How do I find a U-Haul location?

To locate your nearest U-Haul store, you’ll need to visit U-Haul’s website. But, before you go, take a second to learn about getting a cheap move without having to drive. 

You might automatically think that renting a truck is the easiest and cheapest option for your move—which may be true for local moves.
