U-Haul Offers 30 Days of Free Storage to Families Affected by Recent Flooding and Damaging Storms Throughout Rhode Island.

PROVIDENCE, R.I. (April 1, 2010) — The U-Haul Company of Rhode Island is offering 30 days of free storage at more than 15 U-Haul centers throughout Rhode Island to residents whose homes have been affected by damaging storms and flooding.

In addition to the 30-days-free self-storage assistance being offered, people needing 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 a recycling bin. U-Haul also has propane available and urges customers to stop in to ensure that their propane tanks are topped off, since propane is a good thing to have on hand when these storms come through.

Families needing more information about the 30-days-free self-storage assistance program should contact the following U-Haul regional office for directions to a U-Haul center closest to their home.

“Floods cause tremendous damage and inflict extreme hardship on the communities we serve,” stated Peter Olio, president, U-Haul Company of Rhode Island. “I hope this effort will provide assistance to families that may truly need a helping hand.  We will continue to help our friends and neighbors in this time of need.”
