    Anyone know of any?? The wife and I are moving to kansas city from atlanta after hunting season is over. I am a mechanic and have to move my tool box along with everything else of course. Standard loading ramps will never work. Large tool box and full.

    any help would be great!

    thanks

    :cheers:

    Well.......... looks like you have shot my idea in the rear! I am guessing you are moving yourselves and not using a relocation company. Most of them have a ramp or lift. I do not believe that U Haul has a one way on those trucks either.

    I have now called all of them. NO one way truck rental with a lift gate. I have no idea how im going to move my toolbox half way across the country now.

    Maybe you could get one with a good ramp, and figure a way to use a manual winch for pulling the toolbox up it.

    I might get a flat bed tow truck to pick it up and roll it onto the uhaul. Just a thought so far.

    if your toolbox is anything like mine, even empty you wont be able to roll it up a uhaul ramp..the ramp isnt wide enough. putting it on a rollback and then into the truck sounds like a logical solution to me though

    it will never go up a uhaul ramp for sure. its a matco double bay with a hutch and a side locker. im going to go with the flat bed to load it for sure.

    i have the matco double bay, no hutch...trying to talk a coworker out of his side box if he buys a new one:D it was everything 3 of us guys had to roll it up onto a car hauler with a 6ft ramp. rolling it off the trailer...well, that was nothing short of a theatrical event

    That does not sound right! I took one from California, Huntington Beach to Saint Charles, Mo. Yes with lift gate/ramp combo.
