Moove In Self Storage, which operators 12 facilities in Pennsylvania, has acquired Centerville Self Storage in Lancaster, Pa. The company now has seven locations in Lancaster County.
“Centerville Self Storage was a key acquisition for us,” said John H. Gilliland, president and CEO for Moove In Self Storage. Due to demand, the company was in the process of constructing an additional single-story building at its facility at 220 Centerville Road when Centerville Self Storage became available to purchase.
“Adding 400 drive-up units to our inventory through an acquisition will help us better serve the current demand in the market,” Gilliland said.
Moove In Self Storage plans to invest about $350,000 in property upgrades, including adding new insulated roofs, repair and replacement of the unit doors, a keypad-operated gate, and pavement repairs. The company has already invested $850,000 to upgrade the other property at 220 Centerville Road. The renovations included a new office, additional temperature-controlled units, security fencing and gates, landscaping, and paving upgrades.
Once the renovations are complete at both properties, the locations will offer 807 units and 65 exterior parking spaces between them. They will be managed from one rental office at the 220 Centerville Road facility by an onsite property manager.
Moove In Self Storage operates facilities in Huntingdon, Lancaster and York counties. In addition to self-storage, the properties also offer locks, boxes, and moving and packing supplies as well as Penske truck rentals.
