Rent a van/truck?

Postby Ozzy3421 » Wed Mar 03, 2010 1:25 pm

Hey All,

I"m looking for companies that ppl have used in the past to rent a van/truck to load our goods and cruise to BM. I'm from PA and driving over yonder with some friends. Does anyone know or can suggest a company that provides descent prices?

or suggest whats better to rent (van or truck) There are 3 of us piling in for the shift driving... 38hrs straight BABY!

Thanks for any input!

Consider buying a cheap vehicle, then sell it when you get back.

Thanks! I'll check out the thread or see if I can find a beater!

Do you know if there's going to be a tranportation board started? I'm also trying to see if other burners wanted to caravan out to BM.

uggh don't drive straight back. I did it both ways with 2 people and it was horrible.

Also don't drive at dusk if you can avoid it, I almost hit like 5 deer.

Thanks for the advise!

My dad and I drove straight to colorado last year and that was an "adventure". we were driving behind a semi saw deer getting slaughtered... we pulled off the highway for a bit needless to say.

Check and see how many seats your van has. Commercial vans seat only 2 persons.
