Tropical Storm Bertha: U-Haul Offers Free Self-Storage in North Carolina and Virginia

May 27, 2020

U-Haul® is proactively offering 30 days of free self-storage and U-Box® container usage to North Carolina and Virginia residents forecasted to be in the path of Tropical Storm Bertha.

Potential flooding and strong winds are expected to impact a wide area as the storm moves north.

“We encourage these communities to prepare for the storm by taking advantage of our free self-storage disaster relief program,” said Jeffrey Messenger, U-Haul Company of Southern Virginia president. “We want to ensure our neighbors have a dry, secure place to store their belongings.”
