 It was the least expensive of all the other companies. So worth it and so convenient. I certainly recommend them.

The concept of a combination truck rental and pod storage all in one equipment piece is genius!

I was a little nervous about using a big 24' truck but it actually was easy to drive. The back up cameras were a HUGE help!
