U-Haul Company of NW Ohio is offering 30 days of free self-storage and U-Box portable storage containers to residents of Toledo, Monroe and surrounding Lake Erie communities who have been impacted by flooding and mandatory neighborhood evacuations stemming from recent storms.
“We’ve had a lot of rain and high winds, and if the wind is blowing a certain direction on Lake Erie, the lake levels can break over the walls,” said David Vallie, U-Haul Company of NW Ohio president. “Several subdivisions in Monroe have been evacuated. There is flooding in the streets of Toledo. I’ve lived in the area more than 20 years and have never experienced anything like it.
“As a caring and responsible corporate citizen of these communities, we want to help our neighbors in times of need. That’s why U-Haul is offering dry and secure self-storage for people needing to stow their belongings at no charge for one month.”
Finally, people seeking more information about the U-Haul 30 days free disaster relief assistance or needing to make self-storage arrangements should contact the nearest participating location:

With U-Box containers, you can conveniently pick up our custom-designed trailer and take your U-Box with you. U-Haul also can store your U-Box container in our secure warehouses or pick up and deliver it to a location of your choice. Watch the new U-Box TV commercial here.
U-Haul stores also offer needed supplies to help with storm recovery like boxes, tarps, propane and propane tanks. Customers should top off their tanks since propane is good to have in the event of long-term power outages.
