MESA, Ariz., Jan. 23, 2018 /PRNewswire/ -- U-Haul® acquired a 7.82-acre property at 6215 E. Main St. on Nov. 28 and is in the process of finalizing details for a state-of-the-art facility to be crafted there.
U-Haul Moving & Storage of East Mesa currently offers truck and trailer sharing, moving supplies, towing equipment and the Take A Box, Leave A Box program out of a temporary showroom. When renovations are completed, there will be more than 500 indoor climate-controlled self-storage units; U-Haul Remote 24/7® access; top-of-the-line security features; U-Box portable moving and storage containers; professional hitch installation; a U-Haul Re-Use center for gently used household goods and materials; and much more.
"This is a very exciting acquisition for us," said Andy Smith, U-Haul Company of Eastern Arizona president. "East Mesa is saturated with U-Haul neighborhood dealers, but we have been looking for a way to complement their operations with a full-service U-Haul store."
Acquisition of the 67,463-square-foot former shopping complex helps U-Haul address customer demand for more self-storage and self-move services in the growing East Valley.

"The Main Street Plaza was once home to a Fry's® grocery, an antique mall and many other tenants," Smith said. "We're excited to work with our neighbors and to serve as a counterpart to our longstanding U-Haul dealer, M&S Sporting Goods, with whom we are sharing the property."
Acquisition of the Main Street Plaza 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-building materials and helps cities reduce their unwanted inventory of unused buildings.
