Iowa Storm Victims: 30 Days Free Self-Storage Availble

Aug 13, 2020

U-Haul® facilities across Iowa are offering one month of free self-storage and U-Box® portable storage container usage to residents affected by the devastating storms earlier this week.

Winds exceeding 100 mph damaged countless homes and left hundreds of thousands without power in the Midwest.

As those impacted begin the recovery process, U-Haul Companies of Eastern Iowa and Western Iowa are making 16 stores available to help with storage services at no cost for 30 days. Two of the participating stores are located in western Illinois.

“On Monday, Iowa and much of the Midwest saw a very strong storm push through that has left an immediate need for disaster relief,” said Randy Dickson, U-Haul Company of Western Iowa president. “With very few exceptions, all of our storage facilities have power and can offer assistance. This is a chance for our teams to give back and provide our neighbors with a secure place for storing their belongings during clean-up efforts.”

People seeking more information about the U-Haul disaster relief program or needing to arrange 30 days of free self-storage or U-Box should contact the nearest participating location (alphabetized by city).
