U-Haul Extends 30 Days Free Self-Storage at All Texas Stores

Feb 18, 2021

U-Haul® is offering 30 days of free self-storage and U-Box® container usage to Texas residents across the entire state impacted by the ongoing winter storms and widespread power outages.

The disaster relief assistance program is being extended at 171 Company-owned and -operated storage facilities in Texas. Visit uhaul.com/storage to locate a U-Haul storage facility near you. Contact the store by phone, or visit in person, to take advantage of the offer.

The free month of storage is available to customers renting new units and is subject to vacancy at each U-Haul facility.

Accessibility to clean, dry and secure storage can assist communities with their recovery efforts, particularly for residents that have had frozen pipes burst and cause home damage.

“Folks are facing severe water damage in some instances, and we want to offer every one of our Texas neighbors in need a secure place to store their belongings at no cost for one month,” said Matt Merrill, U-Haul Area District Vice President. “We have the expertise and infrastructure to help, and that’s exactly what we’re going to do.”

The 30 days free offer applies to U-Box® portable storage containers as well. With 257 cubic feet of space and one-ton capacity, U-Box containers can be filled at U-Haul facilities and stored in secure warehouses.

More Propane to Meet Demand

U-Haul is also working diligently with multiple propane suppliers to ensure it can keep up with demand across Texas. “With the rolling blackouts, people are relying on propane to keep warm,” Merrill said.

U-Haul, the largest U.S. retailer of propane since 1987, serves thousands of propane customers daily at more than 1,150 Company-owned and -operated stores where the fuel is offered. Find a refill station near you at uhaul.com/propane.

In addition to its 30 days free disaster relief program, U-Haul is proud to be at the forefront of aiding communities in times of need as an official American Red Cross Disaster Responder.
