U-Haul® is offering 30 days of free self-storage to residents impacted by the severe storms that slammed Springfield and surrounding areas early Thursday morning.
High winds knocked down trees and damaged homes from Springfield to Ozark.
“The damage to these communities is fairly significant,” said Aaron Self, U-Haul Company of Missouri president. “These families are already facing the challenges brought on by the COVID-19 outbreak, and now they have another hurdle. As people begin the clean-up process, we want to offer them a secure place to store their belongings at no cost for one month.”
People seeking more information about the U-Haul disaster relief program or needing to arrange 30 days of free self-storage should contact the nearest participating location:
1768 N. Glenstone
Springfield, MO 65803
3150 S. Campbell Ave.
Springfield, MO 65807
U-Haul stores offer needed supplies to help with storm recovery like boxes, tarps, propane and propane tanks. Customers should ensure their tanks are topped off since propane is good to have in the event of long-term power outages.
U-Haul offered one month of free self-storage on March 12 to all college students whose school schedules were interrupted by COVID-19. That offer is ongoing at U-Haul-owned and -operated storage facilities across the U.S. and Canada, and is subject to availability.
As an essential service provider, U-Haul is open to meet the needs of its communities. For details on what U-Haul has done to enhance cleaning protocols, protect Team Members and customers, and encourage the use of programs that inherently promote social distancing and contactless business, please reference our multi-media press release: “Moving Safely and Smartly during the COVID-19 Pandemic.”
