U-Haul Company of Southern Louisiana is offering 30 days of free self-storage to residents who have been or will be impacted by flood conditions in the region.
Major flooding is expected as Tropical Storm Cindy reaches the mainland. Louisiana Governor John Bel Edwards has declared a state of emergency for the entire state.
“Flash floods can cause a lot of damage in this region and we need to make sure people are prepared,” U-Haul Company of Southern Louisiana president Pat Allen said. “U-Haul supports local communities and we want to make sure our neighbors have a clean and dry place to store their items.”
Families needing more information about the 30 days self-storage assistance should contact the nearest participating location:
No. 4 Westbank Exp.
Gretna, LA 70053
2340 Lapalco Blvd.
Harvey, LA 70058
7201 W. Bank Expressway

U-Haul stores also offer needed supplies to help with recovery like boxes, tarps, propane and propane tanks. U-Haul urges customers to ensure their tanks are topped off since propane is good to have in the event of long-term power outages.
U-Haul is the industry leader in do-it-yourself moving and self-storage with more than 21,000 locations across the U.S. and Canada. In addition to its 30 days of free self-storage assistance, U-Haul is proud to be at the forefront of aiding communities during times of disaster as an official American Red Cross Disaster Responder.
