BATON ROUGE, La., March 25, 2016 /PRNewswire/ -- U-Haul is serving up a variety of new storage options on the northeast side of Baton Rouge with the acquisition of a former A Storage for U facility at 8415 Greenwell Springs Road.
U-Haul Moving & Storage at Greenwell Springs Road features 10 buildings with 60,000 square feet of storage space. Customers have access to 346 outdoor drive-up storage units and 136 indoor units, including 50 climate-controlled units. The U-Haul store also offers truck and trailer rentals, towing equipment, moving supplies, boxes and more.
"With the U-Haul leadership, name brand and dedication to the success and growth of our Team Members and facilities, I have no doubt this location will rocket to success," U-Haul Company of Southern Louisiana president Patrick Allen said. "Before U-Haul took over this property, we had only 55 U-Haul-owned storage units in Baton Rouge. This acquisition now truly puts us in the storage business here."
Stationed just eight miles from Louisiana State University's campus, U-Haul now presents LSU students with a convenient location to safely store their belongings between semesters when they return home or change residences.
Numerous upgrades are being completed at the facility.
"We are increasing the lighting, upgrading security with new cameras and remodeling the front office," general manager Derek Edens said. "This will be a premier facility where residents can depend on their storage units to be clean, dry and secure. U-Haul is a trusted name in the moving and storage industry, and for good reason."
The acquisition of the Baton Rouge location 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.
