PORTSMOUTH, Va. - (Aug. 29, 2012) — The U-Haul Company of Tidewater is offering 30 days of free storage and U-Box moving and self-storage containers to residents of Hampton, Newport News and other surrounding areas in Southern Virginia who have been affected by heavy rains, severe thunderstorms and flash 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 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.

Families needing more information about the 30-days-free self-storage assistance program should contact the following U-Haul regional office: 

U-Haul Company of Tidewater
2855 Airline Blvd.
Portsmouth, VA 23701
(757) 488-4940

“These heavy rains, severe thunderstorms and flash floods have caused a tremendous amount of damage to the communities we serve throughout our state of Virginia,” stated Rich Cowell, president, U-Haul Company of Tidewater. “I hope this effort will help provide assistance to families that need support. We will do our best to help our friends and neighbors in this time of need.”
