Moving Detroit: Finishing Touches, New Neighbors 06-10-13

Landscaping 03

The U-Haul Moving and Storage of New Center building is an impressive building, one that catches the eye immediately. We want the rest of the exterior to measure up, so we’re giving the grounds a facelift. We’ve trimmed the trees and cleared away all of the underbrush.

Looking like a center

Showroom 01

The showroom is looking more and more like a real-life U-Haul center. The rest of the menu board signs have been installed, the key-management board has been installed on the back wall and the imaging of the model showrooms is well underway.

Finishing touches

Model Storage Rooms

We continue with the finishing touches to the loading/unloading area. The small loading dock has been painted and the first of three new doors has been installed. The second door will be installed this week.

Foxy neighbors


We have some new neighbors. A red fox and her kits have taken up residence on the East side of the building. They’re shy, so the only way we could get photos, was to shoot through a window.

One more inspection passed

The city inspector was in last week and gave his seal of approval to the HVAC and exhaust-fan system in the showroom and to the roof unit.
