Lakeside Budget Storage, a self-storage facility in Sterling Heights, Mich., was recently named the No. 1 dealer in the nation for truck and trailer rentals by U-Haul International Inc., which has a network of more than 21,000 locations in North America. Although the property at 13120 Hall Road received the accolade, two of its three sister sites also placed on the U-Haul top 100, according to the source.
“This is an amazing achievement, since U-Haul has over 20,000 dealers,” said Sid Moss, facility co-owner. “The Lakeside team is committed to excellence, and this honor is proof of their hard work and dedication.”
The Lakeside staff is led by general manager Nancy Card and includes Brandon Allen, Tara Bogar, Charlene Doeren and Raquel Monte.
America’s Budget Storage, the company’s Canton, Mich., location, ranked No. 18 on the list. The rank for a new Clarkston, Mich., location, which was acquired just last fall, was not revealed. A third sister site, Portage Budget Storage, was not mentioned in relation to the list.
The increase in truck and trailer rentals demonstrates an uptick in the Michigan economy, Moss said. “Most of our U-Haul rentals are round-trip, meaning that customers are using the vehicles to move things locally, not out of state.”
In addition to its self-storage facilities, the company operates Express Shipping of Sterling Heights, Mich.
Established in 1945, U-Haul owns more than 51 million square feet of storage space at owned and managed facilities in North America. Its fleet includes 150,000 trucks, 112,000 trailers and 40,000 towing devices.
