Box truck rentals in Reno area

Postby junglesmacks » Thu Jul 22, 2010 7:51 am

Ok so, I just got shot down hard with my Penske reservation. I'm hearing stories of black GPS boxes installed, getting towed from the playa, etc etc. Not worth it. I hear that Uhaul is semi-burner friendly, so I call them up. Yeah right.. they have a policy now that no in town truck rentals for longer than 24 hours anywhere in the Reno/Sac area in the end of August.

I'm flying in to Reno on the 27th, and already had planned on the box truck theory. Getting nervous now..

What to do? Anyone know somewhere in the Reno/South Lake Tahoe area that I can rent a truck from?

Actually that coupon code was good for 20%!


..and just for the record, I talked to the guy at the Gentry location for a while. SO HELPFUL and super cool. He knew exactly where I was going, and told me to send anyone to him that needed help.
