U-Haul Provides More Disaster Relief: Now Aiding Texas, Louisiana

Posted by Modern Storage Media on May 17, 2024 9:56:00 AM

U-Haul, an official American Red Cross Disaster Responder, is offering disaster relief again, the fifth time in the last month alone by this publication's count (the company previously helped residents in Michigan, Nebraska, Oklahoma, and Florida). Nine U-Haul stores in southern Louisiana and southeast Texas are offering 30 days of free self-storage and U-Box container usage to residents impacted by extreme weather.


Severe thunderstorms and flash floods affected communities across the region on last Thursday night, the latest in a series of spring weather events to cause residential and commercial damage. Many homes are without power, and some schools have closed until further notice.


Access to dry and secure self-storage rooms and portable storage containers is critical for communities during the recovery process following natural disasters.

"Our team wants to help," said Emily Upshaw, U-Haul Company of South Central Louisiana president. "For any of our neighbors impacted by these storms who need storage, we're here to support your recovery with a month of free services."


The 30-day free offer applies to new self-storage and U-Box rentals and is based on availability. The free U-Box offer is for on-site storage at U-Haul facilities and does not include residential delivery and pick-up of containers.
