U-Haul Moving Services was co founded in 1945 by L.S. Shoen and his wife, Anna Mary Carty Shoen. After World War ll this couple recognized the need for do-it-yourself moving equipment that would be available on a one-way, nationwide basis. Today U-Haul trucks and trailers can be rented from over 15,000 independent dealers and more than 1,200 company-owned U-Haul Moving Centers.
U-Haul offers multiple moving supplies to make your move simple and easy. Also, U-Hauls is 100 percent buy-back of any unused U-Haul box, with receipt, at any U-Haul center nationwide. Some of the moving supplies U-Haul offers include the following:
If you need extra hands to speed up the process of moving you can request additional moving help:
Moving can be stressful and frustrating, especially when you do not have the right equipment to make the move fast and easy. U-haul is determined to help the customers by offering on-way destination moves. The hustle of driving a rented truck to its original location is eliminated by offering a specific drop-off location in the state where you have moved to.
U-Haul offers low prices on the moving trucks if you need to use them in the town where you live. Prices start as low as $19.95 with $0.69 per mile, but total cost is based on the size of the truck and how many miles you will be driving. Also, you have the option to pick extended days and miles rates if you need the truck for certain amount of days.
Even though the prices on the U-Haul trucks are cheap for in-town movers, they are much higher if you need to move to a different state. Depending on where you are moving, the prices can range from $170 to $1,200 on a small truck, and up to $1,900 on the larger trucks.
If you decide to use U-Haul as your moving partner, you're required to enter the make, model, and year of the vehicle you'll be using if you'll be towing a trailer. If you say that you'll be towing with a Ford Explorer, you may receive a statement that restricts you from using any of the U-Haul equipment because of the excessive costs in defending lawsuits involving Ford Explorer towing combinations.
U-Haul made it very easy to move from Miami to Tallahassee with all my items in one trip. They offer many options regarding size of truck or unit and are willing to help with anything.
Uhaul made my moving experience so much easier and stress free. I knew my stuff was in good hands and they did whatever they could to cater to my needs!
We moved a few months ago and rented a truck. The process was very user-friendly and quick!
when we moved we needed a reasonably priced hauling truck and uhaul was able to give us a great deal
I used U-Haul to move from southern Arizona to northern Utah and it was honestly pretty cheap. I love that you can pick up and drop off in different locations. Depending where you live does affect your rental options and availability so sometimes it’s hard to get exactly what you need.
Make sure you keep your own U-Haul records near Boulder, CO! With three children in college away from home, you can't ask for any better idea than to supply a temporary storage option for their ever changing living situation! From apartment or dorms, you can count on U-Haul to supply you with a box that you may pack, store, and later unpack. The unfortunate part of this service (which we have counted on twice) is that the organization is quite weak in accountability, organization, and service. Our boxes have been lost two times with no record of box number or location of storage. Each time, causing great delay and burden with extremely poor customer service. In a different location (Fort Collins), we rented a truck to move our daughter. Each step of the process went perfectly: convenience, organization, service... excellent!
U-Haul has been useful in the past, but after a bad experience with a U-Haul dealer in Boulder, it is unlikely I will use their services again. The man working behind the front desk was disorganized and terribly unhelpful after "losing track" of our trailer. It was a huge inconvenience and completely unprofessional.
Uhaul has vehicles that have either broken down on me, or they are too expensive for the services. My personal experiences have not been too great, so I am hesitant to recommend the company to others.
U-Haul is a very reliable company and has great service; however, their trucks are not very nice to ride in.
Not enough good words about U-haul. It is easy to rent, return and use. The space is much more than you think and the prices are low.
Very quick and easy to rent a moving truck here. There are different sizes of trucks to pick from and it is not expensive.
I have rented multiple Uhauls in the past years with moving and traveling in state. I think U-haul is affordable and sturdy and can be trusted as a auto renter company.
UHaul is a very convenient service that made it super easy to bring a truckload of drums hundreds of miles!
I had a great experience with U-Haul. Didn’t have a single problem with them and the prices were affordable
I like to move with Uhaul. Their vehicles are well kept and dependable and their prices are reasonable.
Cheap trucks that are accessible to my truck. The prices are extremely low and I was able to fit all my furniture in one.
U-Haul is my one and only go-to when moving. U-Haul is dependable, flexible, and affordable. I can always depend on U-Haul to have a variety of vehicles and items for my moving needs. They offer a ride range of truck sizes, whether you're moving items from a small room or large house. To top it off, they offer packaging materials like tape, boxes, and much more. The prices are great with a flat rate and your expense depends on how much you travel. Not too bad, I would recommend.
Love the self service aspect UHAUL has introduced, you can do things on your own time. The process is a bit extensive but you are renting a whole car!
U-haul is the best company for all of your moving needs! They make pick up and drop off very simple and their trucks are always in great shape.
Every time I deal with U-Haul I’m really satisfied with the service that I get. U-Haul makes moving stress-free.
I feel like U-Haul is a bit overpriced but the service is available for us to use which is wonderful! Their customer service is wonderful!
A good experience all together once we picked up the truck, the truck was new and ran well and pulled the 12 ft trailer very easily.
Most of My Uhaul experiences have been negative. Their customer support isn’t very helpful with certain issues. The trucks are older and are usually beat up.
We have used U-Haul for all our moving. We like the different options in truck sizes and the easy of renting.
Helped match me to the right sized moving van for my needs. Vehicle was in good condition and clean. Rental office had for sale all the moving supplies I needed including boxes, tape, packing material, and moving blankets.
We needed a truck while moving across the country and they made it super affordable.
Ive always had a good experience with UHaul. Lots of truck sizes to choose from. Pretty cheap rates. And lots of locations to rent from. My one annoyance with UHaul though is having to pay for the dolly. They purposely put it in the truck and lock it up in front of you, tempting you to break the seal. Hahaha kinda shady, but no big deal as long as you know to expect it.
A very easy process to rent a truck and said truck provides a lot of space, a dolly, and makes for a very safe and easy packing for for your trip.
Complete rip off. By far the worst customer service out there. As a business owner who uses uhaul extremely often it’s absurd how they treat repeat consistent customers.
U-haul has so many trucks to choose from for all my hauling needs. The rental process is easy, the staff friendly and helpful.
When moving from West Valley City to Herriman, we were able to load up a big U-Haul one time and get the job done quickly. Both the cab and the back of the truck that we rented were clean. The associate that helped us get it all lined up was courteous and nice, he even made us laugh a few times. We were able to get all the boxes and tape we needed for the move from U-Haul as well. Thanks U-Haul for making moving a breeze.
U-haul has always been the most economical truck rental for moving that I have ever seen. Trucks may be a little older in general but are well maintained. they also have the lowest floors for easier packing and loading. For the price, this company cannot be beat for cross country moves.
We have rented a few Uhauls and the service isn't amazing, but the trucks have always worked well and done the job we needed.
We have used U-Haul to move our son across the country. The truck was in good working condition.
I’ve used U-Haul and few times during our moves and it has made the moving process so much easier. I’ve done several moves with just our own personal trucks and trucks from friends and it was a lot of trips and a lot of work. I loved using U-Haul because everything was enclosed, so you had that piece of mind knowing your would losing anything along the way and we did the move is just a few trips. It was so work the money and made the moving process so much faster. We will use them again if we ever have to move again.
We moved twice this year and used U-Haul trucks both times. It is easy to schedule a truck and was perfect for our in-town move. This time we also rented blankets from them for a very good price and that was really helpful for protecting our furniture. I like how they make it easy and affordable to do a difficult task.
We found this the cheapest yet most reliable way to drive our things cross country when moving. We even slept in the cabin at a truck stop one night! One downside is the miles per gallon is pretty low and you really shouldn't go above 55 mph.
We used U-Haul when we moved to a new house. Because the move was close we rented a 15 foot truck and did multiple runs. The truck worked well but smelled like someone had smoked in it. The rental process was not bad but I wished that they would have thrown in some of the moving blankets for free. All-in-all it is a good service and very convenient. I would recommend using them again.
Helped us move successfully with speed. Well priced for their services. Their trucks work good and I would go back to them agian
This company is well established and has a quick and easy process to rent a truck. No complaints, good service.
Over priced, terrible management and horrible customer service!!! I have used Uhaul many times and have become tired of the overpriced rundown box trucks they offer. Rented plenty of trucks that the A/C didn’t work and if I’m paying $1.09 a mile that shouldn’t happen. Then when you call Uhaul and you don’t deal with the company you have to deal with the owner of that location which of course will not be helpful. Other truck companies are cheaper and WAY more helpful. AVOID UHAUL!!!
Always friendly service, always helpful, great prices on just what is needed to haul any type of furniture and boxes for moving , can pick up in one state move to another place
The trucks were cleaned out and when we were a few minutes late they didn't charge the fee. We did call before to let them know, but overall a great experience.
Recently moved out of State we search around at different companies to try and find a better value but ended up returning to U-haul because they still gave us the cheapest rate. Move went smoothly no problem with the rental or the service .
I have used U-Haul twice last year and I must say that I haven't had any issues with them at all. The two locations I used were in Orlando, FL. Both locations were willing to help me in any way they could.
Uhaul moving company is okay. Decently priced although it’s more expensive than Budget. Rented a truck from here and was giving a truck with no tail lights. That was fun.
U-haul has always provided quick and easy pick up and drop off. They make the process simple and the trucks have always been clean
U-Haul was fantastic when we used them for a cross country move. They were the most cost effective of all the other moving truck companies. The truck was clean and had extras like blankets and dollies making the move easier.
We rented a U-Haul truck to move homes within the same city; the rental process was easy and quick and when we returned the truck we didn't have any issues with added charges. Overall it was great.
I rented a trailer from UHAUL last summer. I found the staff at the pickup location knowledgeable, helpful, friendly, and fair. The trailer was older, but in good shape, clean, and functional. The online instructions were also helpful in guiding me through getting my hitch and light wiring setup on my vehicle. My only complaint was the drop off location forgot to process my return and I had to call the 800 number to clear it up.
