On The Move has a turnkey truck-leasing program that allows self-storage facilities to provide a state-of-the-art vehicle for customers to use. You may add a profit center to your business by renting the vehicle to your customers or the general public. We can wrap it in your custom graphics and make it a rolling billboard that advertises your facility when being driven by your customers.

Our vehicles have an extended warranty of five years or 100,000 miles. We provide all the ancillary materials you need to rent the vehicle and for your customers to use it safely. We can also provide you with an insurance license to our fleet policy, giving you $5 million liability and other coverage (comprehensive/collision) at a low cost.

You can sell advertising spaces on the back door of the truck to local companies to zero-base your truck and get it for free. We would be glad to assist you in ordering your new vehicle.

On The Move has always been and will remain customer-oriented. We strive to provide a worry- and hassle-free turnkey process to truck ownership. Effectively, we do it all!  


Maury Westerdale, our founder and chairman of the board, is a pioneer in the self-storage industry. He built his first facility in 1978, and discovered his customers’ need for a rental truck. He converted his rental trucks into moving billboards when he added graphics to advertise his facility.

On The Move was founded on his discoveries and designs, which have developed into our modern-day truck-rental program, with leased vehicles in all 50 states and Canada.
Difference From Competitors

On The Move leases trucks directly to self-storage owners and allows them to set up their own truck-rental business. They get to make all the decisions about their rates and keep all the profit. By putting their own graphics on their trucks, they are creating moving billboards that advertise their facility.
Future Plans

On The Move is proud to announce that we have expanded our market to include Canada for truck sales and insurance. We continue to provide vehicles (cargo vans, pickup trucks, etc.) for service companies. Additionally, On The Move is always trying to make our trucks safer and easier for our customers to use. We are excited and look forward to our future.
30 Seconds in an Elevator With a Prospect

Anyone moving belongings into a storage facility will need a truck. On The Move can provide you with everything you need to start a truck-rental business and allow you to keep all the profit.
