ST JOHN’S, Newfoundland - (Sept. 10, 2012) — The U-Haul Company of Atlantic Canada is offering 30 days of free storage and U-Box moving and self-storage containers to residents of Newfoundland  who may need to evacuate their homes or businesses in preparation for tropical storms and Hurricane Leslie.

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. 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 Center.

 “These severe tropical storms and Hurricane Leslie have the potential to cause tremendous amounts of damage to many communities we serve throughout Newfoundland,” stated Bruce Bennett, president, U-Haul Company of Atlantic Canada. “I hope this effort will provide assistance to residents who need help preparing for these storms. We will continue to help our friends and neighbors during their time of need.”
