Dolly will run about $50-70...

If your going long distance might as well buy a used trailer on Craigs list. The price they quoted me was outrageous.

The trailers are a rip. My friend's gf worked for uhaul. The brake and light connector on the trailer is special so you have to BUY a wiring harness adapter

Every time I've rented a truck it wasn't worth it to get a stand alone trailer. More room and sometimes cheaper with a truck, minus the gas.

This was last year though.

Must be her location I have rented from them dozens of times and never had to use anything but the standard attachment.



Are you moving a car that already runs? Also you can't use the dolly on a rear wheel drive car unless you disconnect the drive shaft.

Nope doesnt run. Its my great uncles 1951 ford 2 door coupe. ITs been in my aunts garage for 25 years. She letting me have it. You can on a standard transmission car. It will ruin an auto tranny flat towing because the fluid is not circulating and it will overheat.

I am moving next week and I rented a truck and a car trailer.
I only have to go about 200 miles and it cost $60 extra for the trailer one way.

I needed an enclosed trailer to haul a load from the Mid-West once. They wanted something like 700$ to rent one way. The local rate was less that $20 a day and the Main Store wouldn't rent for for more than a few days at that rate. I found a local hole in the wall rental place that would do it. They picked up the trailer from the main yard, let me have it for 11 days and the total bill was somewhere around $170.

*DISCLAIMER: I work for an independant U-Haul dealer. Don't consider this a quote.*

The don't normally do that anymore. They have pretty much standardized to the universal 4-way flat connector these days.If you ask, you can probably get a trailer with the normal 4-way plug. If your trucks wiring is messed up, don't expect us to fix it for free. If you dont have the proper adapter, its not our fault.

A local rental for a Auto Transport trailer is $49.95+ optional insurance and tax around here. Thats for one day, 24 hour period. Sometimes renting locally (and returning it to the store you picked it up from) is cheaper than the one way rate. The insurance is by the day... and optional.

One way rates from one place to another will be different. I've seen rates from $70-500 lately, depending upon pickup location and destination. The rates are based on demand and availabiltiy. I'd suggest reserving one ahead of time, if possible. They may or may not have one in stock if you dont reserve it.

Getting it on the trailer might suck unless you have a winch or enough people to push it. I recently used one to move my 30th Anniversary Z28 but it wouldn't start.
