MEMPHIS, Tenn. — (April 15, 2010) The U-Haul Company of Memphis today announced expansion of the Mendenhall Road U-Haul Storage Center, 3551 Mendenhall, through the purchase of a former restaurant located adjacent to the center. U-Haul will relocate the center’s showroom to the newly acquired property in order to provide increased customer convenience and easier access to the location.

The Mendenhall Road U-Haul Storage Center will be selling a wide variety of environmentally friendly packing supplies: boxes made out of recyclable materials, 100 percent biodegradable packing peanuts and moving pads made from recycled denim.

Also on site will be a Take A Box/Leave a Box display, which allows customers or anyone in the community to leave moving boxes or unwanted electronics boxes for another customer to reuse for free, instead of throwing them away or recycling them.

“We are pleased to be increasing our visibility and updating the look of the Mendenhall Road U-Haul Storage Center, and look forward to continuing our long-standing relationship with the local community in Memphis” stated Carol George, president of UHaul Company of Memphis. “Moreover, this expansion will allow us to be better equipped to meet our customers’ current and future needs,” George added.

The Mendenhall Road U-Haul Storage Center Features feature 24-hour security with electronically controlled access, state-of-the-art digital video surveillance, your lock/your key, both climate- and nonclimate-controlled storage rooms, FREE use of storage carts, no deposit or administration fees, a convenient credit-card payment plan and available low-cost Safestor Protection to help safeguard personal possessions.

Customers who rent a U-Haul moving van or trailer for a one-way move can receive one month of free storage before or after their move.

Customers can rent storage from more than 1,091 U-Haul owned storage facilities across the United States and Canada by calling their neighborhood U-Haul center, visiting www.uhaul.com or contacting the U-Haul national reservation system, at 1-800-GO-UHAUL.
