GILLETTE, Wyo. (Oct. 21, 2021) — A new U-Haul® retail, moving and self-storage facility is coming to an undeveloped site at 1125 Boxelder Road in Gillette.
U-Haul Moving & Storage of Gillette is scheduled for completion by 2023. Plans call for an attractive three-story structure encompassing more than 100,000 square feet. The store will offer 700-plus indoor, ADA-accessible self-storage rooms with climate-control options and high-tech security features at affordable price points.
“Our closest U-Haul-owned and -operated facility to Gillette is over 100 miles away in Casper,” said Paul Johnson, U-Haul Company of Wyoming president. “Opening a convenient self-move facility with state-of-the-art storage is important to meet customer demand. There is insufficient high-quality storage in this region. We hope to change that with a beautiful store that will make the city and local residents proud.”
There is currently a temporary retail showroom with boxes and moving supplies, U-Haul truck and trailer sharing, and more. U-Haul acquired the property on July 23.
Contact U-Haul Moving & Storage of Gillette at (307) 696-2054. Hours of operation are 8 a.m.-5 p.m. Monday-Saturday. Reserve equipment at uhaul.com or contact Reservations at 1-800-GO-UHAUL.
Once the facility is completed, customers will have access to U-Box® portable storage containers, outdoor drive-up storage and covered RV and vehicle parking. The current network of U-Haul neighborhood dealers will also continue to serve the Gillette community’s moving needs.
“The Gillette community has doubled in size over the last decade,” Johnson said. “Housing prices in Gillette are reasonable, so the area is attractive. People will always need residential mobility, and that’s where U-Haul comes in. We look forward to expanding our services in northeast Wyoming.”
When construction nears completion, Johnson will look to hire staff locally to promote job growth within the Gillette community. U-Haul, honored as a “Best for Vets 2020” leading veteran-friendly employer by The Military Times, actively recruits veterans and gives them preference in the hiring process.
