If you have a house, but no car, you still end up with do-it-yourself projects that need to get done.
One big problem is equipment rentals. I need a long ladder to complete my exterior paint job. To get that ladder, I need to rent a truck, use the ladder for several days and then rent another truck to return it. Pretty expensive ladder!
Seems kind of stupid really that the equipment rental businesses don't deliver, since I pretty much had the same problem even with a car.... it being very tricky to carry a long ladder on a car.
This Portland company actually deliver the goods . http://www.yardrents.com/Portland-Equipment-Rental Unfortunately, they aren't in my area, so I'm likely to end up pleading with the rental company or breaking down and renting a truck.
Have you run into any problems in your household projects and how did you solve them?
