FORT LAUDERDALE, Fla.,
Feb. 18, 2020 /PRNewswire/ --
Fort Lauderdale residents have
called on the U-Haul store at 1840 W. State Road 84 for their
do-it-yourself moving products and services since 1992.
Until recently, U-Haul at I-95 & State Road 84 lacked the
space to offer self-storage services. But thanks to the recent
acquisition of a 0.88-acre abutting property east of the store,
U-Haul is now adding storage options.
Construction plans for the abutting property call for the
creation of a six-story, state-of-the-art self-storage building.
The first floor will feature a drive-up load/unload area so
customers can protect their belongings from the weather.
"There is a huge demand for self-storage in Fort Lauderdale, so we need to expand to meet
that demand," said Frank Grau,
U-Haul Company of Fort Lauderdale
president. "We look forward to offering a range of options,
including indoor climate-controlled units with high-tech security

One dilapidated shed on the abutting property will be removed
prior to construction of the new building. Approximately 800
self-storage units at affordable price points will be available
when the facility is completed in 2021.
"The abutting property to the east of our facility was becoming
an eyesore," Grau added. "It will be something U-Haul and the
City of Fort Lauderdale can be
proud of when we're done with the expansion."
Once the facility is operating with the self-storage addition,
Grau expects to hire additional Team Members. U-Haul will look to
hire locally to promote job growth in the Fort Lauderdale area.
U-Haul at I-95 & State Road 84 will continue to offer truck
and trailer sharing, moving supplies and boxes, towing equipment,
professional hitch installation, U-Box portable moving and storage
containers, propane and more.
