[ rants - uhaul ]
|So when I moved into my new apartment (which happened to be 50 feet from my old apartment, but two weeks later...)
My roommate and I needed a big truck to move desks, boxes, a bed and a basket of her vinegar-y shoes. Called around multiple locations
and determined that U-Haul would be the most college-friendly (translation: easy on the wallet). Long story short, we ended up NOT renting from U-Haul and
just cramming everything into an SUV (much in the manner that I cram my thighs into jeans).
After repeatedly asking U-Haul whether I would be charged on my credit card and being told "no", I opened this month's Mastercard (cheers to Mastercard, who after I missed one payment, decided to double my credit limit, but I digress...) to find a $50 charge from U-Suck (give me a break, I just finished finals and am missing the brain cells necessary to come up with some creative pseudonym).
Looking back on the whole ordeal, there were many signs (that I readily ignored) that I was dealing with a shady company, so I can only say that I brought this upon myself. Here are the warning signs, so you will not also fall prey to their scam and find yourself home alone on a Friday night curled up in the fetal position, lamenting about U-Haul, and rocking yourself to sleep. Whoops, I've said to much. Anyways...
10 Signs I Should Have Known U-Haul Sucks
|Lesson to be learned - U-HAUL sucks. Use Ryder, Budget, your friend's truck, or strap the furniture
on your back and drag it across 3 counties if you have to, but never, ever rent U-Haul!|
