Compass Self Storage, a member of the Amsdell family of companies, has acquired Brightwood Self Storage in Whitsett, N.C. It’s the company’s fourth location in the state and its 10th acquisition of 2017, according to a press release. The site was purchased by separate affiliates of Amsdell Group LLC and Compass Self Storage LLC and will be rebranded under the Compass name.
The property at 6605 Burlington Road comprises more than 70,000 net rentable square feet of climate-controlled and drive-up storage space. Compass plans to add a two-story building containing 49,000 square feet of climate-controlled storage, expected to open in January. Additional upgrades will include a new access-control and security system. The facility currently offers a retail office that sells moving and packing supplies, and truck rentals.
“We are proud to expand our service area in North Carolina to include the residents and businesses of the Whitsett community. We look forward to providing great customer service, and to making moving and storing with Compass Self Storage an easy process,” said Todd Amsdell, president.
