U-Haul Extends 30 Days Free Self-Storage Offer to Georgia as Hurricane Irma Looms

Sep 10, 2017

Six U-Haul Companies across Georgia are preemptively offering 30 days of free self-storage and U-Box container usage to residents who stand to be impacted by Hurricane Irma.

Irma is expected to deliver severe flooding and is forecast to reach Georgia on Monday. The potential for disastrous conditions has created an immediate need for secure and dry self-storage options where people can keep their belongings before and after Irma arrives.

“This storm is a monster and some forecasts predict a direct hit on Atlanta,” U-Haul Company of Central Georgia president Jason Petty said. “U-Haul is a member of these communities and it is important for us to help. One way we can do that is by offering 30 days of free self-storage to our Georgia neighbors who may be affected by this hurricane.”

U-Haul Companies of Atlanta North, Atlanta West, Central Georgia, Georgia Northeast, Southern Georgia and Western Georgia have made 21 facilities across 15 cities available to help. Georgians seeking assistance or needing more information about the 30 days free self-storage disaster relief should contact the nearest participating facility (locations alphabetized by city):
