Hurricane Lee: U-Haul Offers 30 Days Free Storage in New England as Storm Approaches

Sep 15, 2023

U-Haul® is offering 30 days of free self-storage and U-Box® container usage at 14 stores in Massachusetts and Rhode Island where residents are projected to need recovery assistance after Hurricane Lee.

The storm is forecast to bring heavy rains, strong winds and dangerous rip currents to an already saturated area, increasing the likelihood of additional flooding in residential areas.

“We’ve been dealing with heavy rains all month,” stated Sandie Gardner, U-Haul Company of Rhode Island president. “With more rain in the forecast, along with other weather related to Hurricane Lee, people may need a secure place to store their belongings. This is where U-Haul and our disaster relief program comes into play. We can help our neighbors.”

Earlier this week, U-Haul announced its Northborough, Mass., store would offer one month of free storage after torrential rains created flooding earlier this week. Residents that have already been affected by flooding can make use of the offer from the Northborough store or any of the locations listed below.

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