U-Haul International Inc. recently acquired the former Debonis Storage and RV facility in Rio Rancho, N.M., and has rebranded it as U-Haul Moving and Storage of West Rio Rancho. The property at 1101 Veranda Drive consists of five single-story buildings on 5.74 acres of land.
The company plans to make several improvements to the property, including the addition of a two-story retail showroom and hitch bays.
“This is a growing community, and I am honored to be able to say that our U-Haul team will be experiencing this growth with our customers,” says Sabrina Montoya, general manager.
The acquisition of Debonis Storage and RV was driven by U-Haul’s corporate sustainability initiatives, which supports infill development to help local communities lower their carbon footprint, according to a company press release. U-Haul’s adaptive reuse of existing buildings eliminates the amount of energy and resources required for new-construction materials and helps local cities diminish their unwanted inventory of unused buildings, U-Haul officials said.
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.
