NASHUA, N.H., July 30, 2019 /PRNewswire/ -- U-Haul® recently acquired the former military radar system machine shop at 476 Amherst St. to better meet the moving and self-storage demands of Nashua residents.
U-Haul Moving & Storage of North Nashua will soon be operating out of the new location and offering truck and trailer sharing and moving supplies. Once the 19,517-square-foot space is renovated and construction of the new 76,000-square-foot two-story climate-controlled self-storage building is completed, it will include more than 750 indoor climate-controlled self-storage rooms with high-tech security features at affordable price points.
"U-Haul will be converting this vacant building into a modern retail and self-storage facility," said Scott Chase, U-Haul Company of Eastern Massachusetts president. "This building was built in 1959 and was home to Fab-Braze Corporation for a long time. We didn't want to see this building become an eyesore on the community, and now it will be repurposed for a new life."
The property, acquired on May 21, will soon offer towing equipment; U-Haul Remote 24/7® access for self-storage customers; the Take A Box, Leave A Box program; and more.
Nearby U-Haul stores and neighborhood dealers are available to assist while the Clifton Park facility is under construction. U-Haul of Nashua is open 7 a.m.-7 p.m. Monday-Thursday and Saturday; 7 a.m.-8 p.m. Friday; and 9 a.m.-5 p.m. Sunday. Reserve equipment at uhaul.com or contact Reservations at 1-800-GO-UHAUL.
When the location is fully operational, Chase expects to employ at least eight Team Members. U-Haul will look to hire locally to promote job growth within Nashua.
Acquisition of the property was driven by U-Haul Corporate Sustainability initiatives: U-Haul supports infill developments to help local communities lower its carbon footprint. The adaptive reuse of existing buildings reduces the amount of energy and resources required for new-building materials and helps cities reduce their unwanted inventory of unused buildings.
"This community is growing and there is a need for modern self-storage options," Chase added. "U-Haul is excited to meet the self-storage demands of Nashua."
