U-Haul® is offering 30 days of free self-storage and U-Box® container usage to residents impacted by the rapidly moving wildfire in Upper Tantallon.
Evacuations have been issued for residents of the Westwood Hills subdivision. As of Sunday afternoon, at least 10 homes had burned, and dozens of crews were at the site attempting to control the fire.
“Many of our neighbors are being asked to leave their homes,” said Tracey Higgs, U-Haul Area District Vice President. “We want to support this community during a difficult time by providing a secure place for victims to store their belongings at no cost for one month.”
With numerous families displaced and homes that will require repairs, having accessibility to secure self-storage during the clean-up process is always beneficial to communities affected by natural disasters.
The U-Haul disaster relief program applies to new self-storage unit rentals and is based on availability. People seeking more information or needing to arrange 30 days of free self-storage should contact:
