Randy Dickson, marketing company president U-Haul Company of Iowa, explained the historic nature of this building. The building was formerly Ames Rentals, a general equipment rental company, which occupied the building for 30 years. While most considered this building functionally obsolete, U-Haul considers it an asset to the Ames community.

"We are proud to have the ability to serve the moving public of Ames and offer a convenient way to meet their moving needs," Dickson said. "It is a five-star location on one of the busiest streets in Ames."

The opening of this facility is driven by U-Haul Company's Corporate Sustainability initiatives: U-Haul supports infill development to help local communities lower their carbon footprint. Our adaptive reuse of existing buildings eliminates the amount of energy and resources required for new-construction materials and helps local cities reduce their unwanted inventory of unused buildings. 

Plans for this facility include the addition of self-storage and U-Box storage. Although there is still work to do in the building, the center is open for business-- renting trucks and trailers, and selling moving supplies.

"The most exciting part of this venture is having the ability to reuse a building that was vacant," Dickson explained. "It will be a beautiful facility when it is completed."
