U-Haul Offers Free Self-Storage to Victims of Texas Tornadoes

The U-Haul Cos. of East and South Central Dallas are offering 30 days of free self-storage or U-Box container usage to people who’ve been affected by the tornadoes in the Dallas-Fort Worth, Texas, region. Families who need more information can contact the U-Haul store nearest them or visit the company’s website, according to a press release. Participating facilities include the U-Haul Co. of East Dallas in Garland, Texas; and the U-Haul Co. of South Central Dallas in Grand Prairie, Texas.

"The tornadoes that recently ran through Texas have devastated the communities we serve," said Jeff Singleton, area district vice president. "I hope these efforts will provide assistance to residents who need help. U-Haul has been a part of these neighborhoods for many years, and we'd like to reach out and help these families with free storage. We will continue to help our friends and neighbors during their time of need.”

Through the U-Box program, tornado victims can pick up a custom-designed trailer and take a storage container with them. Alternatively, U-Haul can store the container in its secure warehouse, or pick up and deliver it to another location.

Tornado victims can also take advantage of the U-Haul Take a Box, Leave a Box program, which enables customers to use recycled boxes at no charge. Instead of discarding reusable boxes and bins, U-Haul encourages local residents to drop them off at the nearest U-Haul location, allowing other people to use them.

U-Haul stores also offer supplies to help residents with storm recovery, such as boxes, tarps, propane and propane tanks, according to the release.

Established in 1945, U-Haul International Inc. has more than 40 million square feet of storage space at more than 1,200 owned and managed facilities throughout North America.
