KAUKAUNA, Wis., Aug. 3, 2022 /PRNewswire/ — U-Haul® plans to build an impressive retail, moving and self-storage facility in Kaukauna after the Company’s recent 4.66-acre land acquisition at 1550 Arbor Way.
U-Haul Moving & Storage of Fox Cities North is scheduled for completion by summer 2024. It will comprise a four-story building of more than 100,000 square feet, housing indoor ADA-accessible self-storage rooms with climate-control options and high-tech security features at affordable price points.
“The Fox Cities include 19 communities along the Fox River, which have been underserved when it comes to quality self-storage,” stated Ken Heitman, U-Haul Company of Northern Wisconsin and the UP president. “This area is seeing significant population swells. Our expansion here is fundamental to meeting the public’s growing self-storage demands.”
U-Haul Moving & Storage of Fox Cities North will offer a spacious retail showroom, along with essential services like truck and trailer sharing, moving supplies and boxes, towing equipment, U-Box® portable storage containers and more. Professional hitch installation and propane will be available in the future.

“Growing our storage footprint in northeastern Wisconsin is important and we look forward to working closely with our neighbors and the City of Kaukauna,” Heitman added. “We aim to improve residents’ quality of life through residential mobility and by meeting their storage needs. U-Haul invites other businesses to follow our lead and invest in the Fox Cities.”
Heitman intends to hire at least 15 Team Members to staff the new store. U-Haul will look to hire locally to promote job growth within the Kaukauna 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.
