How Does uhaulcarshare Work?

Update on 10/20/16

Many people move to new cities without owning a personal vehicle to get around town.  Sometimes owning a car is not an option whether it’s due to cost, parking limitations, storage, going to college, or simply by choice.  So, what do you do if you don’t own a car but need to pick up a friend from the airport, or you want to leave the city for the day, or all the bus drivers go on strike and you can’t get to work?

With car sharing programs, like uhaulcarshare,  you can rent a car by the hour without having to deal with gas, insurance, parking fees and maintenance costs.  This is ideal for any city dweller or college student who doesn’t own a vehicle but occasionally needs a car.  UhaulCarShare is available in over 40 locations across the country and many are near Universities.
