#UhaulFamous and the Arts

Jul 25, 2016

Whether you have a Van Gogh or your prized musical instrument, moving day calls for transporting your valuables– arts and music included. U-Haul trucks are known for moving possessions all around the country, but did you know that they are a favorite when it comes to hauling creative materials? Our U-Haul Famous customers took great care moving their pieces, and we have selected the best to share!

A family move does not have to be filled with stress and dread. Add some fun! This group stopped to strike a pose similar to their artwork.

Moving is a cause for celebration! Would a celebration be complete without a guitar and some music? Charles tuned his strings and provided some backseat entertainment while the trailer full of belongings was towed in the background. We are sure that road trip went by fast!

Art comes in all sizes, and in this case the canvas requires a lot of room. Good thing Erik rented a moving truck to accommodate the space he needed. Trucks come in all sizes to meet your moving needs so choose the right selection to fit your items.

The painting is a perfect representation of home in Florida with the ocean, sand, and palm trees. Using a cargo van to transport this masterpiece was a breeze.
