U-Haul Offering Free Storage To Those Impacted By Texas Wildfires

Posted by Modern Storage Media on Mar 4, 2024 7:49:48 AM

U-Haul® is offering 30 days of free self-storage and U-Box® container usage to residents impacted by the wildfires across the Texas panhandle.


The Smokehouse Creek Fire started on Monday and has burned more than 1 million acres. It’s the largest in the state’s history, leading to numerous evacuations.


“One of the worst things that can happen is people being told to leave their property because of an unpredictable wildfire,” stated Rusty Freeze, U-Haul Company of West Texas president. “Much of the affected area is rural cattle country, so having access to our mobile U-Box storage is a must. Offering one month of free storage options is the least we can do to help our neighbors during this difficult time.”


The U-Haul disaster relief program applies to new storage rentals and is based on availability. People seeking more information or needing to arrange free self-storage should contact their nearest participating facility:
