NORTH RANDALL, Ohio, May 17, 2018 /PRNewswire/ -- A state-of-the-art self-storage facility is coming to the old OrangeOnions warehouse at 21930 Miles Road in North Randall thanks to U-Haul® Company's recent acquisition.
U-Haul Moving & Storage of South Beachwood is currently offering truck and trailer sharing, as well as moving supplies, out of a new showroom. Once the property is repurposed, it will boast more than 800 indoor self-storage units for rent. There will be options of heated, climate-control, and non-climate-control rooms with high-tech security features at affordable price points. Towing equipment, professional hitch installation, propane and a covered load/unload area for self-storage customers will also be available.
In addition to traditional self-storage rooms, U-Haul will allocate warehouse space to stow more than 100 U-Box portable moving and storage containers. There are 90 outdoor self-storage units as well. These options provide immediate and secure on-site storage for customers while self-storage rooms are being built.

"We've been working to expand our operations in Cuyahoga County for years. We are thrilled to move on to the next step," said Scott Ochocki, U-Haul Company of Cleveland president. "This space will fit our needs perfectly to meet customer demand. We're excited for the opportunity to serve the North Randall community for years to come."
Ochocki expects to employ a staff of 10 or more when the facility is fully operational. U-Haul will look to hire locally to promote job growth in North Randall. U-Haul always encourages local contractors to bid on renovation work.
The recent acquisition of the North Randall property 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.
"People were worried this large property would become an eyesore if left vacant," Ochocki said. "We look forward to beautifying the site and being part of the glue that holds this community together – all while meeting a basic need for our neighbors seeking self-move and self-storage services."
