U-Haul Offering 30 Days of Free Self-Storage and U-Box Moving and Self-Storage Containers to Mississippi Residents Affected by the Recent Tornado and Statewide Flooding
JACKSON, Miss. - (Feb. 11, 2012) — The U-Haul Company of Mississippi is offering 30 days of free self-storage and U-Box moving and self-storage container to central Mississippi residents who were affected by yesterday’s tornado, and also to residents statewide who need to move their belongings to safety because of flooding.
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 also can 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 office.
