U-Haul Offering 30 Days of Free Self-Storage and U-Box Portable Moving and Self-Storage to Ontario Residents Affected by Heavy Thunderstorms and Recent Flooding
TORONTO - (July 09, 2013) — The U-Haul Companies of Eastern Ontario and Central Ontario are offering 30 days of free self-storage and U-Box portable moving and self-storage to people throughout the greater Toronto area who were affected by the recent heavy thunderstorms and flooding.
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 with 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 one of the following U-Haul regional offices.

“These severe thunderstorms and flash floods have caused a tremendous amount of damage throughout Toronto and neighboring communities,” said U-Haul Area District Vice President Jake Spelic. “I hope this effort will help provide assistance to families and residents who need support. We will do our best to help our friends and neighbors in this time of need.”
