U-Haul Offering 30 Days of Free Self-Storage and U-Box Moving and Self-Storage Containers to Georgia Residents Preparing for Possible Tornadoes
ATLANTA - (Dec. 20, 2012) — The U-Haul Companies of Northern Georgia and Southern Georgia are offering 30 days of free self-storage and U-Box moving and self-storage container to Georgia residents and business owners who may need to evacuate their homes or businesses and store their belongings in preparation for tornadoes that may be on the way.
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.
U-Haul centers are open for business and have much-needed supplies available to help with tornado 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 the following U-Haul regional offices.

“These tornadoes have the potential to cause a great deal of damage to our communities throughout Georgia,” stated U-Haul Area District Vice President (ADVP) Doug Weston. “I hope this effort will help to prepare and provide assistance to area residents and businesses needing our support. We will do our best to help our friends and neighbors in this time of need.”
