uHaul Trailer capped at 5 days?

Post by iPunkin » Wed Jun 06, 2018 1:02 pm

I'm trying to book our uHaul online, but I can't book it for anything longer than 5 days. This is for a 6' x 12' Utility Trailer from Salt Lake City. Anyone else having this issue?

Nope. I went online and made up a truck to rent your same trailer. I get 14 days on all the trailers I checked. Concord California.

Yeah, same here, California and 14 days. No problem reserving online.

Hint - call the actual location after you get online confirmation. Give them a week or so but talk to a person at a desk in an building at that U Haul yard. They'll tell you whats the real deal.

With any rental provider, when in doubt (or when the web interface doesn't display an option), call the number and speak to a human. In most cases they can help get things resolved for you.
