Who are Roadside Assistance Service Providers?

U-Haul strives to provide fast and efficient service to all customers contacting us, no matter the time of day or night. Therefore, U-Haul works closely with local, contracted service providers (mechanics, tow companies, etc.) to help customers.

The Service Provider’s role in the breakdown process is to assess and repair the equipment. Service Providers are not U-Haul employees, but are outside technicians and repair shops who have an agreement with U-Haul to assist customers in need. Building a quality-driven business to business relationship with each service provider is critical to our overall success. Each roadside service provider technician is reviewed before approved to assist in our roadside program.
