The U-Haul Co. of Memphis in Tennessee is offering 30 days of free self-storage as well as U-Box pod moving and storage to residents who’ve been affected by the recent rain and severe flooding.
Through the U-Box pod program, storm victims can pick up a custom-designed trailer and take the pod with them, or U-Haul can store the pod in its secure warehouse or pick up and deliver it to another location.
In addition to the free storage offer, storm victims in need of boxes can take advantage of the U-Haul Take a Box, Leave a Box program. The program enables customers to use reusable boxes at no charge. Instead of throwing out or recycling reusable boxes and bins, U-Haul encourages residents to drop them off at the nearest U-Haul location to enable other families to use them.
“The recent heavy rains have caused severe flooding throughout Memphis and surrounding communities in the area,” said Carol George, president of the U-Haul Co. of Memphis. “I hope this effort will help provide assistance to families and residents who need support. We will do our best to help our friends and neighbors in this time of need."
Established in 1945, U-Haul International Inc. has more than 40 million square feet of storage space at more than 1,000 owned and managed facilities throughout North America.
