Eight U-Haul® locations in the greater St. Louis area are offering 30 days of free self-storage and U-Box® container usage to residents who have been impacted by severe flooding.
Record rainfall brought widespread flooding, road closures and home damage to the region. Firefighters have had to rescue people from flooded residences and roadways.
“Countless families have watched as their homes take on water, leaving damaged possessions behind,” said Aaron Freeman, U-Haul Area District Vice President. “There will be a significant clean-up process in the coming weeks. U-Haul has the infrastructure, services and commitment to aid communities when natural disasters like this occur. Anyone impacted by these storms can make use of a storage room or U-Box container at no cost for one month while availability exists at our cooperating stores.”
