More U-Haul Companies in the Carolinas are offering 30 days of free self-storage and U-Box storage container usage to residents who have been affected by the flooding from Hurricane Irma.

Now a tropical storm, Irma has delivered severe flooding to parts of the Carolinas. Thousands of residents are without power.

“Many residents are coming home to rain and wind damage,” U-Haul Company of Western North Carolina president Doug Weston said. “As a responsible corporate citizen and a member of these communities, U-Haul vows to help by providing 30 days of free self-storage to our affected neighbors.”

The U-Haul Companies of Western North Carolina, Central North Carolina and Raleigh have made 15 self-storage facilities across 11 cities available to provide assistance.

On Monday, the U-Haul Companies of South Carolina and Coastal South Carolina extended the same disaster relief offer at seven locations in four cities. Find that press release here.
