U-Haul Continues to Offer 30 Days Free Self-Storage and U-Box Moving and Self-Storage Containers to Assist Hurricane Sandy Victims
PHOENIX - (Oct. 30, 2012) — U-Haul International, Inc., announced today that U-Haul centers across the northeastern United States are still offering 30 days free self-storage and U-Box moving and self-storage containers to assist Hurricane Sandy victims. With the U-Box moving and self-storage container , you can conveniently pick up our custom-designed trailer and take your U-Box container with you. U-Haul can also store the U-Box container in our secure warehouse or even pick up and deliver it to a location of your choice.
There are many U-Haul centers that remain open for business and have much-needed supplies available to help with hurricane recovery such as boxes, tarps, propane and propane tanks. U-Haul urges customers to stop in to ensure that their propane tanks are topped off, since propane is a good thing to have on hand in the event of long term power outages.
In addition to the 30-days-free self-storage assistance being offered, people who need boxes can take advantage of the U-Haul Take a Box, Leave a Box Program. The program enables customers to return their reusable boxes and allows others to take them as needed – FREE. U-Haul encourages anyone who has any type of reusable box to drop it off at the nearest U-Haul location and allow another family to reuse the box, free of charge, instead of throwing the reusable box into the recycling bin.
Families needing more information about the 30-days-free self-storage assistance program should contact one the following U-Haul regional offices.
