  1. Omg! Why didn't my parents do this for me when I went out to college? Instead I was squished with my belongings; force to leave other items at home and do multiple trips in between semester. Just when I settled in with everything the school year was up and all that shit had to come out! Smh! The horror! 😱 And I hate Sallie Mae. Just a side bar conversation. ✌

  2. Will a full size couch, not sectional but an average couch fit in the 6×12 enclosed trailer? Picking one up Tuesday

  3. Hey U-Haul, can you make videos on how many boxes can fit in each trailer? With a variety of box sizes you offer for sale in your stores I think it would be great if you could show what combination of boxes fit in each trailer. Granted, many people have furniture, but I still believe that it helps potential customers get an idea of what they can and cannot fit in your trailers and also helps them pick the right trailer for the load they are fixing to carry. #askingforafriend
