U-Haul owns more than 44 million square feet of storage space
August 23, 2017: Established in 1945, Phoenix-based U-Haul International Inc., which manages over 1,300 self-storage locations across North America, is converting a former office building in Colorado Springs, Colo., to self-storage.
U-Haul plans to recruit 15 employees once the facility is fully operational, said Dave Hellmers, president of the U-Haul Co. of Southern Colorado. "This property had a bad reputation because it was always changing and nothing really stuck,” he added. “Utilizing this space will provide a much-needed product and service to this part of Colorado Springs while also helping the community with its goal to be more sustainable."
U-Haul Moving & Storage at Tiffany Square has a temporary showroom offering moving and packing supplies, trailer and truck rentals, towing equipment, and U-Box portable-storage containers. Renovations are underway to add more than 400 indoor climate-controlled storage units in varying sizes. Professional hitch installation and covered vehicle storage will be added later, the source stated.
