Uhaul Rental
« on: August 24, 2012, 12:10:18 AM »
Anyone have experience renting a moving truck? They say you only need to be 18 on their site to rent but is there an underage fee with that and does that apply in all locations (budget says it depends on location)? Any info you guys have will be helpful. Thanks

I think Budget is cheaper with the discount codes.

I'm not sure about the age thing, but I recently priced out a rental and found Penske to be a few hundred dollars cheaper than uhaul. (Budget was somewhere in between, closer to uhaul)

Use Budget coupon codes, and get Uhaul to match Budget's price, or Budget to match Uhaul's price.

I`ve rented trucks from Uhaul a few times. They are ok so to speak, but there are better companies out there I think.

In my research the only company that would guarantee a reservation was Penske.

Penske is the greatest, they guarantee the reservation and have nice new trucks.
They'll price match as well.
Get them to price match and say you do not have the AAA discount. After they match call up and say you have AAA. It'll put down the rate even more.

They wouldn't match u-haul.

The Best Truck Rental Services of 2015 | Top Ten Reviews

Looks like in this article Uhaul is on 3rd spot behind Budget Rental and Penske, but according to the reviews, there aren`t big differences between them ...if you look at the numbers I mean.
