Tornado Recovery: U-Haul Offers 30 Days Free Self-Storage in Kansas City

The U-Haul Companies of Southern Kansas and Northern Kansas are offering 30 days of free self-storage and U-Box® container usage to residents in and around Kansas City impacted by Tuesday night’s severe weather.

A large tornado skirted the Kansas City metro area but struck several towns in the region. Many houses have been damaged as a result.

“The tornado was so large it caused miles of destruction,” noted Gary Wittkopp, U-Haul Company of Northern Kansas president. “There are downed trees and power lines, and damaged homes. The impact has created a need for self-storage as our neighbors go through the clean-up process and require a place to bring their possessions. We want to help by offering one month of free self-storage to those in need.”

U-Haul stores offer needed supplies to help with recovery like boxes, tarps, propane and propane tanks. Customers are urged to ensure their tanks are topped off since propane is good to have in the event of long-term power outages.
