U-Haul Trailer Missing for 14 Years Re-Appears in CNY
There are a lot of trailers in Central New York. A U-Haul trailer that had been missing suddenly re-appeared here, 14 years after it had been rented. The 6-foot-by-12-foot trailer was mysteriously left at the Syracuse U-Haul office in the middle of the night, then transported to the site of its original rental in Cortland.
The fees for the "14-year rental" (about $30 per day) would equal somewhere between $150,000 and $165,000, depending on taxes. But, the folks from U-Haul do not intend to press any criminal charges.
A regional spokesperson for U-Haul said the company had recently been conducting a search for the trailer...and then it turned up, completely empty and without its license plate.
U-Haul plans to send the trailer to a Syracuse scrapyard for recycling.
