U-Haul's parent company, Amerco, is seeking Chapter Eleven bankruptcy protection.

Officials with Reno-based Amerco say filing for protection from creditors will help the company restructure its debt.

Amerco says it filed today in U-S Bankruptcy Court in Nevada.

It says some subsidiaries -- including U-Haul, Oxford Life Insurance and Western Insurance -- aren't included in the filing, and won't be affected.

Shares in the publicly traded company dropped more than 16 percent today -- closing at four dollars and eight cents, down 81
