30 Days Free Storage Offered to Michigan Tornado Victims

May 9, 2024

U-Haul® is offering 30 days of free self-storage and U-Box® container storage to residents impacted by the tornadoes that tore through several counties in southern Michigan this week, leaving widespread damage in their wake.

The impact of these storms was felt in Kalamazoo, St. Joseph, Branch and Cass counties, among other areas. Many victims are now dealing with substantial home, business and property damage.

Access to dry and secure U-Haul self-storage rooms and portable storage containers is essential for communities during the clean-up process after natural disasters.

Melissa Pearl, U-Haul Company of Central Michigan president, has made seven facilities available to offer the disaster relief program across the affected region.

“U-Haul is a proud part of these communities, and great communities work together through the tough times when disaster strikes,” Pearl said. “We want people to know we are available to help.”

The 30-day free offer applies to new self-storage and U-Box rentals and is based on availability. The U-Box offer is limited to on-site storage at U-Haul facilities (does not include delivery to or pick-up from residential locations).

People seeking more information or needing to arrange storage services should contact their nearest participating facility.
