U-Haul Assists Houston Residents with Free Self-Storage

Jun 1, 2015

The U-Haul Company of Gulf Coast Texas is offering 30 days of free self-storage to all residents who were affected by severe storms that recently swept through Houston 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, since propane is a good thing 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. U-Haul also can store the U-Box container in our secure warehouse or even pick up and deliver it to a location of your choice.

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 office.
