The U-Haul Companies of East Dallas and Northwest Dallas announced on May 11 that they are offering 30 days of free self-storage and U-Box portable moving and self-storage containers to residents affected by the tornado outbreak in Van, Texas and surrounding areas.
U-Haul stores have much-needed supplies available to help with storm recovery, such as boxes, tarps, propane and propane tanks. U-Haul urges customers to stop in to ensure that their propane tanks are topped off, as propane is an important item to have on hand in the event of long-term power outages.
With U-Box portable moving and self-storage containers, you can conveniently pick up our custom-designed trailer and take your U-Box container with you. Also, U-Haul can store the U-Box container in our secure warehouse or even pick up and deliver it to a location of your choice. U-Box containers are subject to availability. Please contact a regional office below for more information.
In addition to the 30-days-free self-storage assistance being offered, people who need 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 the recycling bin.
Families needing more information about the 30-days-free self-storage assistance program should contact the following U-Haul regional offices.

“The destructive tornadoes that recently ran through Van and surrounding areas in Texas have severely impacted the communities we serve,” U-Haul area district vice president Jeff Singleton said. “I hope these efforts will provide assistance to residents who need help during these challenging times. We will continue to help our friends and neighbors during their time of need.”
