U-Haul Reno

Postby Boijoy » Fri Mar 12, 2010 11:26 am

just thought I'd post here & let you all know that the U-Haul located @ 3411 South Virginia Street, Reno will NOT rent for Burning Man & was quite RUDE about it.

Are you saying everybody on this board should flood them with calls asking about renting during that time of year?
What other people think about you is none of your business.

Absolutly NOT!! here is the number (775) 825-4445‎ :lol:

I just don't know why people have to be so rude about it. a simple "no" would have been just fine.

Some people do not realize how much their rudeness can cost them! ... Losing one customer today will cost you 100 customers within a month.

It just never hurts to be polite!

I've mentioned this before:
That was the Uhaul dealer I rented a trailer from in 07, they asked me what I wanted it for (which to me is like asking the races :x of occupants in a dwelling on the 2010 census form, none of there damn business) but I told them to go camping,
they asked where I was going and I said the Black Rock Desert.
Guess they did'nt put two and two together

yeah.. I figure when I go to pick up the Budget Truck I will have to cover my tattoo of " the man" & make up a lame ass story about moving, or building something. I just HATE fibbing. no doubt they will know where i've gone by the mileage & dust when I return it. I plan to clean it very well.. but you know there is NO way to get all the dust. & glitter. :)

Glad that's all it takes!

Further advise is that before retuning it you go to Alamo Truck Wash(off I-80 Gregg St. Sparks) .For $39.95(engine wash included though make sure to remind them) and most likely an hour wait the truck will pass inspection at Budget every time.Other places could charge $100-200 for same thing.

On a related but separate note, a good idea I've heard is to stop at a gas station and use their air compressor to clean your tires, breaks, and air filter. Wouldn't work for the whole under-hood though.
