U-Haul Offers Free Storage after Beryl Causes Flooding, Damage in 3 States

Jul 9, 2024

71 facilities across Texas, Louisiana and Arkansas are extending 30 days of free storage to storm victims

U-Haul® announced 71 stores across Texas, Louisiana and Arkansas are now available to provide 30 days of free self-storage and U-Box® container usage to residents impacted by Hurricane Beryl, now a tropical depression.

Beryl made landfall early Monday along the Texas Gulf Coast, leaving a trail of destruction and dumping heavy rains. Many cities experienced flooding, power outages, and water and wind damage to homes, businesses and automobiles. Houston reported over 2 million residences and businesses without power. Parts of Louisiana sustained flooding, and Arkansas remains on alert.

The clean-up process is expected to take time. Access to dry and secure self-storage rooms and portable storage containers is critical for communities as they recover from Beryl.

The 30-day free offer applies to new self-storage and U-Box rentals and is based on availability. The U-Box offer is for on-site storage at U-Haul facilities where there is inventory.
