I'm an Elderly Woman, & I Need Help Renting a U-Haul so I Can Move Please!

My Story:

I am a 67-year-old woman, who has just retired. After retiring, I'm living on a fixed income, so all of the changes that I've had to make after retiring have been difficult to manage. I decided to downsize and move out of my last home because it was too expensive. My son and his family have been so kind as to let me live with them since April to save for an apartment. I really love spending time with them, and I've enjoyed living with them, but I'm ready to get back to living in my own space.

I've already secured a new apartment, and it's in a nice area that's close to my family, but most importantly, it's a lot cheaper, allowing me to live in a much more financially stable position. My grandson has offered to help move me, and he'll be able to do the heavy lifting; however, we don't have any way to transport my belongings. While I'm living on a fixed income, and while my money is tied up in my new apartment, I can't afford to cover the cost of renting a U-Haul. I don't want to lose out on this apartment, but I just don't have the means to afford movers, so I'm very humbly asking for assistance with renting a U-Haul. I would be very grateful for this assistance, as it will allow me to comfortably start the next chapter of my life. I'll be able to afford all of my expenses on my fixed income, and I won't have to sacrifice paying any of my bills or endangering my long-term financial stability. Thank you.
