U-Haul Offers 30 Days of Free Storage to Flood Victims in MA
CHICOPEE, Mass. (March 31, 2010) — The U-Haul Company of Western Massachusetts and Vermont is offering 30 days of free storage to residents whose homes have been affected by flooding in the Clinton area.
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 centers closest to their home.

“Floods cause tremendous damage and inflict extreme hardship on the communities we serve,” stated Matthew Pepin, president, U-Haul Company of Western Massachusetts and Vermont. “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.”
