U-Haul Co. of Fargo has opened a rental facility in a converted building in Williston, N.D., that will eventually offer self-storage and U-Box portable storage. The 5,124-square-foot building at 5125 Frontage Road W. has been rebranded as U-Haul Moving and Storage of Williston. Customers can currently rent trucks and trailers, and purchase moving supplies, company officials said in a press release.
"This region has experienced an extreme population increase, making Williston one of the fastest growing areas in North America," said Shawn Odden, marketing company president of U-Haul Co. of Fargo. "By having U-Haul services available, we are able to help more people move in and around the area. We are excited to assist this growing area with all of its moving and storage needs."
The Williston facility is on 3.13 acres. Other recent U-Haul self-storage conversion projects have included the transformation of a former Walmart in Arkansas, a cotton mill in North Carolina and a game center in Tennessee.
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.
