We have written numerous articles about U-Haul tow dollies and trailers. We have attempted to relay the serious hazard created by pulling a U-Haul unit with any type of car or SUV. Over the past two weeks, we have received multiple inquiries from persons who have had serious accidents involving U-Haul towing units. Since U-Haul continues to be the only renter of tow dollies and trailers that will rent to drivers of cars and SUV’s, it is not surprising that we continue to consistently receive inquiries about U-Haul-related accidents. It is also not surprising (and unfortunately, in a few cases, extremely tragic) that lives are being lost and personal property is being destroyed.
In one accident involving a U-Haul, the driver was towing his motorcycle and, as a result, the motorcycle was totaled. In another incident, most of the driver’s personal belongs were destroyed. In an extremely tragic case, and one which highlights the dangers of these U-Hauls, the accident resulted in two deaths. The two individuals who lost their lives were driving other vehicles in close proximity to the U-Haul towing vehicle when the accident occurred. Given the number of incidents on the roads that involve U-Haul towing units, it is not surprising that U-Haul towing vehicles pose a serious threat to themselves and to other drivers on the road. Again, if it becomes necessary to use a U-Haul towing unit, we suggest you only pull it with a U-Haul truck. If you are driving on the road and you notice a car or an SUV pulling a U-Haul towing unit, pay close attention while in close proximity. Since U-Haul obviously does not care about safety on our roads, look out for your own safety.
