The Johnson City downtown U-Haul company store is moving its operation across town to the former Fun Expedition building on North Roan Street.
U-Haul has been doing business in downtown Johnson City since the early 1980s. In Spring of 2014, U-Haul commissioned Mitch Cox Construction to renovate the game center into a 71,340 total square footage professional facility outfitted to feature U-Haul products and services.
The main building (66K square feet) will feature climate controlled self-storage, a showroom, and towing systems installation bays. Additional warehouse space will be designated to introduce U-Haul’s latest product line: the U-Box, a portable moving and storage pod solution, able to fit a room and a half of household items.
Phase 1 renovation is scheduled to be completed well before the New Year with demolition having already begun last month. Consecutive phases will add value to the operation over the next couple years, such as the addition of over 1,400 storage units.
Clay McQuade, president of U-Haul Company of Knoxville, is glad to have the Mitch Cox team working on this project. He said, “With the move from downtown, speed is everything. Knowing the past work and reputation of Mitch Cox Construction, I look forward to the expediency they provide.”
Johnson City U-Haul is located at 2805 N. Roan Street and can be reached by phone at 423-218-1806.
