The fiasco begins
To my frustration and disgust, not one of the places that rents moving trucks accepts "one-way moves", meaning that even if you move across the province, you still have to return their truck to the city you pick it up in. Apparently Discount, Avis, Budget, National, and many others believe that people only move within one city. It's convenience at it's best folks!
With a sinking feeling in my belly, I called UHaul, knowing that I was about to be charged an excessively high amount of money to move our stuff.
$311 dollars = small truck, 345 "free" km, insurance (since they don't let you use your own), and a one-way move from Windsor all the way to Jeremy's grandparents' place.
"Are you okay with this rate, m'am?"
Me: "well, I guess I don't exactly have a choice, do I? Do you know any other companies that rent trucks for one-way moving?"
"um, no." nervous laugh. "I guess it's okay to book then?"
Loud sigh. "Yes, go ahead."
It would cost a third of the price to rent out one of the trucks from the other companies, but I'm not willing to drive an additional 3 and a half hours to return it by "the next day".
