A flood-mitigation project in Johnson City, Tenn., forced U-Haul Moving and Storage of Downtown to find a new home after 30 years at its location. The self-storage business has moved to 2805 N. Roan St., which most recently housed the Fun Expedition game center. Prior to that, it operated as a Lowe’s Home Improvement store.
The property includes 9.59 acres of land and a combined 91,250 square feet of building space. It includes two single-story buildings, one with 71,340 square feet and another with 12,028 square feet. A third single-story, semi-open building has 7,882 square feet of space.
A conversion is underway to add self-storage, hitch sales and the introduction of U-Haul's newest product line, a U-Box warehouse. The facility will operate as U-Haul Moving and Storage of Johnson City. Currently, rental trucks, trailers and U-Box portable storage are available to customers.
“We were happy to find a suitable location that enables us to continue serving the residents of Johnson City," said Clay McQuade, marketing president of U-Haul Co. of Knoxville.
Established in 1945, U-Haul International Inc. has more than 40 million square feet of storage space at more than 1,000 owned and managed facilities throughout North America.
