"According to the U-Haul Migration Report, Houston was named as the top destination in 2010. Our loyalty marketing platform will help local business owners form the long term relationships with new movers that they need in order to thrive in this economy."

The required investment for a single, home-based franchise unit ranges from $49,900 to $77,050, which includes a franchise fee of $35,000.
