HONOLULU, May 1, 2013 /PRNewswire/ -- Moving to Hawaii just got easier and more affordable. U-Haul, North America's number one choice for do-it-yourself movers, has expanded its U-Box moving and portable storage services to the Hawaiian Islands.  Whether you are moving to or from Hawaii or making an inter-island move, U-Box moving pods are the perfect solution.



You can conveniently utilize our custom-designed trailer to pick up a U-Box portable moving and storage pod, load at your own pace and return to be stored in our secure warehouse or shipped to your destination.

"We're thrilled to able to provide an additional service to our customer to Make Moving Easier," enthused Tom Kardys, vice president, U-Box.  "Introducing U-Box portable moving and storage is long overdue and aimed at serving all customers moving to, from or within Hawaii."

U-Box pods are the most convenient and affordable way to make your next island-to-island move with rates starting as low as $575.  U-Box portable storage pods are 5 x 8 in size which fit perfectly on the barges and freighters that transport between the islands. 

U-Box pods can handle it all - couches, king-size mattresses, armoires and appliances will fit inside.  Whether you are moving to Hawaii to live, being deployed to Hawaii by the military or planning to attend a college or university in Hawaii, U-Box is the only portable moving and storage company that can help take the stress and complication out of coordinating the shipment of your goods.
