Sometimes you just want to move your belongings from one place to another. These poor folks decided to take their U-Haul moving truck through the beautiful Seattle Arboretum. Why not? It’s a short cut, it’s a nice drive, and what could go wrong? Click on the link to KOMO news (one of our local broadcast news channels).
I’m hoping they opted for the “extra insurance coverage”. I know your regular auto insurance usually covers small accidents but most of us have deductibles ranging from $100 to $1000. The one time I opted for the additional coverage when I rented a moving van (14 years ago), it was worth it. It was a small additional charge that covered EVERYTHING. I managed to scrap a long line in the wood deck of the Public Storage moving van and they wanted to charge me for it. It was a moving van and it was normal wear and tear. Then the guy saw I had opted for the additional coverage and said I didn’t have to worry about it.
If you think about it, unless you are a commercial truck driver and use to a large vehicle, it makes sense to get the extra coverage and talk with your insurance coverage before you rent the truck. Sure, it is cool you are moving from your parents’ basement into an overpriced apartment near Green Lake, but you need to cover yourself. Think how this poor guy’s weekend is now ruined.
