/PRNewswire/ -- The U-Haul Company of
is offering 30 days of free self-storage and U-Box pods for moving and self-storage to residents of the apartment complex in
who need to evacuate and move their belongings away from the recently damaged property resulting from this evening's 4-alarm 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. U-Haul 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. U-Haul also urges customers to stop in to ensure that their propane tanks are topped off, since propane is a good thing to have on hand in the event of long term power outages.
Families needing more information about the 30-days-free self-storage assistance program should contact the following U-Haul regional office.
