DAVENPORT, Iowa, Nov. 9, 2015 /PRNewswire/ -- It's almost political moving season for presidential hopefuls with the Iowa caucuses just three months away.

It's always moving season at U-Haul in the Hawkeye State, and one of the Company's latest real estate acquisitions at 3616 W. Kimberly Road in Davenport will have a full range of products and services to offer Iowans from the industry leader in do-it-yourself moving and self-storage.

U-Haul Moving & Storage of Davenport opened in June and is currently offering truck and trailer rentals, towing equipment, moving supplies and U-Box portable moving and self-storage containers. The facility is slated to become a full-service U-Haul store by with roughly 700 new climate-controlled storage units by January, according to general manager Caleb Williams.

The 9.69-acre property features a single-level building that offers 86,448 square feet of space. It was previously home to a K-Mart store.

"We're excited to have the ability to re-use a building that has served the community for many years," said Williams, who noted that the new location has been well received. "We've had many comments that people are glad we've come to Davenport."

The acquisition of the Davenport location 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.
