U-Haul Moving & Storage of Clarkdale is scheduled for completion by summer 2026. The 9.18-acre property was acquired May 24 and will be the first U-Haul-owned and -operated center in Clarkdale.

Plans call for a three-story building with a spacious retail showroom and more than 700 indoor, climate-controlled self-storage units with high-tech security features at affordable price points. Customers will also have access to truck and trailer sharing, towing equipment and professional hitch installation, boxes and moving supplies, and more. There will also be a U-Box® warehouse to house portable storage containers.

Jessup plans to hire up to 14 Team Members to staff the new store when ready. U-Haul will look to hire locally to promote job growth in the Clarkdale community. U-Haul, honored as a Best for Vets employer by The Military Times, actively recruits veterans and gives them preference in the hiring process. Find U-Haul careers at uhauljobs.com.

"We are excited to be part of the Clarkdale community, which is known for its rich history as a mining town," said James Jessup, U-Haul Company of Northern Arizona president. "There is a lot of new growth occurring in this beautiful area of our state. It gives U-Haul the opportunity to meet growing customer demand for convenient moving and storage solutions."

Until the Clarkdale store is ready, customers can find U-Haul moving and self-storage services just three miles away at U-Haul Moving & Storage of Verde Valley at 1650 E. Cherry St. in Cottonwood.

U-Haul continues to benefit the environment through its shared-use business model. Truck and trailer sharing enables communities to share moving equipment so that families and individuals don't need to own large-capacity vehicles to transfer belongings. Sustainability initiatives like U-Haul Adaptive Reuse (the preserving and repurposing of existing buildings for new stores), truck modifications to improve fuel economy, and plastic Ready-To-Go Boxes® that are shared hundreds of times before being recycled are among the many ways U-Haul promotes green business. U-Box Load Share, the Company's latest sustainability program, was just named the 2023 Best in Biz gold winner for the Most Environmentally Friendly Service of the Year.
