Disaster Relief: Louisiana Flood Victims Offered 30 Days Free U-Haul Storage

Heavy rains, rising rivers and mandatory evacuations of neighborhoods across several parts of Louisiana have left many residents in dire straits this March.

The U-Haul Companies of Northern Louisiana and Southern Louisiana have responded to our neighbors in need by offering 30 days of free self-storage and U-Box container usage to flood victims in and around the communities of Alexandria, Baton Rouge, Bossier City, Hammond, Lafayette, Lake Charles, Shreveport and Slidell.

In all, 14 U-Haul-owned storage facilities in these areas are participating in the 30 days free self-storage and U-Box assistance.

“Our role as a hands-on community member is to help however we can, especially during times like these,” added Warren Iles, U-Haul Company of Northern Louisiana president. “We want to offer affected individuals and families a free, dry, secure location to bring their belongings while we all work through this flooding and its aftermath.”
