/PRNewswire/ -- The U-Haul Company of Western Mass. and
is offering 30 days of free self-storage and U-Box pods for moving and self-storage to residents and business owners located at 65 Main Street in
who were forced to evacuate and move their belongings away from the building severely damaged by this past Saturday's fire.
With U-Box pod moving and self-storage you can conveniently pick up our custom-designed trailer and take your U-Box pod with you. We can also store the U-Box pod in our secure warehouse or even pick up and deliver it to a location of your choice.
In addition to the 30-days-free self-storage assistance being offered, people who need boxes can take advantage of the U-Haul Take a Box, Leave a Box Program. The program enables customers to return their reusable boxes and allows others to take them as needed – FREE. U-Haul encourages anyone who has any type of reusable box to drop it off at the nearest U-Haul location and allow another family to reuse the box, free of charge, instead of throwing the reusable box into the recycling bin.
Families needing more information about the 30-days-free self-storage assistance program should contact one of the following U-Haul centers.

"This fire caused tremendous amounts of damage and has displaced dozens," said
, president, U-Haul Company of Western Mass. and
. "I hope this effort will help provide assistance to any of those individuals who need support. We will do our best to help our friends and neighbors in this time of need."
U-Haul was founded by a Navy veteran who grew up during the Great Depression. Tires and gas were still rationed or in short supply during the late 1940s when U-Haul began serving U.S. customers. Today, that background is central to the U-Haul Sustainability Program: "Serving the needs of the present without compromising the ability of future generations to meet their own needs." Our commitment to reduce, reuse and recycle includes fuel-efficient moving vans, neighborhood proximity, moving box reuse, moving pads made from discarded material and packing peanuts that are 100% biodegradable.
