PHOENIX (AP) -- U-Haul International Inc., a subsidiary of Amerco, said Friday it plans to sell 13,000 moving vans by March 31, 2010.

The move comes as a result of the introduction of a new fleet of moving vans, the company said.

The targeted market for the vans being sold is small-business owners.

The company said the vans are low-mileage cargo trucks that feature low decks for easier loading and unloading.

Shares of Amerco added 76 cents, or 2.8 percent, to $27.49 in afternoon trading.
