Help Guilford Secure a New U-Haul Self-Storage Facility

This petition had 199 supporters

U-Haul aims to transform an aging, drab property into a full-service moving and storage campus featuring an attractive new three-story building to enhance Boston Post Road in Guilford.

But before the iconic American company moves forward with its latest state-of-the-art moving and storage center, U-Haul is asking for the town’s support to help make this needed project an easy decision for the Guilford Planning and Zoning Commission.

At present, U-Haul Moving & Storage of Guilford operates in a limited capacity out of the old Mannix Chevrolet and Grass Island Flea Market store just south of I-95 at the corner of Tanner Marsh Road. But if approved for self-storage, U-Haul plans to purchase the property, renovate the current one-story building for its showroom, and construct a new three-story facility on an adjacent open lot that will include 450 indoor self-storage rooms with climate-control options, state-of-the-art security features and U-Haul Remote 24/7® accessibility.

The project should be completed within one year of approval, making self-storage available in late 2018. In addition, U-Haul will incorporate all of the bells and whistles associated with its full-service locations: U-Haul Truck Share 24/7, trailers, moving supplies, towing equipment, professional hitch installation, U-Box portable storage containers and more.

The nearest U-Haul self-storage facility is currently in Hamden, 14 miles northwest across I-95 and I-91 near Wilbur Cross Parkway. U-Haul wishes to provide Guilford with the convenience, commitment and affordability that comes with its own moving and storage campus, and improve the look of Boston Post Road in the process.

The Design Review Committee will meet with U-Haul in October, followed by a date later this year for Planning and Zoning Commission to review the proposal. Let your city officials know you support enhancing Guilford and bringing needed services to town by signing our petition!
