Upstate New York Flooding: U-Haul Extends 30 Days Free Self-Storage Offer

May 30, 2019

U-Haul Companies of Western New York and North Central New York are now offering 30 days of free self-storage to New Yorkers who have been impacted by flooding.

Lake Ontario is nearing record-high levels and a flood warning remains in place. With more rain in the weekend forecast, many roads have closed and homes are in danger of taking on water.

“The rains have really been pounding this area lately,” said Todd Schnitzer, U-Haul Company of Western New York president. “Many folks have suffered water damage, and with more rain to come, people are in need of a secure place to store their possessions. We want to make sure our neighbors in impacted areas are able to make use of our disaster relief assistance program.”
