HANOVER PARK, Ill., March 14, 2017 /PRNewswire/ -- Hanover Park residents have relied on their local U-Haul store at 4N275 84th Court for do-it-yourself moving and self-storage for 23 years.
Until recently, U-Haul Moving & Storage of Stratford Square lacked the space to grow and offer more climate-controlled self-storage options. But that is changing thanks to the acquisition of the 1.53-acre property next door at 4N221 84th Court.
"We are excited to reveal the plans for U-Haul Moving & Storage of Stratford Square II," said Angela Farley, U-Haul Company of Chicago Western Suburbs president. "Climate-controlled self-storage is a much-needed service that our customers demand. This is going to be huge for Hanover Park."
There will be 112 climate-controlled self-storage rooms at the new facility when renovations are completed this spring. A 2,189-square-foot showroom at U-Haul Moving & Storage of Stratford Square II replaces a much smaller showroom at the original store and offers customers access to a full line of moving supplies.
Contact U-Haul Moving & Storage of Stratford Square at (630) 682-8146 or stop by to visit general manager Jeffrey Mott and his team. Hours of operation are 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.
"This will be a one-stop shop for moving and self-storage," Farley said. "There isn't a lot of climate-controlled storage in this area, so we are excited to bring our state-of-the-art technology, security and affordability to these customers."
Farley said the expansion will lead to several new positions at the store. U-Haul will look to hire locally to promote job growth within the Hanover Park community.
The recent acquisition of the new Stratford Square property was driven by U-Haul Company's Corporate Sustainability initiatives: U-Haul® supports infill developments 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.
