U-Haul Companies of Arkansas and Tulsa are making three facilities available to extend 30 days of free self-storage to residents impacted by flooding near the border town of Moffett, Okla., and the River Valley region.
“They’re going to open the dam there because it’s 40 feet above capacity. They’re evacuating the town of Moffett today,” stated Andrew Hicks, U-Haul Company of Arkansas president. “Tulsa just had 12 inches of rain and it overcame their dam. All this water has fed the Arkansas River.
“This situation has created an immediate need for self-storage in the region. As a caring member of these communities, we are offering our disaster relief program to those in need at no cost for one month.”
People seeking additional information or needing to arrange 30 days free self-storage should contact the nearest participating U-Haul® store location:
2205 Towson Ave.
Fort Smith, AR 72901
806 Twin City Ave.
Springdale, AR 72764
2301 S. 8th St.
Rogers, AR 72758
U-Haul stores also offer needed supplies to help with recovery like boxes, tarps, propane and propane tanks. Customers should 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 free self-storage disaster relief program, U-Haul is proud to be at the forefront of aiding communities in times of need as an official American Red Cross Disaster Responder.
