U-Haul Offers Disaster Relief to Tornado Victims in Oklahoma

Posted by Modern Storage Media on May 10, 2024 7:00:00 AM

U-Haul, an official American Red Cross Disaster Responder, is extending its disaster relief program to residents impacted by tornado damage in Barnsdall, Bartlesville, and other areas of northeast Oklahoma.


Tornadoes directly hit Barnsdall and Bartlesville late Monday, leaving those communities ravaged and without power. News reports indicate more than 30 homes were leveled from the storms. Several residents suffered injuries and there was at least one fatality.


Access to dry and secure U-Haul self-storage rooms and portable storage containers is essential for communities following natural disasters. Jim Smith, U-Haul Company of Tulsa president, has made six facilities in nearby Tulsa and Broken Arrow available to help.


"The aftermath of this tornado will be felt for some time, and U-Haul just wants to help however possible," Smith stated. "The clean-up and rebuild process is difficult. If our storage solutions can make it a little easier on Oklahoma families, we're here to provide that at no cost for one month."


The disaster relief offer applies to new U-Box rentals and is based on availability. 

U-Box containers offer 257 cubic feet of storage space and one-ton capacity, and can be delivered to a home or picked up at a U-Haul facility with the company's custom-designed trailer. U-Box containers can be kept on-site or stored in U-Haul's secure warehouses until renters are ready to pick them up or have them delivered.
