The U-Haul Co. of Texas recently acquired Speedway Self Storage in Justin, Texas. The 6.94-acre property at 16300 FM 156 S. has been rebranded as U-Haul Moving & Storage of Justin. The facility comprises 70,170 net rentable square feet in more than 550 storage units and 49 RV-parking spaces.
The facility, one mile northwest of the Texas Motor Speedway, also offers truck and trailer rentals and sells boxes and other moving supplies. The company plans to develop additional self-storage and a U-Box portable-storage warehouse, as well as add hitch-and-towing installation and propane services, according to a company press release.
"U-Haul has served the community of Justin for years through our quality independent dealers," said Garner Carey, marketing company president for U-Haul Co. of Northwest Dallas. "With this new location, U-Haul services will expand to include a variety of additional U-Haul products and services while being available seven days a week.”
The acquisition of the property was driven by U-Haul’s corporate sustainability initiatives, which support infill development to help local communities lower their carbon footprint, according to the release. U-Haul’s adaptive reuse of existing structures 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 44 million square feet of storage space at more than 1,200 owned facilities throughout North America.
