U-Haul Offers Free Self-Storage at 28 Locations Ahead of Hurricane Michael

Share |

JACKSONVILLE, Fla. (Oct. 8, 2018) — Four U-Haul Companies across the Carolinas, Florida, Georgia and Alabama are offering 30 days of free self-storage and U-Box container usage at 28 facilities (including 11 in Florida) to residents who stand to be impacted by the heavy rains and extreme winds associated with Hurricane Michael.

The Category 1 storm is expected to make landfall Wednesday. Florida Governor Rick Scott has declared a state of emergency and thousands of residents are preparing their homes for the approaching storm.

“People in flood zones are already taking precautions to protect their homes,” U-Haul Company of Tallahassee president Chris Ferguson said. “Storms like these create an immediate need for secure locations where residents can store the belongings they wish to protect.

“As a member of these communities, we are in a position to lend a helping hand by providing this free self-storage service to our neighbors in harm's way.”

U-Haul Companies of Atlanta West, Tallahassee, South Alabama and Western North Carolina have made facilities across 12 cities available for assistance.

Families needing more information about the 30 days free self-storage assistance should contact the nearest participating U-Haul store. Locations are sorted by state:
