Stay Warm and Safe this Winter with U-Haul Propane Tips

Dec 19, 2023

Winter is coming, and U-Haul® is encouraging its customers to replenish their propane supply for heating and cooking purposes before the busy holiday weeks and harsh winter storms arrive.

Propane sales typically spike in late December and January as families and businesses put their patio heaters and fire pits to use. Demand for propane also rises when heavy snowfall or deep freezes occur, leading to longer waits at stores and greater difficulty reaching propane locations. It’s best to follow the boy scout motto and be prepared.

Propane, a clean-burning fuel, is sold at more than 1,200 U-Haul locations across the U.S. and Canada. U-Haul-operated stores are open every day of the year except Christmas.

Five Tips to Remember

1. Keep propane tanks off the ground to prevent rust
2. Cover your grill to protect it from the elements
3. Store tanks in ventilated areas; do NOT store in sheds, garages or homes
4. Propane heaters should ONLY be used for patios, outdoor job sites and large ventilated workshops
5. Avoid refill trips during winter storms by filling tanks now

U-Haul has been the largest U.S. retailer of propane since 1987 while offering a variety of tanks, gauges and accessories right at the pump. Certified technicians perform free safety inspections on every propane cylinder filled at U-Haul.

“Safety is our top priority,” said Scott Johnson, U-Haul Propane Manager. “Providing safe and convenient propane locations to our customers is important. We’re thrilled to continue expanding our propane offerings, bringing more and more customers the affordable propane they need.”

Purchase new U-Haul propane tanks and portable propane heaters at uhaul.com. Tanks are also available in-store and have a 12-year initial certification lifespan.

U-Haul continues to add propane refill stations and tank exchange services to its centers. Below are the latest locations to include propane services:
