ASHLAND — U-Haul Company of Massachusetts and Ohio, Inc. has announced that J&B Transportation, Inc. signed on as a U-Haul neighborhood dealer to serve the Ashland community.

J&B Transportation at 1069 State Route 545 will offer essential services like U-Haul trucks, trailers, towing equipment, moving supplies and in-store pickup for boxes.

J&B Transportation owner Jeffery Barker is proud to team with the industry leader in do-it-yourself moving and self-storage to better meet the demands of Ashland County.

U-Haul has teamed with independent dealers to offer moving equipment since 1945. With the COVID-19 outbreak creating challenging times for small businesses, more than 20,000 dealers across the U.S. and Canada are creating supplemental income through their U-Haul partnership.

When a customer rents from a U-Haul dealer, they are directly supporting an independent small business in their community.

As an essential service provider, U-Haul stores and dealers continue to serve the public. Our products are utilized by First Responders; delivery companies bringing needed supplies to people’s homes; small businesses trying to remain afloat; college students; and countless other dependent groups – in addition to the household mover.
