U-HAUL Anyone who has ever used them will know... they gave us the most miserable, old, decaying truck on the lot. Defective standard gear shift, no air conditioning, and spaghetti wiring- fun in heavy traffic. It broke down for hours just outside Cornwall, miraculously restarted, then again twice more. It finally died - total electrical failure- at 2 AM near Trenton. "Action" towing hauled it to a Trenton garage, where it was repaired the following day. We had to pay $150. for 5 hours sleep in a crappy room in a substandard hotel. UHAUL wouldn't pay the taxi to get us there, though they eventually repaid the hotel. What should have been a 6 hour or so trip from Montreal to Toronto ended up taking 2 days. We arrived in Toronto right at the beginning of Caribana and here we had luck- we found a parking spot nevertheless. (Small miracles) BUT we'd lost our hired help as we were 1 day late late in arriving, and my boyfriend ended up carrying most of it up 3 flights alone.
So, U-Haul gave us $50. in VIP certificates as compensation, instead of reimbursing us for the rental. They even tried to charge us for the extra day! The certificate reads- We appreciate your business... and assumes there will be a "next" rental or purchase. HA! Canada's Moving Adventure. How apt.
If you are planning on renting from UHAUL nevertheless, we will sell you or trade these vouchers! Make us an offer! They're good until 09/06 and transferable.
