I need to rent a trailer or truck to move household goods. Didn't find a u-haul on island (St Croix). Any suggestions?

Usually the car rental agencies have trucks to rent.
Try budget.
Or call a moving company if you've got lots to move.

I thought Home Depot may be an option. I might get a case of the lazies and let a moving company take care of it. It's only 8 boxes that are 2'x2'x4' tall but some are heavy!

Thanks for the responses.

Here locally we have a company called Two Men and a Truck. Very affordable local move options. Does anyone know of a similar outfit on St. Croix?

Check the yellow pages in phone book or AVIS or STX Trader.
There's always someone with a truck to move things.

If it's just a few boxes, or even some furniture, I have a pickup and a hand truck, and we live out west. I'd be glad to lend a hand and save you some money. I'll only work for rum drinks! PM me.big grin

I rent pickups from Centerline. They have several sizes from Toyota Tacoma extended cab w/full bed on up to full size. Checkout their web site. Just don't pickup at airport and pay the airport tax.
