Until recently, U-Haul Moving & Storage of Annapolis at 2115 West Street lacked the space to expand self-storage operations. But thanks to the acquisition of an abutting 3.95-acre property, U-Haul® is growing its self-storage footprint to meet customer demand.
Purchase of the former Extra Space Storage facility gives U-Haul another 44,139 square feet of storage space and 908 more units. U-Haul Moving & Storage of Annapolis has been serving customers since 2019.
"There is a huge demand for self-storage in Maryland's capital," stated Jay Welbourn, U-Haul Company of Baltimore president. "Home to the U.S. Naval Academy, Annapolis sees a lot of fluctuation when it comes to population. People are always on the move. We needed this space to address the growing demand for our storage product."
Welbourn said the expansion will lead to several new job openings at the store. U-Haul will look to hire locally to promote job growth within the Annapolis 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. Find U-Haul careers at uhauljobs.com.
"This is an exciting acquisition for U-Haul," Welbourn said. "We're eager to accommodate more customers and invite the community to come by and see what we're offering."
