Phoenix-based U-Haul International Inc., which operates more than 1,500 self-storage facilities across North America, has acquired two neighboring Sunny’s Self Storage facilities in Newfield, N.Y. Together, the properties at 1273 and 1399 W. Danby Road contain 419 units. They offer climate-controlled units, moving and packing supplies, and trailer and truck rentals. U-Haul Moving & Storage of Newfield will be operated remotely by U-Haul of Ithaca, according to a press release.
“These locations are close to Ithaca College and Cornell University, and are convenient for our customers in the Finger Lakes region,” said Andrew Sciortino, president of the U-Haul Co. of North Central New York. “We will be able to save our customers time and money while providing a clean, secure and well-maintained environment for their possessions to be stowed.”
U-Haul recently purchased a newly built facility in Glendale, Ariz., for $10.05 million. The property opened in May and comprises 80,000 square feet of space in 784 units.
Established in 1945, U-Haul owns more than 32 million square feet of storage space. The company’s corporate sustainability initiatives, which support infill development to help local communities lower their carbon footprint, has led to dozens of conversion projects in recent years.
