truck rental

4 posts in this topic

I will be renting a Budget rental moving truck in June from Indiana to MN. Website says a four day rental and I only need it for two. I called a local Budget office to ask if there will be a pro-rated price if the truck is returned less than the four day rental and they said no. What's up with that? Does this sound right? Anyone have any experience with this sort of thing?

Try also Penske Rental or Uhaul for 1 way rentals.

Did you try calling shop directly ? I think the web site automatically quotes 4 days time lenght to move to MN, unload and return it.

Can you rent it by the day ? Also have you quoted local renting with mileage ?

Just take your time driving and use up the four days.

If it's going to cost too much, look for a beater enclosed trailer, buy it for $1500 or less, and use that. Then when you're done moving, sell it for $1000 +/-.

I had a couple approach me once, was wondering if my trailer was for sale. I'm the type of guy that anything is for sale for the right price.

I had a 1997 Classic 24' enclosed trailer that I'd paid about $5500 for new, in '97. It had roughly 75-80k miles on it, it had been used for lawn care for 7 years. It was getting tough looking on the inside. Outside, all the metal was fine, except for a gash of 5" on one side.

Anyways, I said sure, $4,000. They then asked if they could have it by the following weekend. shocked.gif

Anyways, long story short, it was going to cost them about $2500 to move everything they needed to move to Arizona. Renting a U-Haul, with a trailer, it was still going to take 2 trips.

With my trailer, they could fit everything in one trip, and then they planned on selling the the trailer for $2000-3000 once they got to Arizona.

Look around, there's TONS of guys that have bought enclosed trailers lately, either getting into some sort of business that didn't work out, or just for personal use that they decide they don't need anymore.

If you've got a little time yet, maybe you could find one cheap enough that you could buy, then dump for about the same money once you get to IN???

I will say though, IN is the trailer capital of the world.... probably 60-75% of the trailers built, come out of that area, so you'll be bringing it into a flooded market, if you decide to go that route.

      7/19 Day 5   Day 5 was spent celebrating my Isaacs 11th birthday!  Lots of cake and catering to him.  The exciting typical swimmimg and paddling ruled the day.  Grandma and grandpa DeZurik came up to celebrate his birthday as well.  Always nice to get both sets of grandparents together at the same time.   Fishing continued slow even more.  Still a successful night though. The birthday boy conceded his seat in the boat so grandma and grandpa cpuld join me for the evening fish trip.  My folks in all truth haven't been fishing for 2 years or more.  It was just nice to get them in the boat.   I struggled as the acting to put them on a consistent bite.  Mom as able to scratch out the biggest walleye at 17".  Dad brought home the honors of most fish caught landing a 14" and 15" walleye, 8.5" bluegill, and 2 perch as big aa his leech! I mustered up 1 small pumpkinseed.

      I like drifting with them and snap jigging them with a controlled fall...Almost every time you'll feel that tick just as it's hitting bottom... Last time I was on mille lacs that's all I could get them to go on. As far as colors I'd just match the forage Tullies in the lake use blue,purples,silvers....Perch use perch colors.. I think the jiggin rap is my new favorite way to fish, but it gets scary with them little hooks when you got a big eye on lol.

      Fished Big Sandy from 8-2 today and got 10 eyes (no keepers) keeper crappie and perch.... Marked tons of fish, but it was tough to get them to go, Lindy rig with a half crawler was the best by far. I tried leeches,jigging rap, jig n plastic. Points and reefs were the spots, later in the day a lot of fish were off the edges of the reefs... Just one day this year I'd like a happy medium weather wise, either I'm in 4ft rollers or 90 degrees with zero wind haha.

      According to Al Linder you can do it all with them...on his video that I watched a while back he was in deeper water throwing into 15 feet and working it back to the boat.  I have not tried it yet but will have to sometime this year.  Sand or gravel bottom would be the best.

      Just started playing with these this week as a friend has been have goos luck all summer with them on the Cass lake chain. I have not any success yet but not real sure on the best way to use them with my set this week.  My friend searches pods of fish out with electronics then spot locks and vertical jigs. I have no electronics or spot lock so I have been control drifting and jigging.   My questions...   Is there a depth they work better in, shallow vs. deeper?   Better vertically jigged vs trolled vs casted and jigged?   prime colors? of course my be lake dependent.   typically, aggressive jigging vs subtle jigging?   Thanks for tips

      Thanks cliff and lb I have actually had better luck with the puppet minnows from northland but I have mainly jigged them vertically definently is a fun way to fish

      I've been trolling at about .5mph while using a jigging rap. This way one guy can still drag a lindy. I keep the front hook intact but my boat has contributed about half a dozen to the lake so far this summer. Im still working on getting the hang of it. If I know I'm in a rough area I will attempt to keep the jig from hitting bottom which still seems to be effective. I did pick up a couple off brands that don't have a front hook that I want to try. This is just what I have been toying around with, I'm definitely not an expert at it.

      Hi Everyone, a couple of questions, I know there is free public boat ramp in Stillwater just above the lift bridge. Is there another public boat ramp further down river? I thought I read somewhere that Beanies is or was becoming a free public boat launch. Is that the case? Also, I am thinking of heading there on Monday to try my luck. Any tactics/depths/areas that have been producing for anyone?
