U-Haul International Inc. is operational since 1945
October 4, 2015: The U-Haul Co. of Texas, which has over 44 million square feet of storage space at more than 1,200 owned facilities throughout North America, recently acquired Speedway Self Storage in Justin, Texas.
The new facility will be renamed as U-Haul Moving & Storage of Justin.
"U-Haul has served the community of Justin for years through our quality independent dealers," said Garner Carey, marketing company president for U-Haul Co. of Northwest Dallas. "With this new location, U-Haul services will expand to include a variety of additional U-Haul products and services while being available seven days a week.”
The self storage
facility contains 70,170 net rentable square feet in more than 550 storage units and 49 RV-parking spaces.
According to a company press release, the company intends to develop additional self-storage and a U-Box portable-storage warehouse, as well as add hitch-and-towing installation and propane services.
According to the release, the acquisition of the property was driven by U-Haul’s corporate sustainability initiatives, which support infill development to help local communities lower their carbon footprint.
U-Haul officials said that, U-Haul’s adaptive reuse of existing structures eliminates the amount of energy and resources required for new-construction materials and helps local cities diminish their unwanted inventory of unused buildings.
