Flooding in Western Quebec: U-Haul Offers 30 Days Free Storage

Apr 19, 2019

U-Haul Company of Western Quebec is offering 30 days of free self-storage to residents near Laval and Boisbriand, north of Montreal, as well as Gatineau, north of Ottawa, where flooding has been significant and is likely to worsen.

The overflowing Ottawa River, caused by several days of rain and large amounts of melting ice from the harsh winter, have flooded streets and homes. This has created an immediate need for secure and dry self-storage lockers where people can bring their possessions.

“Our communities are facing trouble with the rising waters, and we want them to know U-Haul is able to help,” said Claude Boucher, U-Haul Company of Western Quebec president. “We’re making three facilities available where people can store their belongings for one month at no cost.”

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