U-Haul Offers 30 Days of Free Self-Storage and U-Box Moving and Self-Storage Containers to Central Florida Severe Storm and Tornado Victims
ORLANDO, Fla. - (Dec. 11, 2012) — The U-Haul Companies of Orlando, North Orlando and Gainesville are offering 30 days of free self-storage and U-Box moving and self-storage container to central Florida residents affected by the recent severe storms and tornadoes that swept across the state.
With the U-Box container you can conveniently pick up our custom-designed trailer and take your U-Box container with you. We can also store the U-Box container in our secure warehouse or even pick up and deliver it to a location of your choice.
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. U-Haul also has propane available and urges customers to stop in to ensure that their propane tanks are topped off, since propane is a good thing to have on hand when these storms come through.
Families needing more information about the 30-days-free self-storage assistance program should contact one the following U-Haul regional offices.

U-Haul Company of North Orlando
U-Haul Company of Gainesville
“These tornadoes and severe storms that swept across central Florida last night caused extreme damage throughout many of our communities,” stated Mario Martinez, U-Haul area district vice president. “I hope this effort will help provide assistance to families that need support. We will do our best to help our friends and neighbors in this time of need.”
