PHOENIX, July 26, 2016 /PRNewswire/ -- U-Haul is making moving easier in northwestern Phoenix thanks to the acquisition and adaptive reuse of a former Home Depot® location at 4240 W. Camelback Road.
The property, acquired last December, will be known as U-Haul Moving & Storage at West Camelback Road. It just began offering truck and trailer rentals, moving supplies and hitch accessories out of a temporary showroom.
The 8.25-acre lot is within three miles of Grand Canyon University, allowing the store to cater to the moving and storage demands of college students as well as neighboring communities.
"We will be making improvements on this building for several years so it meets the expectations of our customers," U-Haul Company of Western Arizona president Jason Turcotte said. "We are planning to repair all of the existing building, upgrade the landscaping, add needed lighting, and reimage and paint the exterior."
Contact U-Haul Moving & Storage at West Camelback Road at (602) 714-7386 or stop by to view our line of products and services. 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. Reserve equipment at uhaul.com or contact Reservations at 1-800-GO-UHAUL.
"We are excited to be able to serve this community with a full-line of U-Haul services," Turcotte continued. "We will be adding indoor climate-controlled and non-climate-controlled self-storage, and will ultimately be contributing to the rejuvenation of this area."
Additional details of the self-storage units and other renovations will become available as phases of the project are completed.
The acquisition of the West Camelback Road facility 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.
U-Haul is currently looking to hire locally for this store to promote job growth within the Valley. Turcotte expects to employ at least 10 full- and part-time U-Haul Team Members at the West Camelback Road store once it is fully staffed.
