Some points about renting tow dollies from U-Haul
(for more complete information, please visit U-Haul’s website here.]
There are many reasons to rent a tow dolly from U-Haul. One of the main reasons many people choose to rent from U-Hual is the amount of locations throughout the United States. U-Haul has hundreds and hundreds of rental locations, so it’s likely that wherever you are in the US, there will be a rental location close to you. This not only means added convenience when renting a tow dolly, but also means that chances are there will be a U-Haul location for you to drop off the equipment upon your arrival. Also, because U-Haul is such a large company, there is a good chance that any piece of equipment you are looking for will be in stock at a location near you.
There are, however, some things to keep in mind when renting tow dollies from U-Haul:
Some people believe that U-Haul has unsafe towing policies. For example, other companies that rent tow equipment require that tow dollies only be used with larger vehicles. This is to prevent “trailer-sway” and lessen the chance of a towing vehicle fishtailing or overturning. U-Haul, however, allows passenger vehicles to attach tow dollies. It’s important to be aware of these types of safety concerns.
One other major drawback to U-Haul is that many smaller U-Haul locations around the country are operated by “independent dealers.” These locations could be anything from gas stations and general equipment rental shops, to storage facilities. Sometimes independent dealers could be operated by a home businessperson where there may only be one person around to assist you in rental / dropping off of equipment, so scheduling a rental or equipment drop-off could be troublesome. It also means that sometimes its possible that the independent dealer may not be thoroughly trained in equipment inspection and hookup.
Overall, U-Haul is a reputable company that provides a valuable service to its customers. Few companies have the amount of rental locations around the country that U-Haul does, and most of the time, this provides for unparalleled convenience.
