The former 84 Lumber site in Kingsland, Ga., has been transformed into a Hippo Storage facility, one of two in the area. Both sites offer traditional and climate-controlled self-storage, enclosed RV storage, incubator-style office space, computer-controlled access, and the free use of a moving truck at customer move-in. The new site also offers portable storage.
The locally grown business is owned by Jim, Linda and Michael McClain. The family chose the name during a road trip 10 years ago when they saw two life-sized hippo sculptures on a roadside, noting their size and eye-catching quality.
Opened in 1999, the original Hippo Storage was expanded in 2006 to include covered parking and loading areas with 20-foot-tall units.
