U-Haul Offers 30 Days of Free Self-Storage after Tornadoes Slam Eastern Texas

Apr 30, 2017

U-Haul Company of East Dallas is offering 30 days of free self-storage and U-Box container usage to residents of Canton and surrounding communities who were affected by the tornadoes that touched down on Saturday night.

Multiple tornadoes tore through parts of East Texas causing some fatalities and damaging many homes.

“The damage left along Interstate 20 and throughout Canton is extensive,” U-Haul Company of East Dallas president Jesus Terrazas said. “People lost their homes, their health and, in some cases, their lives. U-Haul is here to offer relief to struggling families. People needing a place to safely secure their possessions can count on us. We’re happy to offer 30 days of free self-storage during times of need.”

People seeking more information about the 30 days free self-storage assistance or needing to make self-storage arrangements should contact one of the following stores:
