U-Haul Moving & Storage of Palencia, scheduled for completion by 2022, will comprise five stories and more than 130,000 square feet. The building will house 800-plus indoor, ADA accessible self-storage rooms with climate-control options and high-tech security features.

U-Haul acquired the property on July 8.

"This property is located just off Highway 1, which is the major north-south connection on the East Coast," said Neph Saint Paul, U-Haul Company of Jacksonville president. "Florida's northeast coast is a sprawling community and is seeing significant population swells. Our expansion in this area is fundamental because growing populations equate to more moving and self-storage needs."

U-Haul Moving & Storage of Palencia will offer truck and trailer sharing, towing equipment, professional hitch installation, moving supplies, U-Box® portable storage containers, propane, extended hours storage access, and ecofriendly initiatives like the Take A Box, Leave a Box program to benefit the community.

While U-Haul Moving & Storage of Palencia is under construction, nearby U-Haul facilities and neighborhood dealers are available to serve customers. U-Haul Moving & Storage of Saint Augustine at 3524 U.S. Hwy. 1 S. is open 7 a.m.-7 p.m. Monday-Thursday and Saturday; 7 a.m.-8 p.m. Friday; and 9 a.m.-5 p.m. Sunday.

Saint Paul expects to employ at least 12 Team Members when the new facility is completed. U-Haul will look to hire locally to support job growth within the St. Augustine 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.

"U-Haul is committed to building a more resilient St. Augustine through our essential services and residential mobility products," Saint Paul added. "We are working closely with the city to provide a plan and a facility that will benefit everyone."

As an essential service provider, U-Haul continues to serve communities during the COVID-19 recovery while offering contactless business programs and enhanced cleaning protocols, including added steps for sanitizing equipment between customer transactions. U-Haul products are used daily by First Responders; delivery companies bringing needed supplies to people's homes; small businesses trying to remain afloat; college students; and many other dependent groups, in addition to the do-it-yourself household mover.
