I initially reserved with Budget, but they called at the last minute (after the movers were paid!) and left a message saying they had no trucks. At the same time, they did not cancel reservation, which means I was liable for the rental charges. Budget did not return call and was totally unprofessional. It seems you can not count on Budget. U Haul was great, on the other hand.
POD delivery and purchase order very expedient and well handled. Website grossly underestimated POD needs (16 ft) - recommend a mover visit site for more accurate need assessment in future! Pickup delayed several days due to miscommunication and truck problems but handled very smoothly when accomplished. Price very reasonable and would use again. POD is excellent condition (only 1 exterior ding). All service personnel most polite and professional
Penske service was professional and great. The staff explained everything about the 26-foot truck, which was brand new by the way with only 1500 miles on it, and helped me connect the car hauler and load my car onto it when I was ready to leave town. The truck's ride was smooth and even had a Bluetooth-enabled radio which made the ride much easier for hearing my GPS and phone calls on the road.
Price was fantastic, truck was perfect. Highly recommend calling ahead to confirm date, time and details of pickup. Location we used advertised that they were open at 8:30am and they did not open until 9am. They also did not have the moving blankets we requested. I would use them again yet I would call to confirm all the details
The truck has seen better days. We received the truck below "E" and had to find the nearest diesel gas station for a 26' truck, which wasn't as easy as you would think. Was the truck as nice as a competitor truck? No, it had tape all in the side covering or holding broken parts and feared the engine was pieced together the same way. Did the truck serve its purpose? yes it did. The truck got our items moved from point A to point B without any issues and we did save $500 by using budget opposed to a competitor. Was it worth using Budget? You decide.
Freight company worked hard to accommodate my city ordinance issue; drivers at both locations were extremely personable, polite, and helpful. Scheduling the delivery was simple and again company was patient and professional while I sorted through financial snag. Would recommend for long distance move. Consider using an experienced loading crew.
