 Phoenix-based U-Haul International Inc., which operates more than 1,200 self storage locations across North America, has acquired two Central Storage facilities in Metairie, La. The properties at 3847 Airline Drive and 1019 Central Ave. have been rebranded as U-Haul Storage of Metairie at Airline Hwy. and U-Haul Moving & Storage of Metairie at Central Ave. With a combined 814 units, they serve the communities of Harahan, Jefferson, Metairie and New Orleans, La.

The Airline Highway facility will be operated remotely by the other property and offer 24-hour access. U-Haul is hiring staff for the Central Avenue facility and plans to employ at least 12 people between the two properties. In addition to self storage, the facilities offer moving and packing supplies, and truck and cargo-van rentals.

"[The Airline Highway] location was already a self storage facility and a U-Haul neighborhood dealer, so it's a perfect fit," said Pat Allen, president of the U-Haul Co. of Southern Louisiana. "We have been able to offer management and direction so that we can successfully serve our customers."

The acquisition of both properties was driven by U-Haul’s corporate sustainability initiatives, which support infill development to help local communities lower their carbon footprint, according to a company press release. U-Haul’s adaptive reuse of existing structures eliminates the amount of energy and resources required for new-construction materials and helps local cities diminish their unwanted inventory of unused buildings, U-Haul officials said.

Established in 1945, U-Haul has more than 44 million square feet of storage space at more than 1,200 owned facilities throughout North America.
