The DIY moving and self-storage company U-Haul has signed a partnership deal with resident technology company Moved aimed at the multifamily sector.
According to the companies, the partnership includes exclusive rights for both U-Haul and Moved’s business-to-business-to-consumer (B2B2C) software, which is designed to streamline the onboarding and offboarding process for tenants of multifamily communities. This is the commercial agreement for U-Haul and the company’s first outside investment in a software firm.
“Renters have been turning to U-Haul for 78 years, and we’ve been there with the expertise to help,” said John “JT” Taylor, president of U-Haul International. “This partnership is another way for us to reach renters and make their moving experience better. It puts the world’s largest DIY moving fleet at their fingertips, as well as U-Haul self-storage, U-Box portable moving containers, moving supplies, and localized access to 7,000 Moving Help Service Providers and 23,000 U-Haul rental locations. Putting customers first is what U-Haul is about. Moved is another way to help us achieve that.”
“Moved is on a mission to eliminate stress from moving – for multifamily owners and operators, as well as their residents,” added Adam Pittenger, CEO of Moved. “Partnering with an iconic brand like U-Haul marks a significant milestone in our journey to achieving that goal and delivering a world-class moving experience.”
