another board that I visit and horror stories of U-Haul were numerous. You might ask if there are day laborers loitering at the local Home Depot. It has been reported that this is becoming a regular thing in the larger cities.

HAHAHAHA sorry but the fellow writing about the brake lights and the Rocky Mountains was too much!

What does it cost to rent one of these trucks and drive to NC from Fla? Is it much of a discount from just hiring someone to do it???

I think if you type in U-haul reviews on Google, there is a website just for U-haul horror stories.

My friend moved from NJ to FL and theirs broke down, had to wait hours to get it fixed.
When we moved from Boca to Naples FL we made reservations for a truck online for Uhaul. NEVER do that! The day we needed the truck, and many people drove far to help us, it turned out there are not enough trucks for everyone, so our reservation for a truck meant nothing!! After a horrible day of trying to entertain people and wondering if we would even move, we got a truck at 6:00 p.m!!
Then, as we went to unload, the truck broke down on the street and someone who spoke NO English fixed it...then Uhaul charged us for 8 extra miles???? Never again!!!
