    PODS....kinda high for one unit, but you can get 2-20' units delivered from point A to point B. The quote I got for chicago to dallas was $3100 for one, $3500 for two. Kinda tempting since the Uhaul is $2500 plus the tow bar to pull the K5, plus gas, plus it's 16' shorter and I dont know if all my crap will fit. dammit.

    Don't you mean Budget. Ryder is out of business.

    Be sure to check on vehicle insurance before you rent the truck. Call your insurance company to see if you're covered by your current policy while driving the rental truck. Most policies will cover a standard 4-wheeled van. However, they usually do not cover any vehicle with dual rear wheels. /forums/images/graemlins/angryfire.gif If you don't take the (expensive!) insurance from the rental place and then wreck their truck, you'll be paying off the damages for years... /forums/images/graemlins/yikes.gif

    If the truck is a big block gas powered one, you can expect to get somewhere in the 6-9 MPG range. /forums/images/graemlins/yikes.gif Do the math and you might find it's cheaper to have the crates hauled for you.

    I just reserved a Penske Truck. Their customer service rocks. They have and e-mail team that responds real fast to any questions that you may have and they also keep intouch until your move is through. I just got a packet in the mail from them with a bunch of guides and a how t DVD. Kind of cheesy , but you'd never get any of that from U-Haul.

    Penske is the best. Best prices and nicest trucks. We got a uhaul once to cross over into Canada. Get to the exit before the border and there is no license plate on the truck and it wasn't registered. Called uhaul and they told us to make a license plate out of cardboard. Now that is high quality service.

    Wow did you call NorthAmerican Vanlines, United or Mayflower? For the prices you looking at it might be more convenient for one of them to move you and they do all the work!!! Nothing wrong with calling all 3 and then playing them against each other.

    NorthAmerican charged me $2100 to move me from Okc to Las Vegas. They did the loading and unloading, I did the packing. 14,000lbs.
