Uhaul dealer

Dillingham Self Storage has been a certified Uhaul dealer for years. We offer a gamut of moving trucks for our tenants to rent at a low cost. The trucks come in different sizes with varying capabilities. We’ve been offering this service for a while and encourage our tenants to make use of it. It makes the moving process a whole lot easier.

Surfrider Spirit Sessions

We’ve recently teamed up with Surfrider Spirit Sessions to sponsor Uhaul trucks for their use. Since March, we’ve been fronting the cost for these surfers to use Uhaul trucks to load and transport their boards for their students. Sufrider Spirit Sessions holds classes for youth to learn to surf. Their motto is: “Catching Waves and Changing Lives!”

Drivers from the business come by once a week to pick up a truck and they’ll be doing so until the end of their summer classes in July. Dillingham Self Storage attended one of their fundraising golf tournaments they host occasionally and our owner, Jim, brought up the idea of sponsoring Uhaul trucks for them.

Rail construction raises concerns

Construction of the rail has raised concerns for the Dillingham community, especially for its businesses. Local businesses are worried that the construction will prompt severe traffic and slow down business. Customers will have a harder time with accessing stores along the boulevard. Important utilities like electrical and water lines would also have to be shut down to make room for construction. Dillingham Self Storage has also been concerned.

Construction Concerns

Businesses are rallying together to communicate their worries with City and County. They aim to have the construction done at night instead of the day. City and County has informed local owners  that Dillingham Boulevard would be shut down but there are no concrete dates with regards to how long the vital road would be closed for.


Dillingham businesses have joined forces with the Honolulu Area Rapid Transit (HART) organization in hopes of maintaining communication with the city on the issue. The owner of Dillingham Self Storage has already done interviews with local news sources and is in communication with other businesses.

As of now, storage tenants still have access to their units. We’ll be updating tenants if and when there will be construction along dillingham.
