TROY, Mich., April 20, 2016 /PRNewswire/ -- U-Haul has acquired and repurposed the former FUCHS Lubricants warehouse at 1621 Northwood Drive to bring additional storage options to Troy residents.
U-Haul Moving & Storage of Troy has been serving customers for more than 35 years at 1250 W. Maple Road. The recent addition of this adjoining property to the north will offer a much-needed solution to the storage demands of U-Haul customers.
The parent store offers 177 storage units. The new property will boost that number significantly when construction is completed. The 1.52-acre property is only four miles from Interstate 75 and the open warehouse currently stores 80 U-Box containers.
"We are excited to offer climate-controlled storage units and state-of-the-art security to more people," said David Ruff, U-Haul Company of Detroit president. "The property expands our lot capacity for trucks and trailers, letting us provide increased services to the Troy community."
Contact U-Haul Moving & Storage of Troy at (248) 362-0303 or stop by to let general manager Rachel Bayer and her team serve you. Hours of operation are 7 a.m.-7 p.m. Monday-Thursday and Saturday; 7 a.m.-8 p.m. Friday; and 7 a.m.-5 p.m. Sunday. Reserve equipment at uhaul.com or contact Reservations at 1-800-GO-UHAUL.
The acquisition of the former FUCHS warehouse 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.
"When the warehouse became available, we realized it really met our needs," Ruff added. "The (West Maple Road) location has always been a full-service facility with trucks, trailers, propane, hitch installation, U-Box portable moving and self-storage containers, storage and more. The warehouse gives us a needed addition of storage units and increased U-Box storage capacity."
