Re: Budget truck rental was a nightmare, almost went to jail

With respect to the issue of the missing gallons of diesel, I actually asked the Budget person when I rented the truck whether the gas tank was full, and I further asked whether they filled it themselves or depended on the previous renter (since this is a problem I have run into with cars as well, b...

Re: Budget truck rental was a nightmare, almost went to jail

I have two comments that reinforce the idea that Budget should not be considered by anyone out there considering a truck rental. I have "rented" (quotes to be explained) two Budget trucks in the past month. With regard to the first, I got a detailed explanation about how to fill up the diesel gas ta...

Tipping and Broadway Express

The answer may well be somewhere on this board, but I presently am unloading a Broadway Express delivery (therefore have no time unfortunately to search) and it occurs to me I don't know whether I am supposed to tip the driver or not. The driver did not participate in the load or unload. About 10 li...

Re: Place in LA to transfer from Budget Truck to Broadway Ex

That's a good suggestion about the fire station. I might give it a try tomorrow. As to why I need a Budget truck, being the pack rat that I am I have two different storage bins at two locations plus I have to also load the remainder of what is left in my apartment into the truck. So, the Budget truc...

Re: Place in LA to transfer from Budget Truck to Broadway Ex

Nancy. I already have spent about two hours looking for a place and after not finding one thought maybe someone here would have some information, and if they did, would want to be helpful. I wouldn't have posted my initial request for information if I thought Broadway Express was responsible for fin...

Place in LA to transfer from Budget Truck to Broadway Exp.?

I have a bit of a problem. I live in downtown Los Angeles, and am having Broadway Express (with a 30 foot plus 50 foot = 80 feet) truck pick up my stuff. There is a chance I will be able to make a transfer from a Budget 16 foot truck to the Broadway Express truck at my storage location (on San Ferna...

Budget 24' Truck Question: 24 volt or 12 volt

I just reserved a Budget 24' truck for a move from Los Angeles to Seattle. Does anyone know whether these trucks are 24 volt or 12 volt? Thanks in advance for any info on this. And while I'm at it, I noticed when I went to the Budget office today, there is a sign saying that the FBI now requires tha...

Re: Ship books / cds via USPS?

Before I saw this thread, I was going to start one on an almost identical topic and actually wrote the question. So here it is: I am going to be moving from Los Angeles to Seattle, and in addition to my normal household items have maybe 100 or 150 file boxes full of books and business records. Since...
