ELIZABETH CITY, North Carolina, January 24, 2022 /PRNewswire/ — U-Haul® shares plans for an undeveloped site south of Halstead Blvd. and west of S. Mt. Everest Drive in City of Elizabeth.

U-Haul Moving & Storage City of Elizabeth will be a new retail, moving and self-storage facility slated for completion by 2024. The 18.6-acre property was acquired on January 13.

Plans call for an attractive three-story building covering over 100,000 square feet. The store will offer more than 700 ADA-accessible indoor self-storage rooms with air conditioning options and high-tech security features at affordable prices.

“Our closest full-service store to City of Elizabeth is 37 miles north of Chesapeake, Virginia,” noted Samantha Hopkins, president of the U-Haul Company of Tidewater. “There is a need to provide the convenience of a store to DIY movers in this region. There is a demand for our clean, quality storage product in City of Elizabeth. This building will be the pride of the city and the residents. »

U-Haul Moving & Storage City of Elizabeth will offer an extensive retail showroom, truck and trailer sharing, moving boxes and supplies, towing equipment, professional hitch installation, U-Box portable storage containers ® and more.

During store construction, U-Haul dealers in and around City of Elizabeth are available to serve DIY movers. U-Haul has partnered with independent dealers to provide rental equipment since 1945. In these tough times for small businesses, more than 21,000 dealers in the U.S. and Canada generate additional revenue through their U-Haul partnership. When customers rent from U-Haul dealers, they are directly supporting small businesses in their community. Since no financial investment is required, dealerships are not U-Haul franchises. They are simply small businesses that dedicate their field space to U-Haul equipment and their time to meet customer mobility needs.

That’s where U-Haul comes in. We look forward to expanding our footprint and the number of families we can serve in Pasquotank County.”

As construction nears completion, Hopkins will be hiring for a number of in-store positions and looking to hire locally to promote job growth within City of Elizabeth.
