Tornado Recovery: U-Haul Offers 30 Days Free Storage in Chicago’s Western Suburbs

Jun 21, 2021

U-Haul® is offering 30 days of free self-storage and U-Box® container usage at three Illinois facilities to those impacted by the tornado that struck Chicago’s western suburbs Sunday night.

Many residential properties sustained severe damage in the storm, and a number of injuries were reported. Accessibility to local storage can assist in the community’s recovery and rebuilding process.

“There were over 125 damage reports filed after the tornado tore through our communities,” stated Angela Farley, U-Haul Company of Chicago Western Suburbs president. “As our neighbors begin the process of cleaning up, we want to provide them with a secure place to store their possessions for 30 days at no cost.”
