Spokane Wildfires: U-Haul Offers 30 Days Free Self-Storage to Victims

Aug 24, 2023

U-Haul® is offering 30 days of free self-storage and U-Box® container usage to residents in and around Spokane impacted by two active wildfires.

The Gray Fire and Oregon Road Fire have already destroyed hundreds of structures and burned thousands of acres. Evacuations have been issued for many residents as crews attempt to contain the fires.

Numerous families are displaced and have homes that will require repairs. Having accessibility to secure self-storage is always beneficial to communities affected by natural disasters.

“One of the scariest things in life is being told to leave your home because of an unpredictable wildfire,” said Travis Lewis, U-Haul Company of Inland Northwest president. “The least we can do is support our community during a difficult time. For anyone who needs help, we have two facilities providing free storage at no cost for one month.”

Participating locations

The U-Haul disaster relief program applies to new self-storage unit rentals and is based on availability at each facility. People seeking more information or needing to arrange 30 days of free self-storage should contact the nearest participating facility:
