8/3/18 – Phoenix-based U-Haul International Inc., which operates more than 1,300 self-storage facilities across North America, has purchased 7.13 acres of land in Wichita, Kan., on which it plans to build a three-story, climate-controlled building. The facility at 600 S. Holland St. is expected to open toward the end of 2019, according to a press release.
Once complete, U-Haul Moving & Storage of West Wichita will comprise about 730 climate-controlled units and 110 traditional drive-up units. It’ll offer moving and packing supplies, hitch installation, propane sales, truck and trailer rentals, towing equipment, vehicle storage, and U-Box portable-storage containers. The site will also feature a U-Haul Re-Use center for sharing boxes and gently used household items.
"It will be exciting when construction is completed and we can offer our state-of-the-art self-storage product," said Aaron Krueger, president of U-Haul Co. of Southern Kansas. "Our dedicated network of U-Haul neighborhood dealers have been serving Wichita's west side since our other facility was closed several years ago. We are looking forward to bringing our high-level service back to this community."
Established in 1945, U-Haul owns more than 44 million square feet of storage space. The company’s corporate sustainability initiatives, which support infill development to help local communities lower their carbon footprint, has led to dozens of conversion projects in recent years.
