FRANKFORT, Ill., June 11, 2024 /PRNewswire/ -- U-Haul® has acquired the former Saunoris' Garden Center property at 19600 S. Harlem Ave. in Frankfort to better meet the moving and self-storage needs of Will County.

The 6.88-acre property, now U-Haul Moving & Storage of Frankfort Square, was purchased on June 3 and will be the first U-Haul-owned and -operated center in the Village of Frankfort, located 28 miles south of Chicago and conveniently tucked just minutes away from Interstates 80 and 57.

Many services will be available starting in August. The location will offer a retail showroom with truck and trailer sharing, boxes and moving supplies, and more.

Plans call for the creation of a three-story, 94,764-square-foot building with a mix of 937 indoor climate-controlled self-storage rooms and drive-up storage units with high-tech security features at affordable price points.

Once the building is ready, customers will have access to towing equipment and professional hitch installation, propane, and green initiatives like a Re-Use Center and the Take A Box, Leave A Box program. There will also be a U-Box® warehouse to hold up to 1,000 portable moving and storage containers.
