METAIRIE, La., Sept. 6, 2016 /PRNewswire/ -- U-Haul is now serving do-it-yourself movers and self-storage customers at two former Central Storage facilities located at 1019 Central Ave. and 3847 Airline Drive.
"These locations are convenient for our customers in the Metairie, Harahan, Jefferson and New Orleans areas south of the I-10," U-Haul Company of Southern Louisiana president Pat Allen said. "We will be able to save our customers time and money while providing their belongings a clean, safe and well-maintained environment."
Between the facilities, U-Haul customers now have access to 814 indoor and outdoor self-storage units – both climate-controlled and non-climate controlled – at various sizes and price points.
Contact the Central Avenue store at (504) 737-0916. Hours of operation are from 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.
The Airline Highway store is being operated remotely by the Central Avenue store and offers 24-hour accessibility with top-of-the-line security features for customer convenience. Reserve equipment or your self-storage unit at uhaul.com or contact Reservations at 1-800-GO-UHAUL.
"This location was already a self-storage facility and a U-Haul neighborhood dealer, so it's a perfect fit," Allen added. "We have been able to offer management and direction so that we can successfully serve our customers."
The Central Avenue store is hiring locally to promote job growth within Metairie. U-Haul plans to employ at least 12 Team Members at these stores.
The acquisition of the Metairie stores 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.
