Chloe and Aaron Gawrych moved from Bluffdale, Utah, to Rio Rancho, New Mexico, in February 2020.
Unfortunately, scheduling hangups with home inspections and closing dates meant their move was a little convoluted. They gave notice they were moving out of their old home before the new one was available, so they couldn’t move into the new home for about two weeks after moving out.
To solve this problem, the Gawrychs rented a U-Haul truck, packed it up, drove it to New Mexico, unloaded it into a U-Haul storage unit, and rented another U-Haul truck a few weeks later to take everything to their new home.
The Gawrychs considered several different companies and requested multiple quotes before they signed a rental contract.
They ultimately went with U-Haul for three very important reasons:
- It gave them the best prices.
- It has the most truck sizes to choose from.
- It worked for the size of their property.
While Penske and Budget (two companies the Gawrychs considered) have several truck sizes each, U-Haul has more than both of them. This means that U-Haul customers can get a truck with just enough space without paying for any extra room. This put U-Haul at the front of the pack, and its competitive rates sealed the deal.
The Gawrychs also seriously considered PODS because a moving container might have made their move more convenient. If you need storage between your move-out and move-in dates, it’s easier to move with a moving container. However, you need a place to put your container outside your home while you pack it, which the Gawrychs didn’t have.
All of these factors made U-Haul the best option for the Gawrychs’ situation.
