AMERCO Real Estate celebrated the grand opening Wall Avenue U-Haul Center in Ogden, Utah, Dec. 21. The 36,950-square-foot facility has 449 storage units, 432 of which are climate controlled.
U-Haul purchased the building in April, retrofitting and redesigning it to fit the U-Haul brand.
The facility also has several sustainable elements, including lighting and a self-storage reuse center to provide customers with a location to donate unwanted, gently used household goods, furniture, sporting equipment and clothing for other customers to take for free.
The facility will also sell environmentally friendly packing supplies including boxes made out of recyclable materials, 100 percent biodegradable packing peanuts and moving pads made from recycled denim.
In addition, the location will participate in U-Haul’s Take A Box/Leave a Box program, which allows anyone to leave moving boxes or unwanted electronics boxes for another customer to reuse for free.
AMERCO Real Estate Company, an affiliate of U-Haul International Inc., provides real estate services to AMERCO subsidiaries that include more than 1,350 U-Haul moving and storage centers throughout the United States and Canada.
