TRURO, Nova Scotia, Jan. 6, 2015 /PRNewswire/ -- When competition moved into his area, Central Self Storage owner Jeff MacDonald turned to the leader in do-it-yourself moving to keep his clients coming back.
Central Self Storage, located on the residential side of the Village of Bible Hill, now offers U-Haul® trucks, trailers and towing equipment, moving supplies and more.
Central Self Storage is at 333 Main St., Truro, NS B2N5G6. Operating hours are 8 a.m.-5 p.m. Monday-Friday and 8 a.m.-noon Saturday. Reserve U-Haul items at this location by visiting http://www.uhaul.com/Locations/Truck-Rentals-near-Truro-NS today.
MacDonald has owned Central Self Storage since 1988. The business has been in serving the community since 1975.
MacDonald said his partnership with U-Haul has helped to secure current customers and attract new clientele despite the presence of other self-storage units opening in and around Bible Hill.
Many years ago during a visit to the U.S., MacDonald said his parents noticed how popular storage units had become and that's when his family decided to invest in their own self-storage business. Prior to Central Self Storage, the family was involved in equipment rental for parties and other events dating back to the 1950s.
"Rental is not new to me," MacDonald said.
Although MacDonald has been offering U-Haul products for a short time, he has seen increased traffic flow at his facility. The road signage and U-Haul truck have served as fresh promotion for Central Self Storage.
Central Self Storage's location offers easy access for residents of the surrounding Bible Hill neighborhoods. MacDonald also operates an "awards and recognition shop" under the same roof.
Central Self Storage is a great place to become U-Haul Famous. Take your picture in front of a U-Haul product, send it in and your face could land on the side of a U-Haul truck. Upload your photo through Instagram using #uhaulfamous, or go to www.uhaulfamous.com to submit photos and learn more.
