U-Haul Offers 30 Days Free Storage after Flooding in Fort Lauderdale
FORT LAUDERDALE, Fla. (April 14, 2023) — U-Haul® is offering 30 days of free self-storage at its Coconut Creek location to residents impacted by the record-breaking rainstorms that brought substantial flooding to parts of Broward County this week.
An unprecedented spring storm dropped over 25 inches of rain in the Fort Lauderdale area within 24 hours. Fort Lauderdale’s airport was underwater for a time as flooding disrupted travel.
With numerous families displaced and homes that will require repairs, having accessibility to dry and secure self-storage during the clean-up process is always beneficial to communities affected by natural disasters.
“U-Haul is a member of these communities, and we are available to help,” said Davina Bean, U-Haul Company of Fort Lauderdale president. “Our neighbors in and around Broward County are still assessing the flood damage, but we know many homes have sustained water damage. We are on standby to help with recovery by providing self-storage units to keep people’s possessions safe at no cost for one month.”
The U-Haul disaster relief program applies to new self-storage unit rentals and is based on availability. People seeking more information or needing to arrange 30 days of free self-storage should contact:
