Bush Fire Evacuees: U-Haul Offers 30 Days Free Self-Storage

Jun 17, 2020

U-Haul® is offering 30 days of free self-storage and U-Box® container usage to residents impacted by the Bush Fire in Tonto National Forest.

The fire has burned approximately 65,000 acres with no containment. It is the largest active burning fire in the country.

The Maricopa County Sheriff’s Office told Sunflower area residents to evacuate Tuesday after Gila County officials evacuated communities in Tonto Basin and Punkin Center on Monday.

“As the Bush Fire spreads, people are having to leave their homes and move to other parts of the Valley,” stated Andy Smith, U-Haul Company of Eastern Arizona president. “The fire is creating an immediate need for people to protect their belongings. We want to help any displaced families by providing free self-storage for one month through our disaster relief program.”

Participating Locations

U-Haul has made 20 facilities in the East Valley available to offer assistance. 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:
