U-Haul Continues to Offer 30 Days of Free Self-Storage and Also Is Offering 30 Days of Free U-Box Portable Moving and Storage to Oklahoma Tornado Victims
OKLAHOMA CITY - (May 21, 2013) —The U-Haul Company of Oklahoma City announced today that Company-owned U-Haul centers throughout Oklahoma remain open for business, and are still offering 30 days free self-storage to tornado victims.
The U-Haul Company of Oklahoma also is offering 30 days free U-Box portable moving and storage to tornado victims. With U-Box portable moving and storage, 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, in which case delivery fees are applicable.
In order to better serve all Oklahoma residents and families, the U-Haul Company of Oklahoma announced today that they have significantly lowered the price of small, medium, large and extra-large U-Haul boxes while increasing the daily flow of boxes and other much-needed supplies into local stores. This will ensure availability of what the community needs to help with tornado recovery such as tarps, gloves, 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.
Oklahoma residents also can take advantage of the U-Haul Take a Box, Leave a Box Program. The program enables anyone to bring in their reusable boxes, to allow 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, instead of throwing the reusable box into the recycling bin.
“This devastating tornado that swept through Oklahoma has caused just an unbelievably terrible amount of damage throughout the communities we serve in our state,” stated Marketing Company President (MCP) Brett Hogan, U-Haul Company of Oklahoma City. “Our hearts, thoughts and prayers are with those who have been adversely affected by this tornado. I hope these efforts will help provide assistance to Oklahoma residents who need support. We will do our best to help our friends and neighbors in this time of need.”
