U-Haul® is offering 30 days of free self-storage and U-Box® container usage at two Shreveport facilities to residents impacted by the tornado and severe storms that hit the region on Tuesday night.
High-speed winds damaged many buildings and homes across Caddo Parish. Accessibility to local storage can assist in the community’s recovery and rebuilding after natural disasters.
“As our neighbors begin the process of cleaning up, we want to provide them with a secure place to store their possessions,” stated Warren Iles, U-Haul Company of Northern Louisiana president. “Many of our own U-Haul Team Members live in these communities and have seen the destruction left behind. We want to be there for those in need. We urge anyone needing a secure place to store their belongings to give us a call and receive a free storage unit or U-Box container for one month.”
Customers needing boxes can utilize the Take a Box, Leave a Box program. U-Haul offers an in-store area where customers can drop off used boxes in good condition, and other members of the community can access the boxes at no cost. U-Haul encourages anyone who has reusable boxes to drop them at the nearest U-Haul store location for this purpose.
