U-Haul has over 44 million square feet of storage space at over 1,200 owned facilities throughout North America
U-Haul Moving & Storage of West Irondequoit at 1106 E. Ridge Road currently offers moving and packing supplies, truck and trailer rentals, and U-Box portable-storage containers.
According to a press release, construction of a new showroom in the 60,000-square-foot building is nearly complete, and renovations are underway to add 570 climate-controlled storage units.
Irondequoit, which is just north of Rochester, N.Y., has seen a resurgence of new businesses. “This area is really starting to grow quickly. It's exciting to be able to offer a state-of-the-art storage facility not previously seen in this community,” Schnitzer said.
The three-story building that formerly housed Katz Floor Coverings and Carpet had been vacant for several years, the release stated. “The Town of Irondequoit was ecstatic with our refurbishing of what had become an eyesore in the community. The town is working with us and loves the planned renovations,” said Todd Schnitzer, president of the U-Haul Co. of Western New York.
The release stated that, the opening of the Irondequoit property was driven by U-Haul’s corporate sustainability initiatives, which support infill development to help local communities lower their carbon footprint.
