ORONO, Maine (July 25, 2019) — U-Haul® recently acquired the former Kelley Road Self Storage facility at 130 Kelley Road in Orono to better meet the moving and self-storage demands of local residents and University of Maine students.

U-Haul Storage of Orono is located three miles from campus and offers U-Haul Truck Share 24/7®, moving supplies, uncovered vehicle storage and 126 drive-up self-storage units with security features and affordable pricing. U-Haul acquired the facility on May 3.

“This location was already a self-storage facility, so it’s a seamless transition,” said Shawn Goldrup, U-Haul Company of Maine president. “We’re pleased to offer our trusted product and service to our neighbors in Orono, including the thousands of college students just up the road.”
