U-Haul Offers 30 Days Free Self-Storage, U-Box as Northern Florida Braces for Tropical Storm Hermine

JACKSONVILLE, OCALA and TALLAHASSEE, Fla. (Aug. 31, 2016) — Three U-Haul Companies are offering 30 days of free self-storage and U-Box container usage over a wide area of Northern Florida to residents who have or will be impacted by Tropical Storm Hermine and the rains that have preceded it.

Parts of Florida have already taken on water from ongoing tropical storms and other counties in the path of Hermine are facing mandatory evacuations, creating the need for safe, secure and dry self-storage options where people can stow their possessions.

“The rain has been coming down fairly hard and we are expecting more Thursday and Friday with wind gusts up to 60 mph,” U-Haul Company of Jacksonville president Shalon Lillard said. “Governor Rick Scott has already issued a state of emergency for the state of Florida.

“U-Haul is here to serve our communities and help families during times of disaster and severe weather conditions. We can provide secure self-storage units at no charge for 30 days to those who are affected by the storms.”

The U-Haul Companies of Gainesville, Jacksonville and Tallahassee have made 23 self-storage facilities across eight cities available to provide assistance. Families needing more information about the self-storage assistance should contact the following U-Haul store nearest you:
