UPDATED – Car dealer Break Away Autos is now a U-Haul dealer, too.

Jerry and Megan Fitchett’s business at 1506 S. Broadway just signed a deal to become a U-Haul neighborhood dealer. It will have trailers, trucks, towing equipment and other related items for rent along with boxes.

“We have a really big car lot, so we figured this would be a really good way to use up some of our lot,” Megan Fitchett says.

Jerry Fitchett says they have about 20 to 24 cars on their lot generally. Last week, though, they sold 16 cars, so they have only five cars on the lot right now.

“They just flew out the door,” he says. That’s why he says adding the U-Haul makes sense. He says there also aren’t many other U-Haul options in the area.

Rentals will be available from 9 a.m. to noon on Mondays, 9 a.m. to 5:30 p.m. on Tuesdays through Fridays and 9 a.m. to 3 p.m. on Saturdays.
