U-Haul Offers Disaster Relief To Flood Victims in Texas

Posted by Modern Storage Media on May 5, 2024 8:50:36 AM

U-Haul, an official American Red Cross Disaster Responder, is extending its disaster relief program to flood victims in and around Livingston, Texas, making 30 days of free U-Box portable moving and storage container usage available to residents affected by the ongoing rains in the area north of Houston.


Due to severe flooding this week, many Livingston residents have been evacuated and may be facing significant water damage to their homes and personal belongings. 


"We just want people to know U-Haul is here to help," said Robert Abidin, U-Haul Company of Northeast Houston president. "Once the flooding stops, we anticipate a lot of families dealing with property clean-up. If any of our impacted neighbors need a U-Box container for that process, we will gladly offer our portable storage product 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.
