U-Haul Tips

7 posts in this topic

Recommended Posts

Just moved my dad from Saskatoon to Kamloops.....He went to a Uhaul store in Saskatoon and reserved a small 10 ft truck....he left with the impression the truck would be rented there........I went and visited that same store last week, and talked with them to confirm everything.....They then told me that the truck may be at other Saskatoon locations....They would be contacting us a day or two out from the rental date to state where we would be picking up the truck.....Well they did call..and told us the truck was in Melfort!! Little over 1.5 hrs away from Stoon!! And it would be a 15 ft truck......The rate would still be at the 10 ft rate....and they actually took off $200....so that was all fine.....We got to Melfort and the gal there was great! She stated that we were lucky that we only had to travel 1.5 hrs......we could be going almost anywhere in Sask!! When we dropped off the Uhaul truck in Kamloops..we mentioned all that to the gal there, and she admitted that happens often. In fact, she said many people here in the kamloops area had wanted the 15 ft truck.....but ended up with their largest 26ft truck!! Of course Kamloops and Saskatoon are on the smaller side.....just something to keep in mind! Am glad we got the 15 ft truck.....the 10ft is pretty small


Canadians Visiting the USA while undergoing the visa process, my free advice:

1) Always tell the TRUTH. never lie to the POE officer

2) Be confident in ur replies

3) keep ur response short and to the point, don't tell ur life story!!

4) look the POE officer in the eye when speaking to them. They are looking for people lieing and have been trained to find them!

5) Pack light! No job resumes with you

6) Bring ties to Canada (letter from employer when ur expected back at work, lease, etc etc)

7) Always be polite, being rude isn't going to get ya anywhere, and could make things worse!!

8) Have a plan in case u do get denied (be polite) It wont harm ur visa application if ur denied,that is if ur polite and didn't lie! Refer to #1

They moved our trailer request from one side of the bridge to the other in Kelowna. That's not as big a deal as one-and-a-half hours a way but still a pain in the #######.

Still better than the flat tire on the trailer I had for the move from Calgary to Kamloops.

Which brings me to the most important question ... for THE LOVE OF THE GODDESSES, why would your dad move to Kamloops? I've lived there twice and made sure I left twice. What a depressing place.

Ya in larger cities, would have a larger selection/options.......As well it was at the end of the month......the gal in Melfort that we chatted with has been doing this for over 20 yrs......She wished UHaul was more up front in what can happen.....lot of ticked off customers...thinking ur truck is going to be picked up close to you....but not always the case.....

Thanks for the tip. I have a Uhaul booked in Regina for the end of the month to bring my furniture down.

Hopefully it is in Regina!! They did say Uhaul has smartened up and they uses the newer trucks for the 1 way moves....the truck we had was only 2 yrs old
