Idalia Storm Prep: 54 U-Haul Stores in Florida Offer Free Self-Storage

Aug 28, 2023

U-Haul® is offering 30 days of free self-storage and U-Box® container usage at 54 facilities across Florida to residents who stand to be impacted by Tropical Storm Idalia, soon to be Hurricane Idalia.

The tropical storm is moving through the Gulf of Mexico and is expected to become a hurricane before making landfall in Florida later this week, potentially creating widespread flooding issues.

Accessibility to secure self-storage is always beneficial to communities before and after natural disasters.

“The National Hurricane Center is warning residents to prepare for strong storm surges and forceful winds,” said Bob Magyar, U-Haul Company of West Tampa president. “Having an emergency plan in place is important. U-Haul is helping by making locations available where folks can store their belongings free for up to a month.”

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.
