U-Haul Offering 30 Days of Free Self-Storage and U-Box Portable Moving and Self-Storage Containers to San Diego County Wildfire Victims

SAN DIEGO - (May 14, 2014) — The U-Haul Company of Oceanside is offering 30 days of free self-storage and U-Box portable moving and self-storage containers to San Diego County residents who need to evacuate or move their belongings away from ongoing area wildfires.

With U-Box portable moving and self-storage containers, you can conveniently pick up our custom-designed trailer and take your U-Box container with you. U-Haul 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.

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