U-Haul Offers 30 Days of Free Storage and U-Box Moving and Self-Storage container to Southern Alabama and Florida Panhandle Residents Who Have Been Affected by Recent Torrential Thunderstorms and Flooding

MOBILE, Ala. - (June 12, 2012) — The U-Haul Company of Southern Alabama is offering 30 days of free storage and U-Box moving and self-storage containers to residents of Alabama and Florida who have been affected by recent torrential thunderstorms and flooding. 

 With the U-Box container you can conveniently pick up our custom-designed trailer and take your U-Box container with you. We can also store the U-Box container in our secure warehouse or even pick up and deliver it 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.

About U-Haul

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. Learn more about these facts and others at uhaul.com/sustainability.

Since 1945, U-Haul has been the choice for the do-it-yourself mover. U-Haul customers' patronage has enabled the Company to maintain the largest rental fleet in the do-it-yourself moving industry which includes trucks, trailers and towing devices. U-Haul also offers storage throughout North America. The Company provides industry leading moving and storage boxes and an extended line of packing supplies to protect customer possessions. U-Haul is the consumer’s number one choice as the largest installer of permanent trailer hitches in the automotive aftermarket. The Company supplies alternative-fuel for vehicles and backyard grills as one of the nation’s largest retailers of propane.
