The U-Haul Co. of Inland Northwest opened U-Haul Moving and Storage of Coeur d'Alene in Idaho. The facility, 750 W. Appleway Ave., celebrated the grand opening Wednesday in an official ribbon-cutting ceremony. Mayor Sandi Bloem attended, along with John Eide, president of U-Haul Company of Inland Northwest. The event also included a barbecue lunch and tours of the facility.
The 67,300-square-foot facility has 720 storage units. The building was retrofitted and redesigned with sustainability in mind. The lighting was changed to sustainable lighting, and U-Haul Moving and Storage of Coeur d'Alene also sells a wide variety of environmentally friendly packing supplies including boxes made out of recyclable materials, 100 percent biodegradable packing peanuts and moving pads made from recycled denim. Also available is the Take a Box/Leave a Box display, which allows customers or anyone in the community to leave moving boxes or unwanted electronics boxes for another customer to reuse for free.
