U-Haul of Bridgeport Opens Its Doors for Business in Chicago

May 1, 2015

U-Haul Company of Chicago South and the Southwest Suburbs welcomes its newest U-Haul Store. U-Haul of Bridgeport is located at 431 West Pershing Road, just southwest of U.S. Cellular Field, home of the Chicago White Sox.

This five-story brick building will be converted into a full-service U-Haul Store and currently offers truck and trailer rentals and moving supplies. Plans for this 3.36-acre property also include the addition of climate-controlled self-storage, hitch installation services and propane sales.

Bridgeport5“I am most excited about our new showroom,” stated Angel Lyles, general manager of U-Haul of Bridgeport. “Once it’s complete, we will be able to provide our customers with top-of-the-line equipment and service.”

The acquisition of this vacant building was driven by U-Haul Company’s Corporate Sustainability initiatives: U-Haul supports infill development 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.

Visit U-Haul of Bridgeport for all your moving and storage needs or call (773) 496-4956. Hours of operation are Mon.-Thurs. 7 a.m. – 7 p.m.; Fri. 7 a.m.-8 p.m.; Sat. 7 a.m.-7 p.m.; and Sun. 9 a.m.-5 p.m. Visit us online at uhaul.com or contact U-Haul Reservations, at 1‑800‑GO‑UHAUL.

Every U-Haul truck placed in a community helps keep 19 personally owned large-capacity vehicles, pickups, SUVs and vans off the road. Fewer vehicles means less traffic congestion, less pollution, less fuel burned and cleaner air. Would you like to learn more about U-Haul Company’s Corporate Sustainability initiatives?
