Bert Huntley, owner of Bert's Pit Stop, located at 2630 State Highway 29 South, recently added U-Haul truck and trailer rentals to his automotive oil-changing service.

Families needing moving services will now have increased convenience and a shorter distance to travel when moving, which not only will make their move easier but also will have the positive effect of reducing the amount of carbon emissions released into the atmosphere, according to U-Haul.

Bert's Pit Stop offers a variety of moving equipment and supplies designed specifically for moving household furnishings, including moving vans, open trailers, closed trailers, furniture pads, appliance dollies, furniture dollies, tow dollies and auto transports.

"I became a U-Haul dealer to get a chance to earn a little extra money," Huntley said.

"U-Haul is proud to be partnering with a quality independent business such as Bert's Pit Stop," said Paul Hettwer, president, U-Haul Company of Fargo. "Bert is a great example of the type of successful business relationship U-Haul has established in order to build and maintain a strong network of more than 14,000 independent dealers across North America."
