Episode Info

Episode Info: We’re “On this Move” this week with guest Andy Smith, Marketing Company President for the U-Haul Company of Eastern Arizona. U-Haul helps you move your stuff, but what about your Car? That is why we have Steve (that and other reasons – he’s the boss). Steve’s Boss, Felecia, joins with everything you need to know about getting your home ready to move. Then, Felecia and Mortgage Maven Ryan talk about the unicorn that is the current Phoenix real estate market. It’s a good time to buy. It’s a good time to sell. When does that happen, and what does it mean for you? Enjoy! Episode Recap FRIENDLY TAKEAWAYS: Change your oil every 3 months or 3,000 miles and keep your engine running forever Moving? Here’s why you want to call U-Haul No Vacation This Year? Update Your Home Instead Our weekly Phoenix housing market update What is Worn Out Oil? What is worn out oil? Here’s an example. A Ford F-150 manual indicates that oil should be changed every 10,000 miles. But it notes that under severe service, change that oil every 4-5 months or 5,000. What is severe service? Arizona heat qualifies. This client of Friendly’s followed the 10,000 mile guideline and ended up needing major repairs. Why? Worn out oil. If you have any engine operating at high temperatures, you need good, clean oil. This truck had a supercharger, which can get clogged quickly. Make sure you change your oil. The more you change the oil, the longer your car will last! Changing your oil depends on time and miles. Don’t go over either. And your oil light isn’t going to be the best indicator. Most oil lights check pressure, not level. Change your oil every three months or 3,000 miles, and your engine will last forever. Change all of your fluids every 2-3 years. Why Rent from U-Haul? Andy is the Marketing Company President, which means he runs the area U-Hauls. The biggest difference with U-Haul is the equipment. All of their equipment is designed for these moves, from trucks to trailers. They’re all fuel efficient. They also have 22% more load space as compared to similar trucks with competitors. What is a low deck? It’s so much easier to load your stuff into a low-deck truck, because you don’t have to lift it up so high or push it up a steep ramp. Think of loading and unloading heavy appliances? You’ll be thankful for that low deck. Most of the competitors’ trucks are designed for loading docks. Does your garage have a loading dock? U-Haul is focused on keeping your costs down. The trucks’ profile is designed to save fuel. The trucks also run on gasoline rather than diesel to save money. U-Haul Roadside Assistance: Not Cost to You What happens if you get stuck in your U-Haul? Yes, things happen. So, what if they happen to you and your U-Haul? They have a great roadside assistance program. It’s an easy app on your phone that alerts the repair entities, so that they can come up with a solution immediately. This is no charge to you. There is near total coverag...
