Internships and group opportunities are available. We hold weekly Volunteer Orientations at each store.

Testimonials

I used Uhuru for moving to our new apartment. They were amazing, quick and completely professional. I recommend using Uhuru for all of your moving needs! Thank you so much!
-Donna

I liked using Uhuru because I want to support Black Businesses and whenever the store I'm greeted with a smile. They helped me move into my new place for an affordable price, while being extremely accommodating.
