DAPHNE, Ala., July 20, 2022 /PRNewswire/ -- A contemporary U-Haul® retail, moving and self-storage facility is coming to Daphne thanks to the Company's recent land acquisition of 4.12 acres east of U.S. Highway 98 and west of Old Spanish Trail.

"U-Haul is in growth mode, and so is Daphne," stated Chad Rome, U-Haul Company of S. Alabama president. "We plan to build a modern facility to address the community's storage needs. Providing convenient access to high-end self-storage is important. Plus, we can offer the expertise and reliability that comes with being the industry leader in do-it-yourself moving since 1945."
U-Haul Moving & Storage of Daphne will feature a sprawling retail showroom and essential mobility services like truck and trailer sharing, boxes and moving supplies, towing equipment and more. Professional hitch installation and propane will also be available in the future.
Rome intends to hire at least 12 Team Members to staff the new store. U-Haul will look to hire locally to promote job growth within the Daphne community. U-Haul, honored as a "Best for Vets 2020" leading veteran-friendly employer by The Military Times, actively recruits veterans and gives them preference in the hiring process.
