PHOENIX, Oct. 12, 2012 /PRNewswire/ -- With Halloween quickly approaching, U-Haul is excited to launch the first-ever Boo-Haul Halloween Costume Contest. This costume contest is geared toward sustainable, creative fun for everyone. Recycle, reuse and make a costume out of it!


"U-Haul is anxious to see what creative reuse of our moving supplies will be submitted through this contest," stated Toni Jones, Social Media Manager, U-Haul International, Inc.  "Our team of judges is looking for the most unique, creative Halloween costume made from new or leftover moving supplies.  What a great way to spend time with your friends and family, and be able to contribute to sustainability!"

If you have some extra moving supplies lying around, you already have a foot in the door. But, if you haven't, and want to make a Halloween costume for free, U-Haul and Moving Insider will be giving away U-Haul Gift certificates all month to help you buy the supplies you need to get started creating your costume .  You can visit, follow U-Haul on facebook ( or follow @uhaul on twitter (  to look for U-Haul gift certificates being given away . Or just stop by your local U-Haul facility and check out their Take a Box/Leave a Box display to see if you can pick up some boxes for free!

Participants entering their costumes into the Boo-Haul Halloween Costume Contest will be eligible to win a new Amazon Kindle Paperwhite and more.

U-Haul also encourages participation from your pets,and has created a special category just for them. For your lovable pet, we have a special prize they will enjoy as well. Your pet could be the winner of a prize pack featuring toys, treats and more, a $120 value.

The more photos you take and submit of your costume the easier it will be for the judges to make their decision. U-Haul will be judging the costumes on skill, craftsmanship, creativity and use of U-Haul moving supplies.
