Moving Truck Comparison Shopping

I'm moving in September (that is if I can find a place to move TO *shudder*) and I'm looking at moving trucks. I have the option of either going with U-Haul or Budget Truck. Does anyone have any experience with either of the two? I need to call them and get a more exact estimate, but they're closed now, so I thought I'd see if anyone out there had anything to say. The quote I got for U-Haul is $110. Does anyone have any tips for getting discounts? I know that Budget Truck has a discount, but the website keeps giving me an error...

Moving Stats:
(Would need a one-way moving truck, not an in-town one)
Moving about 70 miles
Moving probably on a weekday
I have a studio apartment and could probably fit all my stuff in the smallest truck.

stupid workweeks

Oh, man. I'm usually super-anal about these things, but I just realized August 1 is a Monday. For some reason I thought it was a Sunday. I KNOW July has 30 days, but I must've looked at the calendar too quickly or something. I'm hoping our new landlord will let us move a day early, as we'd have like 12 people to help us on a weekend, and no one on a weekday. And it would suck to lose a week, too. I know this isn't unheard of and depends on things like the current tenants, but what do you think my chances are?

Just a quick question that I need some help with..
I've moved around alot, but mainly when I was little, so i'm not so affected. I joined moved_ last year some time when i found out i was moving to new zealand, and I was angry about it aswell as upset. Since then I told myself to grow up and stop acting on the spoilt bratty role and realised its alot to look foward to, but now I'm two weeks away,, and I feel so sick at the thought of leaving what I'm so familiar to, and my friends, and my family and so much that I love. I just want to appriciate it more, but I can't anymore.
So, my question: How did all you guys cope with this?

Thanks xxx

...and by the way I know I haven't had to do this hardly as much as most of you, and experiencing it only once, I think you are all so brave xxx

I`m really glad to find this community `cause I`ve been suffering for..omg..6 yrs already since I moved...
I`m 19, living in Moscow now..
Almost exactly 6 yrs ago (May, the 19th) I came back from Namibia (South West Africa) after having lived there for 7 years. My whole childhood, all the places I loved, the people I loved, my friends and those dear to me were taken away in one 20-hour flight..
I cannot think of all those places and ppl without`s so unbearable..
Two summers ago I went back.. to find everyone completely different people, as I expected
but those memories still hold me..tight..
I have a strong love for Africa and from the psycological point of view it most probably can be easily explained..but I just can`t let go of my`s easier now that I`ve seen it once more..It`s like a drug..I have to take it once in a while to let me live..
