There’s a new place to get some help moving in or out of town.
U-Haul Company of Michigan said last week that Alpine Secure Storage in Comstock Park, located at 4000 Alpine Ave. NW, has signed on as a U-Haul dealer.
Alpine Secure Storage will offer U-Haul trucks, trailers, towing equipment, support rental items and in-store pickup for boxes.
U-Haul, which serves DIY movers, noted that "truck sharing" — or renting a truck as needed rather than owning a truck — is one of its core services, which allows people to access a fleet of trucks that is “larger than what they could access on an individual basis.”
The company said the service is part of its sustainability initiatives. Every U-Haul truck-sharing truck placed in a community helps keep 19 personally owned large-capacity vehicles, pickups, SUVs and vans off the road, according to U-Haul.
