DURANGO – A contemporary U-Haul retail and self-storage facility is coming to Durango thanks to a 5-acre land acquisition south of Wilson Gulch Drive and north of the U.S. Highway 160 exit ramp.
U-Haul Moving & Storage of Durango, scheduled for completion by 2023, will include a three-story building encompassing more than 80,000 square feet.
The facility will house more than 500 indoor, Americans with Disabilities Act-accessible self-storage units with climate-control options and high-tech security features. U-Haul acquired the property Oct. 1.
“Durango hasn’t had a U-Haul-owned and -operated self-storage facility,” said Dave Hellmers, U-Haul Company of Southern Colorado president. “Our customers have been driving across the state line into New Mexico to gain access to U-Haul storage. Developing this land will translate to greater convenience for Durango residents, and enable us to meet growing demand.”
U-Haul Moving & Storage of Durango will offer a retail showroom, truck and trailer sharing, boxes and moving supplies, towing equipment and professional hitch installation, propane, U-Box portable storage containers and more.
“Durango is one of the most beautiful cities in America, and U-Haul is excited to invest in its future,” Hellmers said. “We’re working with city officials and our neighbors to improve access to residential mobility and self-storage. This facility will benefit everyone for many years.”
