I was stuck finding a uhaul location and paying out of pocket, the only reason i chose your site was due to the truck with the rental. this did not happen and the compensation did not make up for the additional time to drive to uhaul pick up a truck, move my items, and take the uhaul truck back. in addition to the additional gas charges for my vehicle and the rental truck."
