U-Haul Centers Stand Ready to Assist Louisiana Residents Affected by Severe Winter Weather Conditions
SHREVEPORT, La. (Feb. 25, 2015) — U-Haul is open for business and available to help those in need due to recent severe winter weather. As always, U-Haul has truck and trailers available for rent, as well as much-needed supplies such as boxes, tarps, propane and propane tanks.
U-Haul is offering 30 days of free storage to residents who may find themselves with pipe bursts caused by the severe winter weather.
U-Haul also has propane available and urges customers to stop in to ensure that their propane tanks are topped off. Propane is often needed for cooking, grilling and boiling water when residents have no electrical services after a major storm. Prices on propane have just been lowered at participating stores.
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 the recycling bin.
Families needing more information about the 30-days-free self-storage assistance program should contact the following regional offices to locate the nearest U-Haul store.
