DECATUR, Ga., Jan. 4, 2016 /PRNewswire/ -- Do-it-yourself movers in DeKalb County have graciously welcomed a centralized U-Haul® store to meet their demands at U-Haul Moving & Storage of Decatur at 3653 Memorial Drive.
The 13.75-acre property features 145,978 square feet of space and is directly across the street from the Wal-Mart® Supercenter. Located in an area known as Avondale Square, the U-Haul building was constructed in 1969 and housed many businesses, including a furniture store.
"The best part about taking over this building is U-Haul will now be able fill the entire 13 acres of empty space and serve more and more customers at lower cost," said Raquel Bryan, general manager of U-Haul Moving & Storage of Decatur.
U-Haul closed on the property in September. U-Haul was leasing the property prior to that, so customers have had access to truck and trailer rentals, moving supplies and U-Box portable moving and self-storage containers since April.
This year the facility's transformation into a full-service U-Haul store will be completed with the addition of propane, hitch installation, RV parking/storage and 200 climate-controlled indoor storage units.
"This store is very important to the community," Bryan added. "It gives the community not only needed services, but peace of mind because a well-known, industry leader is here to stay."
The acquisition of the U-Haul Moving & Storage of Decatur property was driven by U-Haul Company's Corporate Sustainability initiatives: U-Haul supports infill development to help local communities lower their carbon footprint. Our adaptive reuse of existing buildings reduces the amount of energy and resources required for new-construction materials and helps cities reduce their unwanted inventory of unused buildings.
