In fact, you don’t even have to lift a finger!

What are U-Box Containers?

U-Box containers are a portable storage and moving solution, backed by U-Haul, the moving company you know and trust. They allow you to store and move your belongings to any destination(s). They are made of pressure treated plywood to provide a stable and chemical free environment for your belongings. U-Box containers also come with a durable and weather resistant cover to protect your items from weather-related damage.
