What is the cheapest/easiest way to get 4-6 sheets of 4x8 drywall to my
house. My options as I see it are have someone deliver it, but called
someone last night and the delivery charge is $100, which is about five
times the cost of the material or rent a pickup and try and lug it from
Home Depot. I'm also doing all this on my own without anyone to help.
Or Home Cheap-O does have the truck that you can rent. I did once, and the
thing was under $30 for me to pick up my own patio door. They had a guy
help me, but he sort of had his hand out for a tip, which I slid $5 into.
Once back home, you can get the sheets out yourself, can't you?
go to an autoparts store and buy a suction cup roof carrier. (like a 2X4
with suction cups). and than make sure you secure load real good. I hauled
about 100 sheets on mine over the span of a few years. 6 is the most I would
do at once. It was pretty hilarious to see a chevette driving down the road
loaded with wall board. It even hauled a sofa once the same way.
But the find a friend with a pick up is proably the best.
1. HD will deliver. For far less than that, I am sure.
2. HD will rent you a truck (and load it). Around here (central
Florida) they charge $25 for the first 75 minutes.

you could always rent from Uhaul and get the truck for the day, that
way you wouldn't be rushed to unload the drywall, which by yourself
will be a job, let alone doing it within the time you're allowed to
have the truck from Home Depot
