1,350 Indoor Self-Storage Rooms with Climate-Control Options Available Soon
SUNSET, Utah, Jan. 24, 2018 /PRNewswire/ -- U-Haul® is working to bring customers a contemporary self-storage facility at 1200 N. Main St. in Sunset thanks to the recent acquisition of a former Sierra RV® showroom. U-Haul acquired the 21,980-square-foot facility on Aug. 21.
U-Haul Moving & Storage of Hill Field is currently operating out of a temporary showroom and offering truck and trailer sharing, moving supplies, towing equipment, the Take A Box, Leave A Box program, RV, boat and vehicle storage and U-Box portable moving and storage containers.
Once the property is repurposed, it will boast approximately 1,350 self-storage units with high-tech security features and indoor climate-control options at affordable price points. U-Haul Remote 24/7® access, propane and professional hitch installation will also be offered on the 13.22-acre site, which is located along the west side of Interstate 15 and Hill Air Force Base near exit 335.
"We will have a full range of customers, from the men and women in uniform serving at Hill Air Force Base, to Weber State University students and residents of surrounding neighborhoods," said Brad Ling, U-Haul Company of Utah president. "This facility gives us the ability to meet the self-move and self-storage needs of Sunset more effectively."
Contact U-Haul Moving & Storage of Hill Field at (801) 773-8295 or stop by to visit general manager David Woolsey and his team. Hours of operation are 7 a.m.-7 p.m. Monday-Thursday and Saturday; 7 a.m.-8 p.m. Friday; and 9 a.m.-5 p.m. Sunday. Reserve equipment at uhaul.com or contact Reservations at 1-800-GO-UHAUL.
Ling expects to hire a staff of 15 or more Team Members when the facility is fully operational. U-Haul will look to hire locally to promote job growth within Sunset community. U-Haul always encourages local contractors to bid on construction work.
"Sierra RV expanded operations about a year ago and left this building empty," Ling said. "I'm excited to take this property to the next level by repurposing the existing structure and adding an additional space for self-storage."
The recent acquisition of the Sunset facility was driven by U-Haul Company's Corporate Sustainability initiatives: U-Haul supports infill developments to help local communities lower their carbon footprint. Our adaptive reuse of existing buildings reduces the amount of energy and resources required for new-construction materials and helps cities reduce their unwanted inventory of unused buildings.
