If you don’t have access to your own personal utility van or tractor trailer, renting a U-Haul is the next best thing when you have a lot of stuff to move and a short time to do it! Felix Auto and Tire is a licensed U-Haul rental location, and we can set you up with a van, trailer, or truck that will assist you in your next big move!
Moving across town or across the country can be a stressful time. Doing the packing and moving yourself may both alleviate and increase your anxiety in different ways. Nonetheless, many people tackle the moving process on their own because it saves them money and it gives them a lot more flexibility in their moving schedule. Plus, we’ll make sure that the brake lights and other necessary components are working properly before you pick up your equipment. All the work is done for you!
These are great reasons to DIY your move. Felix Auto and Tire can make it even easier to get packed up and on to your next home with our U-Haul trucks, vans, and trailers. No matter what items you need to move, we have the perfect equipment available to you any day of the week!
If you have a lot of stuff to move, you can haul it in one big truck or several smaller ones. Larger trucks save money, mileage, and time because you are only paying for fuel for one vehicle. However, if you are moving out of town, you’ll need to drive your personal vehicles, too, so it might make more sense to rent smaller equipment.
Anyone over the age of 16 can rent and drive a U-Haul trailer, and those 18 and older can drive our trucks, provided that he or she has a valid driver’s license. This information comes in handy if you are sending a student to college or off to a new job, or if you have a responsible teenager who will be helping you with a family move.
Felix Auto and Tire can explain all your options, including our In-Town rates versus the rates for One-Way moves. Depending on how far you’re going and how long you will need the equipment, either of these might be an option for you.
If you happen to be moving north…way north…you’ll be glad to know that our U-Hauls can legally cross the Canadian border, even if you are relocating permanently. You can drop your van, trailer, or truck off at a certified U-Haul location anywhere in the U.S. or Canada!
Drop offs are just as easy as renting from Felix Auto and Tire. There will be a number listed on your rental agreement. Call it to find out where the most convenient drop off location is. Of course, with an In-Town rental, you’ll know ahead of time that you’re going to be dropping your equipment back off with Felix Auto and Tire.
Customers choose U-Haul again and again for their moving services for many reasons. One thing that keeps bringing people back is that our reservations are guaranteed. You’ll even get reimbursed if the equipment you request – or equipment that is of equal or greater size – is not supplied for you at the time and location agreed upon at least one day prior. With this policy, we are able to give movers peace of mind that they don’t get from any other equipment rental company!
There are plenty of other good reasons to rent a U-Haul:
Felix Auto and Tire can also provide you with tips on how to professionally load your U-Haul. Packing your things securely is the first step. After that, you’ll need to load the trailer appropriately. When it’s done right, you will arrive at your destination and see that nothing has moved from its original location! If you rent our pull-behind cargo trailer, one of our most popular rentals, you’ll need to follow the guidelines:
These are good tips for loading a van or truck as well. Following these simple steps will ensure that your belongings don’t get scratched, broken, or dented on the trip. Take your time and do it right. You’ll be glad you did!
