U-Haul Offers 30 Days of Free Storage to North Carolina Tornado Victims

CHARLOTTE, N.C. (March 29, 2010) — The U-Haul Company of Charlotte is offering 30 days of free storage to residents whose homes or businesses have been damaged by the recent tornadoes.

In addition to the 30-days-free self-storage assistance being offered, 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 a recycling bin. U-Haul also has propane available and urges customers to stop in to ensure that their propane tanks are topped off, since propane is a good thing to have on hand when these storms come through.

Families needing more information about the 30-days-free self-storage assistance program should contact the following U-Haul centers closest to their home.

We will continue to help our friends and neighbors during their time of need.”
