"The Box Truckload Sale" Available in Select Markets

PHOENIX, May 1, 2013 /PRNewswire/ -- U-Haul International, Inc., today announced that it is slashing moving box prices on four of its most popular boxes through a program called "The Box Truckload Sale."  These boxes have been rated as the number one choice for do-it-yourself movers and are designed to be reused, as they are able to handle the rigors of moving and self-storage. By reducing the price of these great-quality boxes, the Company is able to continue to reduce the cost of moving.

Whether you're moving, shipping or storing your personal belongings, U-Haul can help by offering the widest selection of boxes and moving supplies for every need. The New Box Truckload Sale prices couldn't come at a better time, especially with college students beginning to make their plans to move out of dorms for the summer. 

"By making adjustments in inventory planning and working with our supply chain, we are able to 'buy in bulk' and pass the savings through to our customers, all without changing a single fiber on the box. The Box Truckload Sale is designed to get the highest quality moving boxes to customers at the lowest possible cost," stated Steve Dudley, program manager, U-Haul Boxes and Moving Supplies. "Getting our customers a better and better product and service at a lower and lower cost is at the forefront of everything we do here at U-Haul. We are very proud to offer boxes for as low as 68 cents at Company stores and participating U-Haul dealerships through the summer." 

You can find the New Box Truckload Sale pricing already in:

  • Atlanta, Ga.
  • Las Vegas, Nev.
  • Montgomery, Ala.

Beginning the first week of May, this pricing will be available in:

  • Chicopee, Mass.
  • Eugene, Ore.
  • Hartford, Conn.
  • Minneapolis, Minn.
  • New York, N.Y.
  • Phoenix, Ariz.
  • Portland, Ore.
  • San Diego, Calif.

"We know that the prices of the box, bubble wrap and other packing materials often can be 'peanuts' compared to the cost of replacing personal possessions that were not properly protected," Dudley continued. "And that's why we always promote Box Truckload Sale savings and remind every customer to 'take plenty,' and not worry about having enough boxes, especially with the U-Haul Box Buyback Guarantee." 

U-Haul customers who take advantage of the Box Buyback Guarantee are preventing waste at the source and reducing demand for natural resources by returning unused boxes to U-Haul for a full refund.

In addition to these incredible sale prices and the 100 Percent Buyback Guarantee, U-Haul also encourages people who have unwanted boxes, or need some, to take advantage of the U-Haul Take a Box, Leave a Box Program. The program enables customers to return their reusable boxes and allows others to take them as needed ? FREE. U-Haul encourages anyone who has any type of reusable box to drop it off at the nearest U-Haul location and allow another family to reuse the box, free of charge, instead of throwing the reusable box into the recycling bin.
