U-Haul Offering 30 Days of Free Self-Storage and U-Box Portable Moving and Self-Storage to Florida Residents Affected by Tropical Storm Andrea
MIAMI – (June 6, 2013) — The U-Haul Companies of Miami, Tampa, Ft. Lauderdale, Eastern Florida, Western Florida, Clearwater, North Orlando and Gainesville are offering 30 days of free storage and U-Box portable moving and self-storage to residents of Florida whose homes or businesses may already have been flooded by Tropical Storm Andrea, or those who still need to evacuate and move their belongings out of harm’s way.
With U-Box portable moving and self-storage, 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, 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 any 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 of the following U-Haul regional offices.
