U-Haul at Roswell St. Closing after 40 Years

Staff Report From Metro Atlanta CEO

Thursday, June 14th, 2018

U-Haul Moving & Storage at Roswell St., a self-move store at 706 Roswell St. in Marietta that has been serving Cobb County customers since November 1978, closed its doors on May 29.

Plans call for U-Haul to maintain ownership of the property and lease the facility to a local business.

Customers of the former Roswell St. location can find U-Haul products less than a half mile away at the new U-Haul at Roswell Street at 900 Roswell St. Site of a former Chevrolet dealership that U-Haul acquired last year, the new facility will soon offer 400-plus indoor self-storage rooms and U-Box portable storage in addition to a full line of U-Haul equipment and services.

Local U-Haul Companies are always exploring opportunities for growth as they pursue means to better meet the needs of customers, but sometimes find it necessary to close or relocate stores. Reasons for closures can include: long-term strategic plans; physical plant limitations; shifts in demographics; trends in migration; expansion of the U-Haul neighborhood dealer network; and proximity to other new or existing U-Haul stores.

U-Haul Company's repurposing of the building for U-Haul at Roswell Street was driven by its Corporate Sustainability initiatives: U-Haul supports infill developments to help local communities lower their carbon footprint. The adaptive reuse of existing buildings reduces the energy and resources required for new-construction materials and helps cities reduce their unwanted inventory of unused buildings.
