We made a great recovery today.
We got started at 8:00 this morning.
In order to get to the stuff I want I wanted to load on the trailer first, we had to move everything out of the storage unit. We had stuff everywhere…underneath the trailer, on the grass across the driveway, covering the doors to both units on either side of our unit…
very productive day
By 4:30, we had packed 10′ of the trailer from floor to ceiling and things were looking good. But I had to call it quits because I was starting to get a headache from the heat.
When my son finally agreed, we looked around and saw all of the stuff that had to be put back into the unit!
It took us an hour to shove it all back in.
After we ate dinner, we were sitting and talking in my apartment with that fresh in our memories. We were both in agreement that there was no way that all of that stuff would fit in the trailer’s remaining 16′.
The way I figured it, we were going to be about 3′ short.
It then dawned on me that I was going to have to rent a truck in addition to the trailer.
We went online and started looking at pricing.
A 10′ truck was going to cost $578. A 17′ truck would cost $629.
Then I had a thought, “Wait a minute…Why should I rent a truck for that final 3 feet? I should pack the truck full and save money on the trailer (they charge by the foot).”
We then figured that a 17′ U-Haul truck should hold about 10 feet worth of space on the trailer. 10′ of trailer space at $92/foot…the difference should more than cover the gas to get there.
I am so smart!…
