CANTON, N.C., May 9, 2014 /PRNewswire/ -- Papertown Storage, located at 206 Willis Rd., welcomes U-Haul products to their recently purchased storage business.

Small businesses are the backbone of the American economy; however, most people fail at them. Mike Harkins and his wife Carol have teamed up with U-Haul to make sure their business flourishes.

"My wife and I purchased the business from its former owner, and we are already seeing great results from our U-Haul online truck reservations," Mike Harkins said. He sees this as a chance to improve his bottom line thanks to U-Haul, because the old owner was open only once a week.

"This is going to be a great double benefit for us," Harkins added, "because the previous owner was open only one day a week. Our new schedule will enable customers to move in and out more conveniently, and that will help out a lot."

Families needing the finest in moving services now will have increased convenience and a shorter distance to travel when moving, which not only will make their move easier but also will have the positive effect of reducing the amount of carbon emissions released into the atmosphere. U-Haul is partnering with business owners across North America to increase convenience for customers while helping our environment is just one of the programs that support U-Haul Company's Corporate Sustainability initiatives.
