Fillmore Building Supply offers a full line of dependable U-Haul moving equipment, including trucks, trailers and tow dollies. Fillmore Building Supply is open Mon. - Fri. 8 a.m. – 5 p.m.; Sat. 8 a.m. – 3 p.m. and Sun. 10 a.m. – 2 p.m.

“'Take care of the customer first' were the constant words from my father's mouth,” Foy said. “Rely on the Traffic Department to find you the equipment and then go get it even if it means working after hours. Using all the retail resources available selling boxes, light wiring adapters and towing supplies can help increase the bottom line when rentals might be slow,” he continued. “Remember to make friends with all the dealers in your traffic area and especially your AFM, they are your allies and business partners. These are all the keys to successful business here in Fillmore.”

“Fillmore Building Supply has been providing U-Haul customers with 45 years of reliable and committed service, and has proven just how important their business is to our community,” stated James Muniz, president, U-Haul Company of Van Nuys/San Luis Obispo. “Since 1945, U-Haul has depended upon our dealers to help local communities by providing moving equipment and supplies across North America.”

U-Haul, the leader in the do-it-yourself moving industry, is proud of its long association with independent businesspeople such as Foy. These successful relationships have been instrumental in helping U-Haul build a strong network of more than 14,000 independent dealers throughout the U.S. and Canada.

U-Haul was founded by a Navy veteran who grew up during the Great Depression. Tires and gas were still rationed or in short supply during the late 1940s when U-Haul began serving U.S. customers. Today, that background is central to the U-Haul Sustainability Program: “Serving the needs of the present without compromising the ability of future generations to meet their own needs.”  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.  Learn more about these facts and others at
