HARRISBURG, Pa.—With almost 100 equipment rentals under his belt, Rick Shaver is much more than a “regular” customer at U-Haul Moving and Storage of Harrisburg. He’s practically part of the team … which might explain the poetic review he wrote.
“A while back, the team here told me that they read their reviews out loud during their meetings,” Shaver recalled. “I rent from there a lot, so I get requests to review U-Haul pretty frequently, and one rainy Saturday, I decided I was going to write something really fun. I thought to myself, ‘I’m going to knock their socks off this week.’”
Shaver succeeded with his slightly embellished poetic review modeled after the famous holiday classic, “’Twas the Night Before Christmas.”
‘Twas the night before moving, and all through the house, everything was disheveled, including my spouse.
Her eyes wide and wondering, to what to do next. Her heart began racing; her mind was perplexed.
Our movers had canceled, I didn’t know why. The truck became broken; the help costs, too high.
I sprang to my cellphone, and what did appear? A shiny orange truck with a trailer in rear.
Our boxes all fit. The couch was a breeze! The guys—all fantastic—supplied all our needs.
Boxes and labels to hand trucks and hitches, the guys were so helpful it left me in stitches.
I jumped in the truck, all shiny and cleaned. My wife, now so happy; the kids’ faces beamed.
My neighbors all waved as I drove out of sight, happy moving to all. With U-Haul, that’s right!
Loyal U-Haul customer
