Tires and gas were still rationed or in short supply during the late 1940s when U-Haul began serving U.S. customers.

Our commitment to reduce, reuse and recycle includes fuel-efficient moving vans, neighborhood proximity, moving box reuse, moving pads made from discarded material and packing peanuts that are 100% biodegradable.
