The trip was successful. We managed to get the freezer out of my parents basement, into the truck and eventually into my basement. The worst was pulling it out of my parents basement but dragging it around the back of my house wasn’t that easy either. However I’m extremely happy I have a walk out basement. We also brought down a queen sized mattress and box-spring along with some wood I bought yesterday at Lowe’s.
The Budget truck worked out great. I had a 10′ truck reserved but all they had was a 15′ truck this morning. They didn’t charge me any extra so it was fine with me. The entire experience was so much better than my previous experiences with uhaul that I would never use uhaul again.
