Tis the Season for U-Haul Self-Storage

Dec 11, 2015

The stockings are hung from the chimney with care, in hopes that St. Nicholas soon would be there … carrying dozens of presents … for which you have no room.

And what about those darling gifts you purchased for family members? Closets filling up as you try to hide them? Running out of storage space?

Well, Merry Christmas. U-Haul offers numerous self-storage options that could prove very useful during the holiday season.

U-Haul Storage

U-Haul offers numerous storage options to meet your needs

“I believe most customers are surprised when they discover the amount of different options we offer for storage,” said Nestor Ruiz, general manager of U-Haul Moving & Storage at 24th and McDowell in Phoenix, Ariz. “One nice option is our storage does not require a deposit, making unexpected moves easier and storage a possibility for any family.”

If you have a college student coming home for winter break and nowhere to store his or her valuables, U-Haul self-storage is a phone call away to help ease the stress during this hectic time of year. In fact, you can utilize collegeboxes.com, which is the No. 1 student storage and shipping provider in the U.S.

Considered the revolution in storage today is the U-Box portable moving and self-storage container, with on-site and secure warehouse storage options. It fits about a room-and-a-half of household items. If you got it into your house, you can get it into a U-Box container. With 257 cubic feet of space and one-ton capacity, U-Box containers are delivered to and picked up at your door and can be packed on your time frame.

You have something larger to store? Something with tires and a motor, perhaps, that the driveway cannot accommodate?

“My favorite storage option is RV and vehicle storage, because it gives our customers a secure location besides their homes to store their recreational vehicles with ease,” Ruiz said.

Rv boat parking

RV, boat and vehicle parking is available through many U-Haul stores and dealers.

RV, boat and vehicle parking spaces can be open, covered or enclosed. Customers can opt for spaces constructed on bare ground, permeable ground cover or pavement. Each vehicle space is typically at least 12 feet wide and, wherever possible, 20 feet long.

If quick, easy access is what you need, U-Haul outdoor drive-up storage units may be exactly what you are seeking. They have garage-style, roll-up doors and are on street level. Besides the easy access, drive-up units also offer extended-hours access.

“U-Haul options include 24-hour access or extended access for people with odd work schedules,” Ruiz noted. “We provide online account management and 24-hour maximum security with video monitoring.”

Interior storage units can be rented in all sizes (depending on the location) with options such as climate-controlled or non-climate controlled, heated, stacked locker units … or you can just rent an entire warehouse.

“It’s extremely important for customers making last-minute moves or customers that just require extra space at home, U-Haul makes their storage experience easy as a one-stop shop,” Ruiz noted.

Wine Storage

Wine storage is available at some U-Haul stores.

If you plan on hosting big groups over the Christmas holiday, you might want to consider the U-Haul wine storage option. The wine lockers were built specifically to facilitate proper storing of a wine collection. The temperature is maintained at 55 degrees and a backup generator is on site in case of a long-term power outage. In addition to the temperature, the humidity, which should be kept between 65-75 percent, also is maintained and logged at various times of the day to ensure its accurate.

Any storage option U-Haul offers can be managed via webselfstorage.com. You don’t even need to leave the comfort of your home to check the status of your self-storage unit or pay your monthly bill.

U-Haul keeps its promise to provide clean, dry, and secure self-storage for any need that may arise. Even if it’s just surviving until Santa’s next visit.
