U-Haul Company of Eastern Iowa is offering 30 days of free self-storage and U-Box® container usage to residents in Davenport where flooding has been significant.
A flood barrier along the Mississippi River failed on Tuesday, sending floodwaters rushing into the city. Many buildings have taken on water, causing an immediate need for dry and secure self-storage units where people can bring their possessions.
“The waters in the Mississippi River have been high for weeks due to heavy rains and snowmelt,” said Robert Hampton, U-Haul Company of Eastern Iowa president. “The flooding is unpredictable and we want to make sure residents know they can store their belongings with U-Haul for no cost for one month.”

U-Haul stores offer needed supplies to help with storm 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.
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.
