FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE
U-Haul Offers 30 Days of Free Storage and U-Box Portable Storage to Southern California Residents Who Have Been Affected by Recent Powerful Windstorms
LOS ANGELES - (Dec. 3, 2011) — The U-Haul Companies of Los Angeles East, San Bernardino and San Fernando Valley are offering 30 days of free storage and U-Box Portable Storage to residents who have been affected by recent, powerful windstorms that swept across Southern California.
With U-Box Portable Storage, you pick up or we deliver the U-Boxes, you fill them up and we store them in our secure warehouse or deliver them to a location of your choice.
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.

“These severe windstorms have caused power outages and tremendous amounts of damage to the communities we serve,” said Matt McFarren, U-Haul Area District Vice President. “I hope this effort will help provide some assistance to the many residents that need a helping hand. We will do our best to support our friends and neighbors in their time of need.”
Since 1945, U-Haul has been the choice for the do-it-yourself mover, with a network of more than 16,300 locations in all 50 States and 10 Canadian provinces. U-Haul customers' patronage has enabled the Company to maintain the largest rental fleet in the do-it-yourself moving industry with approximately 104,000 trucks, 80,000 trailers and 36,000 towing devices. U-Haul offers more than 406,000 rooms and 36 million square feet of storage space at nearly 1,100 owned and managed facilities throughout North America. U-Haul is the consumer’s number one choice as the largest installer of permanent trailer hitches in the automotive aftermarket industry. The Company supplies alternative-fuel for vehicles and backyard barbecues as one of the nation’s largest retailers of propane.
U-Haul was founded by a Navy veteran who grew up during the Great Depression. Tires and gas were still rationed or in short supply during the late 1940s when U-Haul began serving U.S. customers. Today, that background is central to the U-Haul Sustainability Program: “Serving the needs of the present without compromising the ability of future generations to meet their own needs.” Our commitment to reduce, reuse and recycle includes fuel-efficient moving vans, neighborhood proximity, moving box reuse, moving pads made from discarded material and packing peanuts that are 100% biodegradable.
