kinda o/t U-HAUL SUCKS!!!!!

hi guys. i am new here. just thought you might like to hear about an interesting thing that happened to me today. i am the proud owner of 3 fine ford trucks. a 1981 f-150 4x4, 300 6-cyl, granny low 4-spd...... a 1988 f-250 4x4 with a 460 v-8............and a 1997 f-350 4x4 with a freakin powerstroke diesel. i called u-haul today to rent a tow dolly to transport my sister-in-law's 1995 pontiac bonneville back to her house after the engine locked up. well the people at u-haul told me that none of my trucks had enough rated towing capacity to tow that car..........can you believe that? the f-150 could do it not to mention the f-350. what is up with people today. well i must go 4 now just thought i would share my stupid people story for the day.

Re: kinda o/t U-HAUL SUCKS!!!!!

That's B.S.!!!
I rented a tow dolly to tow a 1990 Dodge Caravan with a 98 Expedition and had no problems. Of coure I only told them I was towing a Caravan. I really towed my 78 Bronco to Bloomsburg, but their dollys aren't rated for trucks as big as Broncos, so I lied. [img]images/graemlins/wink.gif[/img] They also let me rent them to tow more (Caravans....hehehe [img]images/graemlins/wink.gif[/img] ) with my 87 diesel Suburban with no problems. The F250 and the F350 should be well within their specs. I would call back and ask to talk to the manager or call another area U-Haul. Although the F150 is capable, it might not be within their GVWR specs to tow.

I agree - that's TOTAL BS! [img]images/graemlins/mad.gif[/img] Tell 'em to whip it out & compare! [img]images/graemlins/shocked.gif[/img] (The spec book that says an F-350 can't tow a little car. [img]images/graemlins/wink.gif[/img]) Then pull out your owner's manual or direct them to this site and show them the facts.

I would not even bother wasting breath arguing with the moron that told you that. Just call the next nearest uhaul.
