A typical day revolves around each customers rental needs. People, during a move are at U-haul to rent a truck, or trailer to move their household. While customers are not in a very good mood because moving is stressful, it is rewarding to put customers at ease by answering their questions and getting the moving equipment they need.
U-haul has basically two seasons. In the Summer, people tend to move. It could be students, it could be home owners and apartment renters. U-haul can be very busy and usually most trucks and trailers are rented during the warmer weather. You may get 28 - 32 hours of work in a week. In the Winter, it is just the opposite. You may work 8-12 hours in a week, while business is slow. It is feast, or famine. This is the nature of the moving business and no fault of U-haul.
The job can be quite physical and requires lifting, moving and hooking up trailers, cleaning 30 or more trucks during a shift in the Summer.
Free jackets. Good training.
Can go from very busy to quite slow depending on the season.
