State...not star! Not sure what is worse my typing or my eyesight.
Phil, just to let you know this is a world wide site, some of us actually do care about more than just ourselves! Please remember it is not all about you.The location was not of importance to me. You said world wide alerts, I was merely trying to limit my questions to the USA. I'll ask again, how does this work? Are we relying on Bob the U-Haul guy to initiate the alert? If so, what is the criteria for him to do so?
My memory is that they used modified some of the TSA protocols along with specific questions about the truck usage. I rented a truck a year ago to move 250 miles and wasn't asked any questions. A week later I rented a truck for local use and was asked extensive questions when my driver's license address didn't match where I was using the truck. I know that it was prompted by the Uhaul computer as he traced the screen with his finger when he asked the questions and was very attentive to typing my responses word for word....he also went so far as going online and confirming that the storage unit phone and address that I provided were genuine. I ASSUMED that it was in response to Homeland Security....not the employee as he was really busy and wanted to get to the other paying customers.
My experience may or may not match others...but it is all I have. If you want to check online....I got thousands of hits off homeland security rental truck safety.
