POMONA, Calif., July 21, 2016 /PRNewswire/ -- Residents of Pomona seeking more secure and affordable self-storage options will soon have a newly renovated U-Haul facility to meet their needs.
U-Haul Moving & Storage of Pomona at 1315 E. 3rd St. began offering truck and trailer rentals and self-storage in January after acquiring the 8.1-acre property in 2015. Extensive renovations will continue over the next two years as a range of indoor self-storage units – climate-controlled and non-climate-controlled – are constructed.
"People are in desperate need of self-storage in Pomona," U-Haul Company of San Bernardino president Thomas Mitchell said. "Our U-Haul self-storage facilities are constantly full and there is huge customer demand for more. When we are fully operational, we will serve this community with at least 1,000 indoor self-storage units."
Mitchell noted that dozens of local full- and part-time jobs will be created from the acquisition and repurposing of the facility. The 180,000-square-foot building was erected in 1945 and was originally home to Pomona Tile Manufacturing Co.
Stop by U-Haul Moving & Storage of Pomona and or call (909) 784-0863. 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.
"This building was rundown and had been neglected for years," Mitchell said. "It is a huge step forward for this community to see U-Haul assist in the revitalization of downtown. This building deserves to become a beacon of light."
The acquisition of the Pomona 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.
