I purchased a large item that I need to have moved to my place. A standard pick-up, trailer, or small moving truck is not going to work because I will never be able to lift it inside, and it also needs to be moved upright (so no tipping it slowly into the truck either).

I've checked out U-Haul, but they don't seem to have anything that would suit my needs. Someone mentioned Home Depot truck rentals to me, but I don't see anything on their website about offering a truck with a liftgate.

Any suggestions? Are there companies out there that move large single items for a short timeframe? It only needs to be transported about 15 miles, so I think it would be a 90 minute job at most.

Anyone here have a truck with a lift and want to make a few bucks on a quick job?

Will you pay for gas, hotel, and a daily per diem?

First a trip to Colorado to buy drugs. Now this.

Only reasonable conclusion is Douchebag is starting a drug business.

He's definitely your neighborhood drug dealer.

Penske has trucks. Or a piano moving company might work. If I was closer I'd help you out as I know a guy with one.

Enterprise rents trucks with lift gates. And they will pick you up too.

They are a larger vehicle, but they do not require a CDL. If you need help, Baby Mc drives trucks. KD and I do or have in the past as well.
