U-Haul is an American moving equipment, trucks and storage rental company, based in Phoenix, Arizona, that has been in operation since 1945.
U-Haul’s rental fleet is composed of trucks, trailers, auto-transports, and various other equipment. Heavy duty pickup truck and van cabs manufactured by GMC and Ford are mated with U-Haul manufactured truck boxes in fabrication plants located at various places in North America. The vehicles are all gas powered, with previous models offering diesel 17-foot (5.2 m) trucks that must be brought back to the same location where they were rented. Six truck sizes are available, ranging from 10 feet (3.0 m) to 26 feet (7.9 m), and multiple trailer sizes, in addition to a two-wheeled “Tow Dolly” and a four-wheeled “Auto Transport”. U-Haul advertises that their trucks have lower decks which are built below the tops rather than above the rear tires like standard cargo box trucks. Some trucks also have an over the cab storage area called “Mom’s Attic.” The trucks are painted with SuperGraphics which are educational images of different states and provinces across the United States and Canada. Pickup trucks and cargo vans are also available at most corporate owned centers, and select neighborhood dealerships.

U-Haul has two main classifications for equipment in its fleet. The first type of equipment is known as “In-Town” and second as “One-Way”. The “One-Way” equipment is mostly used for one-way trips, meaning pickup and drop off at different locations where as the “In-Town” equipment is meant to be picked up and dropped off at the same location and the equipment is meant to be used for a local move.
All trucks owned by the U-Haul display apportioned Arizona license plates that do not expire. Newer trailers in the U-Haul fleet have apportioned plates, registered in a variety of states. In the Alaska and Hawaii markets, U-Haul registers equipment locally because those states do not have apportioned vehicle registration systems.
Some U-Haul rental facilities have public storage units available for rent on a weekly or monthly basis, and rent out portable storage lockers on a monthly basis. The Storage facilities can be located at most corporate locations and offer a vast amount of amenities included.
