Our History - The U-Haul Story

Company philosophy

Our core value belief

Improving life - work balance

U-Haul is a family-oriented company that highly values its team members and treats each team member like family.  The company was started by a family who wanted to help other families move.  When talking to any member of our team, sooner or later each one will say that the company is like a family to them.  With a strong family philosophy engrained in the company since day one, U-Haul has developed programs that compliment the federally compliant health-care plans being provided...programs aimed at establishing the right balance between life and work, for our team members and their families.  Here are just some of the Improving Life - Work Balance programs U-Haul has available.
