“We are excited to have the opportunity to expand our presence in Largo and look forward to continuing our long-standing relationships with local communities throughout our state,” stated Bob Magyar, president, U-Haul Company of Tampa.

“With the opportunity to expand U-Haul self-storage operations, we are better equipped to meet our customers’ current and future needs,” Magyar continued. “Families needing the finest in moving services now will have increased convenience and a shorter distance to travel when moving and storing their goods, which not only will make their move easier but also will have the positive effect of reducing the amount of carbon emissions released into the atmosphere,” he noted.

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. 

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