U-Haul closes Port Orchard store

soh_uhaul_logoU-Haul closed its Port Orchard location on Sept. 8, just a few months after it opened.

The Olney Avenue U-Haul store shut down because the company was unable to obtain an extension on its contract to purchase the property and its lease ended, according to a news release.

The store had been providing truck and trailer rentals, as well as moving supplies.

South Kitsap residents won’t have to travel far to find U-Haul trucks. The moving and storage giant operates stores in Gorst and Bremerton, and works with several independent dealers in the area.

The county recently approved plans for a large U-Haul self storage center in Gorst.

U-HAUL LOGOA familiar name in moving is putting down roots in Gorst.

U-Haul recently purchased a storage center inside the triangle formed by the junction of Highway 3 and Highway 16.

Now the county has approved a project to expand the existing facility with a three-story, 50,000-square-foot storage building and attached warehouse.

The facility will provide climate-controlled storage and moving vehicle rentals, according to the notice.

Storage facilities seem to be sprouting up all over these days.

Construction on one self storage complex is underway on Randall Way in Silverdale. It’s set to open next winter.

Meanwhile, a Seattle company is considering a three-story facility by Safeway in Poulsbo.

U-Haul moving into Gorst location

U-HAUL LOGOU-Haul is rolling into Gorst.

The moving and storage giant recently bought Bayview Mini Storage, at the intersection of Highway 3 and Highway 16. (The $1.8 million purchase was part of my February commercial sales roundup).

The 4-acre property includes seven one-story self-storage buildings and a 500-square-foot office. There are also 79 RV spaces. The company will offer truck and trailer rentals, storage and U-Box moving and storage services.

U-Haul is touting the purchase as part of its “building green initiative,” which emphasizes infilling existing buildings rather than constructing new facilities.
