OTTAWA, Ont. (May 9, 2017) — U-Haul Company of Western Quebec is offering 30 days of free self-storage and U-Box container usage to residents in and around Ottawa who have been or will be impacted by flooding.
The Ottawa-Gatineau region has taken on extensive water due to heavy rains. Flooded streets and homes have created the need for secure and dry self-storage options where people can keep their possessions.
“The weather is starting to turn around, but the levels of the Ottawa River have reached a historic high, so low-lying areas are still facing troubles,” said Claude Boucher, U-Haul Company of Western Quebec president. “As a strong supporter of the communities to which we belong, U-Haul is ready to help by offering families a place to safely store their belongings for 30 days at no cost.”
Families seeking more information about the 30 days of free self-storage assistance or needing to make self-storage arrangements should contact:

With U-Box containers, you can conveniently pick up our custom-designed trailer and take your U-Box with you. U-Haul also can store your U-Box container in our secure warehouses or pick up and deliver it to a location of your choice.
U-Haul stores also offer needed supplies to help with storm recovery like boxes and tarps.
U-Haul is the industry leader in do-it-yourself moving and self-storage with more than 21,000 locations across the U.S. and Canada.
