¿Qué hace U-Haul con el dinero recaudado como honorario ambiental?

Since 1945, the U-Haul Companies (“U-Haul”) have helped families move to a better future.

The Customer money collected as an environmental fee is used to support and foster the development and maintenance of sustainable U-Haul business operations. For example, operations that directly benefit our customers include, but are not limited to, the use of aerodynamic fuel-saving truck skirts, the fuel economy gauge, CNG and propane trucks, storage re-use centers, and an expanding alt-fuel propane infrastructure. The fee also partially covers operations that indirectly benefit our customers, such as energy-efficient lighting and HVAC retrofits, waste-oil heaters, water recycling units, van-body storage units, permeable ground cover and other water/energy saving projects.
