    Default For Rent: Truck part deux!

    I am sure you all remember my old thread (LINK) , well, I no longer have the White Dodge Beastie.

    I am now willing to offer my new truck, a 2012 Ford Ecoboost, so it just got cheaper as this is way better on gas!

    As before, there is no monetary "fee" per say. All I ask for in return is the cost of my gas and a couple beers or lunch, or what ever you see fit.

    My only real disclaimer is this. I am not a professional mover, and will assume no liability for damages or injuries or whatever. Anyone wanting to take me up on my offer inspects the loads before leaving and gives the green light.




    I have already helped out quite a few beyonders, and some of them have been nice enough to leave me feedback, and I am sure they will all vouch for me, and my abilities.

    The downside to this is, the new truck does have a shorter box, so in some instances things may not be practical to load into it. However, I do have access to a small 5x10 enclosed trailer that can be used as well. If you want to use that, I have to head out to Cochrane to get it, so be prepared for a few extra dollars in fuel.

    As always, I always go with my truck, and always drive it.

    Another Beyonder, Codetrap, has offered the use of his trailer.
    I do have a snowbear trailer that's 6x5 that can be expanded to 10x5 by reconfiguring it. It's got a 1500lb capacity.
    He lives quite close to me, and has made it available with a bit of notice. Hats off to him.

    Additionally, I am also looking for access to a flat deck trailer to haul cars with for Beyonders if anyone is willing to offer theirs for use as well.

    again, you show why you are one of the "good guys" on beyond. Also, nice truck, that's about exactly what I'm looking at buying, whenever natural gas, and my stock options, rebound.

    Meh, I try. Beyond has been good to me in the past, and I always believe in trying to pass along good karma as it usually comes back.

    But I am on the look out for a trailer to help you guys move project cars and such, and if one comes up for a steal, I will go grab it. Alternatively, if some people on beyond want to help and chip in, please let me know!

    In line with spikers great offer. I have a small snowbear utility trailer that I'm willing to lend out. The only *price* per se, is that you repair/replace whatever you damage, and you bring it back clean.

    Its only about 500lbs, so you can pull it behind a decent sized car. It has a 1500lb capacity. Great for moving large appliances and saving the $50 fee. As with spikers, I'm willing to pull it for the cost of my gas. If you just want to borrow the trailer, no charge.

    I also have a motorcycle chock that I bought for hauling bikes, and some soft loop straps for use tying them down.

    I can be reach via PM, and will usually answer pretty fast.

    Frick, I TOTALLY forgot about this thread.

    Spikers, if you need other trailers, you can always call these guys.
    http://www.greenwoodrentals.ca/

    ^They rent trailers of a wide variety of types & applications, and sell off the older ones as well.

    (Just another option for you). Their decent new trailers, so pretty much the polar opposite of the shit you'd find at Uhaul.

    100% recommended! Excellent communication, patient as I didn't have everything ready when he showed up. He came prepared with what was needed for the move and got his hands dirty by helping with the load and unload. If this was ebay you'd get a A+++

    Thanks again for your help!

    Can you send baygirl over to move something? It's bulky, but she should be able to handle it . . .

    Here's a link to my actual Utility Trailer, just so everyone knows what it is and what it can probably do.

    http://www.codetrap.net/binaries/M6000_ss.pdf

    Occasionally, I can source an enclosed 14' trailer as well if I'm given enough advanced notice. I'll also be the one pulling it, as I'm borrowing it from a buddy so I'm responsible for it.
