BINGHAMTON, N.Y., Jan. 5, 2016 /PRNewswire/ -- U-Haul, the industry leader in do-it-yourself moving and self-storage, is revamping a former storage center at 262 Front St. in Binghamton to offer more customers the convenience of a new full-service store in the Central New York region.
U-Haul Moving & Storage of Front Street opened in July and will benefit from renovations this winter and spring, including landscaping, updated interior and exterior lighting, new doors and a freshly paved parking lot.
The 2.76-acre property features five self-storage buildings with 39,275 square feet of rentable storage space. Customers have access to 442 storage units: 224 indoor climate-controlled units and 218 outdoor drive-up units. The location also offers U-Haul truck and trailer rentals, towing equipment, moving supplies and U-Box portable moving and self-storage containers.
"This U-Haul store offers convenience to the community," U-Haul Company of Eastern New York president Will Cintas said. "Before we acquired this location, customers from this community would have to cross the Chenango or Susquehanna Rivers into the congestion of downtown Binghamton to get to a U-Haul storage center. Now we are happy to be able to serve this community right in its backyard."
The acquisition of the Binghamton facility 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.
"This U-Haul store shows the future of this community," store general manager Anthony Hall said. "This facility gives this community a safe place to store their belongings while this part of town is being revitalized. I'm most excited about the opportunity of growth with this store. We have the opportunity to make this into one of the biggest storage facilities in the Binghamton area."
