NIAGARA FALLS, Ontario, Feb. 3, 2015 /CNW/ -- U-Haul Company of Hamilton is pleased to bring U-Haul products and services back to Niagara Falls. Twenty-five years ago, U-Haul operated in Niagara Falls on Lundy's Lane… and now opened a facility at 4605 Kent Avenue. The new facility, U-Haul Moving and Storage of Niagara Falls at Kent Avenue, is located off of Queen Elizabeth Way between the Thorold Stone Road and Dorchester Road exits and can be easily seen when going to or coming from New York. Approximately 62,000 vehicles pass in front of this facility daily.
U-Haul Moving and Storage of Niagara Falls at Kent Avenue is situated on 2.99 acres of land with a one-story concrete building featuring 55,323 square feet of building space. Formerly The Autodream Group, this U-Haul location is renting trucks, trailers and U-Box moving and self-storage units, along with selling moving supplies. Future plans for this facility include the addition of approximately 700 self-storage units.
John Fisher, marketing company president of U-Haul Company of Hamilton, is excited to have U-Haul back in Niagara Falls and has received a warm welcome from the community.
"We are able to keep a greater amount of equipment in the area," Fisher explained. "All of the retailers around us are happy to see a large brand-name company come to the area. We will be the first truly climate-controlled self-storage facility in the Niagara Falls area. We are very excited to be able to offer more products and services to meet the needs of the community."
"This is area is the gateway to Niagara Falls, the 'Honeymoon Capital of the World' and home to the world-famous Niagara Wineries and Ice Wines," noted Paul Chalmers, U-Haul field relief manager. "We couldn't be in a better location as almost everyone that comes to Niagara Falls will be welcomed by the sight of U-Haul Moving and Storage of Niagara Falls at Kent Avenue as they pass by on the Queen Elizabeth Way highway. It's a homecoming, since we left here in the early 1990's and have now returned. It is very interesting hearing long-time U-Haul Team members coming into the new location and sharing stories of the old Lundy's Lane location. They are happy to have us back in the area!"
The acquisition of The Autodream Group was driven by U-Haul Company's Corporate Sustainability initiatives: U-Haul supports infill development to help local communities lower their carbon footprint. Our adaptive reuse of existing buildings reduces the amount of energy and resources required for new-construction materials and helps cities reduce their unwanted inventory of unused buildings.
