U-Haul Offering 30 Days of Free Self-Storage and U-Box Portable Moving and Self-Storage Containers to Pennsylvania Residents Affected by Severe Winter Storms
PHILADELPHIA - (Feb. 6, 2014) — The U-Haul Company of North Philadelphia is offering 30 days of free self-storage and U-Box portable moving and self-storage containers to people in Northeastern and Southeastern Pennsylvania and surrounding areas who were affected by the recent severe winter storms and icy conditions.
With a U-Box portable 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 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. And, 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.

“These recent snowstorms have dumped more than a foot of snow in many communities throughout our state…and across the Northeast,” stated Mike Zemba, U-Haul area district vice president. “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.”
