Who can you recommend?

If you can haul, or need something hauled, this is the place to post it.

Who can you recommend?

I have to pick up some parts in Richmond, California and bring them home to Van Nuys, California. I will need a small pickup or van as there is too much to fit in the trunk of a car. Who can you recommend or who have you rented a truck from at a reasonable rate? U-Hall charges mileage, so I don't want to use them.
Recommendations, anyone?
Thank you.

Try the trucks from home depot or lowes. i don't think they charge mileage just for the time.
Also try enterprise rental. they will rent pickup trucks. You might be able to get a weekend deal with no mileage.

I don't think HD or Lowes would take to kindly the their trucks running almost 400 miles one way. Then he'd still have to return it.
