Moving is always a stressful situation. Especially if you're on a time crunch and need to move out asap.
I notice a trend where uHaul customers just walk in during the weekend without any prior reservations, hoping to take out a truck for an urgent move. However, our trucks and I would assume, every other dealer's trucks, have all been taken out by customers with the foresight to schedule a rental truck days in advance.
Walk-in customers have to either; settle for whatever vehicle is available on our lot, drive to another location, usually a uHaul center a few miles aways, or somehow reschedule their moving date.
For customers who end up rescheduling their moves for a later date, they ask what day they should call us to schedule a rental to make sure they secure a truck and our response is to call a minimum of 2 Days in advance.
Why 2 Days Minimum?
So I recommend call at least 2 days ahead of your move for these reasons below:
