MCKINNEY, Texas, Sept. 28, 2016 /PRNewswire/ -- U-Haul has announced it will continue expanding its McKinney facilities.
U-Haul recently acquired a vacant lot adjacent to U-Haul Moving & Storage of West McKinney at 10061 W. University Drive. The Company will use the land to build a new climate-controlled self-storage facility and add more RV, boat and vehicle storage spaces.
"I am very excited to see the growth in McKinney and the surrounding communities," U-Haul Company of Northwest Dallas president Kevin Lindell said. "We have a great store here already and we are looking forward to expanding the services we can offer."
The 8.5-acre acquisition will complement the store's existing 520 self-storage units as well as the 144 storage spaces at U-Haul RV, Boat and Trailer Storage of West McKinney, located just next door at 10057 W. University Drive.
"There are a lot of families in this area that enjoy camping and being outdoors, but they don't always have the space to maintain the vehicles on their property," Lindell said. "U-Haul is happy to assist those families with secure storage spaces."
Lindell said his fully staffed stores currently employ 25 Team Members, but with the new self-storage building, there will be opportunities for additional hiring. U-Haul aims to hire locally to promote job growth within the communities it serves.
U-Haul Moving & Storage of West McKinney will continue to meet customers' moving and self-storage needs while the abutting property is under construction. Contact the store at (972) 548-1699 or stop by to visit general manager Matt English 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.
