Growing Marietta: U-Haul Adding New Self-Storage, Jobs with Roswell St. Acquisition

MARIETTA, Ga., June 12, 2018 /PRNewswire/ — A state-of-the-art moving and self-storage facility is coming together at 900 Roswell St. in Marietta thanks to U-Haul® Company’s recent acquisition of a 58,551-square-foot building.

U-Haul at Roswell Street opened its temporary showroom in September and is offering truck and trailer sharing, towing equipment, moving supplies and more. There are also 33 self-storage rooms for rent. Once the property is fully repurposed, it will offer an additional 400 climate-controlled self-storage rooms.

Marietta is growing so U-Haul needs to follow,” U-Haul Company of Atlanta West president John Hairston said. “We are eager to finish renovations so we can offer our community the high-quality self-storage and self-move services they require.”

Contact U-Haul at Roswell Street at (770) 428-6220 or stop by to visit general manager Deondrey Gardner and his team. Hours of operation are 7 a.m.-7 p.m. Monday-Thursday and Saturday; 7 a.m.-8 p.m. Friday; and 9 a.m.-5 p.m. Sunday. Reserve equipment at or contact Reservations at 1-800-GO-UHAUL.

In the coming year, U-Haul plans to complete a 5,000-square-foot warehouse space for U-Box portable moving and storage containers. Propane will also be available soon.

Hairston will maintain a staff of eight Team Members when the facility is fully operational. U-Haul will look to hire locally to promote job growth within the Marietta community.

“I ask almost every customer who comes in if they’re looking for work,” Gardner said. “My face is often the first face people see when they move to Marietta and I want them to be welcomed and know they have a trusted neighborhood business.”

The recent acquisition of the Roswell Street property was driven by U-Haul Company’s Corporate Sustainability initiatives: U-Haul supports infill developments to help local communities lower their carbon footprint. Our adaptive reuse of existing buildings reduces the amount of energy and resources required for new-building materials and helps cities reduce their unwanted inventory of unused buildings.
