A state-of-the-art moving and self storage facility is coming to Sparks thanks to U-Haul® Company's recent land acquisition at the northwest corner of Sha Neva Road and Pyramid Way.

U-Haul Moving & Storage of Spanish Springs will offer truck and trailer sharing, towing equipment, moving supplies, U-Box® portable moving and self storage containers, and much more. There will be 1,000-plus self storage units with climate-control options at affordable price points available for rent.

Also available at the future three-story facility will be professional hitch installation; propane; U-Haul Remote 24/7® access; RV/boat/vehicle storage; a U-Haul Re-Use center for gently used household goods and materials to be shared amongst the community; and the Take A Box, Leave A Box program.

"The Spanish Springs neighborhood is growing, so U-Haul needs to follow," stated Chris Piedra, U-Haul Company of Northern Nevada president. "We are eager to complete this project so we can offer our community a beautiful facility offering the quality self storage and do-it-yourself moving services that our customers have come to expect."

The 109,000 square-foot building is expected to be completed by fall 2019.

"We will be able to help reduce traffic congestion by building a full-service U-Haul facility for this community," Piedra said. "We have a useful product that people want to see ingratiated into the neighborhood. Being part of the Spanish Springs development is important to us."

Piedra expects to hire a staff of 10 or more Team Members when the facility is fully operational. U-Haul will look to hire locally to promote job growth within Sparks. U-Haul always encourages local contractors to bid on construction work.
