U-Haul Extends Free Storage Offer to 3 More States after Idalia

CHARLESTON, S.C. (Sept. 1, 2023) — U-Haul® is offering 30 days of free self-storage and U-Box® container usage at 21 stores across Georgia, North Carolina and South Carolina where residents may need recovery assistance after Hurricane Idalia.

The storm moved through the Southeast on Wednesday, creating widespread flooding and storm surges with its strong winds. Accessibility to secure self-storage is always beneficial to communities before and after natural disasters.

“Storms and rainfall of this magnitude create an immediate need for dry and secure self-storage during the recovery process,” said Tinessa Edwards, U-Haul Company of Coastal South Carolina president. “Our U-Haul family is stepping up by making our disaster relief program available to anyone in need across the Carolinas and Florida, adding to the Florida offer made last week.”

Local U-Haul companies announced 54 self-storage facilities in Florida would offer one month of free storage before Idalia made landfall.

The U-Haul disaster relief program applies to new self-storage unit rentals and is based on availability at each facility. People seeking more information or needing to arrange 30 days of free self-storage should contact the nearest participating facility:
